As one of the newest and most successful tooth replacement solutions at the Houston Dentists, dental implants are a popular cosmetic dental option. Dr. Frazar and her staff often advocate for dental implants as the best possible cosmetic dental treatment offered in Houston for missing teeth.

Dental Implants replace the tooth root

A major advantage of dental implants over other cosmetic dental solutions is that they fill gaps with a prosthetic tooth, but also replace the root of the tooth itself with a titanium post. When the titanium post is implanted into the jaw, the gums and surrounding bone grow around the post, securing it firmly in place. The titanium post and the design of the implant help it become stable and permanent, making it a better alternative to other treatments.

An additional benefit is that titanium is bio-compatible. This means that the dental implant will not be rejected by your body. Because of this, dental implants have the highest success rates for Houston dental patients than any other surgically implanted device.

No harm is done to existing teeth

Prior to using dental implants, dental bridges were commonly used as a tooth replacement option. Dental bridges filled in gaps with an artificial tooth that was anchored to neighboring teeth utilizing crowns and framework. This puts pressure on natural teeth over time, causing unnecessary damage to the existing teeth. Because dental implants use the artificial titanium root, no additional support is required from the other teeth in your mouth. This prevents the risk of damage to your other teeth.

Dental Implants support your facial structure

If you do not have a healthy jaw bone, dental implants may help to strengthen it. When dental implants are placed, they can encourage bone to regenerate and begin to heal. Having a healthy jaw bone will help you retain your facial structure and maintain a more youthful look.

Dental Implants look natural and discreet

Denture and other tooth loss solutions can be embarrassing, especially if they are not stable in the mouth. Movement when eating or speaking can draw unwanted attention to the false teeth. Houston dental patients love the more secure, discreet fit that dental implants provide. Most patients forget that they have a false tooth since dental implants feel just like your natural teeth.

Dental implants last longer than other options

Common cosmetic dental restorations, such as bridges, typically require maintenance and replacement. These fixes cost money and many only last around five years. Dental implants, when cared for properly and regularly checked by Dr. Frazar and the staff at the Houston Dentists, can last for decades.
