What Is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are the most trusted and reliable solution in dentistry for missing teeth. They are the only treatment that can maintain a strong jaw and avoid future dental problems that occur due to the absence of tooth roots. The dental implant itself is a small, screw-like post made out of titanium that is inserted into the jaw. Once it fuses with the bone, it will work just like a tooth root.
A complete tooth restoration includes the dental implant, a connector piece called an abutment, and the restoration (replacement tooth or teeth). The number of implants you need will depend on your restoration, but implants can support a single crown, a bridge, or even dentures. Dr. Gonzalez at Star City Dental in El Paso helps many patients make the move from traditional dentures so they can experience the many benefits of having dental implants securely hold their dentures in place.

Why Replace Missing Teeth? It's Not Just About Good Looks
When even just one tooth is lost, the empty tooth socket starts to deteriorate. This can allow nearby teeth to shift into the gap, causing crooked teeth.
When missing teeth and deteriorating bone allow teeth to move out of position, your upper and lower teeth no longer meet like they once did. This causes uneven wear.
Missing teeth can lead to even more lost teeth. As the jawbone recedes, the skin on your face sags and your facial features appear sunken, making you look older than you are.
