What Are Dental Implants?
If you’re missing a tooth or teeth, dental implants are a recent innovation in dental technology that replaces lost and missing teeth. These replacements are so realistic that even you will think it’s a real tooth.
Dental implants have two main parts. A biocompatible titanium or “root” that they implant into your jaw and then the all natural, realistic looking porcelain crown that they sit on top of the implant above your gum to replace your tooth.
This functions as an actual tooth. The crown is durable and aesthetic and will last a long time. No one is going to guess that it’s a dental implant unless you tell them. The post will hold the crown where it’s inserted, and you can chew your food just as you normally would.
How Dental Implants Work
The roots of your teeth don’t just hold your teeth in place; they also work below your gums to renew the jaw and maintain the shape of your mouth. When a tooth is lost, the process stops in that area of the jaw. The bone will begin to reabsorb, and it will thin out.
Over the course of time, the integrity of your jaw bone will become compromised. Your other teeth may loosen and even shift their position. They may even begin to fall out. The more root structure that you loose, the more deterioration sets in. Eventually, you’ll have a sunken appearance like those who have lost all of their teeth do.
The titanium posts in the implant will work just as the roots of your teeth do. It will stimulate the bone and help your jaw bone to maintain the integrity of your mouth. It will also halt the loss of bone and teeth for the other teeth in your mouth.
Dr. Linda Makuta has the know how to place and to restore your teeth with dental implants. Dr. Makuta has had lots of training in surgically placing implants into the mouth. Everything is done in her Encino, CA dental office, and you can have the entire procedure done here. It just makes sense to have your procedure done where you already feel comfortable and know the dentist. It will save you a lot of time and you’ll feel more confident when you’re with a dentist that you already know and trust.
