Single-Tooth Dental Implants
Returning Smiles protocol provides a customized approach to restoring your smile through implant dentistry in as little as one day.
If you have lost one tooth, a dental implant restored with a dental crown may be for you. These restorations replace both the root and the crown of your tooth to support your jawbone and give you a fully functional smile. Call [pracetice_name] at 281-446-4700 to schedule your consultation with our dentists, Drs. Umansky, Nikmard and Elmore, and discover if you are a candidate for dental implants.
Dental implants are lasting, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or complete arches of teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. It replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post.
Following this healing period, our dentists will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom-made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function and appearance. A dental implant is a great option for returning smiles because the implant is designed to look, function and feel just like your natural teeth, and with proper care, it can last a lifetime.
