Dental Implants in The Woodlands, TX

Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth

At Bradshaw Periodontics, dental implants are recommended to replace your missing teeth. Titanium screws are placed in your jaw bone replacing the tooth root and becoming an anchor for new teeth. This titanium screw or dental implant receives different attachments for healing and restoring teeth or anchoring dentures.

Titanium is compatible with the human body and allows the posts to fuse with your bone, creating a solid bond replicating the relationship between your natural tooth root and bone. This fusing process, or osseointegration, will occur over the span of three to six months. Once complete, Dr. Bradshaw will communicate and coordinate with your restorative dentist to start the fabrication and or placement of the abutment for crowns or attachments for dentures.

Benefit of Visiting Us for Dental Implants

Dental implants have an added benefit not offered by any other replacement for missing teeth. The osseointegration between the implant and the bone serve to stimulate the bone at the site of the missing teeth, which prevents bone loss that would have otherwise occurred if no implant (or tooth root) was present.

Dental Implants vs Dentures

  • At our practice in The Woodlands, dental implants are fused with your bone and provide a stable, secure anchor for your crowns.
  • When performed at The Woodlands, dental implants consist of bio-compatible titanium, which is responsible for the high rate of success patients enjoy with dental implants.
  • At our practice in The Woodlands, dental implants are meant to last a lifetime.
  • Dental Implants, however, stop bone deterioration as a result of the osseointegration process. The titanium posts stimulate the jaw bone just as your natural tooth would.
  • At our practice in The Woodlands, dental implants are used to replace single, multiple, or all of your missing teeth.

  • Dentures are commonly held in place with adhesive and as such, are not considered stable or secure. The major complaint is that dentures slip or make clicking noises.
  • Dentures are generally made up of acrylic, metal, and plastic materials, which can be difficult on the gums.
  • Dentures, unfortunately, may need replacement because of age or progressive bone loss.
  • The bone loss that occurs at the site of missing teeth is not affected by dentures, because they sit on top of the gum line.
  • Dentures can only replace multiple or a full set of missing teeth.
