Time to Consider Dental Implants?

Posted by DENTAL MAGIC O.C on Feb 15 2022, 06:56 AM

A dental implant is a surgical fixture placed into the jawbone. It acts as a replacement for the root of a missing tooth and offers a solid, stable base. The dental implant is placed surgically in the jawbone and fuses with it by a process called "osseointegration". 

Today, dental implants are considered the standard of care for prosthetic replacement of missing teeth and their success rate is close to 98%. Patients who have healthy gums and enough bone density to hold an implant are good candidates for a dental implant.

Dr. Sandra Rodriguez and her team at Dental Magic OC, Lake Forest, California, always strive to give exceptional dental treatment and care to the patients.

Meanwhile, let’s look at different instances where you might have to consider having dental implants.

When Do You Need Dental Implants? 

  • Missing Teeth

Missing teeth can impact your appearance, your speech, the way you eat, and your self-esteem. If you have lost one or more of your natural teeth, talk to your dentist about getting implants.

  • Damaged Teeth

Cracked or fractured teeth are difficult to treat. Even if dentists use the traditional methods to treat it, they may cause problems in future. As a result, in some cases, dentists may recommend replacing them with an implant.

  • Uncomfortable/ Inefficient Dentures

Dentures are the traditional solution for replacing missing teeth. However, dentures are not a permanent solution, they are more difficult to wear and maintain, and their fit may change with time.

Advantages of Dental Implants

  • Aesthetically Pleasing: Dental implants are fixed and their crowns are designed to look and feel like your own teeth.
  • Improved Speech: Poor-fitting dentures can slip, affecting the way you speak. With implants, you won’t have this problem.
  • Improved Comfort:As they are fixed into the bone, implants feel more comfortable than removable dentures.
  • Better Chewing:  Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods without feeling any pain or discomfort.
  • Preserve Natural Teeth: Dental implants don't require the removal of any extra teeth and help preserve the adjacent teeth.
  • Durability: Implants are very durable and good care can make them last a lifetime.
