Implant Dentistry Dallas TX
There are a number of reasons that a patient might be missing a tooth or multiple teeth, ranging from injury or infection to congenital defects or necessary extraction. In the absence of permanent teeth, the bone in the jaw begins to deteriorate over time, potentially causing additional tooth loss. In addition, patients with missing teeth may suffer from nutritional deficiencies and a diminished sense of self-confidence, both of which negatively impact quality of life in general. Fortunately, there is a solution to missing teeth that solves all of these problems: dental implants.
Restorative Implant Dentistry for Patients in Dallas
Over the past decade, dental implants have rapidly become the preferred restorative dental solution for patients who are missing one or more teeth. A dental implant is a small, biocompatible titanium post that is placed in the empty socket where a natural tooth once stood. During the recovery period following implant surgery, the post becomes fused with the jawbone for unparalleled structural integrity and stability. This process is called osseointegration, and it aids in the preservation of healthy bone tissue in the jaw.
Unlike removable dental prosthetics like dentures, dental implants are securely anchored within the bone of the jaw. Following placement of the implant itself, a customized, life-like replacement tooth is fabricated for you and Dr. Loftus affixes it to the post. This completes your restoration, allowing you to once again speak, chew, and smile with natural comfort and confidence.
