Longview enjoys effective tooth replacements with dental implants

Dental implants are the only form of treatment that replaces both the visible part of the teeth and the roots. Implants are placed in the jawbone where they fuse to the bone, creating strong, stable foundations for restorations. They mimic healthy, natural teeth in form, function, and appearance. Dr. Karen E. Frazer recommends dental implants because they offer her Longview patients a number of advantages over other treatments.

  • Protection for healthy bone – When teeth are missing, the jawbone in that area doesn’t get the stimulation needed to continue regenerating itself. It erodes, losing its density and strength. Dental implants transfer chewing forces directly to the bone, which stimulates growth and prevents structure loss.
  • Retain natural facial contours – Missing teeth and lost bone can cause the face to sag and appear sunken. Dental implants allow patients to maintain their smiles and the natural shape of their faces.
  • Long-term solution – With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, whereas dental bridges or dentures may need to be replaced two or more times.
  • Lifelike – Dental implant restorations function, fit, feel, and look like natural teeth.
  • Secure – Patients do not need to feel embarrassed that their teeth do not look natural or be concerned that their restoration might slip out of place when they laugh, talk, or eat.
  • Easy Care – Patients care for implant restored teeth in the same way they have always cared for their natural teeth. Brushing, flossing, and regular dental appointments are all that is required.
  • Speak clearly – Patients may struggle to pronounce certain words while adjusting to removable dentures, but dental implant restorations function and feel like natural teeth, making it easy to speak clearly.
  • Enjoy eating – Patients do not have to hesitate to eat any of their favorite foods. The stability of implant restorations allows them to bite and chew foods naturally.
  • No denture cup or special flossing aids – The teeth stay in patients’ mouths day and night rather than being placed in a cup of water at bedtime as is done with removable dentures. They do not require special flossing aids as are needed to clean under fixed bridges
