One or more missing teeth can impact the appearance of your smile, make it difficult for you to eat and speak properly, and even put you at risk for oral health problems. But the pressure exerted by your tooth root on your jaw when you bite or chew help keeps that bone strong. Without that root, your jawbone will begin to deteriorate. Our dentists and team offer implant dentistry in Dallas, Texas. Dental implants do more than replace the crown, or visible part of the tooth. They also replace the entire tooth to keep your smile healthy. Call Lake Highlands Dental at 214-613-1279 for your appointment with Dr. Lyndel Stripling, Dr. Sajjad Ashnagar, Dr. Rachael O'Brien or Dr. Dan Stipe.
