Every tooth in your mouth plays a role in the overall quality of your smile and oral health. Losing even a single tooth can have a negative impact on oral health and function which is why we always encourage patients to replace a missing tooth as soon as possible. One of the most beneficial tooth replacement solutions we offer at our practice in Midland, TX, is dental implants, a permanent way to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are designed to function just like your regular teeth by replacing the entire tooth from the root to the tip. We offer full-scope dental implant care at our practice so you have your implants placed and restored by one experienced team. Many patients find dental implants to be a convenient way to replace missing teeth while maintaining or improving the esthetics of their smile.
Dental implants are fabricated tooth structures surgically placed into the jaw bone to replace a missing tooth. When a tooth is extracted or lost, the jaw bone is at risk for bone loss because there is no longer a tooth root there to stimulate it. Our doctors can perform surgery to connect the base of the implant to the jaw bone. As the post of the implant heals, it starts to fuse with the natural bone which in turn creates a strong foundation for the rest of the implant structure. This process also restores optimal functioning of your smile. Once the foundation is secure, we can attach a dental crown on top of the gum line, or a denture or bridge if we’re replacing an entire arch. This helps restore your bite and creates a more uniform look.
Our doctors offer both dental implant placement and dental implant restoration services which means you can have your entire implant procedure done at our brand new, state-of-the-art practice. We perform guided implant surgery using some of the last dental technologies to ensure optimal placement of every implant. We can also perform bone grafting and tooth extractions in house if we need to prepare your mouth for implants.
At The Dental Studio of Midland, we understand how distressing it can be to lose a tooth or live with missing teeth. Our doctors have extensive experience working with patients who need dental implants and both doctors are doctors of dental surgery. Dr. Tye Thompson is a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry so he stays up to date on the latest protocols and techniques.
