Learn About Restorative Work Involving Dental Implants

When a person has lost even one tooth, planning the placement of a dental prosthetic can be an important step in giving them back their confident smile, and their optimal dental function. This work can often involve the placement of dental implants. If you are not familiar with implants, and what they can do for your long-term prosthetic support, you can be understandably curious about this. The implant’s placement makes it possible to restore a portion of a natural tooth not typically replaced by a prosthetic appliance, the root. An implant can give more support to an artificial tooth, making it more comfortable on a typical day. It can also be important for helping you maintain a healthy jawbone over time. At our Bellaire, TX dental practice, we can provide helpful information about the value of dental implants, and work with you on giving you back your full smile! (more…)

Orthodontic Work Can Help Solve A Problem With Your Bite

When you have no issues with your bite function, you may put little thought into the processes of biting and chewing.

One means of correcting bite problems is the straightening of a person’s teeth. If you have poor dental alignment, you may be moving your jaw awkwardly, leading to stress that builds to TMJ dysfunction. At our Bellaire, TX dental practice, we can provide orthodontic treatment for patients who have problems that affect their bite function.
