Dental Implants

We offer dental implants to patients who are missing teeth. Dental implants are an effective, modern treatment to replace missing teeth because they replace both the tooth and its root. When in place, a dental implant can restore stability, strength, and support to both the jaw and mouth.

Dental implants are an effective solution that can:

  • Replace missing teeth without harming adjacent teeth
  • Resolve bite problems and joint pain
  • Restore your ability to speak, chew, and digest
  • Enhance the facial tissues and avoid loss of facial volume
  • Lend support, comfort, and security to a denture or bridge
  • Restore the natural beauty of your smile

Procedure

Receiving your dental implant will require multiple visits to our Del Rio, TX dental practice over several months.The implant procedure begins with a general and oral health evaluation. We will then take a digital cone beam scan of your head. This will give us a 3-D image of your jaw, using the Galileos Cone Beam imaging system which will allow Dr. Taylor to evaluate not only the height of bone available, but the thickness and density of the jaw bone. The implant placement will be planned for optimal bone and restorative location and a guide stint will be fabricated based upon that plan. The guide allows Dr. Taylor to place the implant precisely, most times without the need for sutures. Guided implant placement makes the procedure extremely safe and predictable and with less discomfort than traditional implant therapy.

The titanium dental implant is allowed to heal for 6-8 weeks where the bone and the implant will integrate to create a stable foundation for the implant restoration. This could be a crown, bridge, or denture. We will place your implant for optimal function and aesthetics so you can enjoy the benefits of a beautiful, complete smile once again. Dental implants are an effective and comfortable option for many patients. We invite you to contact our office today to schedule your dental implant consultation.
