If you are searching for natural-looking dental implants in Riverside, California, it’s time to learn more about Signature Smiles Dental. Drs. Geomel Brian Bebing and Harun Ayouby provide dental implants for patients throughout Riverside, California, to replace missing teeth, to create a dental bridge, or to create a more secure denture experience. Whether you want one tooth to be restored or need a dental bridge in an area of your mouth, it’s time to see what benefits dental implants can provide.
Dental implants use technology that includes titanium rods implanted into your jawbone as attachment points and crowns that serve as the top of your tooth. The rod is placed into your jaw and permanently attached to the bone. A crown is secured to the top of the rod, and you have a new, natural-looking tooth. Some dentists will complete the process in a day, while others will secure the rod and wait four to six months until it has bonded to the jawbone before placing the crown on top. The entire rod and crown are treated like your regular teeth once complete.
A dental implant can be used when you have a missing tooth, ensuring you have no spaces in your mouth. Implants can be used to replace the crowns that are used with bridges. When a traditional bridge is placed, the healthy teeth on either side of the space are shaped for the anchor crowns to fit over. Implants eliminate the reshaping of healthy teeth, as the implant anchors the restoration within the mouth. Implants can also secure dentures in your mouth if you want better-fitting dentures. You will need a customized set of dentures that attach to implants placed in the arch of your mouth for the dentures to fit onto.
If you are healthy, don’t smoke, and have stable blood sugar levels, you should be a good candidate for dental implants. Smokers can’t get dental implants because smoking can cause the implant to fail. If you can quit smoking, you can be considered for dental implant surgery. People with uncontrolled diabetes are not good candidates, as the ability to heal is essential when getting dental implants. When you have healthy gums, and good oral hygiene, your dentist should be able to provide dental implants without an issue.
