It’s always important to replace missing teeth. Just a single missing tooth can impact how you chew your food or even how you speak! Fortunately, modern dental technology offers a variety of options to replace missing teeth. One of those that has become increasingly popular over the past few years is the dental implant. An implant consists of an artificial tooth “root” (usually made of titanium) that is implanted into the patient’s jaw, and a porcelain crown that is affixed to the top of the root. Dr. Brawner and his staff are pleased to offer dental implants as one of the many services he provides to his patients from throughout the Austin, TX, area.
Why You Should Choose Arbor Oaks Dental for Dental Implants
Dental implants have become more and more popular over the past few years with good reason – getting a dental implant is very much like getting a brand new natural tooth! Implants don’t slip or move the way some other dental appliances do, which means you’re not restricted with regard to the kind of food you eat, and you never have to worry about your teeth slipping or clicking while you speak. And there is no special care or cleaning required for an implant – you simply brush and floss the way you normally would. Dr. Brawner and his staff have fitted many patients with implants in the past, which means that they have the experience required to successfully perform this popular dental procedure!
The Dental Implant Procedure
The first step in getting a dental implant involves implanting the “root” into the patient’s jaw, then waiting several months to allow the implant to fuse to the jawbone. After that, Dr. Brawner will attach a connector to the top of the implant, then permanently affix the porcelain crown to the connector. Dental implants are extremely durable and can, in many cases, last throughout the lifetime of the patient.
Dental implants are one of several procedures that can be involved in a full mouth reconstruction. Whether a patient is simply not happy with his or her existing natural teeth, or the patient has undergone some type of accident or illness that has created numerous dental problems, full mouth reconstruction can resolve those issues and provide the patient with an improved quality of life.
