Living with tooth loss can drastically affect your quality of life from the foods you can eat, to your appearance and self-confidence. When it comes to replacing missing teeth, Dr. LaKendra Sakeena offers modern dental implant solutions. Considered the gold standard of tooth replacement, dental implants mimic natural teeth in restoring function and appearance to the smile. One of the biggest advantages to dental implants is that once placed and properly cared for, they can act as a lifelong tooth replacement solution.
Dental implants are composed of three parts; a biocompatible implant post that is placed into your jaw bone, a lifelike dental crown and an abutment piece that connects the two together. The implant post stimulates the jaw bone to prevent bone deterioration and securely holds the dental implant in place. Dr. Sakeena will create a customized dental crown that will blend in seamlessly with your smile and allows you to use your tooth like normal. If bone deterioration has occurred because of tooth loss, you may require bone grafting treatment to prepare your jaw for implant placement.
When replacing your missing teeth with dental implants in Missouri City, TX, Dr. Sakeena utilizes some of the most advanced technologies to make the process easier and more convenient for you. When restoring your dental implant with a crown, we offer advanced CEREC same-day technology. CEREC allows us to create your new tooth in our office the same day as your appointment—typically in just around an hour. This prevents you from having to wait weeks for your permanent tooth and book second appointments. For those fearful of the dentist, we also offer soothing sedation dentistry to make your implant procedure relaxing and with minimal discomfort.
