What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a state-of-the-art tooth replacement technology that look and function most like your natural teeth. Because your dental implant is rooted in your bone, cleaning and caring for your dental implant is much like cleaning and caring for your natural teeth. You can brush and floss your dental implant normally, making dental hygiene a breeze.
The three-part system is made up of a titanium "root" that is placed by a trusted oral surgeon, a crown that looks like a real tooth, and an abutment that attaches the crown to the implant. When your implant placement is complete, no one may ever notice that it is not your natural tooth.
Dental implants offer the flexibility and freedom our patients appreciate. Unlike bridges, your dental implant is a stable and functional part of your natural bite. Dr. Reagan Grizzle will make sure your restored crown fits perfectly with your adjacent and opposing teeth. This will give you maximum comfort and function so that you can eat the foods that you like.
To find out if dental implants are a good option for replacing your missing teeth, call our Sugar Land dental office. We can schedule an evaluation for you so that Dr. Grizzle can explain your tooth replacement options.
