Replacing adult teeth is important no matter your age and regardless of where in your mouth you are missing a tooth. Not only is replacing adult teeth something to explore for the sake of appearances, leaving a gap in your mouth can cause a plethora of issues, such as bone loss, shifting of other teeth, gum health issues, and changes to the shape of your face. In Uptown Houston, The Houston Dentists can help you explore your options. Dental implants are a very popular option for replacing one or more adult teeth.

Basic Information About Dental Implants

Provided you have sufficient bone in the jaw and no medical conditions that your doctor believes will be negatively affected by dental implants, plus willingness to commit to rigid oral hygiene and avoidance of tobacco products, you may be a good candidate for dental implants. A dental implant consists of a titanium post abutement, and a crown. The post will fuse with your bone and once this, called osseointegration, occurs, your dental implants specialist will fit your mouth with crowns attached to the dental implant that are constructed specifically for your mouth. There is a period where you will wear temporary teeth but you never have to worry about being without teeth.
