Although tooth loss is permanent, it doesn’t have to be the end of your story. You can replace lost teeth with implants to restore your smile. Dental implant surgery can give you prosthetics that look, function, and feel like natural teeth so you can eat, laugh, talk, and smile with confidence again. You can obtain dental implants from Dr. Stanley Ngo at SK2 Dental in Dallas, Texas.
Implants are unique because they’re the only prosthetics that replace both missing teeth and roots. The “root” of the implant is a titanium screw embedded surgically into your mouth to support your replacement teeth. The other parts of the implant are a connective abutment and your new tooth or teeth, as the case may be.
For single missing teeth, Dr. Stanley Ngo will attach a dental crown to your abutment to serve as your new replacement tooth. For multiple missing teeth in a row, we’ll custom-design a natural-looking bridge for your use. Implant-supported dentures are used to replace all of your teeth, using four, six, or eight implants strategically placed in your jaw to keep your new teeth firmly in place.
The three parts of your implant work as a team to replicate the stability, health, and appearance of natural teeth.
If you’ve lived with tooth loss for a while, getting implants can be a life-changing experience. With implants, you’ll be able to:
All this to say, you can expect life to change for the better with dental implant treatment.
