Dental Implants Improve Helotes & Alamo Ranch Smiles
Tooth loss can be a devastating blow, not only for your oral health but also your overall quality of life and sense of self-confidence. Thankfully, patients in need can find several reconstructive solutions here at Alamo Springs Dental in Helotes, TX. While everyone has different, unique needs and preferences, Dr. Aiyana Anderson and Dr. Michele Moreno typically recommend dental implants as the ideal treatment solution for patients who want to regain a whole, healthy smile. This revolutionary service can virtually turn the clock back on your smile, giving you teeth that feel natural, look beautiful, and can last for many years to come.
Dental Implant Process
The secret behind the success of dental implants is that they replicate the entire structure of the tooth, not just the crown that becomes visible when you smile. Once we’ve determined that you’re a good candidate for this procedure, our doctors will be happy to recommend you to a trusted specialist in the area who can perform the surgical placement of these new “tooth roots.”
Following this procedure, your mouth will need time to heal, and the implants will slowly form a sturdy bond with your jawbone and gum tissue. Finally, you’ll return to Alamo Springs Dental so that we can design and create a brand-new restoration to fit on top, completing your new and improved smile.
Other Tooth Replacement Options
Typically, our Helotes team will provide a personalized, all-ceramic dental crown to restore simple implants. However, there may be cases of significant tooth loss where this option becomes prohibitive in cost and time. Thankfully, Dr. Moreno and Dr. Anderson offer implant-retained overdentures and partial prosthetics as an alternative. These appliances are designed to attach to the implants placed within your mouth, creating a sturdy and confident fit you can feel great about.
