Patients don’t always realize the importance of replacing missing teeth. Replacing a hind tooth is just as important as replacing a front one. A missing molar might not directly affect your smile, but you will start to notice gaps between your teeth. At Colony Dental in Sugar Land, TX, we have multiple restorative options.
Patients looking for dentures and implants in Sugar Land, TX, can trust us to replace their missing teeth. Thanks to our restorative options, you can smile, speak, and chew without limitations. Dentures and implants are two of the most popular tooth replacement options available.
An implant is a structure made of a titanium screw and an artificial tooth. The titanium screw is positioned into the jawbone and left there for a few months. Time is needed for the screw to become properly attached. After confirming the attachment, we can attach the permanent artificial tooth to the screw. In the meantime, we can place a temporary tooth over the screw.
Dental implants can last a lifetime and are popular among our patients at Colony Dental. You’ll need to take good care of your implant, so it doesn’t stain or break. With proper care, you might never need maintenance for it. Patients can get multiple implants as long as their jawbones are strong enough to support them.
Unlike implants and bridges, dentures are removable. Patients who have dentures can take them off at night and put them back on in the morning. A denture can be used to replace several missing consecutive teeth or an entire row of teeth. An alternative to full mouth implant restoration is an implant overdenture. In this method, 2 to 4 implants are placed in the jawbone, and a denture is made to snap into the implants. This is a removable restoration but is more secure than a conventional denture without implants.
