Implant Dentistry for the Austin Area
Do you live in the Cedar Park or Round Rock area and struggle with one or more missing teeth? Not only can tooth loss be troubling aesthetically—maybe you don’t want to smile, laugh, or have your photo taken—it can be detrimental physically.
When teeth are missing, you tend to eat on the other side of your mouth to compensate for the missing tooth. This causes the remaining teeth to sustain undue wear and tear.
The jawbone also starts to deteriorate and shrink due to a lack of stimulation from tooth roots. This wears at the bone structure of your face, causing you to look older than you actually are.
Dental implants are a revolutionary implant dentistry procedure that can take you from missing teeth to a smile that is full, complete, and looks and feels entirely natural. Implant dentistry is astounding!
The Entire Dental Implant Process Is Performed At Our Austin Dentist Office!
There are two main 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 you can complete the tooth implant treatment 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, and then places the restoration after the tooth implant has integrated with your jaw bone. There is no need to coordinate with another provider.
- Convenience: With Dr. Scaff, you only need to schedule with one office to 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 who can see in his mind what your beautiful smile will look like at the conclusion of your treatment. Having the end picture in mind helps guide the rest of the procedure, including the placement of dental implants.
Austin dentist Dr. Scaff may refer more complicated cases to an oral surgeon, but we will see to it that you are well cared-for.
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 implant posts fuse (or ossify) with your jawbone, becoming sturdy tooth root replacements.
We will give you occasional check-ups in the months following placement to see whether your gums have recovered and the dental implants have fused to the jawbone. At that point, we will attach the tooth restoration to your dental implants.
You will be amazed at the natural-looking, stable, durable replacement for your missing teeth.
All-on-4® Treatment Concept
One of the most remarkable implant dentistry procedures is called the All-on-4® treatment concept, which combines dental implants with dentures.
With the All-on-4® treatment concept, you will come into our comfortable office for a consultation. Our caring, knowledgeable team will partner with you to create a treatment plan involving only four implant posts. These posts will support the dentures that are designed just for you!
Dr. Scaff can then place the 4 dental implants in strategic locations in your jaw. The denture apparatus can be fitted the very next day! You don’t need to wait the usual 3-6 month recovery time. Within 24 hours, you will have a full, complete smile.
Whether you have one missing tooth that can be replaced by a tooth implant or need to have your whole smile replaced with dental implants, you will be amazed at what implant dentistry can do for you.
