Considering dental implants? A dental implant is a procedure that will restore one or more missing teeth, regardless of the reason for the loss.
Dental implants are made of titanium, a material that is well tolerated by bone, and integrates easily with bone tissue.
The purpose of dental implants is to achieve a close contact between the outer surface of the implant and the surrounding bone tissue. In that way the implant and the bone tissue can merge, and create a stable support for crowns that may be needed in the future.

Dentures are prosthetic devices designed to help patients with missing teeth perform daily activities that would otherwise be difficult. Patients who have lost their natural teeth due to decay, periodontal disease or injury may suffer from further decay, and difficulty eating and speaking. The absence of teeth can also lead to a sunken, collapsed appearance in the mouth area. By restoring the physical presence of teeth, this malformation is corrected and the patient can maintain their normal appearance.
Implant Retained Dentures
Implant-retained dentures provide an advanced alternative to traditional denture placement, as they are secured in the mouth using titanium implant posts, providing greater strength and stability for the replacement teeth. This technique allows patients with dentures to easily speak and eat without worrying about their dentures slipping out of place. Implants help dentures function just like the patient’s natural teeth.
Partial dentures are used to replace one or more missing or diseased teeth in the upper or lower jaw to restore the appearance and function of the teeth, as well as reduce the patient’s risk of gum disease. This type of replacement is often used when one or more healthy natural teeth remain in the area to support the device. Patients will be able to eat, speak and smile without difficulty once dentures are in place.
Dental fillings are one of the most common types of restorative treatments, used to improve the appearance and functionality of teeth affected by damage or decay. The filling materials, which can be made from several different substances, help to even out tooth surfaces for more efficient biting and chewing. These restorations can last for many years and help keeping the tooth looking and functioning at its best.
Crowns, also known as caps, are attached to an existing tooth. Made from porcelain, certain types of metals and other materials, they are custom-fit to your mouth. Usually a crown is needed after extensive repair work has been done, such as a root canal, after a large cavity has been filled or if a tooth cracks or breaks.

A veneer is a custom-made overlay that can be used to correct teeth that are slightly misshapen, cracked, chipped or darkened. The veneer overlay is bonded to your existing teeth.
A lab makes the veneer using a model of the teeth. This model for the veneer is obtained by your dentist. Veneers require your dentist to remove a small bit of your tooth’s enamel to bond the overlay to your tooth. You can not undo a veneer once it has been placed.
Root canal is a surgical procedure used to both diagnose and treat conditions within the dental pulp, the soft core of the tooth. The dental pulp contains nerves, blood vessels and tissue and stretches from the crown of the tooth to the root of the jaw bone. Cracked or infected teeth can cause severe damage to the dental pulp and may cause it to die. A root canal removes the damaged pulp and helps save decayed or infected teeth.
Teeth are sometimes infected or crowding other teeth in the mouth. When that happens, your dentist may refer you to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio for extraction. If a tooth is so decayed it can not be saved, if it is an abscessed tooth, or the tooth is too badly damaged from trauma, it must be removed.
