Having missing teeth or removable teeth can leave some people feeling insecure or even embarrassed. This can lead some people to suppress their desire to smile and laugh, or it may cause you to cover your mouth with your hand when you do show your teeth. A lack of confidence in your smile can affect all of your social interactions and generally make you feel less positive about yourself. In Houston, an experienced dentist, Dr. Ronald Konig, uses dental implants to restore the appearance, function and health of your smile for the long term. You can once again have the confidence of a secure and attractive smile. To schedule a consultation, please call us at (713) 425-1302.

Restoring your smile to be attractive, healthy
Whether you are missing one tooth, several, or all of your teeth, dental implants provide a life-like, long-lasting way to replace teeth. To better meet your goals, Dr. Konig offers a variety of dental implant options:
- Replacement of a single front tooth
- Replacement of multiple missing teeth
- Dental implant-supported dentures
- Dental implant bridges and Teeth in a Day (All-on-4 technique)
- Small diameter dental implant-supported dentures
Dental implants are an excellent way to replace missing teeth. They are the only tooth replacement that is securely anchored into the bone beneath your gums. This durable foundation means that dental implants do not move around and will last a very long time. They also provide an optimally strong foundation for chewing and speaking.
Why replace missing Teeth with a Dental Implant?
With dental implants, you can smile, chew and speak with confidence and comfort. The advantages of dental implants include:
- Potential to last decades, possibly a lifetime
- Do not slip or shift in your mouth
- Provide maximum stability and durability
- Provide the convenience and natural feel of a non-removable option
- Look, feel and function like your natural teeth
- Prevent further loss of bone in your jaw
Dental implants restore your teeth as a single implant attached to a dental crown, or they can be used to support a dental bridge or dentures. Dr. Konig will help you choose an option that meets your expectations of a tooth replacement system. Dr. Konig is committed to helping you find an option that works for you. Missing teeth are not just a cosmetic issue – failing to replace those teeth can cause other teeth to shift and tilt, which can lead to bite problems. Missing teeth can also lead to structural changes in the bone beneath your gums.
