Dental Implants in The Woodlands, TX

dental implantsWhether you’ve recently lost a tooth or have had missing teeth for some time, there’s no time like the present for tooth replacement. One of your best options is a dental implant. With dental implants, The Woodlands, TX, residents can enjoy the appearance and the performance of a prosthesis that closely imitates a natural tooth. At Bear Branch Family Dentistry, Dr. Gutierrez is an expert in the treatment of tooth loss with dental implants.

Dr. Gutierrez’s Qualifications

Dr. Gutierrez received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Texas Health and Science Center San Antonio Dental School. He was recognized by the German Society of Oral Implantology and awarded a Fellowship by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists in Berlin, Germany. Dr. Gutierrez was instrumental in bringing PRGF dental biologic technology to Texas, and now Bear Branch Family Dentistry is one of only two centers in the state that is recognized by the Bio Technology Institute. With these credentials, Dr. Gutierrez is highly qualified to perform dental implant placement as well as any bone grafting necessary to strengthen your jawbone before implant surgery.

Receiving Dental Implants in The Woodlands, TX

Before beginning any tooth replacement procedure, Dr. Gutierrez conducts a careful oral examination. Especially with implants, success depends on good oral health, as well as your commitment to maintain a strict at-home hygiene routine as well as regular checkups with your implant dentist in The Woodlands, TX.

Once you are qualified for dental implants, your new smile begins with minor oral surgery in our office to place the implants in your jawbone. While you heal, something rather unique happens below your gums—the implant and surrounding bone tissue fuse together. The implanted post is made of titanium, which is a biocompatible metal. Once fused together, the bone firmly holds the implant in place and the implant stimulates your jaw so there is always healthy bone tissue.

The healing process does require several months, but then it’s time for Dr. Gutierrez to attach your tooth restoration. In the case of a single missing tooth, he’ll likely prefer a porcelain crown. If you’ve had a number of implants placed to substitute for several missing teeth, then implant-retained dentures may be best. We also offer All-On-4 dentures that provide same day tooth replacement.
