Living with missing teeth not only creates an unappealing smile, but it can also dampen your lifestyle. That’s because it can limit the foods you can eat, make it harder to pronounce words and threaten your confidence. Thankfully, there is an answer: the placement of dental implants. To have your missing teeth replaced, the first step is to contact us at Kingwood Family Dentistry to request a visit with Dr. Scott Mosby. A beautiful and lasting smile is well within your reach!

During this time, the implant will also fuse with the underlying bone through a process called osseointegration.
The next step is for the abutment’s placement, which is a titanium piece that allows Dr. Mosby to attach a final restoration, which can be an implant-retained crown, bridge, partial denture or full set of dentures.
Dental implant insertion to support prosthetics comes with its fair share of perks. Here are a few of them:
