What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are sophisticated dental prosthetics that replace missing teeth using a durable and natural replacement. Made of a titanium post, an abutment, and a crown, an implant recreates the entirety of a tooth with the post serving as the tooth’s root. The post is surgically implanted into the jaw to provide a stable foundation for the prosthetic tooth and prevents bone loss over time. Because implants are fixed in place, they create a realistic and functional smile.

Types of Dental Implants

Dental implants are designed to mimic the function and look of a natural tooth. Made up of a dental crown and a biocompatible post, dental implants are surgically implanted into the jawbone, providing the same support and stability that you would get with a healthy natural tooth.

At Round Rock Oral Surgery & Dental Implants, we offer multiple types of dental implant options to bring you closer to optimal oral health. Dr. Weber will work with you to discuss your needs and determine which dental implant is best for you.

  • Single Implants: A single dental implant consists of an implant post, a connector called an abutment, and a custom-made crown. A single implant replaces a missing tooth. The implant post is surgically anchored into the jawbone. Attached is an abutment and a crown that matches your surrounding teeth. These implants are a durable and natural-looking option to restore aesthetics and function to your smile.
  • Multiple Implants: To replace multiple missing teeth, these dental implants may consist of a dental bridge or partial denture to replace missing teeth. Multiple implants can restore chewing ability and prevent bone loss by providing a secure solution for those missing teeth.
  • Full-Arch Restoration: For those who need to replace all of their teeth in their upper or lower jaw, a full-arch restoration provides a permanent and comfortable solution that eliminates the need for removable dentures. Using strategically placed dental plants, a full-arch prosthetic is secured to the jaw, providing patients with a beautiful and functional smile.
  • Zygomatic Implants: Zygomatic implants offer a solution for patients with severe jaw bone loss. Rather than being placed directly into the jawbone, the implants are anchored in the cheekbone, avoiding the need for a bone graft while still providing a stable foundation for a dental prosthetic.
  • Zirconia Implants: Offering a metal-free alternative to traditional titanium implants, a zirconia dental implant is crafted from biocompatible zirconia ceramic and offers durability along with life-like aesthetics and can be used for single or multiple tooth replacements.

Dental Implant Surgery

At Round Rock Oral Surgery & Dental Implants, we’re dedicated to making sure that your dental implant experience is as straightforward and seamless as possible. We understand the trust you place in us for your oral surgery needs. That’s why we’re committed to providing the most comfortable and efficient experience possible.

Before any procedure, you’ll meet with Dr. Weber for a consultation. At this appointment, he will take 3D scans, perform an oral exam, assess jaw bone density to better understand your needs. He will discuss potential treatment options and discuss what will best address your concerns and help you reach your oral health goals.

Should you opt for dental implants, you’ll receive detailed instructions to follow before your procedure. To avoid any complications, you may be asked to avoid eating or drinking for a period prior to the procedure. We may request that you arrange for someone to take you home after your surgery.

After the anesthesia takes effect, Dr. Weber will create an incision in your gum tissue, giving him access to the jawbone. Then, he will drill a hole in the bone to prepare it for the dental implant post, creating an artificial tooth root.

Following this placement, you may receive a temporary crown or a healing cap to protect the implant as it heals. Because the implant will be fusing with the jawbone, this process, known as osseointegration, can take several months.

When the implant is fully fused and healed, you will return to have the final crown attached. The crown is custom-made to match the color, size, and shape of your teeth for the most natural-looking and seamless look possible.

Once your surgery is over, you will be given instructions on caring for your implant, maintaining good oral hygiene, and any dietary restrictions. Any discomfort or swelling can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication in tandem with the instructions we provide. If you have any questions about your recovery, please call our office.

Types of Anesthesia

We offer several forms of anesthesia to ensure your comfort.

Cost of Dental Implants

The cost of any oral surgery treatment is dependent on a variety of factors, all contingent upon the needs of each individual patient. The final cost will be determined by several factors including:

  • Anesthesia used.
  • The number and type of implant used.
  • The complexity of your case.
  • Your insurance coverage.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What distinguishes a flipper tooth from a dental implant?

A flipper tooth is a temporary, removable denture, typically used as an interim solution while waiting for a more permanent denture, like a dental implant. It is not as durable or stable as a dental implant as it is created from acrylic. A dental implant is a durable long-lasting replacement for missing teeth that is surgically inserted in the jawbone, replicating the functionality and appearance of a natural tooth.

2. Is it possible to develop gum disease with dental implants?

Yes, gum disease can occur with dental implants. Healthy habits—like proper oral hygiene and avoiding smoking— can prevent gum disease and ensure the success and longevity of dental implants.

3. What precautions should I take after my dental implant surgery?

Following your dental implant surgery, it is essential for you to adhere to the post-operative instructions you are provided with. Avoid hot liquids and foods, follow any dietary restrictions, minimize physical activity, and refrain from vigorous mouth rinsing so as to avoid disturbing the surgical site. We highly recommend abstaining from operating heavy machinery or driving if you are taking opioid pain medication.

4. How much does a dental implant cost in Round Rock, TX?

The cost of a dental implant is impacted by factors including your case’s complexity, number of implants, type of anesthesia used, and any insurance coverage. Contact our office for a consultation to get a better idea of how much dental implants will cost.
