Dr. David Earnest is the implant dentist New Braunfels trusts. At Comal Dental, you’ll find several options for dental implants, the best option in tooth replacement — and the one that’s right for you will depend on several factors. Keep reading to learn more about your choices with dental implants in New Braunfels.
Dental Implants: Understanding Your Options
When you’ve lost one or more teeth, one thing is for sure — they’ve got to be replaced. Dr. Earnest offers traditional dental implants as well as same-day teeth.
Traditional Dental Implants
Traditional dental implants are the best option for replacing one, several or a whole row of missing teeth. They’re tiny titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the space left by each missing tooth. Over a period of six months, the titanium gradually bonds with the jawbone to form one solid unit. This process, also known as osseointegration, gives you the stability you need to eat, speak and smile with renewed confidence.
For single tooth replacements, the dental implant will be topped with a beautiful crown. Several teeth missing in succession may be best served by dental implants with a fixed bridge, and a whole row of missing teeth can benefit from implant-retained dentures. You and your implant dentist in New Braunfels will thoroughly discuss all of your options.
The benefits of traditional dental implants include:
- Because dental implants provide the stimulation the jawbone needs to stay healthy and whole, you enjoy better oral health with implant-retained prosthetics.
- Dental implants provide unsurpassed stability and freedom from messy denture adhesives.
- When cared for properly, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Same Day Teeth/Full Arch Replacement
A number of factors can affect your candidacy for traditional implants. If you’ve experienced significant bone loss due to missing teeth, if you’re not in optimal health for the implantation procedure or if you just prefer a faster solution, you can benefit from Same Day Teeth.
Same Day Teeth allow your dentist to fit your new prosthetic securely on just four dental implants — and to place your new tooth replacement in the very same appointment. Because it offers good stability for fewer dental implants and less cost, this option is especially good for patients who have lost a whole row of teeth on the top or bottom, a full arch replacement.
Further benefits of Same Day Teeth include:
- Faster results than traditional dental implants can provide.
- Restored ability to eat, speak and smile with confidence.
- No additional procedures needed — everything is completed in just one visit.
- Same Day Teeth are comfortable, natural-looking and easy to care for.
