Do you have missing teeth and are uncomfortable being around anyone but your closest friends or family? Do you find yourself avoiding activities that may require you to be around strangers? Are some of your teeth worn down because you are using them to compensate for missing teeth in your smile? Does your face look haggard or older because you have missing teeth and your cheeks are sunken in?
Having a beautiful smile is essential in today’s world and it is difficult to feel confident if your smile isn’t what you want it to be. That’s why Garland dentist Dr. Tran at Hue Dental is happy to offer dental implants to his Garland neighbors.
What are the advantages of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the best way to replace a missing tooth.
Dental implants can look extremely natural, mimicking the look of the surrounding, natural teeth in your mouth. We color-match them so they look completely natural in your smile.
Dental implants feel like natural teeth and can give your mouth that full, complete feeling.
Unlike a dental bridge, which reduces the enamel of the adjacent teeth and uses them to connect the three teeth together, an implant is a stand-alone tooth that is easier to clean, permanent, and preserves the bony ridge of a patient’s mouth.
Types of Implant Supported Restorations
Dental implants are easily the most versatile tooth replacement solution. We’re able to use one or more dental implant posts to restore lost root structure and provide optimal stability for even the most advanced dental restorations. Dental implant-retained tooth replacements may include:
Dental crowns – single missing teeth are replaced by attaching a custom dental crown to an implant post
Bridges – for two to four teeth in a row, we can craft a set of connected dental crowns known as bridges that can be supported by one or two implants depending on the number of teeth to be replaced
Partials & dentures – partial and full dentures restore smiles following extensive tooth loss, and are anchored to the minimal number of implant posts to provide maximum support
All-on-4 & teeth-in-a-day – as the names imply, All-on-4 dentures are full dentures supported by just four implants positioned to provide optimal stability, and teeth-in-a-day cases allow for the same day placement of a temporary denture
