Dental Implants in North Austin
When a patient is unhappy because of missing teeth, implants can often be the perfect solution.
Tooth loss can keep people from smiling or having their picture taken, but it can also affect them physically. When a person can’t chew on one side of their mouth, it’s normal to compensate by using the other side more. The remaining teeth sustain more wear and tear. This can affect the jaw and even the look of the face.
Permanent Tooth Replacement
Dental implants are a permanent way to replace missing teeth and involve visiting Dr. Scaff over the course of a few months.
First, the mouth and jaw will be prepared to hold the implant, which will be placed at a later date. After placement, the patient will return for follow-up visits to ensure that the gums are healing well and adapting to the new implant. Dr. Scaff also wants to make sure that the patient is comfortable and loving their new teeth.
