About Dental Implants
For a long-lasting and attractive substitute for lost teeth, advanced dental procedures at Fairfield Dental Care and Orthodontics in Cypress, TX by our dentists use dental implants to help restore a beautiful, fully-functioning mouth. Dental implants surgically place titanium posts in the jaw to mimic the natural root, so false teeth can be attached for a secure fit that doesn't require food restrictions or adhesives. The false teeth will be colored and shaped by our dentists to match the patient's teeth for a natural appearance. For anyone who is missing a single tooth or more, dental implants at Fairfield Dental Care and Orthodontics can be a great, long-lasting solution.
"I visited Fairfield Dental for cleaning and whitening. Upon arriving at the office I was greeted by a friendly staff member. Throughout my appointment staff were friendly and efficient. They also ensured my comfort at all stages of the appointment. Dr. Jones completed my cleaning; she, too, checked on my comfort throughout the appointment and completed my cleaning in a timely manner. The staff that conducted the whitening explained, in detail, the whitening process and potential side effects. Although, I was unaware of how long the whitening process would take (2 hours), I was pleased with the results of both the cleaning and whitening. I would recommend Fairfield Dental to others in northwest Houston."- M.J. / Google / Jan 04, 2019
"I have been going to Fairfield Dental for 15 years, when it was only Dr Grimm. He was a wonderful dentist that later retired. There have been different dr's in between. But i have to say, the staff and Drs they have now are by far the best. I cant thank Dr. Dean enough for all the care he provided. I was in the worst pain the week before Christmas. He saw me right away, same day I called in pain. He took me right in and found the problem and fixed it right away. He even called me the following day to check up on me, as well as the staff did after that. They are so caring and I highly recommend Dr Dean, he is by far the best and caring Dentist. You couldn't ask for a better staff all around. From the phone call, to arriving , the procedure and then checking out. They work well together and that's what makes for such a pleasant visit.....and its a Dentist office of all places, most people dread that. I never do. And i have to add, my husband has a terrible fear of Dentist, but a couple of months ago, Dr Dean took great care and was very patient with him. Just the best. Thank you all for making my Christmas a pain free one. You all made sure that I wouldn't have to go through that horrific pain during the holidays. I forgot the name of the other Dr's who finished up my root canal, but she was also wonderful. Thanks again, and wishing your clinic the best in the new year."- T.M. / Google / Dec 27, 2018
"I've always been afraid of going to the dentist, but the staff here is so efficient and friendly! I receive phone calls and email reminders about my upcoming appointments. They also make sure all my insurance info is up to date prior to my visit so that I dont have to wait long in the waiting room. Their office also makes sure to break down my personal costs before I get any work done. Dr. Jones is my dentist, and she is incredible. She is kind, gentle, and she listens. She did my dental exams before my wedding, and served me up some wedding'white teeth! I recently had 3 fillings done. She braced me for the local numbing via syringe and checked multiple times throughout the process to make sure I didn't feel any pain. My hygienist is Tu; she works quickly and with extra care to my teeth, and she is literally the sweetest person in the world. I always leave this place with a bigger and brighter smile."- A.H. / Google / Dec 19, 2018

What to Expect
Before a dental implant is placed, a thorough examination will be conducted by our dentists to assess the strength and health of the jawbone and gums. If the patient is a good candidate for dental implants, digital X-rays and physical impressions will help our dentists to determine the ideal location for the dental implants during the procedure. The individual will be put under local anesthesia and sedation if needed while our dentists place the titanium post into the jawbone. Over the course of 3 - 6 months, the jawbone and implant will fuse while the bone heals and once the dental implant is secure, the false tooth or teeth can be attached to the dental implant using a connector. Our dentists will adjust the dental implant and false teeth for a snug and secure fit.
Most patients experience little to no discomfort following their dental implants are finished, however some patients may have short-term discomfort and tenderness that can be relieved using an over-the-counter pain killer, such as Tylenol® or aspirin. To prolong the life of dental implants, patients should have a good home dental care routine that includes daily brushing, flossing, and anything recommended by the dentist. Regular appointments at Fairfield Dental Care and Orthodontics in Cypress, TX for dental cleanings and exams are also important to implant care. Dental implants can last a long time with correct care, however dental implants will eventually require repairs or replacement.
If dental implants are judged to be medically required, the patient's dental insurance plan will typically pay for some of the dental bill. However, elective dental implants are typically generally not paid by insurance plans. During the patient's consultation, the office staff of Fairfield Dental Care and Orthodontics can call about their insurance coverage and review payment methods and financing available through our office.

If you are missing one tooth, several teeth, or all of your teeth, dental implants are a long-lasting solution that look and feel natural. With dental implants, you don't need to care about false teeth loosening, what you eat, or messy glues, you can just grin and enjoy your beautiful new teeth. If you have lost teeth or you wear a dental crown, bridge or dentures, ask our dentists at Fairfield Dental Care and Orthodontics about the advantages of dental implants.
