Dental Implants in Nederland, TX
Dentists agree that for healthy patients, dental implants remain the best tooth replacement option available. When tooth loss occurs, you may begin to lose bone because your jawbone and teeth have a dependent relationship, relying on one another for stability. Without a dental implant, your bone could resorb and affect the health of your jaw, your remaining teeth, and even your appearance.
When you choose dental implants to replace your missing teeth, they can slow down or stop the process of bone loss. This helps to maintain your facial and dental structure and supports your remaining teeth through bone retention.
At Nederland Family Dental, our dentist is highly skilled at implant placement. We place implants right in our dental office for your convenience, and we have a high success rate as well as exceptional patient satisfaction. Our dentist restores your dental implants because we know our patients appreciate having treatment from someone they know and trust.
Our dentist has received specialized training in implant placement procedures and stay on top of the latest developments in order to provide you with the most up-to-date treatments.
Before we place your implants, we need to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. While most patients qualify for implants, some medical conditions and medications make these procedures more difficult and risky.
Once you get a good bill of health, G. Whitney Gomez DDS will make sure you are numb and surgically place your implant into your jawbone.
After your implant heals, we will prepare it for a dental crown. Your implant crown is a custom creation we co-design with a highly skilled dental lab. Everything from the size and shape to the color will match your natural teeth beautifully.
Once we place your crown, your dental implant is ready for action. You can chew and talk normally, and with the proper care and preventative routine, you can expect your dental implant to last for many years.
Single dental implants are easy to keep clean. You simply brush and floss them normally. For implant bridges, we may need to talk about some special products that make flossing easier, but because your implants are stable and permanent, you take care of them much like you would care for your own teeth. Routine professional cleanings and exams will ensure your implant health.
If you need dentures, but want extra stability and to help reduce bone loss, we offer implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures firmly hold your dentures in place so you can confidently eat and speak without concern.
