If you have lost one or more teeth, you have likely noticed a negative impact on the function of your smile. Missing teeth can make it difficult to speak, chew, and eat as normal, and the gaps in your smile may also make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. In order to restore your smile’s beauty, function, and health, we may recommend dental implants. Implants are a permanent tooth replacement option we provide at Nautical Dental to ensure your smile is returned to its full potential.
A dental implant is a small post that is surgically inserted in the jawbone, replacing the root of the missing tooth. Dr. Eric Cornelius works closely with a local specialist to ensure the placement of the implant is successful. After a period of healing, our dentist will create and place a custom dental implant restoration on top of the implant post. The restoration replaces the crown of the missing tooth and restores your smile’s full beauty and functionality. Depending on which teeth are missing, your implant restoration may be a dental crown, a complete denture, a partial denture, or a dental bridge.
Once your dental implants are in place, you will be able to smile, laugh, eat, and speak with confidence, knowing your smile is complete and healthy once again. If you believe dental implants in San Antonio, Texas, may be right for you, we welcome you to contact us today for more information. We are eager to improve your smile!
