Replace Missing Teeth & Stabilize Dentures
At Go Dental, we understand the frustration and embarrassment that comes with missing teeth. Not only is your confidence and your ability to eat your favorite foods compromised, but your oral health and facial structure are in danger as well. Dental implants are the number one tooth replacement solution on the market. Give us a call at Go Dental today to find out what dental implants can do for your smile, your confidence, and your quality of life.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium tooth root replacements that are surgically attached to the jawbone, providing support for a tooth replacement – crown, bridge, or denture. If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants can provide unmatched support and stability to help you get your smile and your life back.
Rather than just replacing the crown or the visible portion of the tooth, dental implants are the only way to replace the missing tooth root, which is an essential component of a healthy, functioning smile. Once inserted, your jawbone actually begins to fuse with the implant, preventing jawbone deterioration and stimulating new bone and tissue growth around the implant. Implants are the gold standard in modern tooth replacement technology.
How do dental implants work?
Good question! First, we will, with the utmost precision, surgically insert the implant into the gums. The implant will need a period of several months to allow sufficient time to attach to the jawbone. Once the implant is secure, Dr. Polansky will fit you with a shiny new prosthetic to fit your needs. This can come in the form of a crown, a bridge, or dentures. Before you know it, you’ll be smiling, laughing, and enjoying your favorite foods again with confidence.
Are dental implants right for me?
If you live in the Pflugerville area and are suffering from a missing tooth or multiple teeth, or teeth that are badly damaged by decay or trauma, you might be a perfect candidate for dental implants. To know for sure, you will need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Polansky, your trusted Pflugerville implant dentist. He will assess your individual needs and goals and determine if dental implants might be a good solution for you.
Why replace missing teeth?
Replacing missing teeth is important for many reasons. Aside from the obvious cosmetic or aesthetic reasons – although many American adults will suffer tooth loss at some time in their lives – missing teeth is socially unacceptable in most circles. Apart from restoring your smile to its beautiful, well-functioning condition, Dr. Polansky, your Pflugerville dentist recommends replacing missing teeth for health reasons.
If left untreated, missing teeth can have adverse effects on your oral health – teeth on either side of the gap will begin to shift and rotate, compromising your bite, and the jawbone will actually begin to deteriorate without the supporting tooth root, which causes the ‘sunken face’ appearance. Dental implants help stimulate the jawbone so you can maintain your oral health and facial structure for life.
