If you are missing one or more of your teeth, the team at Steven T. Cutbirth DDS in Waco can help you find the restoration procedure right for you. You could be a candidate for dental implants, or implant-supported dentures.
Dental implants are one of the greatest advances in the field of dentistry. They are an artificial tooth root that is surgically implanted into the jaw of a patient, to replace a missing root.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, or they can be used as anchors for dentures. Conventional dentures may be more affordable, but because they are removable, most patients find that they can be unreliably loose. They can also affect the ability to enjoy food. These are not issues with implant-supported dentures.
The implant itself is typically made of titanium. In time, the titanium fuses with the patient’s jaw. They integrate so well with the bone that the body does not recognize them as a foreign object. Dental implants have a success rate of around ninety-five percent.
Whether replacing one tooth or all of them, dental implants from Steven T. Cutbirth DDS in Waco are an ideal choice. We are a holistic dental practice. Find out more by scheduling a consultation today.
