At Hebron Smiles, we often recommend dental implants for tooth restoration. Whether you are missing one tooth, or an entire arch, it is vital that you seek a solution for replacement. Although we are proud to offer multiple options to restore smiles after tooth loss, dental implants remain at the top of the list.
After tooth loss, there are generally three main options: dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants.
Dental implants are quickly becoming the preferred option because they function like natural teeth, they are permanent, and they can last a patient’s lifetime. While it’s true that dental implants have the highest upfront cost, they do not need to be replaced, which is part of what makes them so desirable.
So, what are dental implants?
The implants are replacements for natural roots. They are made of titanium and surgically placed into the jawbone where they will fuse for stability. Once the site has properly healed a dental prosthetic such as a crown or denture can be attached to the implant. The implant holds the prosthetics securely in place to allow optimal functionality. Dental implants are the closest tooth restoration option to natural teeth, allowing patients to enjoy their favorite foods and smile with confidence.
While the loss of teeth can be traumatic, there is hope in the form of dental implants. If you are in the Carrollton area, call the team at Hebron Smiles today.
