Dental Implants

For over 30 years, dental implants have been improving the lives of those who have sought the treatment. Designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth, dental implants allow patients to laugh, speak, and smile with confidence.

Dental Implants

Our doctors at Austin Oral Surgery in Central Texas have had extensive training in dental implant surgery and are capable of everything from the simple placement of a single dental implant to comprehensive treatment requiring multiple implants, associated grafting, and reconstructive techniques. With dental implants, a person who has lost teeth can regain the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium root replacements that are gently placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These anchors act as tooth root substitutes. The underlying jawbone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Once the implants are ready to be restored with artificial teeth, small posts are attached to the implants, which provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth. Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Once you learn about dental implants, you finally realize there is a way to improve your life. When you lose several teeth – whether it’s a new situation or something you have lived with for years – chances are you have never become fully accustomed to losing such a vital part of yourself. Dental implants can be your doorway to renewed self-confidence and peace of mind. Implants are recommended over other reconstructive techniques for several reasons. It is not beneficial to sacrifice the structure of surrounding teeth to bridge a space. Removing a denture or a partial at night can be inconvenient. Dentures that slip can cause discomfort and embarrassment. Because dental implants are gently placed into the underlying jawbone, the recovery from the procedure is often associated with minimal discomfort throughout recovery.
