Dental Implant Placement In Sugar Land

Whether a tooth must be removed or is already missing, dental implant placement is the best restorative solution to ensure the long-term health of the mouth. The fear of losing a tooth and living with an incomplete smile can prevent patients from taking care of a dental problem. Dr. LT Johnson provides patients with a variety of restorative solutions using dental implants, which not only eliminate tooth pain, but restore a beautiful new smile that patients will be proud to show off.

The Advantages Of Dental Implants

  • They work and look as natural teeth.
  • Helps to preserve facial structure.
  • Aids in chewing and reducing malnutrition.
  • Easy to clean and care for.
  • Used to restore and create beautiful smiles.
  • Increase self-esteem.
  • May last several years and even an entire life with proper care.

Types of Dental Extraction

After performing an evaluation to determine if you’re eligible for a dental implant, Dr. LT Johnson will proceed as follows:

  1. Development an individualized treatment plan.
  2. Place the tooth root implant, which is a small post made of titanium, into the bone socket of the missing tooth.
  3. Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a small connector post – called an abutment – is attached to the post to hold the new tooth.
  4. Dr. Johnson will make impressions of your teeth, and creates a model of your bite
  5. A replacement tooth, also called crown, is then attached to the abutment.
Local anesthesia can be used during the procedure, and most patients report that implants involve less pain than a tooth extraction.

Post Dental Implant Placement

After the dental implant placement, the healing process can take from six to 12 weeks. Because the implant is secured within the jawbone, the replacement teeth look, feel, and function just like your own natural teeth. Dental implants need the same care as real teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups.
