Dental Implants in San Antonio

Dental implants are a wonderful innovation that act as a foundation for your replacement teeth. If you’re missing teeth, you may have noticed that your ability to eat is impaired. You may be embarrassed about your smile and feel inhibited in social situations. That is why we are excited to offer this technological fix as part of our mission to provide perfect smiles to San Antonio’s residents.

Dental implants and new replacement teeth can give you a new lease on life by providing you with the ability to once again eat, talk, and smile normally. Getting these missing teeth replaced can also improve your facial structure, preventing a sunken look.

Dental implants are tiny posts made of titanium that are placed in your jawbone near the areas where you are missing teeth. The surrounding jaw bone will bond with the titanium post and provide a new foundation for your new teeth. Replacing your missing teeth and using dental implants can also help prevent bone deterioration that would normally occur with missing teeth.

Dental implants are an exciting new technology that can literally change the way you live. Once you have your implants and your replacement teeth, you can rediscover pleasure in eating, talking, and laughing.

Why Consider Dental Implants?

Losing a tooth can cause further consequences if it isn’t treated. Your health and lifestyle can be affected if you choose not to replace the tooth or teeth you have lost. Losing a tooth can cause:

  • Bone loss
  • Teeth to shift or drift
  • Bite alteration
  • Joint problems in the jaw
  • Problems chewing properly
  • Added stress to remaining teeth

On the other hand, there are many benefits to replacing missing teeth using dental implants. Dental implants can:

  • Maintain the integrity of your bone structure
  • Preserve the health of adjacent teeth
  • Replace ill-fitting dentures
  • Maintain natural bite
  • Feel and work like natural teeth
  • Improve your ability to speak and chew
  • Prevent bone loss, which can improve facial appearance

Patient education and transparency lead to great doctor patient relationships at Cosmetic Dentistry of San Antonio.

Wanda Mifflin - Patient Testimonial
I've never had a dental experience like this in my life! I don't fear the dentist anymore.\" Our patient, Wanda, shares her story about finding the right cosmetic dentist and how grateful she is to have her smile back

It was, it is just unbelievable. I have never had a dental expire like this in my life; I don’t fear the dentist anymore – ever. I went to other places and I just was not satisfied. They would just tell me what they were going to do and I did not have any input and my boss is the one that told me about Dr. Camacho and his staff. From the beginning he called me from the night before and you just don’t hear that anymore in the world we live in now and he introduced himself and explained to me what to expect from the next day and I felt very conformable from the very next day I came in and I felt welcomed like I was a part of the team and then he did all the tests, and all the results and he came up with 2 different option and he offered me option and he made it so simple and there are no surprises, everything they do they tell you ahead of time there is no last minute anything they are very organized and very professional and for the first time in my life I had no fear of coming to the dentist. I went for the one where I have got complete upper and a partial on the lower and it was not as costly as i had dreamed or I had been told at other places and as soon as he pulled mine, he put the partial in there right away. I went home and that day was a beautiful upper smile and I never felt any pain I never saw it bleeding. They tell you everything and you are free to call him on his own private cell phone i mean who does that? I was very excited to get here and to get things going – it has been perfect ever since, and I have never experienced any kind of dental care like this – they treat you lie you are a VIP and they really care and always doing the procedures they ask you if you are comfortable are you in pain, is there any we can do offer you water – anything they are just, they really care about how you feel really. I am so grateful to him and his staff – they make you feel like you are part of the family and when you hear the laughter going through the building different areas you hear the laughing especially his it is very contagious! I never thought I will eat corn on the cob again but on my 65th birthday on July 14th I had corn on the cob and it was delicious. I am so grateful to him for giving me back my smile and now everyone compliments me on my smile and I tell them where I got my smile back at Dr. Camacho’s cosmetic dentistry.
