Dental Implants in Round Rock

Dental implants effectively restore missing teeth and offer a permanent alternative to removable partial or complete dentures. Dental implants are incredibly sturdy and long-lasting and are an excellent solution for those needing to replace or fill in missing teeth.

After you've decided a dental implant is the solution for your dental health needs, a titanium implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone with a temporary cap. After this implant has had adequate time to heal, you can fully restore your tooth with a dental implant crown. 

Implant-supported teeth have a natural appearance and can often improve or restore a patient's smile as an added benefit!

Reasons For Dental Implants:

  • Replacing one or more missing teeth without affecting neighboring teeth
  • Fix teeth shifting into a missing tooth space, causing joint pain or bite problems.
  • Restore a patient's confidence through their smile.
  • Make a bridge or denture more secure and comfortable by providing support.

What Does Getting Dental Implants Involve?

Dental implants usually take a couple of visits over a couple of months. Temporary caps are added after your implant is surgically placed, but the permanent solution requires your jaw to heal fully. That being said, your new smile will be worth the wait.

  1. During an initial appointment, molds and X-rays of your jaw and teeth will be taken to examine your bone, gum tissue, and spacing for the implant. 
  2. Under local anesthesia, the implant will be surgically placed into your jaw bone. We will then give the implant time to heal, which varies per patient.
  3. A permanent tooth will be placed in the implant spot, creating a durable and natural smile. Your implant should feel comfortable and operate as any other natural tooth would.

Post-treatment, you will be sent home with care instructions. Just like any good dental health routine, proper oral hygiene, good eating habits, and yearly visits to your dentist will extend the life of your new implant.  

What Type Of Dental Implant Do I Need?

There are a variety of dental implant systems that may be considered for your treatment:

  • Single Dental Implants
  • All-on-4® Dental Implants
  • Implant-Retained Dentures

Single Dental Implants

A single tooth implant is used to replace a specific missing tooth. Your single dental implant will be contoured and colored to blend in with the rest of your smile.

All-on-4® Dental Implants

Do you require a complete mouth makeover? Are you fed up with your detachable dentures? All-On-4 implant dentures are a long-term option that provides patients with a complete set of natural-looking teeth on the same day as their treatment!

Our dentists use dental implants to attach dentures with hybrid dental implants permanently. This could be the tooth replacement answer for you if you've lost a lot of teeth and are worried about the cost of traditional full-mouth dental implants.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Implant-retained dentures are partial or complete dentures attached to dental implants for a more secure and healthy fit. The ultra-snug fit of implant-retained dentures supports healthy bone retention, making them a healthier alternative to regular dentures. They are detachable and require daily care, just like traditional dentures.
