Why Dental Implants?

Missing teeth can result in daily inconveniences. You may find it difficult to eat and talk. It may even make you conscious of your smile. With all these hurdles considered, cosmetic problems can actually affect your oral health.

What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are a popular solution for missing teeth, closest in appearance and functionality to the real thing. A dental implant procedure involves having a hole drilled into the jaw bone at the site of a missing tooth. A titanium post is then inserted into the bone. Over the course of three to six months, the jaw bone will bond to the post during the healing process.

While there are several options for dealing with gaps in your mouth due to a lost tooth, dental implants offer one of the most promising alternatives. There are different types of dental implants in Westminster, providing you with the flexibility to choose the best tooth replacement solution for your problem.

Implant FAQ's

What’s the difference between dentures, bridges, and dental implants?

Dentures involve having a complete or partial set of artificial teeth. They are generally the last resort when there has been extensive tooth loss. A bridge will fill the gap for one tooth or several adjacent teeth. Caps are placed on neighboring teeth and a false tooth is held in place. In many cases, the bridge can cause discomfort, irritating the gums. Dental implants involve the insertion of a titanium post into the jaw bone. Once healing has occurred and the bone grafts to the post, an artificial tooth, or crown, is attached to the post. This is a good solution when you only need to replace one or a few teeth. Dental implants have also been found to be helpful in securing dentures, making them more comfortable for patients.

Are dental implants removable and do they look natural?

They are made of a durable material that is as effective as a healthy tooth. We will carefully match the color of your crown to your other teeth, taking a mold of your teeth in order to create a good match.

How long is the process to get dental implants?

After the root replacement is inserted, it will take three months for it to bond with the bone. During that time a secure replacement tooth will be made for you to wear until the final teeth are made. The total process can range from three to six months. Throughout the process you will always have a secure replacement tooth.

What are the risks associated with getting dental implants?

As with any type of surgery, there are potential risks. However, patients rarely experience problems. Possible risks include infection, nerve damage, damage to neighboring teeth or gum tissue, and sinus problems. Individuals with underlying health conditions may experience complications and should discuss their particular situation with their dentist.

How long do dental implants last and how do I care for them?

Dental implants can last a lifetime if they are well-cared for. Care for dental implants is the same as for the rest of your teeth. You should always maintain an excellent oral hygiene regimen. Visit the dentist regularly and make sure your implants are carefully evaluated. If you keep your mouth healthy, you should have your implants for the duration.
