Contact us today to schedule your next appointment and learn how our West Houston dental implants are right for you!


Streamlining the Dental Implant Process

One of the challenging aspects of getting implants is that not every dental office offers placement and restorations. Over the years, we've streamlined the entire dental implant process to improve the health and appearance of your smile while reducing how much your schedule is affected.

Dr. Nguyen will begin the process by conducting an extensive oral exam. Using technology like an iTero™ scanner, our dentist will look at the condition of your remaining teeth, gums, and jawbone to determine the best approach. We'll also take this time to explain your options and help you make informed decisions about your oral health. For example, if you have multiple teeth missing in a row, an implant-supported bridge can replace your teeth with fewer appointments than three implant-supported crowns.

Leveraging State-of-the-Art Technology

A hallmark of our dental practice is that we use state-of-the-art technology to help improve the efficiency and accuracy of placement. For example, we use CBCT scanners to create detailed images of your smile, including nerves, bones, and muscles. By precisely understanding your smile's various structures, we can place your dental implants while reducing the overall impact on your smile.

Our Quality Implant-Supported Restorations

We proudly provide many restorative options to meet your unique tooth replacement needs. No matter what restorative option you need, you can rest assured that we use high-quality materials for durability and a comfortable fit. Some of the implant-supported restorations we offer include:

  • Crowns: If you have a missing tooth that needs replacing, a crown may be perfect for you. An implant-supported crown replaces your tooth down to the root and helps stimulate your jawbone to prevent bone loss.
  • Bridges: Implant-supported bridges are an excellent option when you're missing up to three teeth in a row. Bridges can be placed anywhere in your smile and are relied on for their versatility.
  • Dentures: Dentures provide you with full mouth tooth dental implants. By using multiple implant posts, our team can secure your dentures in place to improve your smile's functionality and appearance.
  • All-on-4®: A type of implant-supported denture, All-on-4 can replace an entire arch of missing teeth. However, as opposed to traditional dentures, All-on-4 uses fewer implant posts, reducing the overall impact on your smile. During the examination of your smile, our dentist can determine if you qualify for this procedure.

Helping Prepare Your Smile for Implants

When you first visit our office, Dr. Nguyen may determine that your smile may need some preparation before you can receive your dental implants. Our office can provide you with everything from extractions to gum disease treatment. No matter what procedure you need, we'll work to make your overall experience as hassle-free as possible. Some of the pretreatments our dentist regularly performs include:

  • Extractions: At our practice, we strive to save your natural teeth whenever possible. However, for you to receive your dental implants, extraction may be necessary. Our dental team will work with you to schedule your extraction and monitor your smile to ensure the area heals correctly. Once we've extracted your tooth, we'll work with you to settle on a, implant-supported restoration that's perfect for your smile.
  • Gum Disease Treatment: Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States. The initial stage of gum disease, gingivitis, is characterized by swollen and irritated gums and can be reversed through proper oral hygiene. However, once gum disease progresses to a certain stage, bacteria can eat away at your gum tissue, expose your tooth roots, and infiltrate your jawbones, leading to tooth loss. If your smile is being affected by gum disease, we'll use laser bacterial reduction to control your gum disease before moving forward with your dental implants.
