Why is important to replace missing teeth?

Many patients express self-consciousness about their missing teeth and hide their teeth when they talk or smile. But besides appearance and added confidence, there are health benefits to replacing your missing teeth with dental implants in McKinney.

When your mouth has teeth missing, things can begin to go awry.

  • The jawbone that once held your tooth’s root loses support, causing the bone to deteriorate.
  • Bone deterioration can impact your overall facial structure. Your facial features may look pinched, or sunken.
  • The remaining teeth often begin to drift, creating bite changes because the teeth don’t come together the way they used to.
  • Bite changes, impact the way you chew which can lead to discomfort when eating, digestive problems, and diet changes, which affect the entire body.

Dental implants protect oral and overall health.

A dental implant simulates a tooth’s natural root. The dental implant, placed in the jawbone, supports the bone and adjacent teeth, just like a healthy tooth does. The implant, essentially firmly fills the space, keeping surrounding teeth where they belong.

Because they are meant to act as a natural tooth, you chew and eat with them just like a regular tooth, and keep them healthy with routine brushing and flossing.

The dental implant itself is a post, fabricated mostly of titanium or zirconia, which are some of the most durable materials available compatible with the human body.

The dental implant is surgically bonded into the upper or lower jawbone to act just like your natural tooth root. Over time the jawbone naturally fuses with the post, anchoring it into place. This sturdy structure is the framework for replacement teeth.

Once the implant has securely bonded to your jaw, a restoration (crown, bridge, or denture) can be placed over the implant to look, function and feel like a natural tooth.


Permanent Solution for Missing Teeth, Enhancing both Function and Appearance

Dental implants provide a permanent solution for missing teeth, offering long-term stability, unlike dentures or bridges. Made from biocompatible materials like titanium, implants fuse with the jawbone, creating a strong foundation for replacement teeth. Additionally, implants enhance both function and appearance by closely mimicking natural teeth, as they are designed to match the color and shape of existing teeth.

Integrate with the Jawbone, Promoting Bone Health and Preventing Deterioration

Dental implants fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This fusion stimulates the bone, preventing the bone loss that typically occurs after tooth loss. By maintaining the bone’s density and volume, implants help preserve the natural contours of the face, promoting long-term oral health and preventing the sunken appearance associated with missing teeth.

Make Eating Easy, Maintain Facial Structure, and Prevent Neighboring Teeth from Shifting

Dental implants restore natural biting and chewing capabilities, allowing patients to eat without restrictions. They also play a critical role in maintaining facial structure by supporting the jawbone and surrounding tissues. Additionally, implants prevent neighboring teeth from shifting into the gap left by a missing tooth, ensuring proper alignment and overall dental health.

Excellent Alternative to Other Tooth Replacement Options

Dental implants are a durable, natural-looking, and functional alternative to traditional tooth replacement options like dentures or bridges. Their strength and stability allow them to withstand daily wear and tear, providing a long-lasting solution. With their lifelike appearance and secure fit, implants help patients regain confidence in their smile and overall oral function.
