One missing tooth can spoil the look of your smile. A few may make it difficult to speak clearly. With multiple missing teeth, you probably give up eating many of the foods you love. Less tangible changes are also occurring – diminishing bone that ages your face, a shift in how you are perceived by others, and loss of self-esteem. Dental implants, as a lasting tooth replacement solution, are comfortable, fully functional, and look completely natural. At Diamond Valley Dentist in Hemet, CA, Dr. Nathan Jergensen provides full implant placement and restoration services.
Each of your teeth has a root that reaches into jawbone, anchoring the crown – the visible part necessary for chewing. A dental implant is an artificial substitute for the root. Because it is made of a biocompatible material, the implant becomes fused to bone, serving as a sturdy foundation for a dental crown or other type of restoration.
Implant placement is a brief and well-planned oral surgery performed on site at Diamond Valley Dentist. It requires only a small opening in soft tissues, which closes quickly. Implant integration into bone takes place over several months. With contemporary bone grafting techniques (Dr. Jergensen can provide referral to a qualified oral surgeon), most people can be candidates for implants, even with existing bone loss.
Most commonly, individual missing teeth are replaced with implants. However, if you are missing a span of teeth, the doctor may recommend an implant retained bridge. A full arch of teeth can be replaced with an implant supported denture. Requiring as few as four implants per arch, this type of denture is locked in place, so it cannot rock, slip, or rub.
