Complete Implant Dentistry for Pasadena, TX
If you need to replace one or more missing teeth, you could consider a traditional prosthetic—like a crown and bridge or a removable denture—or you could consider a solution that can deliver superior results. The specific solution we’re talking about here is dental implants. Implant-supported prosthetics have a beautiful, natural appearance that will satisfy on an aesthetic level, but more than that, they have a structure that resembles the structure of a natural tooth. Because of this, patients who choose dental implants over a more traditional solution can enjoy more advanced and more satisfying results.
The first phase of treatment with dental implants involves the placement of one or more metal implants. A single implant will support a single replacement tooth while multiple implants will support a partial denture or a full denture.
Because your implant(s) must be placed via a surgical procedure, most dental offices have to refer their patients to a specialist. But at Sierra Smiles, we offer full-service implant care. That means that instead of sending you to another practice to have your implant(s) placed, you can receive the help you need in one place, surrounded by a team you already know and trust.
After your surgery, we’ll give your mouth time to heal. As this happens, a process known as osseointegration will occur. During the osseointegration process, your implant(s) and the bone tissue in your jaw will fuse together, forming a strong, natural bond.
The restoration phase is the second phase of care, and it culminates in Dr. Sierra attaching your custom-made restoration to your implant(s). Once the full treatment process is complete, you can look forward to enjoying an unrestricted diet and smiling with confidence again. With proper care, your implant-supported prosthetic will last for years to come, if not the rest of your life.
