If you have missing teeth, it is crucial to replace them. Without all your teeth, chewing and eating can destabilize your bite, weaken your other teeth and cause you discomfort. When teeth are missing, your mouth can shift and even cause your face to look older. And of course, having missing teeth can be embarrassing. Some people have avoided doing the things they love because they are embarrassed about their unattractive smile. Dental implants using implant dentistry procedures are a great way to replace your missing teeth.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Implant dentistry is a remarkable option and a rather simple procedure:

    Woman who was an implant dentistry patient near The Colony considered dentures before deciding on dental implants.

  • A tooth implant is a new tooth root made of steel and porcelain that looks just like your natural tooth or better!
  • Your tooth implant is composed of two parts that mimic a tooth’s root and crown. The implant dentistry tooth implant’s “root” is a titanium steel rod placed into the jawbone to act as a root.
  • Once the rod is in place, a porcelain crown is attached to replace the top part of your tooth.

Dental implants may also be used to secure a denture apparatus, especially dentures on your lower teeth that tend to move and can even come out when you talk or chew.
