Dental implants don’t need crowns, clasps, or suction to stay in place. Instead, we insert them into the jawbone like natural tooth roots. In today’s blog, we’re going to look at this process in depth, and explain the benefits of addressing tooth loss with implant dentistry. Find out when you should contact your Newhall, CA, about replacing missing teeth!
Planning Your Treatment
First, we’re going to use advanced Cone Beam 3D scanning technology to carefully create detailed images of your teeth, roots, jawbone, and oral structures. Using these materials, we can help choose the best area to place your new implants. After all, since these act as new tooth roots, they need to be able to absorbs daily bite forces and provide a dependable chewing surface. Once we plan the placement process, we move on to adding your new tooth roots.
Guiding the Process and Osseointegration
Each dental implant is made from titanium, a biocompatible material that bonds with the jawbone tissue. We insert them into jawbone itself, using advanced technology to guide the process and ensure we place them in the optimal area of your jawbone. Then osseointegration will take place, which bond them with the jawbone and ensures they have the potential to last for decades, possibly even a lifetime.
Restoring Your New Teeth
After we insert your new roots, we will focus on the visible portion of your new tooth or teeth. For an individual one, we attach an abutment that holds a dental crown in place. We custom-make the crown to ensure it blends with your smile seamlessly, and the materials will be able to absorb daily bite forces. If you have lost several teeth, then the next step may involve creating a bridge or a denture, that we attach to the new dental implants. These prosthetics will never need to be removed for cleaning or soaking, and they can last for several years with proper care and attention.

We know how vital a full smile is for our appearance and overall health, and our team is ready to help you through each step of the process!
