Dental Implants

If you have lost one or more teeth, then the dentists at Southern Dental can be the solution with Dental Implants in Houston. Dental implants are permanent replacements for missing teeth. Implants are made of titanium, a very pure metal which is readily accepted by the human body, and the implant actually stimulates your bone to attach to it.

After the implant is fully integrated into the bone, a connector is attached, and then the final, custom-manufactured crown is put in place. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, or they can support bridges and even complete dentures.

Dental implants look natural and feel like your own teeth; eating with dental implants feels like eating with your natural teeth because the implants are firmly anchored in your jawbone. Patients with dental implants report that it's like getting their own teeth back. Implants done by a skilled Periodontist and the new stronger materials that are used today your implants can last a lifetime.

If you want a second chance at a healthy smile, if you want the confidence of eating and smiling without worrying about loose dentures, then ask us about dental implants from Southern Dental.

Dental implants are used to provide stability and support to partial or complete dentures as well as to replace missing teeth. Dental implants consist of prosthetic teeth and roots that are implanted into the jaw bone surgically. Implants are done by a dentist or periodontist who specializes in the gums and supporting bones. The implants are usually made of titanium for a strong and light device that will have a more natural feeling and last longer. The artificial teeth implanted look like natural teeth and will blend with the rest of the natural teeth, improving or restoring a patient’s smile.

When are dental implants needed?

  • Replace missing teeth
  • Support other dental devices such as bridges, partial or complete dentures
  • Restore a smile
  • Prevent teeth shifting due to missing teeth
  • Enhance chewing, speech, facial tissues

How are dental implants inserted?

Dental implants require a few visits in order to get them placed. First, molds and x-rays are needed to see the gum, tissue, bone and spacing of the teeth in order to best prepare for the insertion of the implants. The next step requires to surgically place the implants into the bone. Depending on the type of implant the patient needs, this could be done in one or two surgeries. The healing and integration process of the dental implant could then take up to six months.  Once the implants have healed, the prosthetic teeth are fitted onto the implants and adjusted to blend in with the rest of the natural teeth.

Once your treatment is completed, your dentist will provide you with care instructions to help take care of the dental implant. Good oral hygiene as well as regular dental visits are important to ensure the success of your treatment and your dental health.
