dental-implantsThat’s right—it’s all about dental implants!

We know you’re excited, but calm down and get ready to learn. Here at our dental office in Katy, TX, the thing we’ve found is that people know about dental implants in theory, but they don’t really know exactly how everything works.

what-exactlyWhat exactly are dental implants?

It’s actually pretty simple. The average dental implant is comprised of a few different parts.

The implant is a screw that’s placed into the bone in order to make sure that everything is stable.

An abutment is also needed. That’s the part that connects the implant to your crown.

The crown is going to be your shiny new tooth. It’s been made specifically for you in order to keep the inside of your mouth feeling as natural as possible.

For many people, a dental implant is just another dental procedure. For others, the thought alone is a source of nightmares. Luckily for you, the professionals here at Morton Ranch Dental work incredibly hard to make sure that you’re comfortable. We’ll discuss your dental implant procedure with you beforehand in order to make sure you understand exactly what you can expect.

Rest assured that when you visit Morton Ranch Dental, your comfort is our number one goal. Dr. Seo is trained in the use of laughing gas and oral sedation to make sure that you feel relaxed even when you need to get dental implants.

This is another tough question to answer because it varies. What we can say is that we’d be happy to discuss your exact situation with you, allow you to ask any questions you have, and just generally make sure that you have all of the information you need about your specific tooth implant.
