Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are an ideal solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. Implants are the only dental restoration solution that actually preserves your natural jawbone and helps stimulate new growth. Much like a natural, living tooth, implants consist of a root and a crown — the visible portion of your tooth.

The root of an implant is a titanium screw that anchors securely and permanently to your jawbone. The visible crown is a ceramic or porcelain tooth that closely matches the surrounding natural teeth in shape, size, and color. The dentists at LA Dental Town are experts at designing dental implants that are not only functional, but are aesthetically pleasing as well.

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

If you have one or more missing teeth, you may be an ideal candidate for implants. It also helps to have healthy gum tissue, free from periodontal disease, and adequate jawbone density to hold the implant. If during your consultation your dentist determines that you need to build up your jawbone to help secure the implant, bone grafting may also be an option to prepare your mouth for your new implant.

At LA Dental Town, you have the advantage of the practice’s panoramic diagnostic machine. This advanced technology provides comprehensive digital images of your mouth so your dentist can accurately diagnose your oral condition and determine the best course of action for preparing your teeth and gums.

This high-tech diagnostic equipment improves the overall process for your new dental implants.

What are the advantages of replacing missing teeth with custom dental implants?

Dental implants are often described as the next best thing to your natural teeth. Some advantages of implants include:

  • Improves oral aesthetics
  • Improves your ability to eat all the foods you love
  • Improves your ability to speak naturally
  • Preserves natural tooth, bone, and facial structure
  • Helps prevent nearby teeth from shifting out of place
  • More comfortable than dentures
  • Reduces bone and gum recession
  • Doesn’t require removal of adjacent teeth

Dental implants can also help support partial or full dentures more securely than traditional dentures, which simply sit on top of your gums.

If you have one or more missing teeth, schedule a consultation to find out if dental implants are an ideal solution for you.
