If you’ve lost natural teeth due to injury, age, or disease, and want to restore your smile, the sooner you replace them, the better. One of the most effective means of replacing lost teeth is dental implant treatment. Dental implants look, act, and feel like natural teeth and can last a lifetime, resolving lost tooth issues permanently. You can come to Lone Star Smiles for dental implant treatment if you live in Lubbock, Texas, or surrounding communities.
Losing natural teeth will not only impact your smile but your tooth health and function as well. Over time, your remaining teeth may start to shift to fill in the gap left by lost teeth, which can alter your bite and alignment. Missing teeth can cause jawbone loss, which can alter the structure of your face and jaw. Lost teeth can make it difficult to chew, restrict what you can eat, or affect pronunciation and speech. These issues can be resolved by replacing missing teeth with dental implants.
Dental implants offer a permanent solution to replacing missing teeth as the process entails embedding an implant base into your jawbone and integrating it into your system. Once this base has become a permanent structure in your mouth, a crown is attached to act as your replacement tooth. Before scheduling implant treatment, Dr. Cole Sutak will evaluate your teeth, gums, and jawbone to confirm you’re a good candidate for this procedure.
