Teeth Implants – Replacement Tooth Roots
What are dental implants? Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Dental implants can provide a perfect structural base for any dental work you might need. These implants, considered prostheses, are made from sturdy materials that are built to withstand everyday living. A quality dental implant will allow you to do all the chewing and biting that you normally would, with no changes or modifications.
A dental implant is placed into the jawbone and is used to replace the root portion of a tooth. Once bone hardens around the implant it can be used to restore a single missing tooth space, to anchor a partial or full denture or various other combinations.

Why You Might Need Dental Implants
Tooth loss can happen for many reasons, despite ever-improving dental care in the United States. Besides accidents, tooth loss can occur from gum disease (gingivitis) or tooth decay.
Many people in Austin are choosing dental implants because they feel so natural. Implants themselves don’t replace teeth, but they offer a secure platform for crowns, dentures, and bridges. Because the implant will fuse to the bone, it will literally become a part of your mouth; it doesn’t get more secure than that.

Why Dr. Booth for Dental Implants?
Dental implants do require oral surgery. Many Austin dental offices will need to refer you out to an oral surgeon to complete the surgery. But at Silver Screen Dental, we can handle this procedure in our office. The same dentist who places your implant will be the same dentist you consulted with and the same one who will be responsible for your aftercare: Dr. Steven Booth.
Dr. Booth has received a fellowship from the International College of Oral Implantology for his extensive continued education in implantology. His extensive continuing education in the field of implants has lead to his fellowship in International Congress of Oral Implantology.
Dr. Booth and the Silver Screen Dental team feel that it is a big advantage to get the surgical and restorative phases of dental implants done by the same doctor. It is more predictable when the restorative doctor places the implant with the final restoration and its long-term success in mind.
