At Granbury Dental Center, we understand the importance of a full set of healthy teeth. When teeth go missing, it can be hard to eat, speak, smile, and feel confident in your day to day life. If you’re suffering from missing teeth or ill-fitting removable dental appliances like bridges or dentures, we want you to know there is a better way to live with dental implants. Your Granbury implant dentists have the advanced training and technology to place implants with high precision and great results – from the comfort of your dental home.
Dental implants are the #1 recommended tooth replacement solution, by both doctors and patients alike. That’s because implants are the only way to replace the root of the tooth, which is an essential part of a healthy mouth and jawbone.
Where traditional restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures sit on top of the gums and only replace the crown or the visible portion of the tooth, implants go deeper to replace the tooth root. Without the tooth root or a dental implant, the jawbone will begin to deteriorate, causing bone loss and a sunken facial appearance. Implants fuse with the jawbone, stimulating new bone and tissue growth for a healthier mouth and facial structure.
Dental implants are typically made of biocompatible titanium that encourages attachment to the jawbone, so it will function just the same as your natural tooth. Dental implants are strong and durable to securely anchor natural looking restorations that look, feel and function just like natural teeth. In the skilled hands of our doctors at Granbury Dental Center, dental implants can be a permanent solution to missing teeth that will last a lifetime with proper care.
If you’ve suffered the loss of your natural teeth or you’re living with traditional dentures that don’t fit or function well, we would love to help you secure your smile with implant supported dentures. We use the minimum number of implants depending on your individual needs and budget to support a full arch of teeth.
Depending on your individual needs and preferences, implant supported dentures can either be permanently secured or have the ability to snap in and out. Even with the removable option, you don’t necessarily have to take them out for cleaning. Implant supported dentures are designed to function just like natural teeth so you can clean and maintain them with regular brushing and flossing, and you don’t ever have to deal with messy denture adhesives again.
Implant supported dentures allow you to enjoy your favorite foods, to speak naturally, and to smile with confidence. We know how hard it can be living with missing teeth and removable options, and we would love to help improve your oral health and quality of life with dental implants.
Implants do require a certain level of jawbone health and density to ensure their success. If you’ve suffered from missing teeth for a while, you may not have sufficient bone health. However, we may be able to perform a bone graft to supplement the jawbone and place implants.
If you’re wondering if you’re a candidate for implants, we would love to sit down with you in a comprehensive consultation to discuss your options. If you’re worried about the cost of implants, we have flexible financing options available to help you get the dental solutions you deserve without breaking the bank.
