What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Over a healing period, known as osseointegration, the jawbone grows around the posts and secures their position. Once the posts have healed, a restoration like a dental crown or dental bridge is placed over it, and normal activities like eating, speaking, and smiling are much more enjoyable again!
What’s the process like for placing an implant?
The first step to getting dental implants in Austin is a thorough consultation with one of our dentists. During this consultation, our dentist will evaluate your gum and bone structure where we plan to place the implant. With our dental technology, we pre-plan the treatment, ensuring a less invasive procedure and results that fit your goals. Our dentist will then perform the procedure to place the implant, allow the implant to heal, and then craft a custom restoration to complete the process.
Am I a candidate for dental implants?
Issues like gum disease, tooth decay, or dental trauma can lead to tooth loss. So, whether you’re looking to replace one or multiple teeth, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Besides tooth loss, ideal candidates for dental implants essentially have a healthy jaw and gums to provide a solid foundation for the implant. Good candidates also have good oral and overall health to ensure the longevity of the implant.Contact Us
