Dental Implants in Austin Tx – Permanently Replace Missing Teeth
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants are are made of titanium and are placed into the jaw bone where teeth are missing to mimic a new root. The bone integrates with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for a new tooth. In addition, dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
Evaluation for Dental Implants
If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by either Dr. Frank or by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon referred by our practice. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.
Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jaw bone. Abutments attach to the implant, allowing a new tooth to be permanently affixed.
