Not sure if dental implants are right for you? Here are some reasons to consider dental Implants:
• To restore a confident smile.
• To restore normal chewing, speech, and digestion.
• To replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
• To enhance or restore facial tissue that has sunken in due to missing teeth.
• To provide a stable and permanent solution to replace your missing tooth or teeth.
Restoring Your Smile With Dental Implants
Many tooth replacement options only replace the missing tooth, but neglect the importance of the tooth root. A prosthetic tooth without a root can restore chewing capability and look pleasing, but may lead to dental complications down the road. Without proper stimulation from the tooth root, the jawbone beneath the missing tooth space begins to deteriorate, causing the gums around the adjacent teeth to recede and become exposed to greater decay.
Additionally, if the jawbone deteriorates too much, a bone graft may be needed if you wish to undergo a dental implant procedure in the future. Therefore, if you need to restore your smile with dental implants, our Ventura dental implant dentists at Woodside Dental Care will agree there is no better time than now to begin the process.
Receiving Dental Implants in Ventura
The full dental implant process takes approximately six months, although it is important to remember that each case has unique circumstances. After your initial consultation, the next appointment involves the placement of the titanium post into your jawbone. The post is used to secure your implant firmly onto the jaw. It takes approximately five to six months for the implant post to properly integrate into the jaw bone through a process called osseointegration.
The next phase involves placing an abutment onto the implant. This will perform the task of acting as a base for the permanent crown that will be attached. Once the abutment is in place, your Ventura implant dentist will create a permanent crown and fix it to the abutment.
Woodside Dental Care Does it All
Many dentists must refer their patients to a specialist such as an oral surgeon or periodontist to place the implant post in the jaw, and then patients have you come back to the original dentist after the implant has healed to attach the crown. To ensure consistency of your treatment and to make sure you get the results we would expect, we complete the entire process in our office. Offering both placement and restoration of dental implants in one location is our way of making your dental implant experience convenient and hassle-free.
