Tooth loss can be devastating. When you lose a tooth, it can change the way you eat, the way you speak, and even the way you feel about yourself. When you picture tooth replacement, you may think of partial or removable full dentures with ineffective adhesives but there are many other options available to you. For the most natural and unique replication of your teeth, Dr. J. Darrell Steele in Coppell, TX performs cosmetic teeth surgery by placing dental implants.
Natural Look and Feel with Dental Implants
Implants duplicate the structure of your tooth and its root using a dental crown and a titanium post and crown. An implant is permanently anchored, as the titanium post fuses with your jaw bone after cosmetic teeth surgery. This creates a stable foundation for your smile, allowing you to eat your favorite foods without the unpleasant diet restrictions associated with removable replacement methods. They also look and feel similar to your natural teeth, requiring no additional maintenance beyond a daily oral hygiene regimen of brushing, flossing and regularly cleanings.
Imagine a life where you can bite into an apple without worrying if your dentures will slide. Imagine a life where you smile wide for your family photos with confidence. Imagine not having to incorporate denture care into your daily routine, which interrupts your life. With dental implants, these scenarios can be your reality. Dr. Steele can bring you smile been to its original function and beauty.
Preserve Bone Health with Cosmetic Teeth Surgery
Implants have been performed for over forty years and have been proven safe and effective, with greater long term advantages than removable prosthetics. Implants preserve jaw bone health by simulating the relationship between the bone and tooth root. From the moment the original tooth is lost the jaw bone begins to deteriorate from the lack of pressure that was provided by the tooth. In this case bone loss is progressive and could eventually degrade to the point where there is an alteration in the facial structure, typically manifesting in sunken cheeks and a receding chin. Unfortunately for patients who choose traditional removable dentures, this process can still occur. There is, however, an option that would afford you the opportunity to incorporate your dentures with implants. Dr. Steele offers implant supported dentures for patients who are happy with their prosthetic but wish to protect their bone health.
