Osseointegration: The Implant Process That Makes New Smiles Possible

Traditional tooth replacement methods, like crowns and dentures, only address part of the problem. Without your tooth's natural roots to stimulate your jawbone tissue, the area will continue to deteriorate. Dental implants directly solve that issue.

Implants are small titanium or ceramic screws that act as artificial tooth roots. For the ultimate security, they fuse to your bone during a process called osseointegration.

As a result, your restorations won't budge a millimeter, giving you renewed functionality. Plus, implants typically last a lifetime, making them an excellent long-term investment in your well-being.

The Three Parts Of An Implant-Supported Restoration

The reason why implants are so effective? They're not in it alone. Our dentists bolster your results by using three components:


By replacing your tooth's artificial roots, titanium implants are able to perform some of the duties your natural tooth would, like stimulating jawbone tissue. They also offer a secure foundation for the next two parts: abutments and custom restorations.


From crowns to dentures, each restoration is attached to your dental implant with an abutment. Abutments aren't actually visible. Just like the top of your implant, the abutment will be completely concealed by your lifelike new restoration.


We offer a variety of dental implant-supported restorations to address all degrees of tooth loss. Whether you just need to replace one tooth, or you're looking for an entirely new smile, implants can help with every option.

Implants and Restorations Come Together to Form a Beautiful Smile

If you're considering dental implants from our Waco team, the placement and restoration process will look something like this.

Dr. Cooney and his staff, especially Kristin, are absolutely the BEST!! I recently needed to have 2 teeth repaired, both needing crowns...Dr. Cooney and his staff have been absolutely wonderful. We have done a handful of adjustments on my bite since the initial crown placements. Dr. Cooney welcomes me back each time with a smile and is more than interested and really wants to make sure I am as comfortable as possible. He always tells me to come back anytime I have any discomfort.
