When a person is missing one or more teeth, it may be difficult to determine which is the best treatment to restore your smile. At Michael Nussbaum, DDS, we provide dental implants for patients in Austin TX
to comprehensively renew an individual’s dental anatomy even after a tooth is lost. Dr. Nussbaum has years of experience in rejuvenating the smiles of those in Austin and its surrounding communities.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is made up of three components: the post, the abutment, and the restoration. Your dentist places the implant post into the jawbone to provide a secure foundation for the restoration. Leaving an empty space unaddressed allows neighboring teeth to shift into the void, causing misalignment. Resorption is another complication that may occur if a space is not filled in with a replacement tooth. Implants provide stimulation to the jawbone, stopping reabsorption and preventing facial structures from looking contracted.
Implant Treatment at Michael Nussbaum, DDS
When patients come to our dental office looking to restore their lost tooth, they must first have their dental anatomy examined by our skilled dentist. This is to make sure your oral health is good enough to undergo the placement procedure and minimizes chances for dental implant failure.
There are four stages of implant treatment: consultation, placement, healing, and the restoration. During the consultation dental images are taken of your smile to determine the optimal location for your implant posts. After the placement procedure, which is inserting the implant into the jawbone, you must give surrounding hard tissues a significant amount of time to recover from the surgery. Once your bone has healed, a crown or prosthetic is affixed to the dental implant, allowing you to regain complete dental function and bite strength.
At Michael Nussbaum, DDS we only provide visually appealing restorations that can seamlessly blend in with surrounding teeth. Our prosthetics are strong and resilient, keeping their sheen and durable enough to sustain everyday tasks.
