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.
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.
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.
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.
