Dental Implants in San Antonio, TX

Dental implants offer a long-term solution to a missing tooth!
A missing tooth can impact the look and function of your smile. The gap left by the missing tooth can make it harder to eat and speak. It also puts your dental alignment at risk, as your other remaining teeth may shift.

If you’re dealing with one or more missing teeth, dental implants may be right for you.

Dental implants are a popular and effective solution for those who have lost one or more teeth. At our Dominion Ridge Dentistry, we offer top-quality dental implant services in San Antonio to help restore your smile and your confidence.

About Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are placed into the jawbone. They are a permanent and durable solution that looks and feels like natural teeth. The implant is then topped with a crown, bridge, or denture, depending on the patient’s needs.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Anyone missing an adult tooth may benefit from dental implants including:
Young Athletes

Occasionally, a high school student experiences an accident or injury from sports and loses a tooth. Of course, the best option is to retrieve the tooth, push it back into the empty socket, and visit our emergency dental clinic. But sometimes the broken tooth can get lost in the shuffle.

Thank goodness, Dr. Louis R. Garcia can place a dental implant so the virgin teeth on each side don’t have to be ground down for a three-unit bridge.

People Missing Canines

Every now and then, Dominion Ridge Dentistry has an appointment with a patient whose permanent smile came in without their eye teeth. Lack of canine teeth can cause a huge confidence strain.

Ignoring the situation can cause a mismatched bite and the potential for a life of headaches and nighttime bruxism (grinding teeth). At Dominion Ridge Dentistry, we can open up the spaces even further and then place dental implants. The resulting smile is not only gorgeous, but the teeth mesh comfortably and the occlusion (bite) is balanced.

Those with Loose Dentures or Partials

Seniors, or often middle-aged adults, with dentures often find it hard to maintain good nutrition because they cannot chew many healthy foods. If loose dentures or partials keep you from eating the foods you want, then implants may be the solution. By installing implants that solidly secure the dentures, patients feel like they have all their natural teeth once more. With dental implants, patients find it easy to smile, laugh and eat without fearing that their dentures may slide or make noises or that their bridge will trap food.

The Dental Implant Procedure in San Antonio

The process of getting dental implants starts with a consultation with one of our experienced dentists. During this initial appointment, we will assess your oral health and determine if dental implants are the right solution for you. We will also take x-rays and impressions to ensure a precise fit for your implant.

Once we have determined that dental implants are the right choice, the actual implant placement can be done in a few different ways. In some cases, the implant can be placed on the same day as the extraction of the damaged tooth. In other cases, bone grafting may be required to ensure the implant has enough support.

The healing process for dental implants can take several months, because the implant must fuse with the jawbone. During this time, we will closely monitor your progress to ensure that the implant is healing properly.

Once the implant has fully healed, we will attach the abutment and crown, bridge, or denture to the implant. This final step will complete the process, leaving you with a fully functional and natural-looking new tooth.
