People who have lost one or more of their natural teeth may think they will never again be able to eat normally, let alone smile without wanting to cover gaps in their teeth. There is good news: dental implants like those available from Vaca and Kirby in Longview TX can restore your eating ability, and your smile, too!
Dental implants are one of the most important developments in the history of dentistry. They are metal posts that we insert into the jaw. The posts are most often made of titanium, which has a remarkable ability to fuse with the bone. Once they do they become a part of your body, and act as a replacement for the missing tooth root.
The implant provides a solid foundation for supporting one or more artificial teeth. One implant can support one tooth. Several implants can support a dental bridge, and even a full dental arch.
Implant-supported teeth look and function like natural teeth. While each case is unique, most patients have virtually normal biting and chewing ability. And that makes them want to smile!
