What is a dental implant?
If you have lost one or multiple teeth to decay, trauma, periodontal disease, or other factors, your dentists may recommend dental implants as a restorative option. A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that can be used to replace a single tooth, all of the teeth, or anything in between. The dental implant is a small post or screw that is surgically placed in the jawbone. Because the implant is made of titanium, it is biocompatible and allows the bone to bond with the implant for a strong, stable restoration. After a period of healing, a dental implant restoration is attached to the implant post to completely restore your smile. Based on your individual dental needs, the implant restoration could be a dental bridge, crown, complete (full) denture, or partial denture. When cared for properly, your dental implant in Whitesboro, Texas, can last a lifetime.
Do I need a dental implant?
Drs. Campbell and Campbell will help you determine whether a dental implant is the best available choice for replacing your missing teeth and restoring your smile. Dental implants are a great choice because they are stable, lasting, and do not require any adjustments to the neighboring teeth as traditional bridges do.
