Missing teeth are important to replace. Teeth are designed to work together. When teeth are lost chewing and eating can destabilize and cause jaw pain. Teeth do more than just chew food. Teeth help support the facial structure. Lost teeth cause a premature elderly appearance. Also, missing teeth help prevent teeth from shifting because teeth like to have neighbors. When a tooth is lost the remaining teeth will move into the empty space looking for their neighbor tooth. Replacing teeth with dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth. Implant look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime. Friendswood, Texas residents want the best in dental implant care.
A dental implant is a replica of natural teeth. It is designed just like a natural tooth. The implant is a titanium cylinder that is placed in the jaw bone. The surrounding bone loves the titanium and grows around the implant locking the implant in place. Next, the abutment connects to the implant and protrudes out of the gum tissue. The abutment serves as the foundation for the new beautiful porcelain crown.
Another useful aspect of dental implants is they can be utilized to anchor dentures. Old fashioned dentures only rest on the gum tissue. These dentures rub the gum tissue causing sore spots and frequently move. The worst is when old fashioned dentures fall out while talking. Can you imagine the social embarrassment of having your teeth fall out? Dental implants allow the dentures to lock into place. The dental implants provide a secure platform for the dentures.
