Dental Implants in Spring, TX

Dental Implants in Spring, TX

We place hundreds of implants at Paul Graf DDS each year. In fact, thousands of dental implants are inserted annually in the U.S. to replace lost teeth. In most cases, patients are missing teeth due to severe decay, dental trauma, or a genetic abnormality. Some people are born without certain teeth. Fortunately, dental implants are a safe and permanent solution to tooth loss.

Dental Implants in Spring

When you have individuals have tooth loss, it means they are missing both the root and the tooth crown. Implant restorations are titanium posts that serve as replacement dental roots for missing teeth. Dental implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone. Then, over time they are able to heal and fuse with the natural bone.  The last step is for your dentist to create a custom crown and attach it to the post. The dental crown then serves as a replacement tooth, completing the restoration.

A dental implant restoration is made to match the appearance of a natural tooth. Unlike a dental crown, there is no need to grind down abutment teeth to restore your smile. Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing the deterioration that results from a tooth root missing.

How Implants Are Placed

An oral surgeon will perform the implant procedure. The surgery is done under local anesthesia, laughing gas, or intravenous sedation. A surgeon will work with Dr. Graf to devise your individualized treatment plan. The goal is to replace the missing tooth or teeth, and rebuild your natural-looking, beautiful smile.

For many patients, a temporary prosthetic can be placed over the implant immediately after it is inserted. If you are missing an entire mouth full of teeth, we offer a variety of tooth replacement options at Paul Graf DDS.
