What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small titanium fixtures that are placed in the bone of upper and lower jaws. They
serve as substitutes for the portion of lost natural teeth, and act as an anchor for replacement teeth. Dental
implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth.
Research and documented scientific studies have proven the effectiveness and long lasting results of implants. You can
rely on your new teeth to look, feel and function like natural teeth for years to come.

Teeth in an Hour!

We, at Periodontal Health Professionals are one of the first offices in Austin to offer the NobelGuide system - "Teeth-in-an-Hour."
We can now replace missing teeth with permanent dental implants easily, quickly and comfortably.
With conventional treatment you have to wait for your implants to heal before teeth are placed, which can take months. NobelGuide gives you your new teeth right away. You may be able to eat immediately after the treatment.
Simple and quick
NobelGuide is a unique system that has lots of advantages over old-fashioned implant treatment. Not only does it reduce the number of visits to your dentist, you also spend less time there.
Best of all, little recovery time is needed after treatment, so you can return to your active life immediately.
Replacing a Single Tooth
A dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement options. In addition
to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, a dental implant replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighboring teeth.
The other common treatment for loss of a single tooth is a tooth-supported fixed bridge. A traditional
bridge involves grinding down adjacent teeth to support the bridge. It is a stable solution with good esthetics and function that is fairly easy to install.
However, this alternative has two main disadvantages: continuous bone resorption in the edentulous area, and sacrificing
healthy teeth on behalf of the bridge.
