Dental Implants

Dental Implants in El Campo, TX

We know that most adults never imagine losing one or more permanent teeth; however, this problem happens more often than we’d like to admit. Millions of Americans are dealing with tooth loss. Fortunately, thanks to advanced dental technology, our dental team is making it easier to get beautiful, realistic-looking false teeth that are so advanced that they act just like the real thing.

What is a dental implant?
There are three different parts to a dental implant: the metal screw that is placed into the jawbone, the abutment that connects the implant with the false teeth, and then the dental crown (if you are replacing a single missing tooth).

What is the success rate of a dental implant?
The success rate of dental implants is extremely high (typically up to 98%). To ensure the longevity of your dental implants, you must keep your implant clean by brushing and flossing daily and getting routine checkups from our dental team every six months.

What are the benefits of a dental implant?

Here are just some of the benefits of choosing to get dental implants to replace missing teeth:

  • A long-term false tooth that stays in place and functions like a real tooth
  • Preventing bone loss
  • Supporting the facial muscles to prevent premature aging associated with untreated tooth loss
  • A lifelong restoration
  • Preserving natural teeth around the tooth
  • No need for adhesives or worrying about slippage
  • Fully restored chewing and speaking

How are dental implants placed?
To place implants, you will have to undergo minor dental surgery. Implant placement can be performed under local anesthesia, which means that the treated area will be completely numb. The gums are then opened to reveal the jawbone, where we make a small hole in the bone to place the implant. Implant placement typically takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on how many implants are being placed and the location of their placement.

Can implants support dentures?
Absolutely! What makes dental implants such a great option for so many adults dealing with tooth loss is that no matter whether they are missing one, several, or all of their teeth, they can still benefit from getting dental implants. For patients who need to replace a full arch of missing teeth (14 teeth), implants can support dentures. In fact, implants can prevent your current dentures from moving or shifting out of place when eating or speaking.

Review Us

We love to hear what our patients think!

Dr. Cheng and her staff are fabulous! I have seen her several times for multiple fillings and a partial crown, and each time they have gone out of their way to ensure my comfort and to make me feel calm and relaxed. They are friendly, yet always professional- I feel confident trusting my chompers to them. El Campo is lucky to have a dentist like Dr. Cheng!

Dr Cheng is always friendly and thorough when it comes to your dental care. In the years that my family have been a patients at this office we have always been treated respectfully and in a timely manner. The staff is always friendly and there to help when needed. TF

I am usually scared to go to the dentist. Dr Chang was sooo very kind and gentle.

This group of ladies are always so kind! Janet and Angie at the front desk are the first women you see, and they are always so pleasant! Sarah is my hygienist and she’s so sweet and great at what she does! Love Dr. Cheng! She is so soft spoken and amazing at what she does. I didn’t go to the dentist for 8+ years and my mouth was full of cavities before I saw Dr. Cheng, and she fixed me right up and never made me feel judged. She also removed my wisdom teeth and I recovered within a couple days! I highly recommend these ladies!! ❤️❤️❤️
