If you live in the Laredo, Texas area, it is nice to know that the three-dentist team at Davenport Dental Group has all the skills and know-how necessary to keep up with your ever-evolving needs, including restorative dentistry.
You see, following tooth loss as an adult, you will be missing teeth, which will be bad enough. But you will also be missing out on so many other things like health and wellness, a familiar face in the mirror, the foods you love to eat, and all the opportunities to laugh or smile that you used to look forward to. The good news is that our doctors know just how to get your life back on track: dental implants.
Keep reading to hear more about what dental implants involve, and then be sure to get in touch with our team to arrange for your restorative dentistry consultation at the Davenport Dental Group!
Dental Implants Are Your Best Bet
Dental implants are modern artificial replacements for your natural tooth roots. The implants we use are made of titanium and they look a lot like a little screw. Implants are hollow, and the center of them is threaded as well. This allows us to attach any number of different caps, abutments, and appliances.
Here’s how we transform your situation: when you stop by for the first part of the procedure, the dental implants will be screwed into your jaw through a minor surgical procedure that happens right here in our office. Once in place, they are allowed to heal and fuse with the bone over the course of several months.
Following the healing period, you will simply return to our Laredo, TX dentist’s office to have your new crown, denture or permanent teeth affixed to the implant. It’s as easy as that!
Implant Varieties In Laredo, TX
Single Dental Implant: This is the method that we employ when you need just one tooth replaced. A single dental implant is topped with a single crown to replace a tooth that has been knocked out, has fallen out, or has been extracted.
Implant-Supported Bridge: If you are missing a few teeth in a row, this might be your best option. Our implant-supported bridge consists of three or more teeth set into a base of some sort and attached to your jaw using dental implants. This treatment can vary depending on how many teeth you need to replace, up to an entire arch.
Implant-Supported Dentures: If you are currently dealing with a removable denture, but you are upset with its slippery nature, we can provide some peace of mind. Our team can readily secure your dentures using dental implants. Our implant-supported dentures are far more stable and reliable than removable dentures alone.
