Secure Your New Smile With Dental Implants
Dental implants in Laredo, TXDr. Matthew Davenport on dental implants Read Transcript
A lot of patients come in asking, wanting to know what an implant is. They hear about it on TV or read about it in an article. It's a good option for someone that either is missing just one tooth that they recently lost, or lost a long time ago, and they want to fill that missing space. It's always good to fill missing space because teeth can shift. We want to be able to prevent those teeth from shifting, to keep the most functional bite that the patient can have. An implant, when we go in, a surgeon will place the implant into the patient's jaw and allow that to heal. Once that's ready and locked in place, we can restore that and put a crown to fill in that gap. The biggest benefit to that is that we're not messing with any of your adjacent teeth. It's the most conservative procedure that dentistry offers in replacing the missing tooth.
Dental implants are a secure, reliable, and aesthetically appealing way to replace your missing teeth. If you have lost teeth or have recently had teeth extracted, dental implants might be a good option for you. You can learn all about dental implants in Laredo, TX and our different implant options below. Please feel free to contact our team if you have any questions or concerns.

What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots that are inserted directly into your gums by a specialist. The implants are then allowed to heal for about four months before being loaded with a beautifully crafted restoration of some kind (see below for options). That’s what we do here at Davenport Dental Group. We will create a restoration for you that meets your specific needs and appearance requirements. Once the implant is placed and your restoration is loaded, you will be able to return to your normal life with a healthy, beautiful, and functional smile that you will be proud of!
Single-Tooth Dental Implants
Single dental implants are designed for use when just one tooth is missing. The process is as listed above: a single implant is placed and then loaded with a replacement crown. This is a great option because your replacement tooth will blend right in with the rest of your smile. It will also ensure that you do not lose bone tissue and that your other teeth stay securely in position.
Dental Implant-Supported Bridges
Implant-supported bridges are designed to replace a few of your natural teeth. They can be designed in a variety of ways to meet your needs. To learn more about bridges, please visit our service page.
Implant-secured dentures are simply removable dentures that have been secured into the mouth using dental implant. This is a great option for patients who want dentures, but also want the security that dental implants offer. You can find more information by visiting our page on denture options.
Are Dental lmplants Right For Me?
Dental implants are a great solution for those who have healthy jawbone tissue and want the highest level of security possible. However, dental implant may not be the best solution for you if you are on a tight budget and are looking for the most inexpensive solution. To find out for sure if dental implants are a viable option for your specific situation, please talk to our team. We will be happy to help you get the information you need.
