Overview

Missing teeth can be a big problem that affect a person’s self-confidence, speech, eating habits, and even their overall health. Missing teeth create gaps that allow the remaining teeth to drift out of place, leading to bone loss in the jaw. At Bella Vita Dentistry in Trophy Club, general and cosmetic dentist Dr. Joshua Foreman offers a variety of solutions for missing teeth from full and partial dentures to bridges and implants. For a long-term solution to missing teeth, dental implants offer an amazing solution that will look and function like real teeth. Since they are implanted directly into the jawbone, dental implants can prevent the bone loss that often results from missing teeth. Dental implants can replace a single tooth or an entire smile. 

Treatment

Dental implants work by replacing the tooth root and providing a strong foundation for the new replacement tooth. The implant is a small, titanium post that is placed into the jawbone of the missing tooth. A new tooth can then be securely and permanently placed. This tooth will not only function like the patient’s natural teeth, but it will also feel and look like it as well. Once the implant is placed into the jawbone, it will take 3 – 6 months for the implant and the bone to fully fuse together. This time is necessary for a strong bond to form before the artificial tooth is placed. After it is determined that the bond between the implant and the bone is strong and secure, the dentist will then adhere a small metal post to attach an abutment. After the healing period, usually a few weeks, the replacement tooth will be secured to the abutment.
