Dental implants are the most popular tooth replacement treatment option for our patients in Midland, and it’s easy to see why. They have a multitude of benefits that other options don’t.
Tooth loss is very common and can happen for a variety of reasons including physical injuries, poor oral health, and genetics. We use our comfortable and effective dental implant solutions to replace any number of missing or damaged teeth.
They look and function much like natural teeth and are crafted to seamlessly blend into your smile. Only you and our team will notice that you have dental implants.
Patients with multiple missing teeth in a row will generally receive an implant-supported dental bridge. Traditional tooth loss solutions require neighboring teeth to be filed down to support the dental bridge.
Implant-supported bridges don’t depend on neighboring teeth and instead support them, preventing them from shifting over time. Dental implants are the reliable and durable tooth loss treatment you can count on.
For patients who come to us with entire rows of missing teeth, we can use our full arch replacements to restore their smile. Unlike traditional dentures that require adhesives to stay in place, implant-supported dentures use no adhesives since they are firmly anchored to the jaw.
Enjoy a healthy and attractive smile that is engineered to last. With implant-supported dentures, you will eat, speak, smile, and laugh without a second thought about your teeth. Enjoy the full benefits of dental implants with the convenience of traditional dentures.
Modern dentists generally use two types of dental implants:
Endosteal: Endosteal implants go directly into the patient’s jawbone. The titanium posts fuse with the jaw, and when the bone tissue heals around the post, the implant becomes a permanent part of the mouth.
Subperiosteal: Subperiosteal implants use one metal frame rather than individual posts. The frame is attached to the jawbone, and then the gums heal around the frame. After healing, permanent tooth fixtures will go into the frame.
Dental implants are growing in popularity every year. Both dentists and patients recognize that they offer numerous health benefits that other treatments simply do not. Don’t wait any longer to treat your missing teeth. Call Permian Basin Dental Center to schedule a no-obligation consultation today.
