Dental implants are medical-grade titanium devices that are used to replace the root and crown of a missing tooth. Dental implants are such an appealing dental restoration option because of the numerous benefits they offer, like long-term stability, functionality, and aesthetic appearance. Patients don’t have to worry about the slipping or snapping of temporary options like dentures; dental implants are placed directly into the jaw bone, offering the most stability you can find. Dental implants also help maintain the jaw bone, so there is no risk of bone loss or a sinking or sagging of the face.
Sometimes the fear of an oral procedure can prevent patients from taking care of a dental problem in a timely manner. If you are living with an incomplete smile or are at risk of losing any of your teeth, dental implants may be the perfect solution for you! Dr. Warren is available to meet with you, assess your condition, and discuss your treatment options so you feel comfortable with your course of treatment. Dental implants have been utilized for over 30 years and studies consistently show that dental implant success rates are above 95%. To find out if you're a candidate for dental implants, make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Scott Warren at Brazos Oral & Facial Surgery today!
Many teens and adults have developed a full set of primary teeth and are unaware that they may have wisdom teeth developing. Most people don’t realize that their wisdom teeth have the potential to cause significant problems to their long-term oral health. Typically, these molars do not grow into the mouth in a beneficial manner because the jaw is not large enough to accommodate them. Wisdom teeth make patients more susceptible to a host of problems like impaction, infection, chronic pain, and oral diseases. Dr. Warren recommends early removal of wisdom teeth, preferably in the mid- to late teens, before problems arise and to prevent more complicated procedures in the future.
If you want to find out more about wisdom teeth removal, please make an appointment at Brazos Oral & Facial Surgery. Dr. Warren will review your medical and dental history and take X-rays or 3D scanning that will reveal the position of the wisdom teeth, their length, and their shape. Our responsive office staff and highly trained surgical team are available to help you and answer your questions. We want you to completely understand your treatment and receive optimal results from your procedure.
When patients suffer from extensive tooth loss, they usually feel like there is no accessible solution. Many patients think that restoration for multiple missing teeth requires six or more dental implants and often requires a year or more of healing, but that is not true anymore. At Brazos Oral & Facial Surgery, we offer our patients a unique treatment for restoring an entire upper or lower arch of teeth. This unique treatment, called full-arch replacement, entails the placement of four to six specialized dental implants surgically placed within the jaw bone, which will attach to a custom, fixed denture.
When choosing a tooth replacement, patients want something that looks natural and feels comfortable for daily wear. We know that the best solution to meet those criteria lies within the full-arch replacement procedure. If you are interested in learning more about restoring your smile and finding out if the full-arch replacement procedure is right for you, we encourage you to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Scott Warren. He will develop a plan for tooth replacement that fits your needs and is happy to answer all of your questions about your treatment.
