Smiles are very important. It may be the first thing a new person notices about you. You can imagine how an imperfect smile can affect a person. Gaps due to tooth loss can cause a person to be insecure about their smile. If you have been looking for a way to improve your smile in Sugar Land, dental implants may be the right choice for you. Our dentists at Cornerstone Dentistry would love to meet with you today!
Dental implants are posts made of titanium that are then surgically bound into the patient’s jawbone to create the base for a new tooth. These posts act as an anchor for the implants. These implants look and feel just like a natural tooth. Missing teeth often affects more than just a smile. Patients from our Sugar Land office have mentioned that their implants have improved the way they eat and chew. Although people may say that dentures are good enough, dental implants are a more permanent solution for patients with missing teeth.
During your initial appointment, our dentists will do an examination of your mouth in order to determine if you are a good candidate for implants. Dental implants are inserted over the process of two surgeries. At the first surgery, the implant is inserted into the jawbone. This begins the bonding stage which can last up to six months to fully bond. In the meantime, you may be provided with temporary dentures to wear. Once the bonding has finished, our dentists at Cornerstone Dentistry will insert the tooth. Often times local anesthesia or general anesthesia will be used to lessen the discomfort felt by patients.
Cornerstone Dentistry is ready to help if you think that dental implants will help you improve your smile. We care about the experience of each and every one of our clients. Feel free to come to our Sugar Land office or call to schedule an appointment. The sooner you have your consultation, the closer you are to the smile of your dreams!
