Dental Implant Placement and Restorations in Victoria, TX
Dental Implants are a dependable solution to missing teeth. Because the implant mimics your tooth’s natural roots, your final restoration has a secure base to give patients an improved smile both aesthetically and functionally. Our Victoria implant dentist, Dr. Lisa Heinrich-Null offers comprehensive dental services that include placing the dental implant and restoring it with a natural looking prosthetic tooth or teeth. Dr. Null will work to build a strong foundation for your implant to give you a long-lasting beautiful smile.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are composed of three distinct parts – the prosthetic tooth root or implant, the abutment and the tooth replacement. Placed in-office by our very own Victoria implant dentist, the implant is left to fuse to the bone through a process called osseointegration which may take several weeks depending on your oral health. If necessary, Dr. Heinrich-Null will first prepare the area with a possible bone graft or sinus lift for precise fit and exact placement.
Once the area has healed and the implant has become stable within the bone, an abutment is attached to the implant which will then hold your replacement tooth, bridge or denture in place. Because the dental implant is a stand-alone tooth replacement, this restorative treatment has no effect on neighboring teeth.
As a patient-focused implant dentist in Victoria, TX, Dr. Heinrich-Null selects implant systems from tried and true companies like Straumann and will use a 2D digital panoramic camera throughout the process for an exceptional view of the targeted area.
