Smile with unmatched security
Dr. Huff always goes the extra mile for the people of Kerrville. He is one of the few doctors in the area that offers the option of placing or restoring dental implants.
If your missing teeth are causing embarrassment, let our understanding team talk to you about the option of dental implants. We can replace your missing tooth or teeth with strong, secure, long-lasting dental implants.
What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are tooth root stand-ins that are surgically attached to the jawbone. Dr. Huff utilizes the latest advancements in implant technology with the Intra-Lock® implant system. Once secure, a fabricated tooth, or crown is fixed to the part of the implant that is above the gum line. Implants look and feel so close to a natural tooth, no one will suspect it is an implant.
Dental implants are attached to the jawbone and therefore are not removed for eating or cleaning like you would with some dentures.

If you are missing teeth, dental implants are a natural-looking way to get your smile back.
If you have had implants placed, but your crowns are damaged or worn and you need them restored—you are in the right place. Dr. Huff can quickly restore your implant with a crown.
What is the process of implant placement like?
Dr. Huff will first examine your mouth and make sure you are a healthy candidate for implants. As part of the assessment he will take a 3-D scan of your mouth, neck, and face. The 3-D images allow Dr. Huff to know exactly how much bone is present and if implants can work for you.
If you are a healthy candidate, you will be scheduled for at least two surgical visits. During your first visit, the root implant will be placed. Utilizing the 3-D images, Dr. Huff can guide the surgical procedure of implant placement with the highest level of precision available today.
For the next few months the implant will bond with the jawbone. Once the implant has healed and bonded with the bone the fabricated tooth will be attached.
