If you are missing one or more teeth, you are certainly not alone. Tooth loss is more common problem than most Americans know, affecting millions of men and women between the ages of 20 and 64 alone. Fortunately, today’s advanced dental technology makes it possible to restore damaged and incomplete smiles with a restorative procedure that closely mimics natural teeth: dental implants. At the Dallas, TX office of Joseph R. Loftus, DDS, Dr. Loftus and his team offer dental implant restorations that look, feel, and function just like your natural dentition.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Whereas traditional dental prosthetics – including dentures, bridges, and partials – simply replace the part of your tooth that shows above the gum line, dental implants actually serve as replacements for the roots of your teeth. This is particularly important for both stability and the health of your jaw bone. Without a root to stimulate it, the bone tissue of the jaw deteriorates over time; this can lead to a variety of problems, including additional tooth loss.
When a dental implant is placed, the biocompatible titanium post serves as a new root to which a custom-crafted, aesthetically pleasing crown is affixed. Dental implants can also be used to secure dentures, eliminating the need for messy adhesives. The end result is a newly revitalized smile and a natural bite, allowing you to eat your favorite foods freely and speak with comfort and confidence.
