Our teeth are supposed to be our lifetime partners, but sometimes injuries occur or harmful health conditions develop and we lose our teeth. If you have lost a permanent tooth, Dr. Heather H. Bobb is delighted to help you with dental implants!
Dental implants in Dripping Springs, Texas, are fixed products that provide permanent and everlasting results. They replace your tooth and its root, and they give you the functionality you need in an oral cavity. They are also convenient and stable options that make eating, talking, drinking, and smiling much easier! If you are interested in improving your appearance, speech, comfort, self-esteem, and oral health, dental implants are for you.
However, the process involved in placing the implant does require some time to complete. It will first begin with your dentist placing the implant post into the bone socket of your missing tooth. The bone will then need to heal around the post to secure it into place, which could take up to 12 weeks. Next, your dentist will attach a connector post, which is the section of the implant that will support your replacement tooth. After your dentist makes impressions of your tooth and sends them to a lab, your tooth will be created and placed.
