Dental implants can restore multiple missing teeth for Longview area residents

Most of us probably remember losing some teeth as a child. When our new "permanent" teeth came in, many of us were also inclined to believe that we'd have those teeth for the rest of our lives. The truth is, almost 2/3 of American adults ages 35-44 are missing at least one tooth. For those people who are missing teeth, not all is lost. Dental implants are a reliable, comfortable, strong, and natural-looking option to replace missing teeth.

Dental implants can be used to replace just one tooth or multiple teeth. Unlike removable dentures, dental implants actually provide stabilization within the structure of the mouth. They can help preserve the jawbone, and give you back the ability to eat and speak properly.

Dental implants are titanium rods that are surgically placed into the jawbone. After the procedure, the implant heals and through a process called osseointegration, it fuses with the natural bone, becoming part of its structure.

Once the implants have become fused, they act just like natural tooth roots. A tooth-colored ceramic restoration is then matched to your natural tooth color and attached to the implant. The pressure of chewing is absorbed by the jawbone, which helps to keep it strong and prevent bone loss, which is a common occurrence with missing teeth.

Dental implants allow the patients all of the advantages of natural teeth as well as helping to preserve the health of the jaw bone and maintain overall oral health. Dental implants are a healthy and beautiful restoration.

In addition, implants can help you have your self-confidence back! Say goodbye to dental adhesives and loose dentures forever. With dental implants, you can have confidence that your teeth will look and feel great. Implants are one of the most effective ways to have your magnificent smile back.

We are committed to helping you restore that beautiful, youthful smile that you once called your own.
