Dental implants have been around for thousands of years. Although the methods and technology are different today, the overall concept has stayed the same since the time they were first used in some of the oldest cultures of the world, including Ancient Egypt, Ancient Maya, and Ancient China. The honest reason for the implant’s longevity is because it is a concept that works and has serious benefits for many patients. Therefore, we recommend that all eligible patients receive dental implants for all their missing teeth.
What About Dental Implants?
The advantages of using dental implants in Corpus Christi, TX are well documented. The nature of the implant itself is what lends to its usefulness in many situations. When a tooth is loose and falls out, the bone of the jaw begins to erode and loose its strength. This is because the jaw no longer senses a tooth in that location, and will not waste vital resources on strengthening the bone where it is not needed. This is true if even just one tooth is lost. Putting an implant in that location can signal to the body that there is again a need for strengthening the bone it that area. If implants are not placed in time, and there is significant bone loss in the jaw, it can begin to cause serious, noticeable changes in the shape and function of the jaw and face.
Dental implants in Corpus Christi, TX can also be used to replace multiple teeth. Whether a patient needs a few teeth replaced, or an entire mouthful, implants may be a great option. Since dental implants can last for decades when properly cared for, they make a perfect alternative to traditional tooth replacement options that need to be replaced much more often. Additionally, their simple care regimen – nothing more than brushing and flossing – makes them ideal for patients of all kinds.

Staff is very friendly. No wait time. They saw me and my daughter in a timely manner and Dr. Richards was so great! The work I had done was completely pain free... Didn't even feel the shot or the work that was being done. The end results were exactly what I needed! No pain, no complaints.
