Live Better With Dental Implants

Houston Implant Dentistry

For denture wearers, ill-fitting dentures can cause more issues  than they solve. If you live with loose dentures, you may consider them a necessary evil. At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, we’d like to tell you about an alternative: implant-supported dentures.

Implant-supported dentures are like getting a brand-new set of teeth. If you are not familiar with implants, here are the essentials:

Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed in your jaw, where they fuse with the bone. Titanium is ideally suited to this, which is why it is commonly used in joint replacements, like for the hip and the knee.

Once the titanium has fused with the bone, you have a rock-solid support for one or more artificial teeth that look and function like the real thing.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Where one implant can support one artificial tooth, several implants – usually four – can support a full dental arch.

Implant-supported dentures are a permanent solution for missing teeth. They look completely natural, and can replace both the upper and lower sets.

To be a good candidate for a dental implant, you must have enough healthy bone to support it. Even if you don’t, bone grafting can promote new growth, enough so that there is enough mass to support the implant.

To find out more about implant-supported dentures from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, please call us. Patients from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein come to us for implants and complete general dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!
