Do you have a missing tooth you would like to replace? While there is more than one option available, dental implants from Ritchie Dental Group in Marble Falls and Brady TX are state-of-the-art in tooth replacement.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants have been hailed as one of the great advances in the field of dentistry, and with good reason.
They consist of titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw. The posts fuse with your jawbone to form a solid anchor for a restoration. A single implant can support one artificial tooth, while several can support a bridge or dental arch.
The great thing about dental implants is that they function like natural teeth. The titanium post integrates with the bone so well that the body seldom recognizes them as a foreign object. Implants have a success rate of greater than ninety percent.
Conventional dentures may be more affordable than implant-anchored dentures. But because they are removable, most patients find them unreliably loose. They can also affect the ability to enjoy food. These issues disappear with implant-supported dentures.
At Ritchie Dental Group in Marble Falls and Brady TX we have placed dental implants in people from Burnet, Kingsland, and Meadowlakes, who also come to us for general and cosmetic dentistry. Contact us for an appointment today!
