When a patient is missing one or more permanent teeth, Dr. Vela and Dr. Rodriguez may recommend dental implants in Kingsville, Texas. Dental implants replace missing teeth and restore your smile. They consist of a titanium implant post and a dental restoration. Our dentists will place the dental implant post in your jawbone surgically. The implant, which becomes a permanent part of your smile, acts as replacement tooth roots. The dental restoration is attached to the dental implant post. The restoration can be a dental crown, a dental bridge, or dentures.

Dental implants have many advantages. They are very aesthetic, as your dental restoration is made to match the shade of your natural teeth. Dental implants feel and function like your own teeth. The dental implant post is designed to fuse with your jawbone, so your dental implant becomes a permanent part of your smile. Dental implants can restore your ability to speak properly. Because of their excellent functionality, dental implants allow you to eat all of your favorite foods with ease. Dental implants are very durable, lasting for many years or even a lifetime.
