Patients of Round Rock dentist Dr. Bhavesh Bhakta can start 2014 in better health by receiving dental implants or learning about available tooth replacement options. Besides promising patients’ convenience and cosmetic improvements, replacements like dental implants offer lasting oral health benefits. Patients in Round Rock, TX, can protect their oral health by visiting Dr. Bhakta to receive any needed dental care and learn whether they are eligible for implants.
Many people do not realize that losing teeth can have serious effects on oral health. If only some teeth are lost, the remaining teeth may become misaligned. Whether some or all teeth have been lost, loss of jawbone density will occur, since stimulation from the roots of the teeth is what normally causes the jawbone to continue growing. When the jawbone breaks down, or resorbs, surface tooth replacements like dentures will require refitting and resizing. If bone deterioration continues too long, anchored replacements like implants may not even be a reasonable option. For this reason, Dr. Bhakta encourages his Round Rock patients to consider dental implants and other tooth replacements early on.
Dental implants are placed directly in the jawbone, which ensures stability. When patients receive implants, their bone density levels stay constant and patients can eat and talk without fear of the implant coming loose. Typically, Dr. Bhakta recommends that patients in Round Rock, TX, have good oral health or receive dental care before receiving implants, to improve the likelihood of the implants being accepted. However, Dr. Bhakta works with each patient to determine what will be best for his or her situation.
Tooth replacements like dental implants offer various benefits to people in Round Rock who are concerned with protecting their oral health. Patients who explore these options early may prevent later health complications and enjoy a greater range of replacement choices. Patients who are interested in tooth replacement options or other dental care in Round Rock, TX, are encouraged to call Dr. Bhakta's office to learn more or to set up an appointment.
