Your Dental Implant Options
If you are a suitable candidate with a strong jawbone, dental implants could be a great option for completely replacing damaged or missing teeth. Compared to other tooth replacement options, dental implants offer many advantages, because they:
- Look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth
- Provide up to 90 percent of the biting power of natural teeth
- Prevent bone and tissue loss in your jaw, helping you maintain a more youthful look
- Can last a lifetime with proper care
Through a process called osseointegration, dental implants literally fuse with your jawbone, providing a strong, sturdy foundation for many restoration options, including dental crowns and dental bridges. Depending on your situation and what you want to accomplish, we will recommend personalized options for you.
We can even replace an entire arch of teeth using All-on-4® dental implants! Our dentists will precisely place four dental implants in your top or bottom jaw, then secure your full-arch teeth replacements!
If an All-on-4 dental implant treatment isn’t right for you, but you would still like to replace all the teeth in your top or bottom jaw or both, we can also provide implant-retained or implant-supported dentures. We can even give you a same-day smile with immediate load-bearing implant-retained dentures! You’ll walk into our Houston, TX dental office needing new teeth and walk out with a beautiful set of pearly whites!
Additional Tooth Repair And Tooth Replacement Options
If you are not a candidate for dental implants, or you simply do not want them, we have other options to repair or replace your damaged or missing teeth, including full and partial traditional dentures.
If you want to save damaged teeth, we can completely cap them with dental crowns. Not only do dental crowns cover up damage like cracks, chips, and stains, but they also help to strengthen and protect your teeth from further damage. Here are some of the issues that dental crowns can help with:
- Severe cracks and fractures
- Teeth that have become weakened by repeated dental treatments or root canals
- A tooth that has a cavity too large to be repaired by a tooth filling
We also offer partial dental crowns, called inlays and onlays.
To replace teeth, we can use traditional dental bridges. If you have one or more adjacent missing teeth, we will attach a dental bridge to your surrounding healthy teeth and fill the gap in your smile!
Maybe you just have a cavity you want to take care of before it gets any worse. If so, our office also offers tooth-colored fillings.
If that cavity has grown and tooth decay has begun to affect the soft tissue inside your teeth, we also offer state-of-the-art laser endodontics to perform gentle, effective root canals!
