Implants are the best way to replace a missing tooth in a way that can fill the hole in your smile and improve your dental health at the same time. Our implants look and feel natural—no one will be able to tell you’ve had a tooth replaced, possibly including you!
We place and restore implants right here in our office, so you’ll be able to have a team you know and trust do all the work for you. We’re excited to share the benefits of implants with you!
The answer here is simple: if you’ve lost a permanent tooth, you could benefit from an implant! In some cases, an implant may not be the first step you take—for example, if your jaw bone has deteriorated under the missing tooth, you may need to have the bone built up again with a bone graft before an implant procedure.
It’s also possible that Dr. Mortensen may recommend extracting one of your natural teeth that has been badly damaged, and then we’ll follow that procedure with an implant restoration. Your dentist will always be on hand to make sure you’re getting the right treatment, but an implant is often a great solution to lost teeth!
It’s easy to feel self-conscious with a missing tooth, especially if that tooth held a prominent place in your smile. An implant can fill that hole completely—from tooth root to visible crown. Additionally, all of our implants are designed to naturally blend in with your existing teeth. An implant is a great way to restore your smile and boost your confidence!
Implants are also important for your oral health. When a permanent tooth is lost, the jawbone underneath will gradually begin to deteriorate, which can cause problems in the future. Placing an implant will stop that deterioration almost immediately, so your jawbone will stay as strong and reliable as ever.
All the benefits of implants are available right here in our Austin office. If you’ve lost a permanent tooth, contact us today! You’ll be amazed at what an implant can do for you.
