A Quick Guide To Dental Implants

Is your smile missing teeth? Tired of having to wear uncomfortable dentures? At Luxadent, we are proud to offer dental implants in Houston, TX. Dental implants are a great option for patients that are interested in restoring a tooth or multiple teeth permanently.


Dental implants are actually comprised of multiple parts which are used to secure the entire restoration to your jaw.

The implant is actually a tiny, titanium post which is surgically attached to the jawbone. It can take a few months for the implant to completely heal before the abutment and restoration can be placed.

The abutment is placed once the implants that were attached are completely healed. The abutment is attached to the tiny portion of implant sticking out and is used to secure the prosthetic to the implant.

The prosthetic restoration can actually be made using dental crowns, bridges, partials, and even dentures depending upon oral health and ultimate smile goals. Each implant restoration is designed to look, feel and function just like natural teeth.

Prior to receiving dental implants, a consultation will need to be performed to determine whether you are a candidate for dental implants. Those with excessive bone loss may need additional treatment before being a candidate.


When it comes to restoring missing teeth and improving the appearance, health and function of a smile, our implants in Houston have quite a few benefits, including:

  • Dental implants are designed to look as natural as possible.
  • Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper dental care.
  • Dental implants can improve your appearance, ability to eat and even speech.
  • Dental implants can prevent bone loss, demineralization, and an aged appearance.
