West Lake Hills Dental – Austin, TX
Implant dentistry permanently replaces a tooth with a functioning artificial tooth.
Implant dentistry involves placing small alloy posts in the stead of one’s natural tooth root. The tooth implant then acts as a permanent foundation on which any type of restoration (crown, bridge, denture, etc) may be placed. Where dentures or bridges were the only solution in the past, dental implants gives you a new spectrum of options!
A consultation will be needed to determine if implant dentistry is indeed the best option for you. If dental implants are a great option for you, our partner dentists will carefully place your new dental implants in the place of the natural tooth root. Once the dental implant(s) has healed (weeks to months depending on your situation) we will place your permanent dental restoration. You will be able to laugh, chew and chat with no concern of missing teeth or dentures falling out!
