Dental Implants in Spring, TX

What Is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are made of titanium and are implanted into the mouth to function as an artificial tooth root. To these implants, a variety of restorations like CEREC crowns and even bridges and dentures can be attached, replacing one or more missing teeth.

If you are looking for a long-lasting way to replace missing teeth and prevent bone loss, implants from Consultants in Dental Aesthetics may be right for you. Contact us today for an appointment.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants look and feel completely natural, and will never shift or move when you speak, eat, or chew. In addition, they require very little special care once placed, and your implants will likely last you for the rest of your life.

Additionally, they also stimulate the underlying jaw bone, unlike other restorations like bridges and dentures. This keeps the jaw bone healthy and prevents bone resorption, a common condition that causes the jaw bone beneath a missing tooth to weaken over time. 

Dental Implant Aftercare & Maintenance

It’s very simple to care for dental implants. All you need to do is treat them like natural teeth. Make sure you brush twice a day for two minutes and floss at least once per day, and do your best to maintain a tooth-healthy diet. 

You should also come see us every six months for a teeth cleaning and oral exam so that we can ensure your natural teeth are in great shape and that your dental implant is still healthy and strong.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Dental Implant?

If you have lost one or more teeth but your mouth is healthy and your jaw bone is strong enough to support an implant, you are probably a good candidate for a dental implant. To learn more and discuss the specifics of your treatment and other options for restoring missing teeth, just contact Consultants in Dental Aesthetics for an implant consultation.
