Dental Implants La Jolla

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.

Dental implants La Jolla are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or Periodontist - a specialist of the gums and supporting bone.  The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!

Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.

Reasons for dental implants:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
  • Restore a patient’s confident smile.
  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues.
  • Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.

What does getting dental implants involve?

The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months.

X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself onto the bone for up to six months. Depending on the type of dental implants La Jolla, a second surgery may be required in order to place the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place. With other implants the post and anchor are already attached and placed at the same time.

After several weeks of healing the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor.  Because several fittings may be required, this step may take one to two months to complete. After a healing period, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.

You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant.

Fusce sit amet varius tellus!

Nulla fringilla elit at orci auctor, sit amet tincidunt velit volutpat. Nulla ligula turpis, convallis sit amet ex in, vulputate blandit mauris. Praesent vitae elit nibh. Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis dis parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus. Quisque id efficitur est, vel viverra tortor. Proin porta elit id pharetra volutpat. Duis convallis purus quam, eget rhoncus erat posuere auctor. Aenean ultricies vitae tortor non cursus. Sed sed ex tincidunt, rhoncus neque eget, pulvinar ipsum. Morbi porttitor maximus viverra. Praesent finibus, lorem quis semper pharetra, elit eros faucibus libero, id feugiat elit neque quis sem. Phasellus semper imperdiet metus quis fringilla. Mauris porta varius laoreet:

  • Phasellus scelerisque nibh diam, non convallis libero
  • Maecenas molestie nibh
  • Nulla ligula turpis
  • Vestibulum consectetur ac turpis eu luctus

Careful consideration should be made when deciding on which implant system to go for. As the implants are titanium screws placed directly into the jawbone, only the best in terms of dental implant quality, dental surgeon's expertise, and technology should go into the whole process of dental implants placement. The procedure will involve not only a person's tooth (or teeth), but the jaw bone, and the whole face as well so there should be very little to no compromise in terms of the quality of materials used, as well as the whole treatment planning stage.
