Dental Implants in Katy, TX
Sometimes life happens, leaving you with one or more missing teeth. Maybe it was because of a health concern or maybe it was due to an injury, but whatever the case, you can still have a beautiful, full smile with dental implants. At Heritage Dental in Katy, TX, our dentist, Dr. Nguyen, can provide dental implant surgery to help patients reclaim their smiles.
The Basics of Dental Implant Surgery
Compared to other tooth-replacement options like bridges or dentures, dental implants are designed in such a way that they closely mimic the structure, function, and feel of natural teeth. During dental implant surgery, we place a biocompatible post into your jawbone, which acts like the artificial tooth root. On top of that base, we connect the replacement tooth that matches the appearance of your other teeth.
Dental Implants FAQs
What is the difference between dental implants and implant-supported dentures?
Dental implants and implant-supported dentures are based on the same idea of placing implants into the jaw to support replacement teeth, but there are some slight differences. For one, implant-supported dentures use just a few posts to replace an entire arch of teeth. On the other hand, simple tooth implants each have their own post. Which treatment might be right for you really depends on how many teeth you’re replacing.
Are dental implants covered by insurance?
Whether or not dental implants are covered by insurance depends on your specific provider and plan. It also may depend on the specifics of your case, such as whether or not you’re replacing a tooth due to an accident. To figure out whether your insurance covers the cost of dental implant surgery, we recommend contacting your provider directly. You can also reach out to our Katy office so our team can help you get more information about affording dental implants.
How long do dental implants usually last?
Dental implants are quite durable. How long they last varies from patient to patient depending on how good that person is about taking care of their oral health. Generally speaking, they’ve been shown to last many years, sometimes even more than a decade or two!
What Our Patients Say About Us
Wow this place is amazing. The staff and doctor are so friendly. They really know how to take care of their patients. One thing I noticed that no other dentist have done was that the doctor checked my neck for any lumps
or signs of cancer. The only thing I would say is that the wait to be seen is a little longer than expected but it’s worth it. Trust me. It smells good and it’s very clean and sanitized. I finally found my doctor. I am a
very picky person and believe me they have met my expectations!
This is so great place to go see your teeth! This would be a recommended dental place to check your teeth. Everyone here is very kind and careful, they all pay attention. Thank you to Jessica for cleaning my son’s teeth,
get nice as well. The place is very clean! So I give this a 5 stars, Thank for everyone!
Staff was very nice and professional! They took care of my problem the same day. I was so grateful! Will be definitely going back for my check ups
It was love at first visit. I even transferred my baby here. We love Dr Chi ! She is great with my teen and baby. The staff is patient and friendly.
Everyone that I encountered at Heritage was wonderful especially the young lady that performed my X-ray exam and deep cleaning…she made me feel very comfortable and relaxed and that I was in very capable hands! I
totally trusted her with the services that Heritage was providing to me,and I have another appointment there later this month. Heritage Dental has a very clean,professional,yet comfortable and trusting environment which
is so important for a new patient like me! I recommend Heritage to anyone who’s looking for a great dentistry with a great staff and wonderful environment….Heritage is that dentistry.

I went there for removal of my wisdom tooth. The whole operation was smooth and I felt almost no pain thanks to anaesthesia. The prescription they gave also make the recovery process much easier. It’s currently 12 hours
since my extraction, my clot is forming normally and I’m completely comfortable except for a few times where I need to talk.
