Dental Implants in San Antonio
The modern way to replace missing teeth
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that replaces a natural tooth root in the jaw. A restoration, such as a porcelain crown, dental bridge, or denture can be fitted on top to give you all the strength and chewing power of real teeth. Implants are often used in cosmetic and restorative procedures to replace single or multiple teeth, or all of your teeth as in the All-On-4 procedure.
When dental implants were first introduced, healthy people with the right oral conditions were the only candidates for them. However, after fifty years of research, new technology has made the implant process suitable for just about anyone, and it is less invasive and safer than ever before.
Dental Implants in one location
Dr. Camacho has a great deal of experience and training in full-mouth reconstruction, including dental implant placement. He has done hundreds of full-mouth reconstruction cases. Dr. Camacho’s training in dental implantology allows him to do the entire implant procedure right in his office. In most cases there is no need for the patient to have to visit multiple offices.
Dental Implants look and feel like natural teeth
An implant consists of a crown and root, just like a natural tooth. The majority of implants are made of titanium, which is a metal that is particularly suited to integration with the bone.
Dental implants improve appearance, restore lost chewing ability and give self-confidence back to patients who are missing teeth. Dental implants can replace one, many, or all of your teeth. They are a revolutionary breakthrough for restoring smiles and improving lives.

Minimally Invasive Dental Implants
Dr. Camacho is proud to use OsteoReady Implants as one of his implant systems. OsteoReady has a higher amount of titanium than the majority of dental implants used today. OsteoReady also has many options to make getting dental implants more comfortable and less invasive for the patient, including their No-Drill Implant Procedure and their special implants made specifically for more difficult situations like placing implants in a narrow ridge or area of low bone density.
Are you a candidate for Dental Implants?
In the past, patients who had certain health conditions, like diabetes, or those who had too little bone structure, were considered too high of a risk and not viable candidates for dental implants. Thanks to advances in technology and modern bone grafting techniques, these patients can now safely be treated.
Dr. Camacho has decades of experience working with implants, including creating lifelike artificial teeth. Whether you need just a single tooth replaced, extensive teeth replacement, or full-mouth reconstruction, Dr. Camacho has the training and experience needed to get the job done right.
Permanent Teeth in Just one Day
Dr. Camacho along with a respected oral surgeon is proud to offer his patients the Permanent Teeth in a Day procedure. This procedure was developed in the 1990s as a solution for patients needing full arch restoration of the upper and/or lower jaws. Four implants are used to secure all teeth in place on an arch.
Patients get a high quality full tooth restoration in the shortest time possible, often without bone grafting. Patients with a minimum amount of bone structure are still candidates for the procedure as it utilizes a special implant placement procedure.
With Permanent Teeth in a Day, Dr. Camacho’s patients can leave the dental office with a full set of new replacement teeth within only one appointment! Click here to learn more about All-On-4.
An implant-supported bridge is another option to replace missing teeth. Bridges unlike conventional dentures are permanently fixed in place and give you the look and feel of natural teeth. And, unlike dentures, bridges are usually made of porcelain and not acrylic.
A bridge supported by implants is perfect if you have missing teeth or are going to need to have teeth extracted. Costs for several implants to replace every failed tooth can be greatly reduced with implant-supported bridges. If you have three to four missing teeth, for example, a bridge can be created by placing two implants and using them to anchor that bridge.
Dr. Camacho has extensive experience in all types of dental restoration procedures including multiple teeth replacement using implants and implant-supported bridges.
