Dental implants are a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. Our skilled dentist, Dr. Hien Truong, is able to offer dental implants in Houston, Texas with skill and precision. Dental implants are a surgical procedure and we strive to make your treatment as comfortable as possible; we will guide you through each step of the process to help alleviate your fears and give you confidence . Dental implants are generally placed through these measures:
- First, titanium posts are implanted into your jawbone where teeth are missing.
- The gums and bone are allowed to heal as the jawbone fuses with the dental implant.
- Once healed, an attachment called an abutment is placed on the titanium post.
- Your dental restoration, whether it be a crown or a bridge, is placed onto the abutment. At our dental office, we also use dental implants to support removable partial dentures.
Dental implants have many advantages. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth and are incredibly long lasting. Dental implants also improve your ability to eat and speak more than other removable options.
