Missing teeth can affect not only your smile but also your oral health and overall well-being. Dental implants offer a long-term solution for those who have lost one or more teeth. Dr. Dean Garcia, Dr. Ryan Conkle and Dr. Jeff Buizastrow in Laguna Hills offer dental implants solutions to help restore your smile and improve your quality of life.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed in the jawbone. Moreover implants support a replacement tooth or bridge.
Made of titanium, or other non metal biocompatible materials, the post fuses to jaw bone over time. Firstly this creates a sturdy foundation. Secondly that foundaton is permanent.
Dental Implant Placement
The dental implant procedure involves several steps. First, a thorough examination is performed to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
If you have any underlying oral health issues, such as gum disease, they must be treated before the implant procedure can be performed.
Once Dr. Dean Garcia, Dr. Ryan Conkle and Dr. Jeff Buizastrow have cleared you for the procedure, the implant is surgically placed into the jawbone.
A temporary crown may be placed on top of the implant while it heals and fuses with the bone. This can take several months, depending on your individual case.
After the implant has fused with the bone, an abutment is placed on top of the implant. This serves as a connector for the replacement tooth. A custom-made replacement tooth or bridge is then attached to the abutment.
Why Dental Implants
Dr. Dean Garcia, Dr. Ryan Conkle and Dr. Jeff Buizastrow explain that dental implants offer many benefits over other tooth replacement optionss.
Unlike dentures, which can slip or cause discomfort, implants are securely anchored in the jawbone and function just like natural teeth. They also help to prevent bone loss in the jaw, which can occur when teeth are missing.
Implants are also more durable than other options and can last a lifetime with proper care. They are easy to care for, requiring only regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.
