Dental Implants


Options to replace missing teeth once were pretty limited. But that's all changed with dental implants, an incredibly versatile method of smile repair!

They can replace a single tooth or a whole mouthful of teeth. In our League City, TX dentist office, we use implants in combination with different dental restorations, including:


What's more, dental implants feel, look, and function like your natural teeth! Unlike other tooth replacement options, you'll probably forget that you even have dental implants.

Interested in dental implants? Call Tieken Smiles Dentistry at (281) 942-0444 to find out more about our dental implant from Dr. Tieken.

Benefits of Dental Implants


Dental implants offer many benefits over traditional tooth replacement options. Among them:

•  Appearance. Your dental implants and dental restorations will look so much like your own teeth, chances are good no one will even know you have them!
•  Ease of care. You just brush and floss as before. With some options, you'll remove your dentures for cleaning. But you can forget about messy adhesives!
•  Durability. With proper care, dental implants should last a lifetime.
•  Security. Because they are embedded in your jaw, your dental implants aren't going anywhere! No more unwelcome slippage.
•  Functionality. Dental implants give you 90 percent of the chewing power of your natural teeth. You can eat whatever you want!
•  Preserve your bone structure. Dental implants stimulate your jawbone much like natural tooth roots, so you won't experience the loss of bone density that happens with other tooth replacement methods.

Dental Implants Explained


Dental implants involve three different parts:

•  A sturdy titanium rod that our League City, TX dentist Dr. Tieken embeds in your jawbone
•  A piece of hardware called an abutment that is used to securely attach your implant to the restoration of your choice
•  Your restoration, the only visible part of your dental implant

Depending on the type of dental implant you choose, you will receive your implant and wait for your jawbone to heal and grow around it—the fancy scientific name for this is osseointegration—before getting your dental restoration. In some cases, you can wear temporary replacement teeth out of our office on the same day you get your dental implant.

Dental Implants at Tieken Smiles Dentistry


We give you multiple options for dental implants, including:

•  Traditional dental implants. These full-size dental implants can replace single or multiple teeth.
•  All-on-4® Treatment Concept. This innovative procedure involves attaching a full arch of replacement teeth using as few as four dental implants. The roof of your mouth remains exposed, so you can more easily taste and enjoy your food than with dentures.
•  Mini dental implants. These provide similar functionality to full-size dental implants but can be used in areas that are too small or weak to support the full-size versions.
•  Same-day smile. With this procedure, you'll get a full mouth of teeth on the same day you receive your dental implants.
•  Implant dentures. We can attach a set of dentures to dental implants using balls or a bar.

Dr. Tieken is an expert in restorative dentistry and dental implants. He'll be happy to help you determine which dental implants are best for your situation. Call Tieken Smiles Dentistry at (281) 942-0444 for a free consultation or contact us to book a visit to our League City, TX dentist office.
