Rating: 5 Dental Implants Austin - 5 Star Reviews


I was first referred to Dr. Cole a few years ago for some major reparative work on leaking mercury fillings, because he in safe removal. He was so informative, skilled, and knowledgeable that I felt completely comfortable placing my trust in him, and I’ve been extremely satisfied with every visit since.

He also did an incredible job with some extensive and much-needed cosmetic repair work, which has made me very happy! His office staff is wonderful in every way as well. I would NEVER go anywhere else! Just can’t say enough what a good feeling it is to be able to trust someone with my teeth and smile.
Dental Implants Austin - Before and After
Advanced Restorative Dentistry improves your smile and your health.
In the past few decades, tooth replacement has evolved a great deal. Instead of relying on “top-of-the-gum” appliances such as dentures or partials, dental patients may now experience the restoration of form and function with dental implant treatment.

Dental implants are more than just tooth replacements. They could be considered root replacements instead. This is because the design of implants begins with a small cylindrical post that is inserted into healthy jawbone. This post, over a few months, is accepted by bone tissue through osseointegration, a process by which bone fuses to the implant. Once the implant has become fully integrated into the jawbone, a restoration such as a crown, bridge, or denture appliance can be affixed for function and appearance that closely mimic the natural oral structure.

The design of implants results in various benefits unavailable with other tooth replacement treatments. Because implants are situated within the jawbone, just like natural tooth roots, the stimulation that is necessary for bone retention remains consistent. This form of treatment solves the major problem of tooth replacement with conventional dentures which is bone loss and the resulting deterioration of support for the lips and cheeks.

Dr. Cole performs dental implant treatment in select cases, using the latest technology to facilitate the most successful outcome. Implant dentistry is performed using the Galileos cone beam scanner which allows us to capture a 3D image of the oral structure in mere seconds. Utilizing this diagnostic equipment, we are able to plan more efficiently the strategic placement of dental implants for optimal function.

Our priority is the accomplishment of long lasting results for our patients. In addition to placing implants in select cases, Dr. Cole works with an experienced, reputable Austin periodontist, to whom complex cases are referred.

If implant treatment is preceded by tooth extraction, we design beautiful temporary restorations that allow our patients to retain full chewing function as the gums heal from their initial procedure. Dr. Cole may also place a temporary provisional, which shapes the gums in preparation for implant surgery.

The beauty and function that result from implant treatment makes it difficult to discern the difference between natural teeth and replacements. Properly maintained, implants can last many years. Contact our Austin dental practice to learn more about implant treatment.

    I couldn't be happier with my experiences so far. I have never been comfortable in a dentist office and have been embarrassed about how poorly I've taken care of my teeth. I have felt like a family friend with everyone in the office since I first showed up at their door. Their bedside manner is a 10! I love the fact that they are holistic and do everything they can to ensure I get the best and safest treatments possible. I will likely continue to go to them even if I relocate out of the state. Thank you, Dr. Cole, and staff for helping me- I can not fully express my gratitude.
