Implant Dentistry for Round Rock Patients
Do you have a missing tooth or missing teeth and live in the Cedar Park or Round Rock area? Not only can this be troubling aesthetically — you don’t want to smile or laugh, can’t stand getting your photo taken and the like — it can be detrimental physically.
When teeth are missing, you eat on the other side of your mouth to compensate for the missing tooth. This causes the remaining teeth to possibly sustain undue wear and tear. The jaw bone also starts to deteriorate and shrink due to a lack of stimulation from tooth roots. This removes the bone structure for your face causing you to look older than you actually are.
Dental implants are a revolutionary implant dentistry procedure that can take you from having missing teeth to a smile that is full, complete and looks and feels entirely natural. Implant dentistry is nothing short of miraculous.
The Entire Dental Implant Process Is Performed At Our Austin Dentist Office!
There are two phases to the tooth implant procedure — placing the tooth implant and restoring it afterwards with a crown, bridge, denture or other restoration. Dr. Scaff performs both of these phases of implant dentistry, so often you can get your tooth implant treatment from start to finish in our office!
What does this mean for you? It means that when you come in to our office in Austin, TX for implant dentistry, you experience:
- Continuity of Care: It is the same doctor that diagnoses your specific situation, places the tooth implant in the ideal location for the specific restoration he will make for your mouth, and then places that restoration after the tooth implant has integrated with your jaw bone. There is no need to coordinate with another provider and run the risk of miscommunication or misinterpretation.
- Convenience: Everything is done in one office. There is no need to schedule with one office, then schedule with another, and then back again. With Dr. Scaff, you only need to schedule with one office and you receive treatment from the doctor that patients in Austin, Round Rock, Cedar Park and the surrounding area have trusted for more than three decades.
- Cosmetic Dentistry: Dr. Scaff is a skilled cosmetic dentist and can see in his mind what your beautiful smile will look like at the conclusion of your treatent. Having the end picture in mind helps guide the rest of the procedure, including the placement of the dental implants.
Austin dentist Dr. Scaff may refer more complicated cases to an oral surgeon, but rest assured you will be well taken care of.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are metal posts that are placed into the jawbone where you have a missing tooth. Within 3-6 months, these dental implants posts fuse (or ossify) with your jawbone, becoming sturdy tooth root replacements.
We will give you occasional check-ups for up to 6 months, when your gums are recovered and the dental implants are fused to the jawbone. At that point we will make and attach the restoration to the dental implants. You will be amazed at the natural-looking, stable, durable replacement for your missing teeth. It is like a miracle!
