Do you have a missing tooth you would like to replace? While there is more than one option available, dental implants from Stephen Ratcliff Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Arlington 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.
Dental implants are titanium posts placed 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 fuses 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 are not issues with implant-supported dentures.
At Stephen Ratcliff Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Arlington we have placed dental implants in people from Mansfield and Grand Prairie, who also come to us for complete general dentistry services. Call to schedule an appoitment with us today!
