Living without your teeth prevents you from maintaining a normal diet, it can leave you feeling less confident, create a more dated look, and it can lead to jawbone deterioration. When you visit our Richardson office, we can help you overcome these limitations by placing dental implants, which are the most reliable form of tooth replacement available. Read on to learn about their many benefits and discover why it’s well worth your time to pay Dr. Davis a visit!
Unlike other forms of tooth replacement that rely on the surrounding teeth, suction or adhesive to maintain their position, your dentist in Richardson takes a different route with the dental implant process. It starts with her surgically inserting a titanium post into your jawbone that mimics the natural function of your missing tooth root. The implant is then secured through a natural process called osseointegration, where new bone cells fuse with the dental implant to create a degree of stability that can only be matched by your original tooth root.
As we’ve discussed, the primary benefit of a dental implant is that it’s attached to the jawbone. However, this aspect of the process gives rise to the following other advantages:
At our Richardson office, we place dental implants for patients of all ages, because living without any number of teeth is a problem, no matter what demographic you fit into. Before the process commences, though, you’ll undergo a complete dental examination. Therefore, if there is any restorative work that needs to be completed or you’re lacking sufficient bone mass to support a dental implant, Dr. Davis can work with you to develop an appropriate counter strategy.
