 Dental Implants in Austin Texas

Dental Implants

Don’t be ashamed if your smile has some gaps. Losing teeth can happen as a part of life, but that does not mean you have to keep it that way. Today, it is simpler than ever to get high-quality dental implants that look and work as well as your originals.

At Austin Dental Care, we can restore your smile to its former shine by setting you up with professional dental implants.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Even one missing tooth can disrupt the functioning of your entire jaw, and over time this can lead to oral health problems like bite issues, TMJ, gum disease, and even bone loss. Your best way forward is to fill that gap, which is why dental implants are an effective strategy for maintaining oral health.

Unlike bridges, dental implants are capable of completely replacing a lost tooth. Implants are surgically placed in the area of a missing tooth or teeth and once it’s ready, a crown is connected to the implant – and that’s it. Because they are not anchored to other teeth like a bridge, dental implants can benefit your overall oral health.

We make it our mission at Austin Dental Care to provide you with permanent, functional and natural looking dental implants. After a procedure with us, you will not feel the need to hide your smile anymore, and your teeth will be healthier for it. Each implant will fit, feel, and work just like your regular teeth, ensuring that your mouth is restored to normal function.

What Are the Advantages of a Dental Implants?

Thousands of people in Westlake find dental implants to be the ideal solution for the health of their teeth. Below are some of the biggest benefits of getting implants.

  • Built to last: dental implants can last a lifetime if taken care of properly.
  • Reduce self-consciousness: Dental implants look just like real teeth, no one will know your secret but you
  • Retain your natural face shape and smile: gaps from missing teeth can make your mouth look sunken, but an implant will help you maintain its shape.
  • Protect bone health: empty spaces in your gums leads to breeding grounds for dangerous bacteria, which can compromise the health of your jaw in the long run.
  • No dentures needed: keeping your missing teeth in a cup can grow old, but with an implant, you will never need to worry about misplacing your smile again.

Who Should Consider a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are one of the most natural dental options for anyone who has completely lost a tooth. Each implant offers a permanent solution to tooth loss because the tooth is directly fused into your jawbone.

However, you need to have healthy gums and adequate jawbone to be a candidate for an implant. Without enough jawbone, the implant might not last. For this reason, good oral hygiene is essential for giving your implant the best chance of success.

If you are missing multiple teeth in a row or have broken teeth, a dental bridge, crown or even dentures may be an alternative solution for you. Dental implants can be tricky to cover through insurance, meaning that an alternative dental procedure might be preferred for your situation.

The Dental Implant Process

It takes several weeks to several months to get dental implants set up from start to finish. First, a durable metal post is placed directly into your jawbone and allowed to heal in place, which can take up to three or more months. Afterwards, a replacement tooth that was specifically crafted for your mouth measurements is attached to the post, where it should stay in place for several decades or more.

What Our Patients Say

Dr. Wainwright is the BEST! I've been a loyal customer for nearly 18 years. Since I've been a patient he has helped me keep my teeth in excellent condition and I haven't needed any major procedures. His team is very professional and friendly. I can't recommend them enough.

I have been a patient of Dr. Wainwright for over 10 years and have enjoyed every visit (who actually enjoys a dentist visit?!?). But the staff is always wonderful and I have complete trust in Dr. Wainwright to do what is best for me and not just for his pocketbook like some dentist reputations. I even moved to New Braunfels 8 years ago and still come back to Austin for this dentist because once you find someone you are comfortable with, it's hard to give that up and him and his staff make it worth the drive!

I've been going to see Dr. Wainwright for over 12 years now for regular and cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Wainwright and everyone in his office is always attentive, nice, and listen. If ever I've had an emergency he's seen me right away. Dr. Wainwright's office also has a variety of things to help you feel comfortable during a cleaning or treatment. Things from nitrous oxide to neck pillows and blankets, headphones, sunglasses, and music. Over the years Dr. Wainwright has treated me so well and my treatment plans have been so successful that I won't go anywhere else. Thank you Dr. Wainwright!

Dr. Wainwright is a very talented dentist with a great staff! The practice is very accommodating and helpful. Dr. Wainwright works with the patient's needs and wants. The first question that they ask is ... What do you want us to do for you? What is your goal concerning your smile and teeth? I love this group of professionals.

I met Dr. Wainwright in 2002 when I had to do major dental work and was extremely afraid of dentists from previous experiences.  Everyone at Dr. Wainwright's office was so kind and welcoming from the beginning. He offers sedation dentistry which is what brought me in.  He was able to undo and repair years worth of work in a few sessions with sedation dentistry.  The best part is you come to without the knowledge of all the procedure you just went through. Because of my great experience with him so long ago, I've maintained regular maintenance and have Kristi, my personal hygienist, to thank for that.  She is the best and I always enjoy my cleaning with her.  I've had a few normal issues throughout the years since my major dental work and they were always detected so early and taken care of so fast that they never became an issue. I'm so glad I came across Dr. Wainwright so long ago.  I love to tell people how much I love my dentist and see their unbelieving faces...but I do!  The whole team is amazing.

Dr. Wainwright and his staff are wonderful, caring, happy people! Over the past 2 years, I’ve had a few procedures done and have been comfortable and happy every time. Dr. Wainwright has had to replace faulty work done by my previous dentist, making me wish I found Austin Dental Care so much sooner! I love the laid-back, friendly staff who always take the time to make sure the patient is comfortable and at ease. Couldn’t recommend this office more highly.

I have had major dental needs over the past two years and I couldn't have been luckier to find Dr. Wainwright and his staff! They are so accommodating, friendly and professional. With all of the work I have had done on my teeth over the years, I can sincerely say I have never had a better experience in my life for dental care. From the ladies at reception to the ladies in the back helping and up to Dr. Wainwright, this is a top-notch operation and I am blessed to have found them!

Dr. Wainwright's office is immaculate and very warm and inviting. His staff was also cheerful, friendly and helpful. He spent a lot of time explaining his approach to treatment and dental care to my son (and to me as well). He asked my son if he had any questions about our treatment plan and talked to him in a kind and direct manner. Dr. Wainwright is also very knowledgeable re: advancements in dental care procedures and techniques which is helpful as it gives my son (and our family) various treatment options. His staff was informative and clear about fees associated w/ treatment and let us know up front how much our treatment would cost. My kids were surprised with a little treat on the way out of the office which they LOVED.

Glen Wainwright and his staff are highly competent professionals. Relaxing and always immaculately clean office environment. Glen is thorough in his assessments. He always values my feedback, as it is an essential aspect to ensuring positive experiences and outcomes. I can't enough about the staff hygienists! Kristy, takes care of my regular cleanings. She is consistently methodical in her cleaning process. Her personality is gentle and compassionate. Her experiential knowledge of her craft, and concern for the well-being of my dental health is always on display.
