Dental Implants Mean No More Missing Teeth
If you are tired of dealing with dentures or missing teeth call and schedule an appointment with LifeSmiles by Randy Mitchmore D.D.S.
This amazing dental implant specialist in Houston has the experience and knowledge to help you make the best decision for your missing teeth whether you have a full set of dentures or one missing tooth.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are screws or posts that Houston implant specialist Dr. Randy Mitchmore surgically implants in or on your jaw bone.
Once the surgery has healed, which varies depending on what you are having done your implant specialist will place beautiful artificial teeth on top of the posts. These new teeth look like natural teeth and are just as strong and sturdy.
Because of a process known as osseointegration, the implant post fuses to your bone making it just like a natural tooth root.
Depending on your case you will receive one, multiple or a full set of dental implants. All types of dental implants are much stronger than dental bridges or dentures.
Are Dental Implants a Match for Me?
According to LifeSmiles by Randy Mitchmore D.D.S. most people, even those who have been wearing dentures for decades are excellent candidates for dental implants. However there are those who may not be suitable for this type of tooth replacement.
If you smoke a pipe, cigarettes or cigars it is advised that you give up the habit. Both put you in the dental implant failure category because smoking impedes healing.
People with certain systemic diseases and those who suffer from diabetes may have to go with other types of tooth replacements as well because dental implants aren’t the best choice.
Types of Dental Implants
You can have single, double, or full sets of dental implants. If you have a single missing tooth a dental implant replaces the tooth doing the job that a dental bridge would have done.
Multiple and full sets of dental implants are usually set on a plate replacing partial and full sets of dentures.
That plate of natural teeth is surgically placed in or on your jawbone using 3, 4, 5, or sometimes six dental implant posts. Again, it depends on your customized blueprint.
