Does a missing or severely damaged tooth make eating or talking a chore instead of a joy? Are you self-conscious smiling in public?
Our dentists at Bell Dental can bring back your smile and help prevent future tooth loss with expertly placed dental implants.
We use implants to restore a single tooth, a row of teeth, or a full arch at our Lake Jackson, TX, practice and bring back simple pleasures.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a small post, typically titanium, that is inserted into the jaw to act as an artificial tooth root. Dr. Brian K. Bell at Bell Dental in Lake Jackson, TX, uses advanced scanning and imaging technology for long-lasting results. Once a dental implant has been surgically placed, your own body secures it in place naturally by growing bone around it. The implant is then topped with an abutment, or connector piece, so it can support a restoration.
Dental implants can support an individual crown to replace a single tooth, a bridge for multiple teeth in a row, or dentures for a full arch of natural teeth. After our lifelike restorations are secured to the implant, they function just like the real thing. Denture wearers are especially thankful that they won't have to worry about their teeth slipping and embarrassing them. For patients, it's like having their natural teeth back again.

Why Patients Choose Us
Expertise in Advanced Dentistry
Implant dentistry is a highly technique-sensitive procedure that requires advanced training. Dr. Bell, a life-long learner, has completed post-graduate studies at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI Global), an international institute that draws dentists from around the world.
Technology for Optimum Results
Precise implant placement is essential for long-lasting results and requires the use of advanced technology to identify jawbone structures and assess bone density. Dr. Bell uses sophisticated 3D cone-beam imaging technology to pinpoint the best locations for implants. At the same time, he will identify the proper angle and depth for your implants.
Tooth loss carries a lot of emotional baggage for many patients. We show them that no matter how damaged their smiles are, we have techniques that can rebuild them and restore the freedom to smile confidently. Our team works hard to establish a relationship with each patient so they feel comfortable discussing their dental issues and mapping out a solution.
Your Comfort Is Our Priority
Dental implants require oral surgery, which we know concerns some people. We can assure you that our advanced techniques minimize discomfort. However, we understand that everyone perceives pain differently. If you are anxious or have difficulty sitting for long periods, Bell Dental in Lake Jackson, TX, offers sedation options for maximum comfort.

Dr. Bell has more than 20 years of experience. In addition to his advanced training at LVI Global, he belongs to prestigious organizations that focus on implant techniques, such as the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. The dentists at Bell Dental have earned a reputation for superior restorative dentistry in Lake Jackson, TX, and throughout Brazoria County.
Working with an expert is important when considering dental implants. Dr. Bell will carefully assess your mouth and go over your health to ensure implants are the right choice for you. Some patients lack the necessary bone density to support an implant. Dr. Bell can usually overcome that obstacle by using advanced implant techniques or performing a bone graft to strengthen your jaw.
Dental implants offer patients a number of solutions for missing teeth. To learn which ones can restore your smile, we suggest requesting an appointment at Bell Dental. You can send us a message online or call:

Is Bone Loss Keeping You From a Beautiful Smile?
All-on-4 Dental Implants for a Secure, Stunning Smile
People who have been missing teeth for a while often discover that bone loss makes implant-supported dentures out of the question, but Dr. Bell at Bell Dental in Lake Jackson, TX, has a potential solution in All-on-4® dental implants. This advanced method uses strategically placed implants to make the most of the bone in your jaw.
No Preparatory Steps
Patients who lack bone mass are often told they will need a bone graft to qualify for dental implants, a procedure that adds time and money to their goal. With All-on-4 implants, our dentist can often eliminate this extra step entirely.
Just Four Implants
A typical fixed denture requires six to eight dental implants and abutments. The All-on-4 method uses just four implants, which are placed at strategic angles that maximize support for the attached denture.
Because just four implants are needed with the All-on-4 method, the procedure is less invasive than traditional dentures, which require six or more implants to be inserted into the jawbone.
Insurance and Financing For Dental Implants
While dental implants themselves are not covered by insurance, implant-supported restorations are eligible for coverage. We accept most forms of dental insurance and also accept financing through CareCredit®, which can help you comfortably afford treatment with a low- or no-interest loan.
