Restoring Dental Implants
Once patients have received their dental implants, Dr. Louis Russell, Jr can provide stunning restorations at our Tomball, TX, office. Implants replace tooth roots to provide the ultimate support for crowns, bridges, and dentures. Dr. Russell uses the highest quality materials to ensure years of outstanding function and comfort, as well as a natural appearance.
Considering Dental Implants?
If you have heard anything about dental implants, you probably know they are the absolute best solution for replacing missing teeth. The titanium posts are surgically placed in the jaw by a skilled oral surgeon. The implants then fuse with the jawbone over the course of three to six months.
Dr. Russell uses the highest quality materials to ensure years of outstanding function and comfort, as well as a natural appearance.
Receiving dental implants traditionally requires a second surgery after the implants have become fused to the jaw tissue. During this procedure, special abutments are attached to the implants, which serve to connect the implant to the restorations. However, there are implant options available that can support a restoration immediately following placement. Dr. Russell can restore any kind of implant.
Restoring Your Implants
Dr. Russell works closely with two local oral surgeons. If you are interested in dental implants, he will refer you to one of these surgeons for the surgical phase of the process. After your implants are in place and ready to support restorations, you will return to our office.
We will take precise measurements of your implants, dental ridge, and any surrounding teeth. We will work closely with you to select an optimal shade of white to complement your skin tone and facial features. Our restorations are crafted from high-quality materials that provide both strength and aesthetics. After we have all the measurements and specifications for your restoration, we will send this information to a lab to guide fabrication of your crown, bridge, or denture.
The manufacturing process typically takes about two weeks to complete. Once we receive your final restoration, you will return to our office for placement. Dr. Russell will carefully inspect the restoration to ensure it meets all specifications. He can then attach the restoration to the implants.
If you had dentures prior to your implant surgery, Dr. Russell can usually retrofit the existing dentures so they can securely attach to the implants. This can result in a significant savings for many of our patients.
Why Implant-Supported Restorations are Better
Simply put, an implant-supported restoration will not move once it is in place. You never have to experience the anxiety or embarrassment of loose-fitting dentures. An implant-supported restoration will allow you to speak with complete clarity, smile with confidence, and chew any foods you wish, from fresh apples to beef jerky.
