If you have lost your teeth, dental implants can restore your beautiful smile, permanently. Unlike dentures, dental implants do not need to be removed nor do they need special maintenance.
Dental implants provided by Cornerstone Dentistry in Van, Texas are a tooth restoration method that can last a lifetime. Dr. Benjamin Bunt is highly skilled in implant dentistry and offers dental implants in East Texas for patients who have lost teeth to decay, injury, or periodontal disease.
Dental implants are the most natural replication of your natural teeth. Each implant functions similar to your individual tooth with the crown taking the place of the tooth and the post of the implant functioning as a tooth root.
Once your implant is in place you are able to still enjoy all of your favorite foods, without restriction. Implants are maintained in the same way as your normal teeth would be, with normal brushing, flossing and routine dental check ups.
Implants provide a permanent solution for teeth replacement and will not slip or shift as they post in a similar manner as a tooth root.
Implant dentistry has been successfully used for decades and the technology has only improved over time. Contact our office to schedule a consultation or to learn more about dental implants.
Dental implants are comprised of a titanium post that replaces the root and is generally placed at the level of the underlying bone. Attached to this is a abutment—the part that sticks through the gums and is used to support or attach the teeth.
Titanium is utilized because it has been used with great success in implants throughout the body. A biocompatible material, titanium, integrates with your bone, becoming a part of you.
