Dental Implants in Dallas, TX
Dental Implants & Implant-Supported Dentures
A dental implant is a special, surgical grade titanium post, manufactured to highly precise specifications, that is surgically inserted into the jawbone below the gum surface. As the bone bonds to the implant, it forms a secure foundation onto which your new teeth are then attached and shaped to match your mouth. With proper use of the newest anesthetics and medications you need not be concerned about pain. The entire procedure can be completed at Dr. Hamlett's office.
The Importance of Tooth Replacement
Missing teeth cause loss of bone and muscle in the face, which dramatically reduces your ability to chew. Lost bone and facial muscle tone not only affect function, but also make you look and feel older. Immediately after teeth are lost the jawbone that contained them begins to resorb. This is because the tooth roots that once stimulated the jawbone no longer exist, and the portion of the jawbone responsible for anchoring teeth in the mouth deteriorates. This is what is responsible for the sagging facial appearance many people experience who suffer from tooth loss.
When permanent teeth are lost, regardless of the reason or number of teeth, dental implants can offer a new lease on life. They are superior to other choices because they are solid, secure, and aesthetic. Implants can help replace a single tooth or a full set of teeth (the number of teeth being replaced will determine the best kind of restoration for you.) If you have been suffering with partial or full dentures, are missing teeth, or feel you need teeth extracted, do not hesitate to call to be evaluated for dental implants in Dallas, TX.
Implant-supported dentures give you a more permanent option for replacing several teeth, or an entire set. After designing perfect, natural looking dentures, Dr. Hamlett will use several implants to anchor the dentures into place, giving you a comfortable, attractive smile — one that does not move when eating!
