At Smiles by Garcia, patients in and around the community of Austin, TX who have lost natural teeth are often able to find a solution with our staff. Dr. Arturo Garcia and his team are available to help patients learn about the options available to them for replacing missing teeth and deciding which ones are most appropriate for their specific situation. In many cases, patients interested in replacing a single tooth will find that dental implants are a highly desirable option.
What is a dental implant?
Dr. Arturo Garcia describes a dental implant as a tooth root replacement that can restore the function, appearance, and health of the smile after tooth loss or extraction. Dental implants are made of titanium metal which is biocompatible with the body. Once placed, it can stimulate the growth of jaw bone via osseointegration, where the bone wraps around the new implant to hold it firmly in place. Our professionals encourage patients to consider dental implants whenever possible because they are long-lasting and effective in maintaining the function of the teeth.
Who is a candidate?
The best patients for the placement of dental implants are those who have sufficient bone structure that can support the implant once it is put in place during oral surgery. Once dental implants are in place, they are known to last a lifetime when patients properly care for their smile, avoiding the development of common problems such as tooth decay and periodontal disease. These are issues that can impact the health of the smile as well as restorations such as dental implants after they have been installed.
