Implants Act Like Your Natural Teeth
Replacing a single missing tooth can be most authentically accomplished with a single dental implant. The post of the implant mimics the root of your tooth while the dental crown looks and functions just like your natural tooth, requiring no additional maintenance.

"Dental Implants Are a One Tooth Solution to a One Tooth Problem"

Missing teeth can be unattractive and uncomfortable. They can make it hard speak clearly and difficult to chew certain foods. Previously, the only solution to missing teeth was to get dentures, bridges, and crowns. However, advances in technology have resulted in new possibilities. Dental implants are a comfortable and natural looking solution to missing teeth. Not only do implants preserve bone tissue, they are a secure, long-term alternative to dentures.

Dental implants provide a strong foundation for permanent replacement teeth. First, a titanium post is surgically fixed into your jaw and given time to naturally fuse with the bone. Once the two have fused together, a tiny abutment is placed on top of your dental implants and covered with a dental crown to match the appearance of the missing teeth.

There are several advantages to replacing your missing teeth with dental implants:

  • Enhanced appearance. Dental implants both look and feel like natural teeth.
  • Improvements in speech. Traditional dentures can sometimes slip out of place, causing you to slur your words. Dental implants are held securely in place so this is not an issue.
  • Greater comfort. Because dental implants become fused with your bone, they do not cause any discomfort when eating or speaking.
  • Facilitation of bone growth. Dental implants stimulate your jaw bone the way natural teeth would, preventing deterioration.
  • Greater durability. With proper maintenance and oral hygiene, your implants can last a lifetime.
Patients with diseased gums may require treatment before they can receive implants. There must also be a sufficient amount of bone tissue in the area for the implant to be put in place. In cases where severe deterioration has taken place, the patient may need to undergo a bone grafting procedure. If you would like to check your eligibility to receive dental implants in Austin, TX, contact the office of Dr. Corinne Scalzitti to schedule a consultation.

Dental Implants in One Day

One of the more recent, cutting edge technologies developed by Brånemark that is now available to many patients is Immediate Load or Immediate Placement dental implants.

This unique procedure enables patients to be fitted for crowns on the same day (or within 2-3 days for some cases) the implant device is installed.

There is no typical 3-6 month waiting period for the implant site to heal or stabilize via osseointegration (titanium implant post fuses with jawbone).

Dr. Corinne R.Scalzitti, located in Austin, TX, is a Dentist who serves patients from Lakeway, TX, Marble Falls, TX and Spicewood, TX. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our office and encourage you to schedule your appointment today!
