Dental implants are replacements for missing teeth. They are a terrific innovation in dentistry, making ill-fitting and uncomfortable dentures and bridges a thing of the past. Dr. Hughes can help replace missing or lost teeth with permanent implants that will look and feel like your natural teeth.

Dr. Hughes has extensive advanced training in dental restorations, and has helped hundreds of patients replace teeth with dental implants. He is able to achieve a level of comfort and aesthetics with dental implants that will leave you feeling as if you have simply recovered your own natural tooth.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are made up of three parts:
- A special surgical-grade titanium post that is inserted surgically into the jawbone
- A strong ceramic crown in the exact dimensions of your tooth
- An abutment that connects the below the surface post to the crown
If you decide to get a dental implant in Stafford, Dr. Hughes will plan your treatment every step of the way. As a top implant dentist in Stafford, Dr. Hughes will place the implant post at our office.
