Smiles are essential. It may be the first thing that someone you meet notices about you. An imperfect smile can affect you in many ways. Gaps due to tooth loss can cause you to be insecure about your smile. If you have been looking for a way to improve your smile in Sugar Land, dental implants from Dr. Siny Thomas may be the right choice for you.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a post made of titanium that is surgically placed into your jawbone to create a base for a new tooth. It acts as an anchor for the replacement tooth. It looks and feels just like a natural tooth.
Missing teeth often affect more than just a smile. Our patients 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.
The Insertion Process
During your initial appointment, Dr. Siny will examine your mouth to determine if you are a candidate for implants. Dental implants are inserted over the process of two surgeries. At the first surgery, the implant is inserted into the jawbone. The bonding stage begins, during which the implant fuses with your jawbone. It can take up to six months to fully bond.
Depending on whether Dr. Thomas is replacing one tooth or all your teeth, you may receive a temporary crown or temporary dentures to wear. After the healing period, Dr. Thomas will attach a dental crown or dentures. Depending on your surgery, you can receive local or general anesthesia to lessen the discomfort
