    Am I A Good Candidate for Implants

    Replacement with dental implants is generally considered the best solution for missing or damaged teeth. However, our dental experts will perform a comprehensive assessment of your oral cavity and jawbones to determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment.

    The first and foremost requirement for implant placement is sufficient jawbone thickness. Since implant posts are directly inserted into the jawbone, it is crucial that your bone tissue is strong enough to support them. If you have a thin jawbone or suffer from bone loss, we may recommend procedures like bone grafts or sinus lifts to enhance bone thickness.

    For the success of this procedure, you must maintain proper oral hygiene during and after treatment. Depending on your oral health and missing teeth, we will decide which type of dental implants in Houston will best meet your needs.

    Question About Dental Implants?

    Process of Dental Implants at Our Facility

    Consultation And Oral Exam

    The preliminary step of the treatment is a consultation with our dental specialists. We will evaluate your oral health, jawbone density, and other factors to finalize your eligibility for this procedure.

    Implant Surgery

    Once you have been approved, we will schedule an appointment for implant surgery. During this process, we will anesthetize the treatment site and place a small incision in the gums to access the bone. We will drill a small hole in the bone to place the implant post. After the surgery, we will clean the area and suture the gum tissues to facilitate the healing process.

    Restoration

    The healing period may last for 3 to 6 months, during which the titanium post integrates with the surrounding bone. After this duration, we will place a customized restoration (crown, bridge, or denture) over the secured implants so you can enjoy a fuller smile!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I get an implant in one day?
    In some cases, you may be able to get an implant in just one day, depending on the type of implant you will be receiving. In these cases, the restoration your doctor provides will be a temporary appliance to keep your tooth healthy and functional until you have fully healed from your dental implant placement surgery. With your temporary restoration, you’ll be able to speak and eat normally during the healing process.

    Your doctor will schedule a series of follow-up appointments to track your healing process and take impressions or models of your teeth. These will help the lab create your custom-made restoration. Your permanent restoration will be durable and more natural-looking than your temporaries. We recommend coming to our office in Houston for a consultation to see what type of dental implant might work best for you.

    Do dental implants stop bone loss?
    Yes. After losing a tooth, your jaw will no longer be stimulated by the natural pressure of chewing and biting. This causes bone loss to occur and also weakens the jaw bone.

    When the dental implant post is placed, it will bond directly into the jaw bone and act as an artificial tooth root. This titanium “tooth root” transmits the force of chewing and biting through the dental crown and into your jaw bone just like a real tooth would, keeping it healthy and strong.

    Can my dental implant become infected?

    Yes, dental implants can become infected, but this is a very rare complication. This type of infection is known as “peri-implantitis,” and usually only occurs if the implant is not kept clean or is not properly cared for after surgery.

    Follow your doctor’s instructions while recovering, and be sure to brush and floss regularly after your implant has healed to avoid peri-implantitis and maintain a healthy implant.

    How long will my dental implant last?

    When placed properly and maintained with care, dental implants can last for 30 years or more. In fact, It’s quite common for patients to keep their implants for the rest of their lives.

    The implant restoration, however, may not last as long. Restorations such as dental crowns or overdentures take on regular wear and tear from chewing, biting, and more. After time, the restoration may need to be replaced to keep your smile healthy and functional. By coming in for regular exams, your dentist can check to ensure your restoration is in good condition.

    How are dental implants made?
    Titanium dental implants are made in trusted laboratories that supply a wide selection of pre-selected standard post sizes. The restoration, on the other hand, is a custom-made appliance. This ensures each patient gets a result that meets their exact needs. Your doctor will either make your dental implant in-house using a milling machine, or they will send detailed impressions or models to a partner lab.

    This lab will create a long-lasting, resilient dental implant restoration just for you. Most crowns are crafted out of porcelain which is durable and looks uniquely similar to tooth enamel. Once the crown is ready, the lab will send it back to our office in Houston, and we will complete the procedure by securely attaching your implant crown in place.

    What are All-on-4 implants?
    All-on-4 implants are great for patients who are looking to replace an entire arch of teeth. By using just 4 implants, your entire upper or lower set of teeth can be replaced in as little as one appointment. All-on-4 is more permanent and natural-looking than dentures, and usually costs less than replacing each tooth individually.
    What is a single tooth implant?

    Single tooth implants are the most-frequently used dental implant and are made up of two main parts. The first is the dental implant, which is a titanium rod with a screw-like shape. The second part is the dental crown, or restoration, which will be attached to the titanium rod. This dental crown reinstates the shape, function, and appearance of your natural tooth. Unlike a partial denture, single-tooth implants are extremely durable and never move or shift.
