Thanks to advances in cosmetic dentistry, patients who are missing a tooth or multiple teeth can now have their smile completely restored with dental implants.ﾠ In the hands of a highly experienced cosmetic dentist dental implants can look and feel just as natural as the teeth you were born with.ﾠ
A dental implant is an artificial, titanium tooth root that is surgically implanted into the jaw bone.ﾠ After a period of months the dental implant fuses with the gum tissue and bone.ﾠ The process is then completed by attaching an artificial restoration, such as a crown, to the top of the dental implant.ﾠ Patients immediately regain full mobility and function of their teeth as well as the confidence to smile again.
After a careful assessment of your teeth, your San Diego cosmetic dentist will discuss with you your smile goals and determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.ﾠ The ideal candidate should be in good general and oral health and have enough bone structure to support the implant.
Dental implants require the same oral care as your natural teeth do.ﾠ In order to ensure the longevity of your dental implants it's important to brush and floss daily and visit your dentist on a regular basis.
