Dental Implants

Have you been hiding your smile for years? If you’re tired of the way your teeth look, then you should visit Anne Chee, DDS in Houston, TX to get more information about how to restore your smile. One way we offer is the implantation of dental implants.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a way to replace teeth that have been knocked out, lost, or extracted from the mouth. They are meant to permanently replace these teeth, allowing patients to resume their daily life and eat the foods they love without having to worry about removing devices or dentures. The tooth will need to be cared for as if it is a normal tooth, so it can be brushed and flossed as normal. Implants are a great way for patients to regain control of their teeth and improve their appearance as well as their bite.

Dental Implantation

Dental implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone during what is known as dental implantation. A titanium post will be used, stimulating the jaws and acting as the new root of your replacement tooth. Once the post has healed and sits securely in the gums, your dentist will attach an abutment and a crown onto the post. The abutment keeps the crown securely in place, so you won’t have to worry about it slipping out of place or coming loose while you eat, drink, play sports, or sleep.

The dental implant looks just like the natural teeth in your mouth, so nobody will be able to tell the difference. You may feel a bit weird after the tooth has been installed, but this will go away over time. As long as you take proper care of your tooth, it should last for several decades. You can get more information about how to care for your implant from Dr. Chee in Houston.
