Dental Implants

Secure Your Smile Invest in Your Future

If you're suffering from missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures, you understand the impact it can have on your daily quality of life, not to mention your self-esteem. It can be difficult to enjoy your favorite foods, and to speak and smile with confidence. But did you know there may be other things happening under the surface if missing teeth are left missing?

Surrounding teeth begin to shift and rotate, compromising your alignment, bite and TMJ. Eventually, the supporting gum tissue and underlying jawbone begin to deteriorate without the support of the tooth root. This can happen even with traditional restorations and dentures that sit on top of the gums.

Thankfully, your Austin dentists at Hedgecock Dental can surgically place and restore dental implants right here from the comfort of your dental home!

I am glad to have chosen Hedgecock Dental for the creation of my implants. The precise measurement of the placement of both upper and lower teeth is as close to perfection as it comes. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you Hedgecock Dental.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts or screws that are surgically inserted into the gums and underlying jawbone. Once healed, dental implants actually fuse to the jawbone and become a fully integrated replacement tooth root, which is an essential component of a healthy, functioning smile. Once healed, dental implants serve as anchors for secured restorations like crowns, bridges or dentures.

Choose a permanent solution for your smile

If you've experienced extensive tooth loss, you may face the choice of implants or dentures. Constantly removing, cleaning and caring for dentures can be a hassle, and no one wants to worry about their dentures coming out at an inopportune moment. On the other hand, implants provide a permanent solution, but you don't want an implant for every tooth in your mouth.

At Hedgecock Dental in Austin, TX, we're glad to offer a permanent solution to restore your smile. Fixed implant bridges provide an option for total restoration. Sometimes called All-on-4 implants, a fixed bridge implant is comprised of four strategically placed implants that cover the full span of your mouth. With several teeth fitted to each implant, you'll have a full, stunning smile in no time.

Implant Dentures

This is the only way to prevent jawbone deterioration and stimulate new bone growth. Implant dentures help you maintain your facial structure, and allow you the freedom to enjoy your favorite foods and clean and maintain them just like your natural teeth! No more messy denture adhesives or dentures that slip out of place, implant dentures are a secure and permanent solution for patients seeking a better future for their smile.

Cone Beam 3D Imaging

Our advanced cone beam 3D imaging technology allows us to provide precision surgical dental implant placement from the comfort of your dental home. This allows us to see a detailed picture of your jaw bones and other important oral structures including nerves, sinus cavities, and blood vessels, so we know exactly where each implant should go and at what angle to achieve the best results.

Once we have created your treatment plan, this advanced technology turns it into a surgical stent or a template to guide your treatment. The surgical stent is used during implant placement to ensure each implant is inserted with precision accuracy and nothing is left to chance. There's no need to find a dental implant specialist or implantologist-we can complete your entire dental implant treatment comfortably and conveniently under one roof!

Give Your Jaw and Mouth Extra Support

Take advantage of dental implants in Austin, TX

There are several options for replacing missing teeth. Crowns, bridges and dentures can give you your teeth back, but they don't support your gums, jawbone or remaining teeth. With dental implants, you can reinforce your mouth with a small post or screw that acts more like a traditional tooth and root system.

Hedgecock Dental offers dental implants at our office in Austin, TX. We use cone beam 3-D imaging technology to make sure implants are made with accuracy and precision. Our dentist will insert implants into your gum and jaw to support teeth replacements and help them function more naturally.
