Austin Dental implants are the strongest and most reliable form of tooth replacement. Unlike dental bridges, which attach to adjacent teeth, or dentures, which are secured with adhesives, implants are placed into your jawbone where they become accepted as a new tooth root. This process serves the dual purpose of replacing the missing tooth and its root, which is essential for preventing changes to the structure of your jaw.
Cedar Park cosmetic dentist Dr. Dale Williams places customized dental crowns over implants to restore full strength, function, and beauty to your smile. To learn more about this process or to see if dental implants are right for you, please call us at 512-782-0821 today.
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
Missing teeth present both functional and aesthetic issues. Clearly, missing teeth detract from the beauty of your smile, but when teeth are missing for longer periods of time, this will be the least of your concerns.
- Allow adjacent teeth to slip out of place
- Change the tension of your bite
- Diminish chewing and biting abilities
- Allow for an eventual deterioration of bone tissue beneath the missing tooth
When you lose a tooth, its root is lost as well. Tooth roots are important to stimulating the presence of healthy bone beneath the teeth. A missing root may lead to the reabsorption and shrinking of bone beneath the site of the missing tooth. One of the benefits of dental implants is that they replace the missing tooth root. This allows implants to prevent jaw shrinkage and preserve the structure of your face.
