If you are missing teeth, it is essential you replace the teeth to protect your quality of life and oral health. Untreated tooth loss leads to loss of confidence. With each tooth playing an important role in healthy oral functions, even one missing tooth negatively impacts your oral health. Plus, simple tasks like eating and speaking become more challenging. Often, people turn to dental bridges or dentures to replace missing teeth. While these options are effective, they do not offer the same benefits as those of implant retained prosthetics. At Waco Surgical Arts, we offer dental implants in Waco to treat all cases of tooth loss.
WHAT ARE IMPLANT RETAINED PROSTHETICS?
Implant retained prosthetics are the most preferred option to replace missing teeth. Using dental implants, the prosthetics are securely held in place to provide a lifelong solution to treat tooth loss. Dental implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone by your oral surgeon in Waco. By doing so, the jawbone naturally fuses to the implant posts to give a secure foundation for the replacement teeth. Then, the replacement teeth are attached to the dental implants to complete your smile.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF IMPLANT RETAINED PROSTHETICS?
When compared to traditional forms of tooth replacement, the benefits of implant retained dentures are simply unmatched. With the implants in place, you gain a permanent solution to replace your teeth. Due to the materials used and the unique methods to place the implants, you benefit from over a 95% success rate.
By using dental implants, your prosthetics will be securely held in place, so you never have to worry about messy adhesives or cleaning solutions. With the jawbone creating a foundation for the replacement teeth, you gain an improved biting force of over 70% when compared to traditional dentures.
Best of all, you will restore your oral health and prevent bone loss. When a tooth is lost, the underlying bone is no longer stimulated. This causes bone density to decrease. Over time, you will begin to lose support needed to maintain your facial structures and any remaining natural teeth. However, with dental implants, your bone is stimulated to stop bone loss. This protects your facial structures and restores your oral health.
HOW CAN I GET DENTAL IMPLANTS?
To replace your missing teeth, you will need a consultation with your dentist in Waco to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. In most cases, as long as you have healthy gums and adequate bone density, you can benefit from implant retained prosthetics.
After evaluating your tooth loss, oral health, and medical history, we will create a comprehensive treatment plan to restore your smile. Dr. Jason Beck will help you on your journey to a new smile by attaching abutments and performing the restoration process.
