Webster Dentist on What to Know Before Getting Dental Implants

Webster dentist shares important dental implant facts for patients considering this treatment.

Dr. Ann Haggard, a Webster cosmetic dentist, discusses what patients should know before pursuing dental implants, including specific information about benefits, recovery, and candidacy.

Webster, TX – As a top cosmetic dentist in Webster, Dr. Ann E. Haggard is aware of the plethora of benefits dental implants can offer patients. In her professional experience, implants can significantly improve a patient’s oral health by replacing teeth that have decayed or fallen out due to decay, gum disease, or injury. “Not only can implants facilitate essential functions like speaking and chewing,” Dr. Haggard states, “but the placement of a titanium root within the gums can preserve the health of surrounding teeth, strengthen the jawbone, and even prevent bone loss.” Additionally, she explains, high-quality dental implants are typically extremely sturdy, and the dental crown placed atop the root is generally very lifelike in appearance. “In fact, patients often claim their implants both feel and appear indistinguishable from natural teeth,” says Dr. Haggard.

While the Webster dentist has used implants to improve the dental health of countless patients throughout her career, she emphasizes that the choice to undergo this treatment should not be taken lightly. “My team and I feel it is important for patients to understand the steps of the procedure before deciding to go through with it,” she states. For this reason, Dr. Haggard has listed the most essential factors patients should keep in mind before getting dental implants.

Ultimately, Dr. Haggard urges any patient who is interested in implants to schedule a consultation at her practice. “An evaluation from a qualified dentist is the best way to determine candidacy for implants,” she says. “This initial meeting can also be a great opportunity for the dentist and patient to develop a customized treatment plan, which may include additional procedures.”
