If you have missing teeth, you have most likely seen their effects. Chewing and eating become more difficult and inefficient and, dependingdental  implants on where the gaps are in the mouth, even something as simple as saying hello can be frustrating. However, you can replace your missing teeth with dental implants, a modern and effective approach to filling in your gaps. Find out more about the benefits of dental implants with Dr. Phu Lee at Advanced Family Dental with locations in Bedford and Keller, TX.

The Benefits of Dental Implants at Bedford and Keller

  • Permanent: Your dentist places the implant’s fixture into your jaw’s bone. The bone then grows around the fixture to hold it permanently in place. This process, known as osseointegration, replaces your missing tooth’s root, a task not accomplished by other tooth replacement options like dental bridges.
  • Effective: Once your dentist places an implant, it replaces both the root and the missing tooth itself. This keeps the bone in which it lies stimulated to reduce the chance of bone atrophy and also restores the biting surface of the missing tooth, making chewing and eating easier and realigning the bite itself, reducing the risk of jaw-related conditions like TMJ disorder.
  • Natural Looking: A dental laboratory creates each implant’s prosthetic from an impression of your mouth, customizing the prosthetic tooth to fit seamlessly into your smile. The porcelain from which the prosthetic is made has the same light-reflecting qualities and color as your natural teeth, further ensuring the implant’s natural look.
  • Long Lasting: Dental implants are made to last thanks to their quality materials and careful execution. With the proper care, your dental implant should last for a lifetime. Additionally, caring for your implants is as easy as caring for your natural teeth. Simply brushing twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and seeing your dentist for regular dental examinations and cleanings twice a year is enough to keep your implants and natural teeth clean and healthy.
