Our team can use oral surgery to not only extract teeth, but to also replace them with advanced implant dentistry. These can offer a durable and long-lasting replacement option that looks natural too! In today’s blog, your Newhall. CA, dentist talks about the process of guiding your new dental implants into place.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are very different from traditional bridges and dentures. They aren’t held in place with clasps, suction, or crowns. Instead, they are composed of a screw-like structure made from biocompatible titanium. Which means once we surgically insert them into your jaw, they’re accepted as natural roots. This helps stimulate the growth of jawbone structure to prevent the gradually loss of mass and density. This means your jaw ridge doesn’t change shape, a complication that necessitates the periodic replacement of bridges and dentures. Your new prosthetics will look and function like natural teeth!
Placing Your New Teeth with CT Technology
The angle and position of them is important for ensuring they can secure a new tooth or denture, and that they stimulate the growth of jawbone structure to enable them to last decades instead of just a few years. Which is why we use advanced digital imaging to guide them into place! Using cone beam computed tomography, we will create a 3D digital model of your smile, including the roots, oral structures, jaw, and even sinus cavities and nerve tissues. We then plan the placement in detail and using technology to guide the posts into their correct position and angle. Once the area heals, or sometimes in the same visit, we can attach the prosthetic that completes your new teeth.
Restoring Your New Teeth
For an individual tooth, we can attach a crown. The restoration is custom-made to ensure not only a lifelike appearance that blends with your smile, but to provide a durable and dependable chewing surface too, and a balanced bite. For multiple missing teeth, we could use more than one post to secure a ridge, partial, or even a full set of dentures, all of which will last longer than the traditional options. If you have any questions about how we replace missing teeth and ensure a smile that looks good, then contact our team today. There is still time to see us and get started in this process, also putting your 2022 dental insurance benefits to use before they expire at the end of the year.
