When you have a compromised or missing tooth, it impacts more than just your confidence. Sure, you probably don’t feel much like smiling and eating the foods you would typically enjoy can be challenging; but did you know that your missing tooth is also affecting your oral health?
I offer solutions such as dental implants at my Frisco, TX dental office that restore your smile and confidence while also protecting your dental health.
What Happens When You Lose a Tooth?
While you may be feeling self-conscious about smiling, there is also a lot going on behind the scenes when you lose a tooth. First, without a root to support regeneration, your bone begins to dissolve, which could eliminate support for neighboring teeth.
Next, without a tooth replacement, neighboring teeth begin to tilt and drift into the open space causing you a higher risk of developing tooth decay, fractures, and gum disease.
A dental implant protects your bone, while also restoring your smile because it replaces both your root and your tooth, and my team at BRUSH Modern Dentistry can help guide you through the process from start to finish.
Replacing a Tooth with a Dental Implant
The process of choosing a dental implant to restore your smile begins with a consultation with me at BRUSH Modern Dentistry. I will provide a thorough examination and take x-rays to determine if you have enough healthy bone to support your dental implant properly. I spend a lot of time talking with my patients during consultations so we can discuss different treatment options and I can help you select the procedure that is right for not only your oral health but also your lifestyle and budget.
If you move forward with an implant procedure, we have an in-office specialist that handles the surgical placement of your dental implant, and I will restore your tooth with either a crown for a single tooth replacement or a bridge or denture for multiple teeth. I work with the best local dental laboratory to ensure that your restoration is the highest quality possible, which gives you the peace of mind knowing you’ll have both durability and aesthetics for your smile.
I utilize state-of-the-art technology such as 3-D scans of your teeth and bone to plan your implant placement in advance, which ensures accuracy and efficiency on the day of your surgery.
