The Benefits of Dental Implants

Are you in need of a dental implant from Trabuco Hill Dentistry?

Dental implant treatment isn't just a restorative procedure that can beautify your smile, but also a vital tool that provides your jawbone with the support necessary to remain strong. If you are interested in pursuing dental implant treatment to treat your tooth loss, your dentist in Mission Viejo, CA, Dr. Ami Kagalwala, is here to help.

What's a dental implant?

If you decide to receive a dental implant, here's what you need to know about the process:

  1. Your dentist applies a local anesthetic to numb the area.
  2. Any tooth remnants are removed and a titanium post is inserted into the jawbone.
  3. The dentist surgically closes the area and allows it to heal for a period of 3 to 6 months.
  4. When you return, your Mission Viejo dentist will insert an abutment, and place a crown over the abutment that matches the rest of your teeth.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

  • They look and function like natural teeth. Like natural teeth, dental implants have roots that anchored them to your jawbone. Dental implants achieve this by how their titanium makeup fuses to the rest of the jawbone. This makes implants feel natural, and the crown fastened to the post makes the implant look natural as well.
  • They are longest-lasting tooth replacements because they replace missing teeth and aren't removable like other appliances, they just need proper dental cared to last a lifetime. So, make sure that you brush and floss on a daily basis to make sure that your dental implant lasts a lifetime.
  • They prevent bone loss since they osseointegrate with your jawbone, reinforcing its structure. Dental implants also prevent your face prematurely aging or sinking. This is important, not just aesthetically, but also because a weak jaw is vulnerable to fractures if left untreated.
