What You Should Know about Dental Implants
For some patients, dental implants are a good choice for replacing missing teeth. If you are missing teeth, you should talk to your dentist about what choices you have to remedy this condition. If you don’t replace the missing teeth, your bite can be negatively impacted, which can lead to discomfort and problems with chewing food. Left untreated over a long period of time, your face may actually change shape as a result of missing teeth.
Many patients choose dental implants as a means of replacing missing teeth. These dental appliances are comprised of an artificial tooth and roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone of the patient. The process takes a period of several months to complete, but the end result is very much like getting a brand new tooth.
Dental implants are quite strong and durable, but they may need to be re-tightened or replaced after several years.
The Process Involved in Getting a Dental Implant
If you choose to replace a missing tooth with a dental implant, you’ll need to visit our Elgin, TX office several times over a period of months. The procedure includes having an impression made of your jaw and teeth, surgically placing the artificial root into your jawbone, allowing that root to heal, and finally affixing the artificial tooth to the root. Although it can take six months or longer to complete (depending on how quickly you heal), the result will be very much like getting a brand new tooth.
