Dental Implants Can Replace Missing Teeth
Patients who have missing teeth can benefit from dental implants, a modern tooth replacement option. Dental implants look just like natural teeth and help improve oral health. Tooth loss can cause problems if they are not replaced, including drifting of remaining teeth and jaw bone deterioration. We can place and restore dental implants and implant supported dentures at our office for your convenience.

How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants can fix one missing tooth at a time, or a full-arch if missing teeth with implant supported dentures. Dental implants have a screw, an abutment, and a dental crown we can use our in-house CEREC® machine to mill in under one hour! The screw is inserted into your jaw bone right in the space of the missing tooth and it will integrate with the existing bone and become stable, just like a tooth root. When the dental implant is ready to be restored, we can create a life-like dental crown on the day of your appointment and attach it securely to the post with the abutment.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants have many benefits in addition to improving the smile by filling in gaps of missing teeth. Some of the benefits include:
- Helping restore a beautiful smile
- Building up self-confidence
- Protecting the jaw from further bone loss
- Helping you eat the foods you love
- Improving overall oral health
- Being a more permanent solution to missing teeth
Replacing missing teeth is important for maintaining good oral health. Even if you have multiple missing teeth, we have a solution for you. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Tan at our McAllen, TX, office, please call us today!
