Restore Your Smile!


If you are missing teeth, you may be a candidate for dental implants! An implant replaces your entire tooth, producing a result that looks, feels and functions naturally to improve your oral health as well as give you back a beautiful smile. Our general dentists and team provide both your implant placement procedure and the implant restoration to complete your treatment. We welcome you to contact our office for more information about dental implants in Conroe and Montgomery, Texas, and schedule your consultation with Dr. Timothy Gardner or Dr. Todd Leiker.

Whether you are missing a single tooth, several teeth or an entire arch of teeth, dental implants are a long-lasting and stable tooth replacement option that our team can use to restore your smile. Made of two parts, the implant post and the implant restoration, this restorative option can replace both the visible and invisible part of a missing tooth. The process begins when our dentists surgically places the implant post into your jaw where the missing tooth once sat, ensuring that your restoration has a stable foundation. After placement, there is a necessary healing period during which your biocompatible implant post begins bonding to your bone in a process known as osseointegration.

Once the implant post has been placed and healed, it will be time to place your implant restoration. Your restoration acts as the replacement for the visible crown of your missing tooth or teeth, and depending on your specific circumstances, our team may recommend a single dental crown, a dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture. Whatever your circumstances, your restoration will be custom fit to your smile to ensure maximum comfort, beauty and function. In total, the dental implant will look and feel juts like your natural teeth. With proper care, your implant can last the rest of your life. To learn more, feel free to call or visit

Old Dentures Versus New Implant-Supported Dentures

Conventional Dentures

Our most economic option, the conventional denture is a natural-appearing tooth replacement with a pink base. Conventional dentures fit to the gums with the help of adhesive. They may be refitted or replaced as needed.

  • Adhesive needed to secure the dentures
  • Restricts ability to chew
  • Palate is covered
  • May affect gag reflex
  • Poor ability to taste food
  • Easy to clean daily
  • Loosens over time
  • Can cause difficulty speaking
  • Limits eating fruits and veggies
  • Loss of jawbone and muscle tone

Snap-On Dentures

More stable than the conventional denture, snap-on dentures offer natural-appearing replacement teeth and a pink base with attachments. These attachments are retained by metal posts in the jawbone, allowing you to snap in and snap out for daily cleaning.

  • No adhesive required
  • Unrestricted chewing
  • Less bulky (palate uncovered)
  • Improved taste of food
  • Easy to clean daily
  • Long-term retention
  • Some mobility of denture
  • Improved speech ability
  • Easier to eat fruits and veggies
  • Improved facial support
  • Preserves jawbone

Fixed Hybrid Implants

As a long-term solution, the fixed hybrid restoration allows natural-appearing teeth and gums secured permanently onto metal posts in the jawbone. Your fixed hybrid restoration may only be removed by a dental professional.

  • No adhesive necessary
  • Strongest ability to chew
  • Not bulky and most natural feel
  • Requires diligent cleaning
  • Long-term retention
  • No movement of denture
  • Can speak confidently
