Living with one or more missing teeth impacts your life in many ways, from difficulties eating and chewing, to feeling embarrassed about your smile when you meet someone new. You should know, however, that it doesn't have to be this way!
Tooth implants offer an excellent solution for gaps and open spaces in your smile due to tooth loss. Here's what you should know when you're considering dental implants in Wylie, TX to restore your smile.
The Advantages of Choosing Dental Implants
Besides replacing one or multiple teeth and restoring your smile, tooth implants offer many other significant benefits for patients who choose them.
- Implants are a reliable procedure with a 95 percent success rate.
- Dental implants provide the look, feel, and function of a natural tooth.
- You'll have excellent longevity with your new tooth since your implant can potentially last for a lifetime.
- Tooth implants protect against the bone loss that occurs when you lose a tooth.
- Dental implants can replace multiple teeth by supporting a denture or bridge.
Options for Managing Bone Loss
One of the leading causes of tooth loss is gum disease, which is caused by an infection in your bone that results in bone and tooth loss. Bone loss can make it difficult to properly support a dental implant, but the good news is, there are some solutions.
Bone grafting can build and replace lost bone so you can successfully support a tooth implant. Dr. Shah can perform a bone graft procedure here in our Wylie dental office if you need more support for your dental implant.
With x-rays and a thorough examination, Dr. Shah will determine if tooth implants are the right procedure for restoring your lost tooth.
Alternative Solutions for Tooth Loss
For those that aren't good candidates for tooth implants, there are other options like a traditional dental bridge, partial, or denture. Dr. Shah will discuss all of your options with you during an evaluation so you can make the right decision for both your smile and your budget.
