Implant Restorations in Houston, TX
Dental implants are permanent replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or all of the teeth. The dental implant is a screw made of titanium and is surgically placed in the bone at the site of the missing tooth. This replaces the tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. This surgical procedure will be conducted by a trusted oral surgeon that Dr. Walding specifically refers to with confidence. A healing period of a few months is then required to allow the implant to integrate with the surrounding bone. Following this healing period, Dr. Walding will place the dental implant restoration (the part that looks like a tooth) on top of the implant post.
Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function, and appearance. A dental implant is a great option for restoring your smile because the implant is designed to look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth, and with proper care, it can last a lifetime.
