IMPLANT PLACEMENT & IMPLANT-RETAINED PROSTHETICS
Tooth loss is a devastating event can have painful consequences for both oral health and self-confidence. Thankfully, dental implants are completely changing the landscape of reconstructive dentistry by providing patients with revitalizing health benefits, long lasting quality, and a virtually seamless appearance.

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
THE SURGICAL PROCESS
Once the bonding process has been successful, patients will return to our Waco office for the second phase of treatment. Dr. Beck will carefully uncover the implants and attach small posts (also called abutments) to them, which will serve as anchors for the actual artificial teeth.
The entire implant process takes anywhere from six to eight months, and most patients experience very little disruption to their everyday life.
TYPES OF PROSTHETICS
Dental implants and implant-retained prosthetics offer patients several valuable benefits over more traditional reconstructive methods, including:
- They’re the only treatment option that actually preserves the health and fullness of the jawbone over time, helping patients prevent additional dental problems and a hunched facial appearance in the future.
- They provide much more permanence and security when compared to the relative discomfort and looseness of dentures.
- They don’t require patients to sacrifice the structure of surrounding healthy teeth to accommodate them.
