Dental Implants In South Austin, TX
In the past, the only option was bridges or dentures if a patient lost teeth, but today there are so many wonderful solutions to rebuilding smiles after tooth loss. For our healthy adult patients who are missing one or more permanent teeth, we often recommend dental implants. We understand that after tooth loss, a patient is really looking for what’s going to give them a false tooth that is as close to their natural teeth. They want to be able to talk, chew, and smile without worrying about their artificial tooth. We understand that, which is why we offer dental implants.
How Dental Implants Work
The bottom part of the implant, which looks like a screw, is placed in your jaw during a simple in-office procedure. The screw is made of titanium, a material that is biocompatible, meaning your body won’t reject it. In fact, over time your body will grow more bone to fuse with the dental implant. The implant screw becomes firmly embedded in your bone and won’t move.
Benefits of Dental Implants:
- Dental implants look completely natural
- Dental implants are cleaned by simple brushing and flossing
- Dental implants won’t ever move around
- Dental implants can last throughout your lifetime
- Dental implants won’t ever decay and they resist stain
5 Extraordinary Benefits of Dental Implants
Thinking about dental implants? Dental implants are the gold standard in the replacement of teeth. Daniel W Quick DDS in Austin, TX offers a full range of dental services, including dental implants. Here are five extraordinary benefits of dental implants.
#1- Beautify Your Smile
Missing teeth can ruin a beautiful smile. Dental implants can fill in your smile's gaps and improve your appearance. Dental implants are the next best thing to natural teeth. With dental implants, you will look and feel younger and more attractive.
#2- Improve Oral Function
Dental implants fit, feel, and act like natural teeth. Missing teeth can make it difficult for people to pronounce certain words. Dental implants can improve your clarity of speech. Tooth loss can also make it difficult for people to chew food. With dental implants, you will experience a dramatic improvement in chewing ability.
#3- Stop Jawbone Loss
The most common cause of jawbone loss is a missing tooth left unreplaced. Dental implants help to prevent bone loss and stimulate bone growth. Dental implants distribute chewing forces throughout the bone and minimize the wearing away of the bone.
#4- Prevent Teeth Shifting
Although your teeth feel as if they are set in the jawbone, they are capable of drifting out of place. When people lose a tooth, the surrounding teeth begin to shift out of place. Dental implants can prevent your existing teeth from moving out of place.
#5- Increase Your Self-Esteem
Losing a tooth can be a traumatic experience for many people. Tooth loss can lead to low self-esteem which can affect the quality of a people's lives in many different ways. Dental implants can restore your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
