Dental Implants


Understanding dental implants

At one time, the only choice that you would have had if you were missing teeth is to have dentures. Since that time, there are many alternatives that have become available, including the use of dental implants. You get your smile back in a way that looks and seems as if it is completely natural. As a matter of fact, implants are probably the best choice that you have available if you want to have a natural looking smile while missing teeth. What are implants, and how can you have them included in your smile? Here are some common questions that are asked about this dental procedure.

First of all, you may be wondering if you are a candidate for having an implant included for replacing teeth. In reality, there are very few people who are not candidates for this type of dentistry. As a matter of fact, as long as you are in reasonable health and are missing teeth that you would like to have replaced, it is going to be possible for you to have it done. Of course, you are going to need to have bone in the area so that the new tooth can be anchored properly. Implants are commonly included for replacing small bridges or removable dentures that cover part of your missing teeth.

Another common question is in regards to the structure of the implant that is being included. A dental implant is a screw that is placed in your jawbone. It acts as an anchor so that a false tooth or false teeth can be included in the area. When you use Don Lanning, DDS at Argyle Dental Connection for any type of dental needs, we will take care of those needs professionally and compassionately.


Other dental options that you may want to consider

 

Although implants can certainly help you to replace missing teeth, there are also other options that you may want to consider. If you are missing several teeth in the same area or if you are missing all of your teeth, dentures or partials can provide a way for you to make up the difference. Another option that you have is to have a bridge included, which will be artificial teeth that are permanently put into place.

If you have any questions about your dental health or if you would like information about the options that are available to you, you can call Argyle Dental Connection. We help many people in the Flower Mound and Denton area to love their smile again.
