A missing tooth or several missing teeth can impact a person’s quality of life. Missing teeth can make it difficult to eat certain foods or form certain words. If you have several missing teeth, you may want to consider dental implants in Lubbock, TX. Visit us at the Hill-Davis Dental Group where Dr. Camie Davis and Dr. Kourtney Kouth can help restore your smile again.

What Are My Tooth Replacement Options?

A mouth full of missing teeth can affect your quality of life. Luckily, patients have permanent and removable options.

Removable Dentures

Dentures are a type of dental prosthetic in which a set of artificial teeth fit over the bone ridge that once held a patient's natural teeth. Dentures may come in a full or partial set and can be removed at night.

Dental Implants

Implants are a permanent replacement for one or several teeth. You can even use implants to replace all the teeth in your mouth. When you come to our office in Lubbock, TX, for dental implants, we will place titanium posts in your jawbone to replace the roots of missing teeth. Once the jawbone has healed, we place crowns on the implants. Dental crowns look and function like natural teeth.

Dental implants can last a lifetime or at least decades with proper care and maintenance. Unlike dentures, you never remove dental implants.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implants can be used to support upper or lower dentures. Patients can rest assured that their dentures won't slip out when eating or talking.

Don’t let missing teeth get you down in Lubbock, TX. Dental implants are available at Hill-Davis Dental Group. Dr. Davis and Dr. Kouth will help restore your smile, so call us at (806) 793-0651.
