If you are frustrated with your dentures you are not alone. That is why our team here at Tommy J. Baugh, DDS in Houston, Texas, is happy to talk to you about dental implants and how they can help you with your dentures.

Dental implants have been known for decades to restore a single lost tooth. And while that is correct, a dental implant can be used to restore one lost tooth, now they have multiple uses. Dentures have also had a reputation over the years to restore a full set of missing teeth. However, dentures can slip and fall at times, making talking and eating difficult and sometimes embarrassing. Now, thanks to modern dentistry, dental implants can be used to lock dentures in place, so there is no more slipping or sliding from your dentures.

Dental bridges can also be a helpful tool when it comes to restoring more than one tooth. If you struggle with your dental bridge sometimes, a dental implant can also hold them in place, giving your jaw full function again. Dental implants fuse with your bone, which makes them very strong and ideal to lock things in place. They are compatible with your body and can last for several years to come.
