Dental Implants in the Woodlands, TX by Dr. Gabriel L. Polo, DDS
The dental office of Gabriel L. Polo, DDS offers patients in The Woodlands comprehensive dental services to completely restore their smiles. The dental implants placed in our office provide a solution to missing teeth that award life-long results for natural-looking smiles patients feel confident with.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants utilize titanium roots and ceramic or other tooth-colored prosthetics to imitate real teeth. The appearance of dental implants is nearly identical to natural teeth, producing ideal results. Furthermore, dental implants bolster the jawbone, preventing accelerated bone deterioration that is normally associated with missing teeth.
Dental implants can be made to replace a single tooth, a series of teeth, or an entire arch of teeth. While traditional dentures can provide an aesthetic solution, dental implants are a comprehensive replacement to natural teeth that offer thorough restoration for functionality and appearance. Implants work just like your original teeth—or maybe even better.
Benefits of Dental Implants
When patients lose their teeth, the jawbone begins to deteriorate over time, causing a decline in strength and leading to facial collapse. Missing teeth make it difficult to speak and eat normally, resulting in many complications throughout the patient’s lifetime. Dental implants provide a slew of solutions to many dental problems associated with edentulism. These benefits include:
- Bolstering the jawbone
- Increasing jaw-bite strength
- Preventing accelerated jawbone deterioration
- Improving appearance
- Better overall quality of life
Dental Implants from Dr. Polo
Our office uses dental implants crafted by Nobel Biocare, a company well-renowned for producing quality, durable prosthetics.
While our office offers dental implants to replace a single tooth or a series of teeth, we also provide edentulous patients with treatments to completely restore their entire smiles. All-on-4 provides new teeth in one day, the quickest available service to entirely restore whole arches of missing teeth.
Dr. Gabriel Polo completes the entire dental implant process, from the consultation to the implant surgery, in his office, utilizing cutting-edge dental equipment to our patients’ benefit. The technology in our office allows us to capture digital x-rays and create images patients can use to preview their treated smiles. This state-of-the-art treatment allows greater precision and accuracy when placing dental implants.
While this procedure can take anywhere between three to six months for complete healing and integration, dental implants are a lifetime investment. A crown may require a replacement after several years of usage; however, the structure of the dental implants can remain intact throughout the entirety of an individual’s lifetime.
Our dental implant treatments are one of our most efficient treatment options—most of our patients return to work immediately afterwards.
