Dental Implants in Pearland
In Pearland, dental implants are available as a top option for replacing a lost tooth or teeth at the dental practice of Carlee A. Reiler DDS. Losing a tooth can be stressful. It might happen suddenly, caused by an unforeseen injury. Or it happens over time, through tooth decay or gum disease. Whatever the cause, when there's an empty space where there was once a natural tooth, there arise concerns over the look and feel of living with an incomplete smile. What's more, a missing tooth can signal a further decline in one's overall oral health and come with further risks if left unreplaced. For these reasons and more, dentists recommend replacing missing teeth as soon as possible after they are lost. And dental implants are widely regarded as the most reliable method for tooth replacement that modern dentistry provides. Among the services we provide to Pearland, dental implants
remain a popular topic with many inquiring patients.
Pearland Dental Implants
The dental implant procedure involves inserting a biocompatible post in the place of the root. This post simulates a natural root by finding a stable and natural place in the jawbone. Most implant procedures can be performed under local anesthesia, and start with creating a socket into which the post can be set. Once the post is in place, the surrounding bone grows tightly around the surface of the implant over a period of 3 to 6 months, through a process called osseointegration. A dental implant can stimulate bone regrowth in cases where bone loss has already occured, restoring natural contours to the face. Once secure, the post is used to support a dental crown—the way a root supports the natural crown of a tooth—a dental bridge, or simply serve to stabilize a denture.
