If you have missing or severely damaged teeth that are interfering with the beauty and functionality of your smile and bite, we offer dental implants at our offices in The Woodlands, TX, and Conroe, TX. Dr. Miles Mason has extensive knowledge in implant surgery, and he has the ability to replace everything from a single missing tooth to an entire dental arch. If you are seeking a permanent restoration that provides strength and durability as well as one that can offer exceptional oral health benefits, dental implants may be right for you.
Dental implants not only restore form and function to your smile, but also have incredible oral health benefits.
Dental implants are the number one tooth replacement solution for dentists, not only because they can restore aesthetics and functionality, but also because they provide a number of great oral health benefits.
Dental implants are considered by many doctors throughout the world as being the ultimate solution for tooth replacement. Whether you are missing a single tooth or you have lost the majority of your upper or lower teeth, implants can be used as a strong, sturdy base to which a prosthesis can be attached. Through advanced training, including continued education courses that have allowed him to stay current on the latest and most advanced techniques, Dr. Mason is able to perform implant surgery safely and comfortably. His focus is on delivering conservative treatments to his patients so that they can maintain comfort throughout the process and achieve a smile that not only improves aesthetics, but also improves dental function.
Part of what makes Dr. Mason stand out among his peers is his attention to detail during the planning stages. Because no two patients have the same exact oral health needs, he is careful and deliberate in his approach. During your initial consultation, he will carefully examine the areas that require implants, test your bite, and determine which types of implants will be used and where they will be placed. Once Dr. Mason has discussed your treatment plan with you, we can begin planning your surgery. On the day of your procedure, Dr. Mason will administer local anesthesia and make an incision in your gums. Small titanium posts will be surgically placed directly through the gums and into your jawbone. Once the implants are placed, Dr. Mason will close your incisions with sutures. Over the course of the following four to six months, you will go through a healing period in which the implants will fuse with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. Once the implants have completely fused and you have fully recovered, you can receive your implant-supported bridge, denture, crown, or other restoration.
Dental implants are the number one tooth replacement solution for dentists, not only because they can restore aesthetics and functionality, but also because they provide a number of great oral health benefits. Because your jaw requires stimulation from your tooth roots to keep it strong and healthy, the loss of teeth can lead to bone atrophy and the shrinking of the jaw tissue. This can cause a cascade effect in which your jaw weakens, causing your face to sag, gums to soften, and facial structure to lose its shape. However, because implants provide the necessary stimulation the jaw requires to stay strong and healthy, patients can be better protected against bone atrophy and a weakening jaw.

Dr. Mason and his staff have been fantastic. Dr. Mason has performed periodontal surgery on me twice and always made himself available for after hours care and questions. The surgical results turned out well and working with his staff has always been a nice experience.
