3 Benefits of Dental Implants

Countless patients across the U.S. receive dental implants each year. Whether you have a missing tooth or several missing teeth, our Longview dental implants offer numerous cosmetic and health benefits that could help make a significant difference in your life, as it has in theirs. During your initial visit, our dentist will discuss the benefits of dental implants and whether they seem appealing to you, some of which include:

  1. Permanence: Dental implant posts are considered a permanent tooth replacement option and can restore oral functionality and appearance for the rest of your life. Although restorations may need to be replaced or repaired, an implant post is made of titanium and other durable materials so that it lasts the test of time.
  2. Comfort: Once your dental implants have been placed and your restoration has been affixed, your new restoration should feel just like your natural teeth. It will also be difficult to notice which of your teeth are artificial, as dental implants blend in seamlessly with your smile.
  3. Adaptability: Dental implant restorations can replace a single tooth or an entire arch of teeth, making them ideal for virtually any situation. They also complement other restorative options like dental crowns.

Placing Your Dental Implants

One of the more challenging components of dental implants is finding a dental office that can handle implant placement. Our Longview implant dentist has the surgical experience and knowledge to handle even complex placement needs. We'll start by performing any necessary pretreatments to prepare your smile for implant posts, like extracting damaged teeth or reinforcing your jawbone with bone grafts. We'll also take detailed CBCT scans for an unparalleled look at your smile and its structures.

Once your smile is ready, our dentist will surgically place your implant posts using computer-guided surgical technology, which helps improve the accuracy of placement and minimize the impact on your surrounding oral structures. Once your posts have been placed, we'll carefully monitor the area to ensure it heals correctly and creates a stable base for the restoration of your choosing.

Catering to Your Restorative Needs

We'll determine which restoration type suits your needs during your initial consultation with our Longview implant dentist. Our dentist will consider various factors, including your number of missing teeth. You can rest assured that your restoration will be crafted using durable and natural-looking materials. Some of the restorations our practice offers include:

  • Implant-Supported Crowns: An implant-supported crown can replace a single missing tooth without damaging any adjacent teeth. Patients enjoy how natural implant-supported crowns feel, and with proper oral care, they can last decades of repeated use.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: Implant-supported bridges are an efficient way to replace multiple missing teeth close together. Anchored on both ends by implant posts, implant-supported bridges provide excellent durability and a natural feel.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: If you're missing an entire arch of teeth, implant-supported dentures can replace all of them. We can use this restorative option to renew the functionality and appearance of just one arch or both as needed.
  • Overdentures: Similar to implant-supported dentures, overdentures consist of artificial teeth on a pink acrylic base. However, they can be removed at night if you're comfortable with traditional dentures' maintenance and care routine.
  • All-on-4®: This restorative treatment is a specific type of implant-supported dentures. The crucial difference is that All-on-4 uses four implant posts to secure a denture in place. In comparison, a traditional implant-supported denture may take six to eight posts.
