Benefits of Dental Implants
Besides improving the esthetics of your smile, dental implants provide many benefits to your dental and overall health. Dental implants not only replace your missing tooth, but replaces the root of the tooth as well. Once a tooth is removed, the jaw bone that once held that tooth begins to resorb. Over time this bone loss can affect surrounding teeth and can create a very weakened jaw bone. Thankfully, we have an implant dentist near you who can help. When dental implants are placed, replacing the tooth roots, your jaw bone is then preserved and any further resorption is stopped.
Missing a single tooth is a very common issue that most people will face in their lifetime. While missing a back tooth may not affect the appearance of your smile, it will affect your dental health and possibly your TMJ health down the road. When a tooth is missing, the surrounding teeth begin to shift and tilt to fill that space. This can create unwanted wear to your teeth, super-eruption of teeth, and put extra force on your TMJ joint which can be very painful. Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant, eliminates these issues keeping surrounding teeth strong and healthy.
Fortunately, your entire tooth replacement procedure is completed at our dental clinic (Pacific Beach) with a team you know and trust.
Removable partials and full dentures used to be the gold standard for replacing multiple teeth. But with dental implants in San Diego, you will never have to worry about anyone seeing you without your teeth. Dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth. Also, there are several options in replacing multiple teeth such as bridges and implant retained dentures.
How Do Implants Work?
Dental implants (Pacific Beach) are composed of three parts: a screw-like implant, an abutment, and a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, or implant-supported denture. The screw-like implant is made of durable titanium that will naturally fuse to the bone tissue anchoring the implant in place. While this process takes a few months to complete, the strength you gain with an implant is just as strong if not stronger than a natural tooth.
Once the implant has fully integrated into the bone, the abutment will be the attachment that holds the prosthetic crown permanently in place. Drs. Altrock and Fabb take the time to design your implant crown with exact detail to give you the most natural-looking and feeling replacement tooth. They use the highest quality dental ceramic that will perfectly match surrounding teeth.
