When a patient is missing one or more permanent teeth, Dr. Deore and Dr. Jones may recommend dental implants in Coppell, Texas. A dental implant is made of a titanium implant post and a dental restoration. The implant post is surgically placed in the jawbone by a specialist, where it acts as replacement tooth roots. The dental restoration, which can be a dental crown, dental bridge, or dentures, is attached to the top of the dental implant by our dentists.
Dental implants have many advantages. They look and feel like your natural teeth, so they are very aesthetic. Dental implants are made to fuse with your jawbone, so they become a permanent part of your smile. Dental implants are very durable, lasting many years, or even a lifetime. Unlike a dental bridge, dental implants do not require tooth reduction. Because your tooth structure is spared, your long-term oral health is improved. Patients who wear dentures may have difficulty with speaking and eating properly, as dentures can slip in the mouth. Because dental implants are a permanent part of your smile, you will be able to speak and eat all of your favorite foods with ease.
