Dental Implant Procedure and Placement of Restorations in Pflugerville Area

Teeth that have been extracted or are missing from the smile will cause several different problems. First, it can result in a less attractive smile with gaps. Second, it can impact the efficiency of the mouth, especially in chewing and speaking. Third, it can also result in bone resorption (loss) leading to changes in facial features if not replaced in an appropriate manner. Dr. Jordan Tucker of Elite Smiles of Pflugerville encourages patients who are considering restorations to think about the benefits of using dental implants.

Dental implants 101

Dr. Jordan Tucker describes dental implants as the next best thing to a natural tooth.

Dental implants may also be used by a dentist to anchor a full denture or to act as a foundation for one or both sides of a dental bridge. Our team often recommends these versatile restorations for individuals who want a  long-lasting and highly effective solution for their smile after tooth loss.
