We want to encourage you to schedule your consultation at VL Dental this month, and enjoy all the wonderful benefits of a complete smile in 2016. Keep reading to learn more about what you can expect from dental implants in Richmond TX.
Your smile wants the stability of dental implants
We say it’s the best tooth replacement option for a reason, and it’s because nothing else replaces the missing tooth and its root like dental implants. Other options, like a fixed bridge or a non-implant supported denture, only fix half the problem.
The implants are tiny titanium posts that are implanted directly into the space left by each missing tooth. They slowly fuse with your jawbone over a period of six months — a process known as osseointegration.
There are many benefits of dental implants compared to other options in tooth replacement. Some of them include:
- Increased oral health and a more youthful face shape
- Restored ability to eat and speak without stress or anxiety
- Dental implants can easily last a lifetime
- Implants free denture users from bothersome adhesives
Find out if they’re a good option for your smile
The only way to know if you’re a good candidate for dental implants is to schedule your dental implant consultation with VL Dental in Richmond. Dr. Vong uses this initial appointment to determine whether or not they’re the best option for you and your smile based on a couple of qualifications.
First, you need plenty of supporting jawbone structure. That means your mouth needs to be healthy and whole. If your tooth loss is a relatively new occurrence, chances are good that your jawbone is in good shape — and even if it’s not, we can still explore other options to make dental implants a possibility for you, like bone grafting.
Patients must be in good oral and overall health. Additionally, Dr. Vong will examine your mouth and discuss your health history to determine your candidacy for the treatment. If you’ve got serious gum disease or a condition that affects the immune system, like diabetes or HIV, dental implants are probably not the right option for you.
