Are you facing tooth loss? Maybe you’ve already lost a few teeth in your smile? The best thing you can do for you and your oral health is to replace your teeth. When choosing the most fitting tooth replacement, you should weigh your options. There is one replacement that has most restorations beat by a long run: dental implants in New Braunfels. The team at Comal Dental can place dental implants to replace your teeth for the most natural looking and feeling tooth replacement option—no matter how many teeth you’re missing!
Dental Implants or Natural Teeth? You Can’t Tell the Difference!
Dental implants are the best way to replace teeth because they replace both your visual crown and the tooth root that lies beneath the surface of your smile.
When you think of replacing your teeth, most patients first think of dentures or another traditional dental prosthetic. Since dentistry has made strides over the years, we’re able to replace both the root (a critical part of your tooth below the gum line) and the crown (what everyone sees when you smile) of a dying or lost tooth. The actual dental implant is a tiny titanium post that mimics the root of your tooth to restore your smiles full health—not just aesthetics. Then, of course, we attach the best fitting dental prosthetic for your level of tooth loss.
Replacing a single tooth is so simple!
One way a dental implant is commonly used is replacing a single tooth. During this procedure, your dentist in New Braunfels will place your dental implant post within your jaw where the lost tooth once was. Once it heals and fuses with your body, Dr. Earnest will attach an abutment and dental prosthetic. You will have a tooth that looks and functions just like your natural tooth once did before you know it!
Dental Implants Can Even Replace Consecutive Missing Teeth!
Even though you may need two, three, or four consecutive teeth to be replaced, this dental problem can be easily addressed with just strategically placed dental implants. The only difference is that instead of attaching one prosthetic to your healed dental implants, two prosthetics will be attached (tooth-colored crowns—a dental bridge) to fill the gap. If you happen to have multiple teeth in separate places of your mouth, you’ll need to discuss your more options with Dr. Earnest.
Missing Teeth Sporadically? Dental Implants Can Still Get the Job Done!
If you’re missing teeth throughout your mouth but not right next to one another, there is a solution for you: partial dentures. This dental prosthetic can fit in between your permanent teeth just like the perfect puzzle piece. The best part is that instead of having to use clasps or unpleasant adhesives to keep your dental prosthetic in place, we can methodically place your dental implants into the correct spaces and stabilize your prosthetic for good.
Facing Severe Tooth Loss? Dental Implants Can Replace a Full Arch of Teeth!
Most patients that have lost that many teeth are forced to experience inconveniences like slippage, jaw bone deterioration, and unpleasant adhesives with traditional prosthetics. But with dental implants, they will simply snap onto your implant posts!
