Dental Implants in Houston


Understanding Dental Implants


What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a permanent tooth restoration, built to replace the original root and tooth structure of a missing tooth.

Implants are composed of two primary parts. The “post” functions as an artificial root. It is implanted into the gumline, and bonds to the surrounding gum and jaw tissue.

After the post has healed, a dental crown that’s shaped just like your missing tooth is permanently bonded to the post’s abutment.

This tooth is indistinguishable from a natural tooth, providing an attractive and permanent restoration for your missing tooth.

The Dental Implant Process

Placing a dental implant usually takes two appointments at EaDo Family Dental. Dr. Bianca Williams has been certified by the International Academy of Dental Implantology and is recognized as one of the best choices for a dental implant in Houston. After a consultation to confirm that you are a good candidate for a dental implant, Dr. William will place the post.

At your first appointment, your mouth is cleaned and a small incision is made in the gum tissue. The post is inserted into the gum and jaw and then the area issutured. Your mouth is given ample time to heal from the oral surgery. Healing times vary between patients. 

Once the post has fused to the bone and gums, it acts as a tooth root for your crown. Images, scans, and molds of your mouth are taken and sent to a lab where your custom crown is crafted. Once it’s complete, Dr. Ma or Dr. Williams will attach the new crown to the post via theabutment. They can make small adjusts to the crown to ensure the fit is perfect, giving you a comfortable permanent solution to your missing tooth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants have a number of benefits that make them a great alternative to dentures and dental bridges.

Natural look and feel – A dental implant looks and feels just like a natural tooth. You won’t notice any difference when drinking, chewing, speaking, or smiling, and neither will anyone else!

No special care required – Brush and floss normally, and see EaDo Family Dental for a regular 6-month exam and teeth cleaning. That’s it!

Lasts a lifetime – Most dental implants last 30+ years, and it’s quite common for a dental implant to last you for the rest of your life.
