Why Dental Implants Change Lives for the Better
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 also weaken over time. If you have periodontitis, your gums may recede, allowing bacteria to affect the roots of your teeth, causing tooth sensitivity, tooth damage, and even loss of teeth. Any of these may affect your looks, your smile, and your self-esteem.
Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are 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 the placement and maintenance of dental implants. Because of Dr. Tredinick’s exceptional level of success and patient satisfaction, she is a highly recommended periodontist for patients in and around the Lake Jackson area.

The first part of the implant procedure is to replace decaying or missing teeth with a tiny titanium implant. These implants are placed into your jawbone to provide stability similar to actual tooth roots. Afterward, a dental crown or dentures are placed on the implant to restore your smile and allow you to chew.
With the All-on-4 procedure, only four implant posts are needed on the top and four on the bottom to restore your full smile. Due to the titanium post’s strength and bone fusing ability, you will be able to eat your favorite foods and chew normally again.
To restore your smile to its full health and beauty, a complete dental rehabilitation (smile makeover) may be performed. With this procedure, all of your teeth will be repaired or replaced. This brings your winning smile back while also improving your jaw’s function and appearance.
An option for patients undergoing a dental implant procedure. With teeth in a day, Dr. Tredinick will remove decaying teeth and replace them or missing teeth with titanium dental implant posts. Then, the doctor will place temporary, yet functional teeth which can be used and enjoyed immediately.
