At Edgewater Dental in Sugar Land, Texas, we recommend dental implants as the most viable tooth replacement option given their numerous benefits and advantages. Our dedicated and compassionate dentists are highly experienced in providing the best care for patients with missing teeth and performing oral surgeries. They can easily restore your smile with several implant-supported tooth replacement options, including individual implants, bridges, and dentures.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that serves as an anchor for a permanent tooth replacement. It is made from titanium, a highly durable and biocompatible material.
Dental implants become one with the bone once they are implanted and serve as a stable and sturdy support for artificial teeth or crowns, as well as for dental bridges that replace several missing teeth or permanent dentures that replace an entire dental arch.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a reliable and versatile solution for tooth replacement. They:
- Are a permanent solution for missing teeth
- Fully restore your chewing and speaking functions
- Are stable, long-lasting, and durable
- Maintain your facial structure and help you look younger
- Maintain the integrity of your jaw bone
- Do not negatively impact any remaining neighboring teeth
- Help keep neighboring teeth in position, preventing them from shifting
- Fully restore your confidence and self-esteem
- Are more comfortable and low maintenance than dentures
- Do not move or shift when you eat or speak
Dental Implants at Edgewater Dental in Sugar Land, Texas
Our highly-trained and experienced dentists at Edgewater Dental in Sugar Land, Texas, are dedicated to providing the best options when it comes to restoring your oral functions and your smile after tooth loss.
When you visit our practice for dental implants, we will discuss your options with you during your initial consultation. We will then take X-rays or dental scans as required and review your medical history.
To begin the implant placement procedure, we will first perform any prerequisite procedures such as a bone graft or tooth extraction. Next, we will make a small incision in your gums to place the implant while you are under anesthesia.
Once the implant is in place, the gums are sutured and the implant site is allowed to heal. Once it’s healed, the tooth restoration is attached to the dental implant.
The procedure is straightforward, minimally invasive, and painless.
