Dental Implants for Houston Area Residents
If you have lost one or more teeth due to periodontal (gum)
infection, tooth decay, or other causes, there is hope. Dental
implants are changing the way people feel about themselves!
Dental implants cannot be removed by patients at home and
function just like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth
regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with
confidence, knowing that their teeth appear natural.
The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are
placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The procedure
to place the implants into the jaw typically involves minimal
discomfort. These metal anchors act as substitutes for the roots
of missing teeth. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a
strong foundation for artificial teeth. The teeth supported by
dental implants function like natural teeth and are bonded to the
implant; they are not removed at night like partial or full dentures.
In the video below, Dr. Gregory explains how getting a single dental implant doesn’t have to take months like it used to do… At her office, it’s a one day process!
Dental Implants also help preserve facial structure and slow the appearance of aging by helping to prevent the bone from deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. Dental implants can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all the teeth in the mouth with a variety of prosthetic options. Dr. Gregory will be happy to discuss your particular needs and form a treatment plan that makes your smile healthier, more functional, and more beautiful than ever!
One of the most useful ways that dental implants can be used is for people who wear dentures. Depending on your underlying bone structure, New Teeth In A Day dentures can be placed on 4 to 6 implants which provides a permanent anchor for the denture. This way the dentures do not have to be removable and actually look, feel and function like your real teeth.
If you currently have dentures and would like to look into the “New Teeth In A Day” dentures for you, please call our office or fill out the form below and let’s see if you are a candidate for them.
