At Dr. Clementine C. Ignacio, DMD, dental implants represent the most advanced and enduring tooth replacement option, offering a transformative solution for those seeking long-lasting dental restoration. These titanium posts are surgically embedded into the jawbone, acting as artificial tooth roots, and serve as a solid foundation for attaching natural-looking crowns or dentures.
Dental implants provide unparalleled stability and durability, often lasting a lifetime with proper care. These benefits make implants a remarkable choice for individuals looking to regain the full functionality, aesthetics, and confidence of a complete set of teeth.
Beyond their extraordinary longevity, dental implants also contribute to improved oral health, preventing bone loss and preserving the integrity of adjacent teeth, setting them apart as the gold standard in tooth replacement options.
Types of Dental Implants
The most common type of dental implant in Anaheim is the endosteal implant. These implants are placed in the jawbone and fuse with the bone over time. This makes them incredibly stable and secure. They are also the most natural looking and feeling of the different implant options.
The subperiosteal implant is placed on top of the jawbone and under the gum line by our dentist in Anaheim. This implant is a good option for patients who do not have sufficient bone height or width for traditional implants. A metal framework is attached to the jawbone to support the false tooth. This type of implant is also recommended for patients who cannot wear dentures because the dentures cause sore spots in the gums.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. With dental implants, you can regain your confidence. They look and feel like natural teeth, so no one will be able to tell that you have them.
Better Oral Health
When you have gaps in your teeth, it can be challenging to clean those areas properly. This can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Dental implants allow you to brush and floss normally, which can help prevent these problems.
Preserve Your Jawbone’s Health
When you lose a tooth, your jawbone begins to deteriorate. Without stimulation from the roots of your teeth, the bone tissue in your jaw begins to break down. This can cause your face to appear sunken or aged prematurely. Fortunately, dental implants can prevent this bone loss by stimulating the bone like a natural tooth root would.
If you're missing one or more teeth, dental implants offer a permanent solution, enhancing your appearance and oral health. Get in touch with Dr. Clementine C.
