Losing teeth due to injury, accident, gum disease or tooth decay doesn't just affect your smile, it can affect your ability to enjoy life.
Missing teeth makes it difficult to eat, and even increases the likelihood of losing additional teeth. When you lose a tooth, you not only lose the bone that held that tooth in place but it also decreases the bone level of the teeth on either side of the extraction site. As the bone level recedes, those teeth have an increased chance of becoming mobile and start drifting towards the gap. If not caught and treated early on, more extractions will be needed. The cycle then starts again with the next tooth in line.
Dental implants are essentially getting new tooth "roots." They provide a strong foundation for both permanent or replacement teeth that a dentist will make to match your natural ones. Dental implants have numerous advantages over other solutions. Unlike dentures, you’ll never have to fuss with things like messy adhesives to keep your teeth in place. Implants improve your smile, appearance, speech and oral health. You’ll be able to eat your favorite foods again without pain.
With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.
Here is what some clients have told us about their experience with us:
Yesterday I went for a general cleaning. Teeth felt great afterwards. The people at Brownsville Dentistry are very considerate, caring about my dental health and well being. - Joan Walker G.
Thursday morning I had an appointment at 10:00 A.M. Upon entering the office I was met by one of the secretaries. Immediately a technician called my name and took me to a room where she x-ray my teeth. Afterwards the young doctor came in and checked my teeth and we had a small conversation concerning my health. Afterwards a young lady came in to clean my teeth. Before departing I was given an appointment for Oct. 19.2017. Overall experience was exceptional. - Guadalupe L.

The staff and doctors (Carlos Diaz, DDS) were great, they showed knowledge and compassion for their practice. I was scared since it was my first Dentist visit, however, Dr. Diaz made sure that I had no pain by keeping constant communication during the procedure. I recommend Dr. Diaz at Brownsville Family Dentistry to anyone who has not been to the dentist in the past. - Agustin C.
