Dental implants offer an excellent way to replace your lost teeth without sacrificing biting power. If you live in the Dallas or DeSoto, TX, areas, Dr. Solarin of Lantern Dental Clinic can help you improve your smile with innovative implants.
Why should I consider dental implants?
Desoto dental implants are different than other restoration options. While other methods only replace the visible parts of teeth, called the crowns, implants also restore missing roots.
Implants are tiny posts made of titanium that are added to your jawbone during the first step of the implant process. Soon after, the posts begin to fuse to your jawbone. This step ensures that your new roots are securely attached to your jawbone, just like your natural tooth roots. Your implants become a permanent part of your jawbone and will probably never need to be replaced.
After dental implants bond fully to your jawbone, they're attached to dental crowns that replace the tops of your teeth.
Restoring your lost teeth with Desoto dental implants offers a few important benefits for people in DeSota and Dallas, including:
- Ability to Eat a Range of Foods: You'll experience a decrease in your biting power if your teeth aren't firmly rooted in your jawbone. Thanks to your new titanium roots, you'll be able to easily bite, tear, grind and chew foods, even if they're hard, tough or sticky.
- Better Health: Eating foods from all of the food groups is essential to good health. Unfortunately, you may decide to eat primarily soft foods if chewing has become too difficult due to tooth loss. Your improved chewing ability will allow you to receive the vitamins and nutrients you need to stay healthy.
- Stronger Jawbone: Changes may happen to your jawbone soon after tooth loss. Without stimulation from tooth roots, the bone begins to shrink during a process called resorption. As the bone shrinks, your teeth may loosen and fall out. Replacing your natural roots with implants helps prevent resorption from occurring.
- Improved Appearance: In addition to filling noticeable gaps in your smile, implants also help you avoid facial sagging, a problem that can occur due to jawbone resorption.
