If you are missing teeth or have severe tooth pain, it might be time to see a dental implant surgeon. Here at Rockwall Oral Surgery, we can reassure you that you are in the best hands, with years of experience. We make it so that you feel comfortable and informed every step of the way. It is important to be on top of your teeth procedures and ensure you do everything you can to stay healthy.  

The Quality of Life 

The staff here at Rockwall Oral Surgery understands that missing teeth can have an impact on your everyday life. However, with a little help from dental implants, it is possible to restore the health and beauty of your beautiful smile. There are many benefits to deciding on visiting a dental implant surgeon and we are here to share a few: 

Improves Eating Habits 

Using your teeth for the digestion process is essential. Properly chewing your food helps to break it down, making the nutrients easily accessible for absorption into the body. When you are missing teeth, the process is interpreted, making it harder for your body to absorb the nutrients it needs. 

Implants can be put in place to help provide a strong and stable support system for your replacement teeth. The new crowns should allow you to chew normally, allowing you to gain the nutrients your body needs. 

Polished Speech 

Teeth play important roles when it comes to your speech. First, the airflow between your teeth. Second, certain sounds rely on your tongue to be able to touch the back of your teeth. When you are missing teeth, it can cause a lisp making it difficult for others to understand what you are trying to say. 

Comfort Counts

Many patients complain about how regular dentures are uncomfortable. If they become loose or do not fit properly, they rub against your gums leading to painful sores. 

Implants on the other hand, are much more comfortable. Rather than sitting right on your gums, your replacement teeth are held together by titanium rods. This takes the pressure off the tissue. Therefore, you never have to worry about implants slipping out of place or rubbing against your gums. 

Permanent Option with a Dental Implant Surgeon 

With traditional dentures you have to take them out and clean them daily, this can get rather time consuming. Implants, however, can be cared for just like your natural teeth. You should also try to stay away from hard objects, like ice or popcorn kernels. 

Importance of Your Jaw 

When you lose your teeth, your jawbone begins to weaken, and the bone mass deteriorates. Consulting a dental implant surgeon, we can see the shape of your jawbone and see how much it has changed over time. Because implants are inserted into the jaw, they will mimic the roots of natural teeth. The rods stimulate the bone and help maintain the shape of your jawbone.
