Why Would I need to Get Dental Implants?

If you experience tooth loss or tooth extraction, dental implants are likely the most practical and lasting solution in order to restore your smile. It’s a common procedure for people who lose a tooth and prefer not to go through the slipping and clicking of traditional dentures.

Why Dental Implants over Dentures?

Unlike a multitude of alternate tooth replacement options, dental implants will not slip or make odd noises while you speak, laugh or eat, which will help you feel more comfortable in your everyday life. California Dental Implants Specialists provides dental implants as a healthy option to our patients, because dental implants will help to maintain the shape and mass of the jawbone, keeping the facial structure intact.

What Are Implants Made of?

Your dental implant will consist of a metal post that is placed into your jawbone that has an abutment (also made of metal) that is either built in or attached to the end of it, in order to connect to your porcelain crown.

How Long Does the Implant Process Take?

Of course this varies from case to case. Generally, an initial consultation will be required to determine candidacy for the dental implant procedure. Then another visit will consist of placing the implant into your jawbone, which will need time to heal and bond. An individual tooth, an implant-supported dental bridge, or dentures containing multiple teeth will then be attached to your abutment.

Where Can I Find a Specialist

Do I Need to Replace a lost molar?

The answer is yes. Just because people cannot see your missing tooth, this doesn’t mean that it’s not doing other damage to you. Missing teeth will affect your bone matter in your jaw, because there will be a lack of stimulation in that spot that your bone experiences due to your tooth shifting while you speak and chew. This lack of stimulation can lead to additional loss of bone mass and additional lost teeth. Your teeth will also crowd and shift due to the open space a missing tooth creates.
