Missing teeth can spoil more than your smile. This is why we encourage our patients to get dental implants as part of their teeth replacements. We’ve seen what they have done for many people in and around Rockport, TX.
What are dental implants?
These implants replace the roots of missing teeth. They can support and secure dental restorations such as dental crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Who can get implants?
Almost anyone who is missing teeth can get implants. You do need enough bone tissue in your jaw to hold the implant in place (and we have ways to deal with that if you don’t). If you are missing every one of your teeth, a single tooth, or any number of teeth in between, implants can help you restore your smile.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
In addition to helping you replace missing teeth, implants restore your biting power. This means you can continue to eat the foods that you want to eat, and you don’t need denture adhesives to hold your replacement teeth in your mouth. With implants, you also are preserving the health of your jawbone, which can prevent further tooth loss down the road.
