Rebuild a Beautiful Smile with Dental Implants
Your teeth are essential for more than just chewing. They also influence your confidence and quality of life. Even a single missing tooth can change your life but losing several teeth can be devastating. Now, it’s easy to avoid social situations because you’re too embarrassed by your smile. Not to mention, you may struggle with simple tasks, like chewing. Dr. John H. Krell can lift the weight of an incomplete smile off your shoulders. No matter if you need a partial or an implant-retained bridge in Houston, Dr. Krell has the solution for you!
Non-Implant Tooth Replacement Options
Whether you’ve lost teeth gradually from disease or suddenly from an accident, you need to rebuild your smile quickly. Dr. Krell offers many traditional, non-surgical treatments to quickly replace your missing teeth. Depending on your degree of tooth loss, you may need:
Crown & Bridge
1 to 3 consecutive missing teeth is typically replaced using a fixed bridge. Dr. Krell takes an impression of your mouth to replicate the teeth you’ve lost. The bridge is held in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them. This gives you results that last an average of 5 years before needing to be replaced, but you’ll need to permanently change healthy teeth to support the crowns.
If you’ve lost several teeth but still have a few healthy ones left, you may be a candidate for a partial denture. Prosthetic teeth are placed into a gum-colored base that has a metal framework. This allows it to clip or clasp onto your remaining teeth to hold it in place.
An entire arch of missing teeth can be treated with a full denture. An impression of your mouth is used to create an acrylic base which features your new teeth. It’s held to your gum tissue using suction or an adhesive. Although they have a bad reputation for looking and feeling fake, they now look more realistic than ever thanks to the latest innovations in dentistry.
The Dental Implant Process
As an alternative to traditional methods, many patients are now choosing dental implants in Houston. A specific number of implant posts are placed into your jawbone to serve as new tooth roots. This stimulates your jaw to encourage new bone growth. Over several weeks, your jaw will fuse to the posts to provide a stable foundation for your bridge or denture.
After your jawbone has healed, special fixtures are placed onto the posts to secure your custom-made restoration. It will look and feel nearly identical to your natural teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are versatile because they can be used to treat all severities of tooth loss. By replacing both the root and the crown, you’ll enjoy a variety of benefits, including:
- Over a 95% success rate.
