Aesthetic dentistry: improving the smile with dental implants

While some patients put up with having a gap in their smile after tooth loss, others are well aware of the consequences of not replacing these teeth. This includes ineffective eating and speaking, as well as cosmetic concerns. For some, the existing teeth around the space shift, requiring orthodontic treatment to resolve. Instead, patients need to be proactive about talking to their dentist about tooth replacement options, including the ever-popular dental implants. 

What are dental implants? 

Our dentists at Clear Lake Dental Care and Implant Center describe the dental implant as a fixed, permanent tooth root replacement made of metal, typically titanium, which is biocompatible with the body. These implants are small posts that are placed during oral surgery in our Webster, TX area practice. The portion above the gumline is called the abutment, and is used to attach a crown, bridge, or denture. Because of this versatility, dental implants can replace one, several, or all the teeth in the dental arch. 

Why choose dental implants? 

When it comes to tooth replacement options, dental implants are highly desirable over alternatives such as bridges and dentures. They are long-lasting, easy to care for, and function and appear as natural teeth. 

Who is a good candidate for dental implants? 

To be the ideal candidate for dental implants, patients will need to undergo a thorough evaluation with their dentist and team. X-rays are used to look at the health of the jawbone and determine if a dental implant can be placed with success. Without enough bone, the procedure will not benefit the patient, and other options may be discussed. Patients serious about having dental implants placed but do not have sufficient bone may want to think about the possibility of building up the jaw with bone grafting.
