Implant Restoration in Manteca CA
Restore your mouth with dental implants if you are missing one or more of your teeth. Dealing with empty spaces in your mouth can cause you much frustration on a day-to-day basic. From trouble speaking clearly to uncomfortable chewing, this dental issue affects your ability to function socially and physically. You may also feel embarrassed by your smile. Dr. Damle can dramatically improve your oral health, comfort, and appearance with dental implants.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are permanent prosthetics that replace missing teeth, one tooth at a time. These prosthetics have more than one component. First, a titanium post, which replaces your natural tooth’s roots, is surgically placed into your jawbone. Once the post fuses with your bone for full stability, your dentist will top the post with a custom-fit crown. Your dentist can replace a single tooth, several teeth in a row, or teeth spread out across your top or bottom arch.
What Happens During Dental Implant Surgery?
Dr. Damle will first fully examine your mouth. She will determine whether your jawbone is strong enough to support the titanium posts. You and your dentist will discuss your oral health history, while she answers your questions about dental implants, the procedure, and your concerns. Precise measurements for successful implant placement will rely on our technology. Dr. Damle and our team will take images of your oral structure, using digital X-rays.
Once you have the green light for dental implant surgery, you will come into the office and receive a local anesthetic on and around the target area. Dr. Damle will surgically place the titanium posts in place. Your healing time will take up to four months. Dr. Damle will monitor your progress along the way, and you may wear a temporary crown over the implant post until healing is sufficient for a permanent restoration.
What Are Dental Implant Benefits?
At Aura Family Dental, we offer a variety of options for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants offer benefits that go above and beyond what dentures and bridges offer. However, because every patient has a unique set of needs and circumstances, we suggest you speak with Dr. Damle to discuss all of your options before making a decision. If you are looking for a permanent solution to missing teeth and are still weighing your choices, consider the following benefits of dental implants:
- Implants can replace a single tooth, or several teeth in any configuration, unlike bridges. Bridges only replace missing teeth in a row.
- These prosthetics offer the greatest stability for the replacement of teeth because they fuse to your jawbone.
- Implants offer a long-lasting solution
- Filling in missing teeth with dental implants restores your smile for improved eating, speaking, and a beautiful appearance.
- Dental implants help prevent teeth shifting, which leads to misalignment and uncomfortable chewing.
- Implants help preserve the density of your jawbone, a significant factor in avoiding premature face wrinkling and sagging.
