Replacing Missing Teeth with Implants
If you have a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth but do not need or want a full set of dentures, implants might be right for you. Dental implants are an excellent way to replace missing teeth and they have a natural look and feel. They are constructed to fit into your mouth and match the shape of teeth which have been removed due to decay or which have been lost. Dental implants have three main parts: titanium post, abutment, and the bridge or crown. At Dentiq Dentistry, our Houston dentists are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality implant services available.
Benefits of Having Dental Implants
Having missing teeth can lower your self-esteem for aesthetic reasons, but it can also be physically uncomfortable. Chewing without a full set of teeth can be painful and cause imbalances. Although implants are a more expensive solution for missing teeth, there are many benefits involves.
A few of the benefits of implants include:
- They can last for up to 10-20 years if they are kept in good condition
- They tend to be stronger than natural teeth
- They do not need neighboring teeth to support them
