temecula dental implants

Unlike bridges and removable dentures, our team can offer a tooth loss solution that can last for decades to come, potentially even a lifetime! Dental implants are different and more lifelike than traditional tooth replacements options. In today’s blog, Oasis Family Dental in Temecula, CA, talks about the longevity of dental implants.

The Dangers of Tooth Loss

When you lose a tooth, we urge you to see our team right away to discuss possible solutions. Even minor tooth loss could allow your jawbone to lose mass and density, which leads to a breakdown and a weakened smile, as well as further tooth loss. Missing teeth are also linked to issues eating, speaking clearly, and with overall quality of life, as you may avoid social interactions. Don’t let tooth loss cause these concerns, instead talk to our team about a long-lasting prosthetic that can prevent your jaw from breaking down and last for years! Dental implants can help whether you have minor or advanced cases of tooth loss.

The Dental Implant Portion

Let’s talk about the dental implant portion of your new tooth or prosthetic. The implant portion is a biocompatible titanium post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. The body sees this as natural root structure, and it will bond with the jaw and stimulate the growth of structure to prevent a breakdown in mass and density. This also means it can last as long as natural teeth with proper care and attention. Our team will choose the best angle and position to ensure your new root or roots can support an individual replacement tooth or even a set of fixed dentures.

Completing Your New Tooth

Once your implants are in place, we will wait for the area to heal before we attach an abutment that extends above the gum line. For an individual missing tooth, we can attach a crown to the abutment, which looks natural and blends with your smile, which also absorbs daily bite forces and pressures. For multiple missing teeth, several posts could support a bridge or even a full or partial set of dentures, which are fixed in place and never slip or require removal for maintenance!
