Dental Implant Restorations
Dental implants are the ideal choice of treatment if you have missing teeth. They are designed to last a lifetime. A dental implant is a procedure that replaces a missing tooth with a titanium screw that is placed in the bone. As the bone heals the screw and bone fuse together, then a crown is placed on top to replace the missing tooth. Implants are the preferred course of treatment for a missing tooth compared to bridges and dentures.
In addition to loss of normal chewing function, missing teeth can cause other issues. Missing teeth can lead to the shifting and movement of other surrounding teeth. Also, over time missing teeth can lead to bone loss that can cause a noticeable physical change in facial structure.
It is important to highlight that tooth loss is common, but there is a permanent solution! Our doctors are ready to help you eat, speak and smile with confidence. For an initial consultation about implant restorations, please call 310-823-6400.
