Losing a tooth can be a traumatic experience. Left untreated, tooth loss can lead to misalignment, bone loss, and low self-esteem.
At Pendergrass & Wilkie Dentistry, we offer dental implants—threaded, titanium posts that function just like natural tooth roots.
Why should you schedule a dental implant consultation at our Amarillo, TX, office?
Implants Offer Several Benefits over Traditional Tooth Replacement
Prevent Bone Recession
One of the natural consequences of tooth loss is bone recession. Along with weakening your jaw, this process can give you a sunken or aged appearance. Drs. Tyler L. Pendergrass and Eric S. Wilkie recommend dental implants because they prevent bone atrophy and maintain a healthy, full facial structure.
Improve Your Bite & Confidence
Missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious when you smile. And if you choose to replace missing teeth with removable dentures, you may still feel worried when they slip, smack, or click. Dental implants stabilize your restoration so you can eat your favorite foods, speak clearly, and smile with confidence.
