Losing one or more teeth compromises your smile, damages your self-esteem, and makes it more difficult to bite and chew as normal. Through the placement of dental implants, you can regain full function and healthy aesthetics, enjoying natural-looking and long-lasting dental restoration. At Periodontal and Implant Surgeons of Houston, we are pleased to provide dental implants for patients in Houston, TX, and the surrounding community.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a procedure for root replacement that provides a firm base for replacement teeth. The replacement teeth can either be fixed or removable. It is performed when individuals lose their teeth due to numerous causes like old age, decay, oral disease, and accidents like a facial injury or a blow to the face. The tooth socket is cleared off of bacteria, and the surface is smoothed out before placing the implant. The procedure for dental implants involves placing the dental implant, a small titanium post, and an abutment onto that post. The fixed or removable teeth are then connected to the abutments.

The new tooth or teeth are built by taking impressions of the existing teeth. A bite model of your mouth is constructed for making the replacement teeth in a dental laboratory. Lastly, a crown is placed over the abutment. Dental implants have many advantages. They help improve speech, comfort, and oral health, allow easier eating, and prevent the facial structure from deteriorating. Periodontal and Implant Surgeons of Houston can provide you with a team of knowledgeable oral surgeons to help you through a dental implant procedure.

Prevention Of Facial Structure Deterioration

Due to tooth loss, the jawbone is left with nothing to stimulate bone growth, so the body considers it unnecessary, and the bone starts to dissolve. This process can result in the deterioration of the facial structure, causing marionette lines and the lips to fold in. Dental implant placement helps prevent the wearing-out of the facial structure by promoting osseointegration. They look, feel, and function like one’s natural teeth.

Everyday Comfort

Unlike dentures, dental implants do not need to be removed and cleaned. The individual can brush and floss their teeth naturally and can also sleep without having to remove them.

Traditional tooth replacement involves the use of bridges. Placing bridges requires re-contouring of the adjacent teeth as well. The clasps used in the bridges can put pressure on the gums of adjacent teeth, causing them to deteriorate. For dental implant placement, no compromising on the adjacent teeth is required. Improving your overall oral health without any side effects.

The replacement teeth supported by dental implants do not cause any slurring or mumbling of speech, making it easier for the individual to speak. They also allow the patient to eat their favorite edibles, which are durable. If properly looked after, dental implants can last for a lifetime.

Improved Overall Health

Since dental implants are easy to care for, maintaining good oral hygiene is easy. It also prevents the patient from acquiring any other oral diseases.

One common oral infection is periodontitis, which is caused by inadequate oral hygiene and plaque buildup. It can have adverse consequences like gum inflammation, recession, bleeding, pocketing, bad breath, and eventually, tooth loss if not treated on time. It can also affect an individual’s overall health by causing severe health issues like cardiovascular diseases, stroke, and more. Easier oral hygiene made possible by dental implants, along with regular visits to your dentist and other oral health professionals, helps prevent periodontitis.
