Dental Implants Houston & Sugar Land TX

Implants are specifically made posts that substitute the roots of teeth that are lost and are used to maintain a new crown, fixed bridge or denture. An implant is prepared of titanium, a tough and lightweight material which has been exposed to be compatible with the body and secure for use.

Our Dentist will choose the variety, dimension, and design of dental implant. This selection is made according to where the implant will be placed, what type of bone and how much bone is vacant, and the design of the tooth or teeth that will be supported by the implant(s). Your dentist will decide which type is best suitable to your requirements.

In which condition we need to substitute absent teeth?

Teeth are a key part of our digestive system as it is required for chewing food. Teethplay a task in communication and are also a significant part of our look. Placing implants also prevents gaps and spaces from appearing between our teeth when a tooth is lost.

Is there an age bound to implants?

We can be too young for implants but age itself is not a barrier. The condition of your health is a significant criteria and our dentist will determine your fitness for surgery. After general health the most essential criteria is possibly whether there is sufficient quality and quantity of bone to sustain the implants. Our dentists will review each caseand advise if you are appropriatecandidate.Contraryto what many peoplebelieve, (relative) old age alone is not a barrier to having dental implants.

Implant Denture

An implant-supported denture is a type of denture that is supported and attached to implants. There are two types of implant supported dentures: Screw retained and Snap on. Basic dentures rests on the gums, and often require paste to keep in place. An implant-supported denture has special attachments that "screw" into or "snap" onto attachments on the implants. Dental implants have many advantages over other teeth replacement options. They are designed to be long lasting and are more comfortable and stable than conventional dentures. This allowing patients to retain a more natural biting and chewing capacity and more importantly more comfort.

In addition, because implant-supported dentures will replace some of the tooth roots, a patient's bone is better preserved. With conventional dentures, the bone eventually begins to resorb or deteriorate. Dental implants help to keep the bone healthy and patients comfortable with their new smile.
