Are you looking for a long-term solution for replacing your missing permanent teeth?dental implants

While tooth loss can be embarrassing and frustrating, you’ll be happy to hear that our Temple, TX, dentist Dr. Derek Winegar offers a full range of options to meet everyone’s specific needs. Of course, if you are looking for a restoration that most closely resembles a real tooth, then it’s time to consider dental implants.

Dental implant can be the most reliable and long-term solution for replacing your missing teeth. It’s important to understand as much as you can about this treatment before you decide whether it’s the right option for you. Here are some things you should know about getting dental implants in Temple, TX:

Since the implant replaces missing tooth roots, it’s only natural that it will need to be placed into the jawbone. After all, the bone and tissue surrounding the implant will heal around the implant, making it a permanent structure within your mouth.

It will take time to get your new tooth: Patience is key when it comes to getting dental implants. It can take several months, depending on certain factors, for the implant to bond with your jawbone. Of course, many patients find it to be a small price to pay for having a restoration that can last a lifetime with proper care.

The restoration functions like real teeth: If you want a tooth replacement that is as close as you can get to a natural tooth, a dental implant is it. You won’t find another restoration that naturally fuses together with your mouth and you won’t find one as durable or reliable.
