Dental Implant Services in Greater Lake Jackson
Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function just like natural teeth.
At Coastal Periodontics, Dr. Tredinick and her team offer many types of dental implant procedures to restore your health – and your smile. On your first visit, Dr. Tredinick will perform an oral assessment and determine the best type of implants for you. Any procedure she recommends will be discussed with you and your general dentist.
How Dental Implants Can Change Your Life
As you age, your teeth, mouth and gums suffer normal wear and tear. Sometimes, due to certain hereditary traits or your dental hygiene habits, your teeth can weaken over time. If you have periodontitis, your gums may recede, allowing bacteria to attack the roots of your teeth, causing tooth sensitivity, tooth damage and even tooth loss. Any of these may affect your looks, smile and self-confidence.
Dental implants are tiny titanium posts placed in your jaw to serve as a replacement root for teeth that have been removed or are missing. These posts serve as the foundation for the dental implant or dentures and are the most durable and most natural-looking tooth replacement option because titanium can fuse to living bone. This allows the post to function as a part of your jaw, providing a lasting base for your dental crown or dentures. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.
As a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, Dr. Tredinick has received advanced training and is highly experienced in placing and maintaining dental implants. Because of her exceptional level of success and patient satisfaction, she is a highly recommended periodontist for patients around the Lake Jackson area.
Improve Your Health and Smile with Dental Implant Services
The first part of the dental implant procedure is to replace decaying or missing teeth with a tiny titanium implant. The doctor places implants into your jawbone to provide stability similar to actual tooth roots. Afterward, she places a dental crown or dentures on the implant to restore your smile and allow you to eat your favorite foods.
With all-on-four dentures, only four implant posts are needed to restore your full smile. Due to the titanium posts’ strength and bone fusing ability, you can start enjoying your favorite foods again.
We may perform a complete dental rehabilitation (smile makeover) to restore your health and confidence. With this procedure, the doctor will repair or replace all of your teeth. This brings your winning smile back while also allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods without pain.
