You’ve worked all your life and now you’ve made it to your golden years. Thus, you’ve earned the right to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Unfortunately, there is a present hindrance to your ability to enjoy life – your missing teeth. It’s so ironic that now that you have more time to “smell the roses,” you have this roadblock that hinders the natural function of your teeth, which includes your ability to eat the foods you love, speak clearly and feel confident in your appearance. But don’t despair because your dentist can rectify the problem with dental implants in Carrollton. Read on to learn how this procedure works.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the gold standard of tooth restoration. Made from durable titanium, these posts are surgically inserted into your jawbone and replace your missing roots. In doing so, it provides a sturdy foundation for your dentist to then place:
- A crown (for a single tooth)
- A bridge (for more than one tooth missing consecutively)
- Implant-supported dentures for an entire missing row or set of teeth
The above fixtures fit on top of your implant(s) using an abutment (an anchor) or snaps to attach them. By first having the implant placed before receiving either of the fixtures, you can be sure that you’ll enjoy a natural feeling application that you can be confident will last.
The Connection Between Implants and Osteoporosis
New findings have been released showing how beneficial dental implants in Carrollton are for post-menopausal women who are more susceptible to osteoporosis (the weakening of the bones by holes that develop in them). If you suffer from this condition, you are more prone for tooth loss.
Thus, when you lose any of your teeth and have the dental implant procedure done, you’ll be able to prevent any further bone degeneration and will enjoy a comfortable application that will allow you to regain the way of life you once had.
Time is of the Essence
If you are suffering from tooth loss, time is of the essence because the longer you go without your tooth, the more jawbone loss you’ll endure, which could hinder your chances of having the dental implant procedure done.
So don’t hesitate to reach out to your implant dentist in Carrollton to schedule a consultation today. Soon, you’ll be able to smile with confidence, eat your favorite foods, speak clearly and enjoy life to the fullest!
