Missing teeth due to injury, age or disease can be more than an embarrassment or hindrance for people. In the past the only option that patients had was a bridge that, while effective in replacing the missing tooth or teeth, also led to additional concerns with the anchoring teeth. But dental implants are increasingly popular as they are the next best thing to your natural teeth.
Aesthetic Family Dentistry in Baytown, TX can help explore dental implants. These are single artificial teeth that are permanently placed in your mouth. They look the same or even better than your missing tooth or teeth!
Dr. Dean Hutto believes in providing his patients with top service and top professionals. He has teamed with the best and most reputable oral surgeons and periodontists to provide you with a multidisciplinary approach to your treatment.
The first step will include a visit to Aesthetic Family Dentistry in Baytown, TX. At this time Dr. Hutto will give you a full dental exam, including verifying that the underlying bone can support the implant. If you are a good candidate, and most patients are, you will then be scheduled to have oral surgery to implant a small titanium post. This post is the anchor for your new porcelain tooth, or crown, that will match your missing tooth and blend perfectly with your existing teeth.
In a short period of time the titanium post will fuse with your jawbone, creating a solid base that will support the crown. Your next visit will include the restoration, where our lab will create a customized crown that will be permanently placed on the post.
The result will be a strong, durable and natural looking tooth. Since an implant is held in place with a post, it is strong, solid and will allow you to eat the foods you love without the concerns that people have with partials or bridges.
