What is a dental implant?
If you have a missing tooth or missing teeth, you may feel self-conscious. But missing teeth are about more than concern over your appearance. When a tooth or teeth are lost, it can also lead to more tooth loss through shifting, wear, decay, and breakage. We offer tooth replacement options, including dental implants in Humble, TX, for these reasons.
At Humble Dentistry, we care about your smile health and dental implants are the best option to replace missing teeth permanently.
A dental implant is a durable replacement root that your Humble, TX dentist implants in your jaw. The replacement root bonds with your jawbone, and, after several months, we provide a replacement tooth, also called a dental crown.
Often people believe that a dental implant is a replacement tooth, but it is actually your replacement root! And dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that restores a tooth root. With proper care and regular dental visits, your dental implants in Humble, TX can last for decades and even for life.
If you have a missing tooth or teeth, we invite you to schedule an exam to discuss your tooth replacement options. If you would like more information about dental implants in Humble, TX, we also encourage you to get in touch today.
