Your Source for Dental Implants in College Station
If you are seeking to replace one or more missing teeth, there are several options for you, from bridges to adhesive based dentures. However, nothing compares to the gold standard of dental implants.
At Aggieland Dental, whether you need a single tooth replacement or full-mouth restoration, we place and restore dental implants. This allows you the convenience of seeing the same provider from placement to prosthetic, and enables consistent cooperation between you and your dentist.
What Will The Procedure be Like?
For our College Station dentists, education is our highest priority. We want you to stay in control of your care and make the best decisions possible. We will illustrate the procedure for you with a 3D model of what you can expect from your final result.
After the initial placement of the titanium implant post, it is allowed to heal for a number of months, ensuring that it is fully integrated into the bone. Once the placement site has healed and the implant is stable enough to act as the base for your restoration, an impression will be made for your prosthetic. A temporary is worn until the permanent restoration has been fabricated.
Patients will be able to function relatively normally only a few days after implant placement. However, in order to protect the integrity of the implant post, they are encouraged to avoid excessively fibrous or crunchy foods.
Kinds of Implant Restoration
Implants can be used to support a number of dental prosthetics. Aside from the implant supported crowns of single-tooth restorations, two or more posts can be placed to support more comprehensive restorations. Implants can be used to support:
- Partial Dentures
- Full Dentures
These options provide enhanced bite function and the natural aesthetic of healthy teeth.
Is a Dental Implant Right for You?
Dental implants are second only to the natural teeth, and are the ideal restoration for patients missing any number of teeth. We evaluate our patients on a case by case basis, looking at gum health and tooth alignment in addition to your overall health. Qualifying patients even preserve the long term health of their jaw with dental implant placement.
For these reasons, Drs. Ken and Roxane Spence prefer to use implants when possible. Should you require additional treatment prior to the placement of your dental implant, we work to help you qualify.
