Deer Park Texas patients want a beautiful smile, and a smile that is missing a tooth, much less multiple teeth, is not considered to be attractive. Patients that are missing teeth are sometimes too scared or embarrassed to smile. Social problems aside, missing teeth can cause other dental problems such as bone loss in the jaw, abnormal bites and Temporomandibular disorders (problems with your jaw joint).
Dental implants are the most advanced tooth replacements available. Smiling with missing teeth can be very embarrassing. However, with dental implants you can definitely have a great smile again. Dental implants are the far superior tooth replacement options when compared to dentures of dental bridges.
