If you have lost one or more teeth, our dentist may suggest implants. Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. They are placed to provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth. Dental implants can also support dental bridges and dentures. An implant restoration (a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture that is attached to the implant post) is made to look like your natural teeth, so it restores your smile. After a specialist places the implant root, our dentist will custom make the needed restoration.

If you have missing teeth, wear dentures that are uncomfortable, or feel uneasy about removing good tooth structure, Dr. Anthony Gonzalez may recommend dental implants in Corpus Christi, Texas. Implant restorations have many advantages. They feel and look like your natural teeth, so they improve the appearance of your smile. Implant-retained dentures can improve your speech because you can speak without your dentures slipping. Implant restorations become part of you, so they are more comfortable than dentures. Dentures attached with implants also make eating easier. Implants do not require reducing other teeth, so they improve oral health, and they are very durable – they will last many years, or even a lifetime. Implant restorations are convenient because they become part of your smile, so you do not need to remove them for cleaning.
