Dental implants are one of the most popular and effective restorative dentistry services currently available. As much as that might be the case, though, not every dentist who offers dental implants can complete your entire procedure in their own office. But at Premier Family Dental in Waco, Dr. Rick Cofer can complete your entire dental implants procedure under one roof, without referring you to another doctor.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a restorative dentistry option for patients who need to replace one or more teeth. That makes them similar to traditional options, like bridges, partials, and full dentures, but implants also do something these others don’t—besides replacing your missing teeth, dental implants also replace your missing tooth roots.
That’s a key difference. By replacing your missing tooth roots, dental implants can help you prevent bone loss in your jaw. As a result, you end up with a strong, supportive smile that feels absolutely natural, something traditional bridges, partials, and full dentures can’t do.
The Dental Implants Process
There are two phases to the dental implants process. The first phase—placement—involves Dr. Cofer placing one or more implants in your jaw. Unlike other dentists, Dr. Cofer can do this right in his Waco office, using his 192-plus hours of study to back him up.
The second phase of the process—restoration—involves the attachment of your new crown, bridge, or denture. As with the placement phase, Dr. Cofer and his team can complete this aspect under our own roof, without need to refer you to another doctor.
