Discussing Why Dental Implant Placement Experience Matter?

Long-Lasting, Life-Changing Dental Implants

Dental implants are an option to replace missing teeth and provide a fixed solution to removable dentures. Dental implants are natural-looking replacement teeth that are fixed in the jaw. Dr. Holland offers Dental Implants for patients across the Katy, Richmond, Sugar Land, TX and the surrounding areas to fix and enhance smiles!

Implant treatment provides an option to correct the most troublesome cases associated with missing teeth and ill-fitting dentures.An implant is an artificial tooth made of titanium. It is surgically placed into the jawbone to support tooth-replacement structures such as crowns, bridges and dentures. While the implant mimics the root of the tooth, the replacement structure looks and feels just like a natural tooth, providing patients with a permanent solution that replicates the fit and feel of natural teeth.

Why should I get dental implants?

At this time dental implants provide the best option for replacement of one or more teeth. They look and feel the most natural out of the tooth-replacement options and allow for adequate cleaning. In cases where many teeth are missing, they also prevent the jaw bone from deteriorating over time

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Implants in Katy, TX?

Dental implants in Katy, TX have many benefits over other tooth-replacement methods.

Enhanced Esthetics

Dental Implants are placed within the gums. The crowns that are attached to them emerge in a manner similar to a natural tooth. This offers a more realistic and natural look compared to other alternatives.

Reduction Of Bone Loss

When a tooth is lost, the supporting bone structure gradually recedes over time. Dental implants integrate with the jawbone and stimulate its preservation, allowing the bone to stay healthy and intact while maintaining natural facial contours and appearance.

Preservation Of Adjacent Teeth

Other methods like fixed bridges must be anchored to adjacent teeth, unnecessarily sacrificing their quality and health. Dental implants in Katy are independent and do not rely on the support of other teeth, thus providing the ability to preserve the good teeth.

Easier Eating

As the jawbone shrinks, chewing efficiency is reduced, making it difficult to eat certain foods. Dental implants in Katy can restore chewing efficiency comparable to that of natural teeth, allowing patients to eat their favorite foods with confidence and without discomfort.

Your dental implant treatment at Advanced Periodontics and Implants of Katy is personalized to your specific oral health needs and smile goals.

What to Expect During The Dental Implant Surgery?

All treatment begins with a thorough exam and consultation. Typically, the process can take from 3 to 6 months. In some cases, the process may take longer because additional treatments, such as bone grafting, may be required to build up the bone so it can support an implant. The procedure and time frame depends on several factors:

Our Smile Transformation Process

Dental implant restorations usually take place over a few appointments and involve several steps:

Step 1: Personalized Consultation

Dr. Holland will assess the implant site to ensure proper implant positioning. One or more dental implants are precisely placed into the jawbone to mirror the location of the root of the missing natural tooth.

Step 2: Precise Dental Implant Placement

After appropriate healing has taken place to allow for the implant to fuse within the bone, impressions of the teeth and bite are taken to custom-fabricate a connector post or abutment, and crown.

Step 3: Final Restorations and New Beginnings

The abutment and crown are attached to the implant, completing the process. Some patients may experience minor soreness after the dental implant procedure which can be treated with over-the-counter medication.

Dental Implant FAQs

Depending on the number of implants and other procedures involved, it can range from a few minutes to a few hours. A straightforward single implant can take 15-20 minutes.
During the procedure, you will not feel anything. Because it is a surgical procedure, sometimes there can be some discomfort afterward that can be managed with over-the-counter medications like Advil, Motrin, Tylenol. Many people do not have to take medications afterward.

For most implant procedures, the implant needs to heal for 3-6 months prior to a crown or prosthesis. There is a technique of placing four or more implants and having a denture loaded on the implants the same day. This technique is reserved only for patients who have no remaining teeth in an arch. The implants and dentures counterbalance each other while the implants are healing, which allows for immediate loading.

Most implants last for decades, but there are always exceptions. We minimize the risks by using the latest predictable techniques and technology and by using the best materials.

The cost can range anywhere from $4000+, which includes the implant, abutment, and crown. Sometimes additional procedures like bone grafts, membranes, sinus lifts, etc. have to be performed, which adds cost. During the consultation we are very transparent in the pricing and why certain procedures are necessary or not.

There are general dentists that offer discounts who may only have online or weekend CE training for dental implants. They may or may not use the best materials. Our question to patients is: “Would you go to a Family Practice Physician to have knee surgery?” The answer is always NO because, instead, you would go to an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in knee surgery. There are also corporate clinics who may have a specialist come in once a month to do implants, but if something happens they are not there to follow-up until a month later.

One thing we pride ourselves on is experience, expertise, and integrity. We use the best materials from the most reputable companies who have extensive research backing their products. We SPECIALIZE in and have done thousands of implants and know how to treat different cases. We have had extensive training in the field of implants from the surgical portion to the restorative portion. We treat our patients like family and care for their needs around the clock.

If you’re grinding or clenching your teeth, have worn-down teeth, or frequently experience jaw pain you may have temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. This can occur for a number of reasons from malocclusion (bad bite), unhealthy oral habits, as well as jaw joint problems. An occlusal adjustment or custom mouthguard may be all you need to restore proper balance, relieve your pain, and maintain your oral health.
