IMPLANT DENTISTRY AT WESTCHASE AESTHETIC DENTISTRY
It’s really difficult to smile comfortably when you are missing teeth. The best and most permanent solution for missing teeth are dental implants. They're also closest to the look, feel and function of your own natural teeth. Life is so much easier when you can smile with confidence.
Anatomy of a Dental Implant
Here at Westchase Aesthetic Dentistry, implant dentist Dr. Stapleton creates beautiful, confidence-inspiring implant restorations and even performs some implant placements himself. Dental implants are composed of titanium “roots” that we place in the jawbone. The titanium implant is then covered by an abutment that’s designed as a stable base for the restoration or dental crown. Together, those three parts form the replacement tooth.
The Most Natural-Looking Permanent Replacement
Dental implants are designed to match your other teeth in size, shape, color and positioning. Once placed, they are indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Best of all, they look, feel and function just like your own teeth and they are considered the best and most permanent solution for missing teeth. Most patients who have been treated with dentures, partials and implants report that they much prefer dental implants. We can even use implants to support dentures.
Stopping the Loss of Bone Caused by Missing Teeth
When we lose teeth, the bone that once supported them begins to break down and recede. This process is called resorption. Over time, it can result in a prematurely aged, sunken look to the face. With dental implants, however, the jawbone does not break down and is actually stimulated to anchor the implant in place, just as it would with a real tooth.
