A missing tooth alters the aesthetics of your smile and even affects how you chew food and speak. But by placing a dental implant in Bellaire, Texas, our dentist at Stepp Family Dentistry can restore your smile and its functions. Unlike other restoration options, this one has a post that acts like a stable tooth root. Surgical placement of implant will be performed by board certified oral surgeon or periodontist via referral. You can see if you are eligible for dental implants when you set up an appointment with Dr. Cauleen Stepp.
