Dental Implants Center Huntington Beach
Dental implants are one of the most effective way to replace teeth. Unlike other types of restorations, dental implants are designed to last a lifetime. They can be used to replace teeth that have been lost for just about any reason, and because they integrate with your body, they feel as natural as your own biological teeth. Our dental implants center in Huntington Beach can help you decide if dental implants are right for you.
After a tooth is lost, the bone that surrounded the tooth’s root begins to be resorbed since it is no longer needed. An implant is a biocompatible titanium device that fits into the jaw bone much like that natural tooth’s roots, and this helps keep the bone stable. It also helps keep the prosthetic tooth stable, and you will be able to eat, talk, laugh, and smile without worrying about your tooth slipping, clicking, or shifting out of place. Our Huntington Beach dental implants center can use implants to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or a smile full of missing teeth.
Huntington Beach Dental Implants Center
Only one of the dental professionals at our dental implants center in Huntington Beach can tell for sure if you are a candidate for dental implants. However, if you are missing a tooth, are in good dental health and good general health, you may just be a candidate. Most people are able to benefit from implants, and the 15-year success rate for the procedure is about 95 percent, which means that those who get implants still have them going strong 15 years later.
If our center determines that implants are right for you, you will begin with an in-depth treatment plan. This will include images, dental records and exams to ensure the bone density is adequate. The implant will be placed in a minor dental surgical procedure, and then the gums will be stitched to allow the bone to heal around the implant. This process can take from a few weeks to a few months. Once your bone has healed in a process called osseointegration, you will be ready to have your implant restored with a porcelain crown, dental bridge, or denture.
