If you are missing a tooth or need to have multiple teeth replaced, dental implants are the best restorative solution to ensure your long-term oral health. A dental implant is a small, medical-grade titanium post that is inserted into the jaw and supports the full dental restoration. The implant contains three parts: the implant itself, a metal connector called the abutment, and the porcelain crown that acts as the tooth. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons Dr. Donald Cohen and Dr. Christopher Dauterive have over 30 years of experience utilizing dental implants to restore a beautiful new smile that patients are proud to show off. After an initial consultation and review of your medical history, Drs. Cohen & Dauterive will determine if you are a candidate and make a recommendation for a dental implant treatment plan. Patients who undergo tooth restoration with dental implants enjoy a lifetime of stable, beautiful teeth. If you’re interested in learning more about dental implants, we encourage you to contact Houston Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center to schedule an initial consultation.
Many teens and adults are completely unaware that they have an additional set of molars growing beneath the surface of their gums in the far back of their mouth. Your third molars, or wisdom teeth, have the potential to increase chewing and grinding power, but most people do not have the space in their mouth to allow these teeth to grow in properly. Patients with wisdom teeth are susceptible to several dental problems like tooth impaction, infection, gum disease, and misalignment of healthy teeth. We recommend that the wisdom teeth be removed during the mid- to late teens to avoid potential problems. Dr. Cohen, Dr. Dauterive, and our surgical staff have been highly trained in surgical monitoring, CPR, sterilization processes, and the administration anesthesia to ensure the highest level of safety possible during your treatment. If you have questions or would like to schedule a consultation, please call our office in Houston, Texas.
If you are missing several teeth, missing an entire upper or lower arch of teeth, or you wear dentures, the All-on-4® Treatment Concept may be the perfect solution for you. Unlike temporary dentures, the All-on-4® Treatment Concept prosthesis places a fixed denture in the mouth using four high-quality dental implants made from medical-grade titanium. The majority of the procedure is completed in one visit, and patients will receive a temporary fixed denture while the dental implants integrate with the jaw and the final prosthesis is carefully custom designed. Once the healing period is complete, the final arch of replacement teeth is placed, and patients gain the ability to speak clearly, eat comfortably, and smile with renewed confidence. To learn more and find out if you are a candidate for the All-on-4® Treatment Concept, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cohen or Dr. Dauterive at Houston Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center.
