If you have suffered tooth loss, one of the options you may want to consider to replace your missing tooth/teeth is dental implants. Dental implants are posts or frames that an oral surgeon surgically inserts into your jawbone to replace the root of your tooth. The oral surgeon can then affix a replacement tooth on top of the implant(s), providing a stable base for an artificial tooth.

Dental Implants Austin


The first step to obtaining dental implants is to contact our team at Austin Cosmetic Dentistry and determine if you are a good candidate. People who need dental implants usually have:

  • Lost a tooth or teeth to decay or trauma
  • Potential bone loss in their jaw due to the absence of original teeth
  • A desire for a natural looking restoration to replace the missing tooth / teeth

If you have dental anxiety, you can still receive dental implants. Our team is one of the Austin and surrounding area’s top DOCS certified dentists (Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation) and can administer oral sedation to take away your fears and leave you relaxed yet awake for the procedures.


What is the dental implant procedure like?
It’s one of the first question we get.

What to expect before, during, and after the dental implant procedure.


Dental implants don’t just replace a missing tooth. They have many other benefits as well, including the ability to:

  • Replace a tooth lost days ago or one lost years ago
  • Reestablish the support system a full row of teeth provide to each other
  • Preserve your remaining jawbone, reducing the risk of additional tooth loss
  • Restore normal speech, eating, and facial structure
  • Provide a foundation for bridges and dentures.
  • Last the rest of your lifetime, with a 95-98% success rate
  • Improve your smile, your self-esteem, and your self-confidence

The dental implant process consists of several steps. First, a treatment plan is devised with a clear vision of the restored smile. If the tooth remains, it is removed from the implant site, and a titanium post is placed into the jawbone to act as a “root” for your new tooth. An abutment is attached to the implant, to later support a natural looking crown.

Each stage of treatment is either performed in our Austin dental office or in the office of a recommended specialist, typically an oral surgeon or periodontist. Each step is spaced out from the last, first to allow the implant to fuse with the bone in your jaw, and second for your gum to heal around the implant site. Once the implant and post have been placed and are stable, the crown will be attached to create a “tooth” that is strong, durable, and indistinguishable from your other teeth.

If you need replacement teeth, we invite you to learn more about dental implants at a complimentary consultation. Our doctors will be happy to answer your questions and explain your options. She is qualified to offer dental implant restorations to replace single teeth and to secure dentures, partials, and bridges.

Dental implants have been used extensively for many years and are a natural-looking, durable solution for missing teeth. Many traditional denture wearers have switched to implant secured dentures because it gives them back the control and convenience they had with their natural teeth.
