More about Tooth Loss
Tooth loss can come from a variety of sources, including trauma from accidents and sports, as well as poor oral hygiene. Unfortunately, if you struggling with tooth loss and don't treat the issue immediately, it may cause other serious problems to arise, including decreased bone density and jawbone recession. As a result, a person may end up looking older and have difficulty eating and speaking. If you don't replace missing teeth, you may notice the gaps between teeth widening. This is because the tooth opposite the missing tooth is looking for a point of contact.
Tooth Loss Fixes
Your Crystal dentist offers several options, like bridges and crowns, but the best is likely a dental implant. They have a 95% success rate and reinforce the jawbone. Dental implants are great in that they fill gaps while also looking natural. No one will know it's a prosthetic tooth. Dental implants replace one or more missing teeth, and restore functionality, like eating, biting into your favorite foods, and speaking.
The procedure is simple too. Dr. Murphy removes any remaining tooth, uses a local anesthesia to numb the surgical area, inserts a titanium implant, and seals the area for about 3-to-6 months. When you come back, she opens the surgical area to place a connecter that fixes the crown in place.
