Dental implants have several advantages over dentures, including the fact that they can be used as the foundation for a more advanced type of dentures; one that does not require messy adhesive, and that will stay dependably in place when you chew and speak. At Dentistry on Kirby, we are pleased to offer you the state-of-the-art when it comes to teeth replacements.
Traditional dentures are removable. They are used to replace several teeth or even all of them. For a long time, they were the best option available for filling the empty space where teeth used to be. And while they are still popular today, there is a better and more appealing possibility. Our Houston implant dentist can replace one, a few, or all of your lost teeth with implant technology. Traditional dentures are placed on the surface of your gums. They are cosmetically pleasing and they make it easier for you to chew, but the are not like real teeth. That’s where dental implants have the edge. They were designed to be like natural teeth in every way possible. For one, they consist of both a root and a tooth, rather than just laying on top of the gums. There are two essential components to every implant. First is the titanium post that is placed in your jaw by our Houston implant dentist, and which your bone tissue grows around and fuses with. For single teeth, the second part is the tooth-colored crown that is cemented to the post and is fixed. For multiple teeth, a denture is snapped on top of the posts and like traditional dentures, is removable.
