Our Featured Dental Implants Procedures
Whether patients are in need of a single dental implant due to missing one or many teeth, same day dental implants offer permanent and natural looking tooth replacements.
Dental implants are made of biocompatible titanium posts and are surgically implanted into the patient’s natural jaw bone, acting like natural tooth roots. Custom made dental crowns, implants, dentures, or fixed bridges are then attached to the dental implant.
Not only will immediate and single dental implants improve patients oral and physical health, it will look aesthetically pleasing, too!
Implant supported Dentures are great for those who already wear dentures. While regular dentures are removable prosthetics, implant supported dentures are secured with two or more dental implants, permanently implanting them into the patient’s mouth.
Implant supported dentures improve the aesthetic of a patient’s smile and their basic dental function.
All-On-4 Dental Implants in Lockhart, TX, are great for patients with no functional or healthy teeth remaining. All-On-4’s are a cost-effective and minimally invasive solution that will increase patients’ quality of life.
For this permanent tooth replacement treatment, our dental team will place four to six dental implants in the patient’s upper and/or lower arch to secure the dental implant into place. After dental implants are placed, the dentist will advise patients to take caution, and only eat soft foods for about three months until the dental implants are fully healed.
For patients with anxiety about their dental procedure, or for those who do not want to be conscious while their dental procedure is being performed, sedation dentistry is a common practice dentists will use for their patients.
IV sedation, also known as intravenous sedation, is the most popular form of sedation in dentistry. IV sedation, however, does not produce the same effects as general anesthesia.
While general anesthesia puts people to sleep and is used for major surgeries, IV sedation is used to make patients calmer in a semi-awake state.
Our Featured Treatments
When gum disease is left untreated, it can progressively worsen into a disease that is incurable. Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease that is treatable. Gingivitis can be reversed and cured with scaling, root planing and laser periodontics (LANAP).
Once gum disease progresses to periodontitis, the worst stage of gum disease, it becomes incurable. However, our doctors can still reverse some of the effects of periodontal disease with our gum disease and gum recession treatments.
One of the most common signs of periodontal disease is gum recession. Gum recession occurs when the gums recede and the teeth become exposed.
Our trusted periodontists utilize the minimally invasive gum recession treatment, the Pinhole Surgical Technique, in order to provide long lasting and aesthetically pleasing results.
Not everyone is a candidate for PST however, our periodontists offer three different soft tissue grafts in order to treat any type of periodontal situation that requires donor tissue to be solved, bringing your gums back to a healthy state!
For those with cracked, broken or missing teeth, our office offers CEREC nology to give patients custom made dental crowns and bridges. The best part about CEREC is that it can be done in a single appointment, generally only taking a few hours. This gives patients a convenient and comfortable experience.
Our specialists digitally design patients’ new CEREC crowns and bridges in our state of the art in-house lab. Our crowns and bridges are made using ceramic or porcelain material. The finished product is natural looking and functional teeth.
Porcelain veneers are cosmetic enhancements that are used as a long lasting solution to improve smiles. The veneer itself is a thin sheet of porcelain that is placed over teeth to hide imperfections like chips, cracks, and discoloration.
Before porcelain veneers are placed on patients teeth, a doctor must shave off a bit of the patient’s natural tooth to make room for the veneer. Then a mold is made, at our dental lab, of the patient’s tooth to create the custom made porcelain veneer!
Benefits of Dental Implants
No matter how many teeth you are missing, having a gapped smile negatively impacts everyday activities in the appearance and the functionality of your teeth. Missing just one tooth causes other teeth to shift! Failure to replace your missing teeth will result in low self confidence, and worsening oral and physical health.
That is why you are encouraged to come and let our experienced team of dental professionals enhance your teeth so that you can resume doing everyday activities with confidence, health, and optimal function.
Getting dental implants provide patients with years of tooth stability. It allows patients to resume eating, smiling, and speaking normally again. With this office’s advanced expertise and knowledge of dental implants, we will allow you to enjoy and live life with your natural looking teeth for years to come!

Periodontal Treatments That Give Healthy Smiles
If gum disease is not corrected right away it could turn into periodontitis, a very serious and untreatable stage of gum disease. Having periodontitis leads to your gums pulling away from your teeth, leaving crevices open for bacteria to come into and begin eating away at your gums and bone. If the infection is allowed to continue growing below the gums of your teeth, this can lead to your jawbone, teeth, and gums deteriorating.
The overall health risk factors for untreated periodontal disease include diabetes, hormonal changes, certain illnesses and treatments, bad breath, and more! Eventually, your teeth may loosen and need to be extracted.
Having periodontal treatment may not always cure periodontitis, but it can help reverse the effects of gum disease, giving patients their confidence, health, and the functionality of their mouth back.
The Beauty of Porcelain Veneers
Tooth imperfections such as chips, cracks, worn down teeth and discolored teeth can continue to draw others away from your smile. You may not have the confidence to show your less than perfect teeth, preventing you from enjoying your teeth to their full potential.
Porcelain veneers are a great way to get perfect looking teeth, without having to extract any of them. Placing porcelain veneers over the imperfect teeth takes only a few minutes, but makes a huge difference.
For anyone with any sort of aesthetic dental problem, porcelain veneers are the perfect solution. Those who get porcelain veneers can get the aesthetically pleasing teeth they have always wanted. With just simple porcelain sheets placed over your imperfect teeth, they will allow you to have a smile you love!

All four of these periodontal lasers, such as LANAP, work to correct various types of gum diseases and the overall oral function of your mouth.
Gum disease occurs when plaque buildup is not removed from the teeth, leading detritus and bacteria to develop and infect the gums. Brushing and flossing daily is a great at-home preventative measure, along with frequent visits to the dentist, to keep gum disease from starting.
