Millions of Americans are missing one or more of their teeth. Many of them are self-conscious about it, and seldom smile. If you are one of them, you can do something about it with a dental implant Crabtree Dental in Katy.
Dental implants have been called the most significant development in dentistry in the last half century. What was once a scientific marvel has evolved into mainstream dentistry.
Implants are titanium posts that are surgically implants into your jaw. They fuse with the bone, and because they go where the tooth root once was, they can help to prevent bone loss.
An artificial tooth goes on top of the titanium post. Once they are in place, dental implants look and function like natural teeth. With today’s digital technology, dental implants can be placed in the patient’s jaw with nearly one hundred percent accuracy.
One caveat: you need to have enough bone mass to support the implant. Even if you don’t, there is a solution: bone grafting can give you enough.
Most patients who receive a dental implant find that they are stable, and an excellent replacement for their missing tooth. Implants can also be used to anchor dentures.
Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant can transform your life. To find out more, call Crabtree Dental in Katy. We also serve Fulshear and Cinco Ranch, providing cosmetic and general dentistry. Schedule a consultation with us today.
