Dental Implants in Magnolia and Houston, TX
If you or someone you love is living with missing teeth, then you know that it can take the joy out of the everyday things we love. But did you know that missing teeth can have negative effects on your health, too? Healthy teeth are important for a strong, healthy jaw, and when a tooth is removed because of damage or decay, the underlying bone can deteriorate and shrink. The empty space left by missing teeth can also cause surrounding healthy teeth to shift, resulting in a misaligned bite and crooked teeth.
We can help restore your smile and keep your mouth healthy thanks to dental implants. Replacing your missing teeth will help you eat your favorite foods with ease, talk and smile with confidence, and enjoy a healthy smile for years to come!

What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. Implants are useful in denture stabilization, and they can also be used in conjunction with crowns, bridges, and in single-tooth replacements.
Advancements in implant technology have made dental implants the preferred method of replacing one or multiple missing teeth. They offer patients a number of benefits:
- Look, feel, and function like natural teeth
- Longer-lasting than removable dentures
- Can last a lifetime with proper care
Dental Implants Are Restorative Options For:
- Single-tooth replacement: One missing tooth is replaced with a single implant and topped with a porcelain crown.
- Multiple-tooth replacement: Using a “fixed bridge,” implants are permanently placed in the jaw and connected to a stable bridge (a series of crowns).
- Full arch replacement: Also called “full mouth restorations,” this is a permanent, long-lasting, and functional alternative to removable dentures for people who are missing most or all of their teeth. We can also fit you with a removable overdenture that affixes to implants for a secure fit.
Am I a Good Dental Implants Candidate?
Patients suffering from advanced tooth decay, root canal failure, trauma to the mouth, or just extreme wear and tear on teeth can benefit from this revolutionary treatment. However, there are still some things to consider before you decide on dental implants. For example, implants are most successful after adolescence, when the teeth and jawbone are fully developed. Additionally, the implant procedure can be more complicated for individuals with gum disease, uncontrolled diabetes, immune deficiencies, and for patients who smoke. To ensure that you get the treatment that’s right for you, keep our team up-to-date on your entire medical history and dental habits.
