If uncomfortable removable dentures or partial dentures are interfering with your day-to-day activities, dental implants could give you a new lease on life with a beautiful new smile! Patients and dentists alike prefer replacing teeth with implants because they feel comfortable, look great, and function like natural teeth.
Round Rock dentist Dr. Louk is trained in the placement and restoration phases of implant dentistry, so you won’t have to visit another office for any part of the implant procedure. We take care of all your implant needs right here in our Round Rock office.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants look and feel natural, and functional naturally too, so you can talk, eat, and smile with confidence again. They fuse with your bone tissue to create solid, secure anchors for restorations such as bridges, crowns, and overdentures.
- Dental implants look, feel, and functional naturally, so you can talk, eat, and smile with confidence again.
- Missing teeth can change the shape of your jaw and face; implants provide structure and support, preserving your face and jaw shape.
- Implants can help prevent the bone loss that naturally occurs when you lose one or more teeth.
After your implant is placed, Dr. Louk will discuss your restoration options with you thoroughly and help you can make an informed decision about your dental health.
Depending on the number of teeth you are missing, you have a variety of options for the restoration that will go on your implant. Dr. Louk will provide you with information on all options available to you and help you determine the treatment that is right for you.
If you’re missing a single tooth, a crown is the most common restoration for your implant. A crown is a porcelain cap that is placed on top of the implant to replace your missing tooth. The crown is designed to match the color of your other healthy teeth. It feels natural in your mouth and provides you with the full function of your natural teeth.
If you’re missing more than one tooth, bridges and overdentures are common restorations. A bridge connects to a crown that is placed on either side of the gap, and has false teeth in place of your missing teeth. Overdentures are full or partial dentures that secure to implants to provide you with a full set of natural-feeling and looking teeth replacements.
