When we replace your missing teeth with dental implants, we provide a long-lasting and durable solution that helps preserve your facial structure too. But the restorations are what address the visible portions of your smile, and ensures they look and function like natural teeth. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX, dentist will explain how we craft and place these custom-made restorations.
The Implant Placement Process
To ensure your new smile functions and looks like a real one, you first need roots to support them. With dental implants, we insert biocompatible titanium roots into the jawbone via oral surgery. The body accepts these as natural roots, which means the flow of calcium and phosphorus to the jawbone that was halted following tooth loss resumes. This stimulates the growth of tissue and preserves not only your facial structure, but your new tooth or teeth as well. We employ advanced technology to plan and guide the process, ensuring new roots that properly support a tooth, enabling you to smile with confidence, and eat your favorite foods again!
Crowns and Bridges
What about the visible portion of your new smile, the parts people see when you laugh and speak? For an individual dental implant, we will attach a crown. The crown is custom-made from durable and lifelike materials. We tint it blend with your smile, and the material can absorb daily bite forces and pressures. If you have lost up to three or four teeth in a row, then we may support a bridge, again custom-made to ensure a lifelike appearance.
A New Smile
What if you have experienced total or near-total, tooth loss? To provide a new smile, we will insert multiple implant posts into each arch. We may need to extract any few remaining teeth as well, which we can do same-day. The next step to design and craft a new set of teeth that fits and functions like a natural smile. We attach these to the implant posts, which provides a fixed solution to your tooth loss. You can smile with confidence, eat your favorite foods, and never need to worry about slipping restorations or removing your smile to soak it at your bedside. If you have any questions about obtaining a new smile, then please contact our team today. We want to help you start 2021 on the road toward a full and stunning smile. Remember, you can put any remaining dental insurance benefits to use before they expire at the end of December.
