Much more than a problem of mere appearances, multiple missing teeth can cause lasting damage to your mouth. When teeth are missing for a long time, the jaw bone tends to deteriorate. Other teeth can slip and slide out of place. Therefore, it is a great idea to fill in your smile as soon as possible.
Although there are many different alternatives for filling in your smile, one of the most successful options is a dental implant. Implants not only fill in your teeth, but also restore your jawbone to its original strength to keep it working properly.
All patients requesting dental implants must have an adequate jaw strength, as dental implants are installed directly into the jawbone. Speak with Dr. Ahmad J Akram to see if your jaw is capable of sustaining dental implants. Over time, the connection between the jawbone and the implant grows stronger, lending strength to both the jaw and the implant.
Dental implants are designed to look and act just like your natural teeth. They can make it easier to eat, chew, and speak. Talk with your dentist to discuss your options and the benefits of dental implants. For more information, call Lonestar Dental Center in Humble, Texas, at 281-233-0333. Dr. Ahmad J Akram and our team look forward to seeing you. We are happy to help restore your smile!
