If missing teeth are getting in the way of you living the life you want, Dr. Grantham of Copperas Cove, Texas is the man you want to see. Dr. Grantham and his compassionate and professional team can replace your missing tooth or teeth with strong, secure, long-lasting dental implants.
Dental implants are a more permanent tooth replacement that look and feel just like natural teeth. There is no embarrassing need to remove the prostheses like you would with some dentures. Dental implants are root replacements that are surgically attached to the jawbone. Once secure, a fabricated tooth is fixed securely to the implant. Implants are stable and secure and look so much like your natural teeth, no one will know you weren’t born with them.
Some of the benefits of choosing a dental implant are:
- Improved appearance
- Long-lasting results
- No removal for eating or cleaning required
- Helps preserve bone structure
- Helps to regain normal speech
- Look and feel just like natural teeth
- Improved oral health, as the adjacent teeth do not need to be altered in order to place an implant
- Comfortable and convenient
I am interested in a consult, what can I expect?
Dr. Grantham will have you in for an initial consult where he will go over the procedure and make sure you are a good, healthy candidate for implants. If you are approved and want to move forward with the procedure, you will be scheduled for at least two surgical visits. During your first visit, Dr. Grantham will place the implant using 3D guided implant precision. For the next few months, the implant will bond with the jawbone and become secure. When everything looks good, Dr. Grantham can then attach the seamlessly matched, fabricated tooth to the implant, and send you on your way!
If you are missing multiple teeth, several implants may provide a secure base for a fixed bridge. Implants can also be used to secure a full set of removable dentures for people who have no remaining natural teeth. This can greatly improve chewing ability, among other benefits.
