Even with proper dental care, there may come a time when you lose one or more of your natural teeth. Tooth loss is unfortunate as it affects your smile, bite, oral health, and ability to chew. At Lone Star Smiles, Lubbock, Texas, we help resolve tooth loss problems with dental implants. A dental check-up from Dr. Cole Sutak can determine if implants are a viable option for you. If you’re unfamiliar with dental implants, these facts provide greater insight into their effectiveness.
Implants come closest to matching natural teeth in strength and durability. This is because the implant is permanently embedded into your bone for stability and support. A porcelain crown is then placed on the implant to act as your replacement tooth.
Dental implants closely resemble the appearance of natural teeth. Dr. Cole Sutak will match the color and shape of your implant crown to your natural teeth so that it blends in seamlessly with your smile.
Implants act like tooth roots, preventing bone loss to keep your jawbone from receding after losing natural teeth and ruining your appearance.
The dental implant process may be lengthy, but it isn’t dangerous or complicated. Once embedded in your bone, implants may take three to six months to integrate into your system before a crown can be added to complete the procedure. Dental implant surgery is considered routine by dentists today and has a 98% success rate as restorative dental care.
Dental implants are easy to care for, requiring only routine brushing, flossing, and professional dental cleaning – just like your natural teeth.
