Call Today to Schedule Your Teeth Cleaning!
An implant is a small post made of titanium that is used to replace the root of your tooth. Implants are inserted into the jawbone, in which they become completely fused. Dr. Wall attaches crowns, bridges or removable dentures to these dental implants to replace missing teeth and help recreate the aesthetics, comfort and function of your teeth.
How Are Implants Used to Replace Missing Teeth?
Dr. Wall and his team evaluate your overall health and the health of your mouth to determine if you are an implant candidate. After the implant has been placed, it will be left for several months until the gum and bone are healed and strong enough to support dentures or a crown.
How Soon Can a Supported Denture or Crown Be Fitted?
For routine cases, it can take anywhere from four to six months for the gum and bone to heal. Dr. Wall determines the healing time based on your overall well-being and oral health.
What Happens Next?
Most dental implants can be cleaned by brushing and flossing in just the same way as natural teeth.
In some areas, however, you may need special items, including the following:
- Special floss
- Interdental brushes
- Or other cleaning aids to maintain good oral hygiene
Daily oral hygiene may be a little more complex around implants than around your natural teeth. Dr. Wall may instruct you to schedule more frequent checkups to help maintain dental implants.

Take Home Whitening
Our spearmint flavored, crystal clear gel take home whitening solutions contain a unique blend of soothers, conditioners and water to reduce sensitivity. The gel is applied to custom-made trays (similar to a mouth guard) that you wear whenever you want: at night or any time during the day. Dr. Wall and his dental professionals will recommend the exact product to suit your teeth and lifestyle.
We specialize in cosmetic dentistry that improves the health and appearance of your smile. Cosmetic procedures can improve your ability to bite, speak, eat and drink, in addition to just making you feel more confident about the appearance of your teeth. All these factors also affect your overall health.
Sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates, these are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored porcelain. This technology was designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve the appearance of your smile. Veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth, changing their color, shape, size and/or length.
Quickly Improve the Appearance of Your Smile if Your Teeth Are:
- Worn down
- Chipped or broken
- Misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped
- Have gaps between them
Contact us today at (325) 944-2519 for a consultation to learn if dental veneers are right for you.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges are common prosthetic devices that cannot be removed like dentures. Crowns and bridges are cemented onto current teeth or implants and can only be removed or replaced by a dentist.
How Do Dental Crowns Work?
A dental crown is used to cover or cap a damaged tooth to improve its appearance, shape or alignment. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide shape and structure. Porcelain or ceramic crowns can be matched to the current color of your teeth for a more natural look. Other materials available are gold and metal alloys, acrylic materials and ceramic substances. Alloys are often stronger than porcelain and may be recommended for back teeth.
Dr. Wall may recommend a crown for the following reasons:
- Replace a filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
- Restore a fractured tooth
- Attach a bridge
- Cover a dental implant
- Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
How Do Bridges Work?
A bridge may be considered if you are missing one or more teeth. Gaps cause remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. Imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to bone loss.
Bridges are meant to cover the space where teeth are missing. They are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding empty space. As with crowns, you have a choice of different materials for bridges. Dr. Wall can help you decide which to use, based on the location of the missing teeth, their function, aesthetic considerations and cost. Porcelain and ceramic bridges can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.
Contact our office at (325) 944-2519 with any questions you may have about dental crowns or bridges.
Tooth-colored fillings are generally made from durable plastics called composite resins and are similar to your natural teeth. The fillings are less noticeable and more attractive looking than other traditional types of fillings.
Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings
Some of the advantages of having tooth-colored fillings include being able to smile, talk and eat with confidence. Tooth-colored fillings are compatible with dental sealants.
You can take care of a tooth-colored filling the same way you take care of any other filling: brush, floss and visit your dentist. A filling will last longer with good oral hygiene. The dentist will regularly check your fillings for color change or unusual wear and inform you if you need repair or replacement.

Switch to Sonicare
Dr. Wall and his talented team of professionals fully support the Sonicare line of electronic toothbrushes for your optimal oral health. Their fantastic products provide a dynamic clean and remove more plaque than manual toothbrushes and other electric toothbrushes. We suggest Sonicare for every member of your family, including kids.
Gingivitis is an infection of the gums. With proper brushing and flossing habits, you can help to reverse gingivitis before it advances to later stages that can result in tooth loss and may even affect your overall health.
- Healthy gums are firm, pink and don’t bleed.
- Gingivitis: gums begin to get red and puffy and may bleed during brushing or flossing.
- Periodontitis: pockets form and the underlying bone is damaged. Gums often recede and begin to separate from the teeth.
- Advanced Periodontitis: pockets deepen and there is further destruction of the underlying bone.
How can the dentist help?
- Gingivitis can be treated with a thorough professional cleaning and effective oral hygiene care.
- Periodontitis may require “deep cleaning” or “root planing” by a dentist or hygienist.
- Advanced periodontitis often requires surgery. To treat the infection, the bone may need to be reshaped and the gum tissue surgically repositioned. Left untreated, the bone and tissue supporting the teeth are destroyed and teeth may eventually need to be removed.
- Patented Sonic technology and dynamic cleaning action drive fluid forces to remove plaque in hard-to-reach areas.
- Reduces bleeding sites by up to 71% in just four weeks.
- Clinically proven to improve gingival health in only two weeks.
It’s never too early to establish a good oral health program for your child.
- Brush your young child’s teeth after breakfast and at night before bed.
- Remember that younger children do not have the manual dexterity required to brush teeth effectively.
- Use floss every day to clean between your child’s teeth.
- If your water supply is not fluoridated, or if your family uses purified water, ask the dentist about fluoride.
- Make brushing fun by making a checklist or colorful sticker calendar for your child to track their tooth-brushing habits.
Encourage healthy oral care habits through every brushing phase.
- Support your child’s need to brush on their own as they grow.
- Understand that while they brush independently, it doesn't mean they are brushing effectively.
- Purchasing Sonicare for Kids will make brushing easier, gentler and more effective than manual brushing.
- Stay on top of your child’s oral health – schedule regular checkups.
Sonicare benefits for kids:
- Removes significantly more plaque than Oral-B Stages 4 manual toothbrush, Crest SpinBrush and Colgate children’s battery toothbrush in children ages seven to 10.
- Proven safe and gentle on gums for children age four and older.
- Features designed to help kids brush better and longer.
