Implants Give You Back Your Biting Power

Teeth implants have been around in one form or another for hundreds of years, as humans have always looked for innovative ways to replace their missing teeth. Today’s implants are usually made from high-quality, medical-grade titanium. That’s because titanium chemically fuses with the bone in the jaw, becoming one with it as new bone material grows around the implant over the course of a few months. At our office, our dentists both place your implants and restore them with replacement teeth. This means you’ll get your entire treatment from our team, with no need to visit an outside doctor.

After this healing period, your new implants will be ready to support your replacement teeth. Your treatment will be designed based on your unique needs and wants. Below are some of the many options we have for implant-secured replacement teeth:

  • Single Implant With a Crown – Your dentist will place an implant where your tooth is missing, then secure a new crown on top to restore your bite and fill in your smile.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge – We’ll design a bridge to span the gap in your smile left by several missing teeth in a row. It will anchor in place using two or more implants.
  • Implant-Retained Dentures – For outstanding performance from your dentures, we’ll secure them to a set of dental implants using a socket-and-ball system.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures – These are our most comfortable and best-performing dentures. They anchor to implants using a sturdy metal bar.
  • All-on-4® – We can give you a full arch of beautiful replacement teeth using just four precisely placed implants. Leave our office with a beautiful, healthy smile.
  • All-on-6 – Instead of four implants per arch, we’ll use six implants to give your new teeth added stability.

When you need to get your missing teeth back, there’s no better way to do it than with Waco dental implants from Starr General Dentistry. Call us today at 254-401-0129 to make an appointment. Or you can schedule online if it’s more convenient.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are prosthetic replacements for the roots of missing teeth. Modern implants are typically titanium posts or screws that are placed into your jawbone. These act as anchors for your replacement teeth, whether dental crowns, bridges, or dentures. This makes those restorations stronger and more secure, so they function and feel like natural teeth.

What is the dental implant process?

The simple answer is that we assess the condition of your jaw to make sure it can support an implant or implants. If you are a good candidate, we place the implants painlessly with the help of local anesthesia and dental sedation. When you recover, we can attach your replacement teeth to your implants. With the All-on-4® procedure, you can get replacement teeth on the same day that you get your implants.

Which dental implant restorations are best?

It depends on how many teeth you need to replace and somewhat on your personal preferences. If you need to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth, then an implant-supported crown or implant-supported bridge is best. If you need to replace a full arch of teeth, we offer a variety of implant-secured dentures. We will answer any questions you have so you can pick the right option for you.
