Dental Implants in Princeton TX
At Hello Dental, we understand the challenges our patients face when they live with a compromised tooth.
You might not be able to eat the foods you used to enjoy because chewing is more difficult. You might also feel self conscious about talking and smiling because of your missing tooth, and this can take a toll on your confidence.
Whether your tooth is failing or already missing, we have solutions for you!
Why Is Replacing a Tooth Important?
Dental implants offer patients the best solution for replacing missing teeth because they restore both your root and your tooth.
Without a root to support, your bone begins to resorb, or deteriorate, which eliminates support for your healthy teeth and could lead to more tooth loss. If you don’t replace your tooth, your remaining teeth will shift into the open space, causing problems such as bite misalignment and an increased risk for fractures, chipping, and other damage to your teeth.
How Can Dental Implants Help?
A dental implant utilizes a titanium post that our doctors will surgically place into your jawbone. Titanium is a biocompatible material that integrates well with your body over a healing period of 4 to 6 months. This creates a stable foundation for your new tooth – often a porcelain crown. The implant also keeps your bone healthy and stimulated just like your root would.
Dr. Cho and Dr. Kang will customize a restoration that will match your existing teeth and complement your smile. Your new tooth will also give you the same function your natural tooth did, so you’ll be eating, talking, and smiling again with ease and confidence. You can care for your implant by brushing and flossing the way you did with your natural tooth, making home hygiene simple and familiar.
Implants are capable of supporting dental prosthetics such as a dental bridge to restore multiple missing teeth. Strategically placed implants can securely hold a denture in place, replacing an entire arch of teeth. Implants provide a better fit that ensures no movement or slippage when you’re talking or eating.
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
While implants work well for most patients, they do need enough healthy bone structure for proper support, and the patient should be in good overall health to ensure the implant’s success. Dr. Cho and Dr. Kang can determine if implants are right for you with x-rays and an examination. If you’re lacking the bone structure needed to support a dental implant, we can perform a bone grafting procedure that will rebuild your bone.
