What are dental implants?

Dental implants replace missing teeth. They are made of 3 parts: the implant, the abutment, and the crown. The implant is placed into a patient's jaw bone and the abutment connects the implant to the crown to restore the appearance and functionality of the smile.

Dental implants are made from durable titanium that can last for years with proper maintenance and care. Once the crown is placed, the dental implant fits in seamlessly with your natural smile.

Why choose dental implants at Primavera Dental Group?

Dr. Homsi is a trained prosthodontist and is actively pursuing a fellowship in Prosthodontics at the prestigious University of Washington School of Dental Medicine. Because Prosthodontists specialize in the dental prosthetics, ie. dental crowns or arch of teeth, that complete the procedure, they can plan treatment that focuses on the result. This ensures you get a smile that looks natural and stays functional for the long-term. 

What to expect at your dental implant consultation


Dr. Homsi will conduct a thorough oral exam, which includes digital scans to evaluate your jaw bone density and overall oral health. Your Pflugerville dentist will review their findings with you and determine if you are a good candidate for implants. If dental implants are right for you, he will provide a tailored treatment plan for your placement and restoration procedures.

Oral Surgery & Implant Placement

Your oral surgery will be scheduled after your consultation. During the procedure, your doctor will make an incision in your gum line and insert the titanium implant. Guides are often used to ensure proper placement of the implant.

Healing & Osseointegration

After the implant has been placed, the healing and osseointegration process begins. This is where your jawbone and the titanium implant bond together. Healing from the surgery takes about two weeks, while osseointegration may take up to 6 months.

Crowns & Impressions

During osseointegration, Dr. Homsi will take impressions of your teeth so he can begin creating your custom prosthetic. He will work with you to color-match your crown or arch of teeth so that it fits seamlessly with your smile.

Restoration Application Procedure

Once healing and osseointegration is complete, your abutment is placed atop the implant which attaches the dental implant to your new crown. After your restoration procedure, you will walk out of our office with a complete smile.

Dental Implant Maintenace

Over time, your dental implant restoration may require maintenance or may need to be replaced due to natural wear and tear. Dr. Homsi will instruct you on how best to care for your implants and restorations, and will be there if a new restoration is necessary.

Dental Implant Options

Single-Tooth Implants

Single-tooth dental implants require only one dental implant to act as your tooth's root. The implant has 3 parts: the dental implant, the abutment, and the crown. These are typically the simplest types of implants to place and restore as they are only replacing a single tooth.


Mini implants have a similar structure to regular dental implants, but the implant itself is smaller. They are typically used in cases where the bone structure is less than what a normal dental implant needs to support it. They also do well in smaller spaces, such as anterior implants. Dr. Homsi will recommend the right type of dental implant for you — just know that we provide a variety of options to best serve your needs.

Full-Arch Implants

Full arch implants support an entire arch of teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, full-arch implants offer a more secure feel with no slipping or sliding. A full arch of teeth typically requires 4-6 dental implants, but Dr. Homsi will determine how many are required during your consultation and treatment plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

How painful is a dental implant?

Many people express concern about the potential pain associated with the dental implant procedure. However, the reality is that most patients report minimal discomfort during and after the procedure. At Primavera Dental Group, Dr. Moetaz Homsi ensures that the process is as painless as possible by using modern anesthesia techniques. The procedure itself is usually performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the area completely. This means you should not feel any pain during the implantation itself.

After the procedure, you may experience some discomfort, similar to other dental procedures. This can include minor swelling, bruising, or mild pain at the implant site. However, these symptoms are typically manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers and should subside within a few days. It's important to remember that everyone's pain tolerance and recovery is different, so experiences can vary.

Is there a downside to dental implants?

While dental implants have a high success rate and offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options, there can be potential downsides to consider. One of the main considerations is cost. Dental implants can be more expensive upfront than other options like dentures or bridges. However, they often prove to be more cost-effective in the long run due to their durability and low maintenance requirements.

Another potential downside could be the time commitment. The process of getting dental implants can be lengthy, often requiring several appointments over a few months. This is because the implant needs time to fuse with the bone in a process known as osseointegration before the final crown can be placed.

Lastly, as with any surgical procedure, there is a risk of complications such as infection, nerve damage, or sinus problems. However, these risks are relatively low and can be further minimized by choosing a skilled and experienced dental professional like Dr. Moetaz Homsi at Primavera Dental Group.

How long do dental implants last?

The longevity of dental implants can vary based on several factors, including the patient's overall health, oral hygiene habits, and the location of the implant in the mouth. However, with proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last many years and often for a lifetime.

The implant itself, which is made of titanium, is designed to fuse with your jawbone, making it a permanent part of your mouth. The crown, or the visible part of the tooth, can last 10-15 years before it may need replacement due to wear and tear.

Good oral hygiene practices, such as regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, can significantly extend the lifespan of your dental implants. Avoiding harmful habits like smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can also contribute to the longevity of your implants.

At Primavera Dental Group, Dr. Moetaz Homsi uses high-quality materials and advanced techniques to ensure the best possible outcome for your dental implants, giving you a durable and natural-looking solution to missing teeth.
