Houston Dental Oasis stands out due to its experienced dental professionals, state-of-the-art technology, and a patient-centered approach that prioritizes comfort and results.

Understanding Dental Implants

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gum line. This post serves as a substitute for the tooth root, providing a strong and durable foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

The implant integrates with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration, which provides stable support for artificial teeth, allowing them to feel and function like natural teeth.

The Dental Implant Process

Initial Consultation

The journey to restoring your smile begins with a detailed consultation at Houston Dental Oasis, where dental professionals assess your oral health and discuss your expectations.

Implant Placement Procedure

The procedure involves placing the titanium implant post into the jawbone, followed by a healing period during which the implant integrates with the bone.

Healing and Osseointegration

This critical phase involves waiting for the bone to grow around the implant, securing it firmly in place—a process that can take several months.

Types of Dental Implants

Endosteal Implants

These are the most common type of implants, placed directly into the jawbone and typically shaped like small screws.

Subperiosteal Implants

Placed under the gum but above the jawbone, these are used for patients who do not have enough healthy natural jawbone and cannot, or do not want to, undergo a bone augmentation procedure to rebuild it.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Longevity and Durability

Dental implants are designed to be a long-lasting solution for tooth loss, with the potential to last a lifetime with proper care.

Improved Oral Health and Functionality

Unlike traditional bridgework, dental implants do not require adjacent teeth for support. This preservation of natural tooth tissue leads to improved long-term oral health.

Ideal Candidates for Dental Implants

Who Can Get Dental Implants?

Most adults with sufficient bone density and good oral health are candidates for implants, though certain medical conditions may necessitate additional evaluation.

Conditions That Dental Implants Can Address

Implants are an excellent solution for individuals who have lost one or more teeth due to injury, disease, or decay.

Dental Implant Care and Maintenance

Caring for implants is similar to caring for natural teeth, involving brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups.
