You shouldn’t treat missing teeth as a surface issue if you suffer from one or several missing teeth. Teeth loss makes you more likely to suffer from dental disease, alters your speech, and can cause problems with your jaw. Here at Dental Implant San Diego, we provide dental implants to solve teeth loss. Surgically implanted into the jawbone, an implant is attached to a crown, bridge, or false tooth for a consistent appearance and a comfortable fit.
Meet with a San Diego Smile Center dentist to determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. Our board-certified surgeons use advanced techniques and instruments to provide implant surgery and ensure each client leaves with a beautiful smile. Visit our comfortable facility in Camino Ruiz Suite, San Diego, and set up an appointment for a dental implant consultation.
What are the long-term effects of dental implants?
Dental implants are considered a long-term solution when properly cleaned and maintained. Dental implants can replace a single tooth, several teeth, or entire arches of teeth. People who have conventional caps or bridges but are not happy with their appearance or fit may choose this solution. As with original teeth, dental implants can be kept clean with daily flossing and brushing and biannual dental visits.
Our dental team at San Diego Smile centre will evaluate your teeth, gums, bite, and jawbone while assessing your overall dental health in an initial appointment. You should be aware that implant dentistry is not recommended for people who smoke, have health issues, or are pregnant. A computer tomography scan (CT scan) is used to examine the jawbone hardness to ensure enough strong bone for an implant to be successful. When there is insufficient bone volume, a bone graft might be performed before a dental implant.
What Is the Procedure for Dental Implants Surgery?
Patients who are undergoing implant preparation are given local anaesthesia. Dentists can provide patients who suffer from dental phobias with other sedation methods. During the first visit, a dental surgeon will make a tiny opening in the gum. After the dental implant is securely implanted into the jaw and some of the posts are visible above the gumline, the incision is closed.
All-on-4® dental implants are an excellent option for replacing an entire arch of teeth at San Diego Smile Centre. They are placed at four predetermined locations on the high or lower arch of the mouth. They are then attached to posts that support the complete arch of teeth. A team member at Dental Implants San Diego can provide more details on state-of-the-art All-on-4 dental implants.
What Is the Healing Process for Dental Implants?
Dental implants integrate with the bone and gums over the following months. At Dental Implants San Diego, we will provide you with a short-team restoration to protect the titanium post as it mends. Bruising and swelling will be expected after a titanium post is placed. Afterwards, you can visit your regular dentist for permanent restoration after the dental posts are fused into the jawbone.
