Dental Implants

Dental Implants in Austin, TX

Dental implants are one of the most effective and versatile ways to replace missing teeth. Our dentist can provide the entire treatment process from our office, giving you the entire course of care from one convenient location. Michael Nussbaum, DDS, offers dental implants to anyone needing a rebuilt smile.

Implant Placement Provided 

Dr. Nussbaum can perform the implant placement surgery, the first phase of every dental implant case. Traditionally, an oral surgeon performs this step. However, with the help of a surgical guide, our dentist can precisely add the implant posts to your jawbone in most cases.

However, due to lower bone volume or other concerns that may prevent implants from fusing to the jaw, some patients will need additional specialty care. When encountering these cases, Dr. Nussbaum works with a surgeon he trusts to help you get the exact care you need.

Implant Restorations

After the implants are placed, and your postoperative healing has been successful, Dr. Nussbaum can add your restorations to the implants. These prosthetics serve as the visible, chewing portion of your new tooth, while the implant post is the root that supports them.

The exact nature of these restorations is unique to your needs. The number of teeth that must be replaced and their location determines the number of implants added during placement. Then, a certain range of restorations will be available based on that prerequisite. Porcelain bridges can replace a few missing teeth, but only if they are all adjacent; otherwise, those individual replacements would be crowns.

A full arch can be replaced with either a removable denture, which some patients find easier because of its familiarity or a fixed full-arch bridge, which other patients prefer because it mimics the permanence of natural teeth. After discussing your personal preferences regarding aesthetics, utility, and budget, Dr. Nussbaum gives you the prosthetic device that best suits your exact requirements.
