Titanium Dental Implants Huntington Beach
For more than 50 years, titanium has been the metal of choice for biomedical implants. Titanium has been used in pacemakers, joint replacements, and dental implants. Its popularity is largely due to its biocompatibility. Considered the most biocompatible metal, titanium is inert inside the body and will remain strong throughout its life. Our expert in titanium dental implants in Huntington Beach can use titanium implants to replace lost teeth for a durable, lasting smile.
If you are a candidate for a dental implant, you will start with an in-depth consultation during which dental records including X-rays and 3D scans will be taken. We will explain each of your options and the implant process, which can take several months to complete. The implant will generally be placed at a later appointment. In most cases, this is done on an outpatient basis, and you will be able to go home to recover in comfort. Most people are back to their normal routine almost immediately.
Huntington Beach Titanium Dental Implants
The titanium implant is usually shaped like a rod or a screw, and it fits into the jaw just like your tooth roots once did. After our Huntington Beach titanium dental implants expert implants your new restoration, your body takes over the next part of the job. The jaw bone will begin to grow around the implant until the implant becomes a permanent part of the jaw. This can take a few weeks or a few months.
Once the titanium implant and jaw have fused, our expert in titanium dental implants in Huntington Beach will restore. We may use a dental crown, bridge or denture based on your needs and preferences. Because the implant is a part of your jaw, your restoration will be just as secure as your own natural teeth. You can bite, chew, and talk with it without fear. You can even brush and floss it just like you brush and floss your other teeth.
