Missing teeth can mar appearance, dampen self-esteem, and negatively impact oral health. As a skilled restorative dentist, Dr. Richardson uses dental implants to revitalize smiles and change lives.
A dental implant is comprised of an artificial tooth root topped with a crown or multiple-tooth prosthetic. Implants look and feel completely natural and are a permanent and attractive way to renew a smile. Dr. Richardson will consult with you to determine if you qualify for implants; sufficient oral health and bone density are required. In some cases, bone grafting must be completed prior to implant surgery. To install the implants, an oral surgeon will place tiny titanium posts in your jawbone, one for each missing tooth or a few to stabilize a denture, partial, or bridge. Dr. Richardson will oversee your entire case as the general dentist, then attach your replacement teeth in our Houston office. Dental implants will rejuvenate your smile, allow you to eat what and when you like, and encourage lasting oral health.
