Dental Implants at Pearl Dentistry San Antonio – “The Ideal Permanent Solution For Missing Teeth”
When you lose a tooth, it can be a traumatizing experience that can leave you not only in great physical discomfort but emotionally scarred as well. Often missing teeth are replaced with dentures, bridges or other temporary solutions that just don’t feel natural. Not only that, but they require maintenance and eventually replacement.
Many patients are hesitant to even seek a solution for missing teeth as they figure nothing will feel the same as their natural teeth or that there is no financially feasible solution. The good news is—they’re wrong.
Dental Implants, available with affordable financing from Pearl Dentistry— have been universally acknowledged as the most effective permanent solution for tooth replacement. Dental implants have been around a long time but the modern iteration of these amazing medical devices make them indistinguishable from natural teeth.
While dental implants are a replacement for missing teeth, one cannot discount their striking resemblance, feel and function to your natural teeth. Because of their design, dental implants last a lifetime as they are intended to be a one-time, permanent solution to a temporary problem.
Dental implants prevent bone loss by being implanted directly into the jawbone, creating a lifelike replacement of healthy teeth. Unlike dentures or other temporary solutions, implants allow you to speak, eat and smile just as you normally would—there is no adjustment because they are a 1:1 replacement of your missing teeth.
What is Dental Implant Treatment?
Dental implants consist of a titanium, medical grade anchor screw that is anchored into the jawbone on a sedated patient. This anchor is a replacement for the root of a tooth to which the restoration or crown will be mounted on to complete the process. The crown is made of advanced materials with hardness equal to or better than normal teeth—so there is no impedance on everyday activities.
Pearl Dentistry is a leader in advanced dental implant procedures and will conduct a thorough dental examination with x-rays and an in-depth assessment of the jawbone. This helps us to create a customized treatment plan for your situation.
Your dental implant procedure will go smoothly provided you follow pre-op guidelines to ensure a smooth procedure and recovery. During your initial operation, the implants will be mounted into the jawbone while sedated and within three to six months we will apply the posts that will secure the crowns. After that, you just care for your implants like regular teeth and you may have another follow-up visit after three months, in order to make sure all is functioning well.
Dental implants can be used when:
- You have lost a single tooth or multiple teeth—much more effective and natural than a bridge or partial dentures
- Missing entire arches of teeth — Feels more natural and lasts a lifetime versus the limited life of dentures
Advantages of Dental Implants:
- Prevents jawbone deterioration and maintains bone density.
- Keeps chewing natural with no adjustment needed
- Fits naturally and does not require learning to speak or chew differently
- Last a lifetime and are as reliable as natural teeth
- Enhances your confidence and self-image
