If you have empty space where you used to have one or more teeth, we at Baytown Dental Center would like to help you fill it with dental implants, the most advanced way to replace teeth available. When you consider not just the cosmetic implications of missing teeth, but also that your other teeth can shift and cause you discomfort, and that if they’re back teeth you might not be able to chew properly, there is every reason to take action without hesitation.
There are three steps to getting dental implants, and while there is some time involved, it’s all very simple and effective. First, our Panama City cosmetic dentist surgically places a cylindrical titanium post in your jaw. This replaces the root your natural tooth used to have, and is a vital component that you don’t get when you choose a bridge or dentures. Over several months, your jaw bone grows around the post and fuses with it. The second step is the placement of an abutment, which serves to hold the tooth portion securely. And the third step is the tooth-colored crown that is made to fit you perfectly. It is cemented to the post and supported by the abutment to create a 100% reliable replacement tooth; one that looks, feels, and even functions just like your other teeth do. In fact, it’s fair to say that our Panama City cosmetic dentist is giving you something superior to your natural teeth in some ways. Your implant won’t decay, and won’t ever need root canal. Yet, you can talk, laugh, smile, and chew even the toughest foods with complete confidence. Brush it, floss between it and your other teeth, treat is just like any other tooth. No one will be able to tell the difference, maybe not even you.
You can expect that your implant done by our Panama City cosmetic dentist can last you a lifetime, with proper care. Get your full smile back again. Call us and book a consultation to see if you’re a good candidate for an implant.
