Tooth loss is a common problem for many Americans today. In fact, about 70 percent of adults are missing at least 1 tooth. Although all age groups can lose a tooth from dental health problems such as gum disease or decay, you become more prone to losing teeth as you age. Missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance and make it hard to eat and talk. Missing teeth also increase your risk of gum disease, tooth decay, bone loss, tooth loss, and loss of your facial structure.
Antoine Dental Center can restore your health, your smile, and your confidence with dental implants procedure. Dr. Nazari and our team of highly skilled implant dentists have received hundreds of hours of education and advanced training to provide this permanent solution for your missing teeth. We use the latest dental technology to plan the implants treatment that is right for you.
What Are Dental Implants?
Implants are titanium screw-like posts that replace the root of your natural tooth. Over a period of about 4 months, your jawbone heals around the implant and holds it secure and sturdy. After it heals, we attach an abutment to the implant to firmly hold your restoration in place. These restorations include porcelain crowns, dental bridges, or dentures.
Implants look and function like your natural teeth. They are comfortable, easy to use, and easy to clean. They can restore your ability to eat and talk, lift your sagging face, and improve your dental health. In fact, implants are the only restoration proven to prevent bone loss and strengthen your jawbone.
Types of Dental Implants
Our dental office is your source for all types of implants in Houston, including traditional dental implants, mini implants, All on 4 implants, and All on 6 implants. The condition of your remaining teeth, the number of teeth you are missing, your jawbone density, your oral health and overall health, and even your finances will help determine whether you are a better candidate for a particular type of dental implant process.
If you are in good health, free of oral disease, and have sufficient density in your jawbone, you may be a good candidate for traditional implants. Using our 3D imaging, we can get incredibly accurate 3D pictures of your jaw. This helps us determine the number of implants you need to stabilize your restorations and exactly where to place your implants, giving you more comfortable and longer lasting results.
If you have good bone structure, the dental implant surgery usually does not take very long. You can choose from our sedation options to provide you with a relaxing, pain-free dental procedure.
If you do not have sufficient bone density, our periodontist may do bone grafting for additional support. If you cannot undergo an invasive surgery like this, we may also offer another implant solution.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants require proper planning and skill for success. Not all dentists have the knowledge or technology to offer this. Our trained implants experts are pleased to provide this implant option and will help determine whether you can benefit from mini implants.
