Tooth Replacement Solutions for Every Patient
Dental implants are made of two parts, a post that functions as a prosthetic tooth root, and a crown or restoration, which is the portion of the tooth you can see. Because the implant post is surgically inserted into your jawbone, this structure is secure. In other words, the replacement tooth does not rely on surrounding teeth for support, the way a dental bridge does.
This service is versatile enough to replace a single tooth or anchor a bridge, partial, or full denture. At our dental practice in San Antonio, TX, Dr. Holland can place implants for many styles of replacement teeth, including overdentures (implant-retained dentures). As an experienced general dentist, he will provide you with the information and education you need to make an informed choice about what’s best for your situation. He will also oversee the implant placement process from start to finish.
