Here’s more information about dental implants in Woodlands. Learn if you might be a candidate.Missing a tooth has devastating effects on your oral health and self esteem. Smiling and talking to others may feel embarrassing without your tooth. Eating and chewing your food becomes difficult, and your digestion and health may suffer. Your oral health suffers because the integrity of your bone and your teeth are compromised. Your teeth will begin shifting into the open space, which puts them at risk for periodontal disease or fractures. Your bone begins to lose density when your root is missing, which changes the appearance of your face and puts you at risk for more tooth loss. Dental implants in Woodlands may be the solution you’ve been seeking, however are you a candidate for implants?

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants boast a 95% success rate because they replace both your root and your tooth. Your new root is comprised of a titanium post, which is biocompatible and integrates with your bone during the healing period. This creates a firm foundation for your new tooth, which is a high quality porcelain crown that your dentist will custom design to match your existing teeth and naturally complement your smile.

Am I a Candidate For Dental Implants?

Dental implants do require two things to be successful. One is that the patient has enough healthy bone structure to support the dental implant, and two is that the patient is in good overall health. If you have outstanding dental work that needs to be done, having it completed prior to implant treatment is a good idea to ensure that you have optimum oral health.

What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants mimic your natural tooth, therefore they’re easy to care for as you’ll brush and floss them along with your natural teeth. They also function as your natural tooth would, so talking, smiling and eating become enjoyable once again. Your dentist will custom blend your implant to match your smile, so no one will ever know that your tooth was missing.

Dental implants are also very durable. With an excellent home care routine and regular check ups from your dentist, your dental implant can potentially last for a lifetime.
