Dental Implants at Beverly Dentistry in La Palma
There are many treatments that prevent people from ever facing the loss of a tooth. Education, preventive care, and restorative dentistry are helping more people keep their teeth for a lifetime. Still, there are factors that make tooth loss unavoidable, and when faced with these predicaments, patients need compassionate and expert care.
Beverly Dentistry highly recommends dental implant restorations for their amazing ability to restore normal function, provide lifelike tooth replacements, and maintain proper oral health. Serving people in La Palma, Cypress, Buena Park, and Cerritos, Dr. Beverly P. Gonzalez gives patients a second chance to smile with teeth that look and feel natural.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Implant supported restorations eliminate many of the drawbacks associated with other treatments for tooth loss. Patients are liberated from removable appliances that are prone to slipping and rub the fragile soft tissue in the mouth. The permanence of dental implants means there is no reliance on adhesive paste nor nightly soakings to disinfect dentures.
Dental implants when properly cared for last a lifetime, unlike dentures which often require replacing and adjusting over time. Dental implants look and feel like real teeth, which leave the palate unobstructed so speech and taste are unaltered.
How Dental Implants Restore Function and Beauty
Dental implants are biocompatible titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jaw bone, where after about four months, they fuse with the bone. This fusion is called osseointegration, and the growth of bone surrounding the implants is how the posts become strong anchors and new tooth roots for prosthetic crowns.
Implant posts can support replacements for a single tooth, a row of teeth, or a full arch of teeth. They have over a 95% success rate, and they have both health and aesthetic benefits. By providing stimulation to the jaw bone, they prevent it from shrinking and aging the appearance with a sunken oral structure. The crowns attached to the implant posts shine with the translucence of natural enamel. They are matched to surrounding dentition, and for full arch restorations, they can be customized to complement individual’s natural beauty and to suit their personal preferences.
Who is a Candidate for Implant Supported Restorations?
To be a candidate for dental implants, patients must have enough volume in their jaw bone to support a dental implant. In a very small percentage of patients, a procedure to augment the jaw with bone grafting may be necessary. This is an effective treatment that is highly successful in preparing patients for dental implant restorations.
