Dental Implants Services at Vivid Dental, Houston TX
Why dental implants surgery may be the right course of action for Houston TX area patients.
For patients who come into our office with a toothache, the first step your dental professional will take is to see if he or she can salvage the tooth through a root canal. We take pride in doing everything we can to maintain your mouth as is. However, there are instances when a tooth needs to be extracted for health reasons. This is no cause to worry, as we have the skills and technology to renovate your smile.
When one or more teeth are missing, there are a few different cosmetic treatments that your dentist can perform to restore your smile. For one or two missing teeth, bridges and crowns are usually performed. If there are more teeth missing, partial or complete dentures are made to not only restore your smile but to also allow patients to have functioning teeth for eating and speaking. Removable dentures though come with multiple cons. They are hard to clean, don’t always set properly, and bar you from eating certain foods. Plus they generally do not have the durability patients require. A more permanent solution for this fix takes the form of dental implants.
This treatment entails a surgical procedure in which a specialized dentist will drill a hole in your jaw bone, fix the implant in, and then place a crown on top so that it looks like a more natural tooth. Although this may sound scary, it supports the foundation for your jaw and teeth by fusing to the patient’s oral bone structure. Stabilization and a perfect fit means for a longer lasting resolution for your missing teeth. If you are still unsure whether dental implants may be right for you, we at Vivid Dental not only have the answers to your questions, but the accommodations to individualize treatment for each and every patient.
Implants can be a costly medical procedure, but we offer payment plans and work with insurance agencies so that patients do not have to sacrifice health care because of bills. Our staff believe that a beautiful and healthy smile should not be for just those who are financially endowed.
We do everything we can to educate our patients so they fully understand their options so call us today to setup an appointment.
Dental Implants at Vivid Dental explained by Dr. Monti Harpalani
Why would one get an implant?
Dental implants are for restoring missing teeth. If someone has got an extraction done or has a previous missing tooth, a dental implant can be the ideal solution.
What is the process of dental implants?
The dental surgeon will be placing the implant where the missing tooth was. Its almost is a threaded screw that is placed into the bone area of the missing tooth.
How long does it take for an implant to be restored?
The healing takes about 3-5 months. Once the bone area around the implant is sturdy enough, the tooth can be restored by placing a dental crown the same way how you would put a crown on a normal tooth.
What is the duration of a dental implant?
Once the restoration is done, the patient walks out with a natural-looking tooth. If maintained with proper hygiene, an implant can last for many years.”
