Dr. Craig Mabrito specializes in the restoring of implants to cosmetically replace missing teeth or dentures. Tooth implants are the closest replica to your natural teeth and are the most permanent and secure solution for the replacement of one or multiple teeth.
Research has indicated that implants should last over 30 years if properly maintained. They are composed of different types of metallic materials, often titanium, and bone-like ceramic materials that are compatible with body tissue.
Unlike other restorative dental solutions, implants:
- Allow a limitless diet
- Preserve your facial structure
- Help maintain jaw bone density
- Correct speech problems
- Do not compromise surrounding teeth
Dental implants in Houston, Texas, are your solution to restoring the confidence in your smile.
Dental Implant Procedure
Proper implant placement takes a skilled team. A correctly placed implant will arch with the rest of the teeth and have a natural gum line. Our dentist will recommend a specialist to perform the surgery of inserting the implant for the placement of the tooth restoration (performed by Dr. Craig Mabrito). The procedure is performed with local anesthesia and medication can be prescribed for soreness.
During healing, a temporary tooth is placed over the newly inserted abutment to help train the gum tissue to arch around the sides of the tooth instead of going straight across.
