Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants in Huntington Beach, CA
Missing teeth pose a serious oral health problem that traditional dental treatments haven’t always been able to address entirely. Standard care for missing and extracted teeth via fixed bridges and full or partial dentures poses issues that can stand in the way of proper oral function, and even your confidence. At Pearly White Dental, Drs. Titi Dang, David Levitt, and Marlice Patam are dental specials who can help you solve the problems caused by missing teeth with dental implants in Huntington Beach, CA.
What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are a permanent way to replace teeth that have been lost or extracted due to severe damage or trauma. A dental implant is made up of a post, an abutment, and a crown. The post is made of titanium and acts as a replacement tooth root, so that your new tooth can be as stable as your natural tooth. The post is surgically placed and naturally integrates with bone in your jaw. This process, known as osseointegration, ensures that your implant is completely sturdy and is able to support healthy bone density by stimulating the area like a tooth root would.
Once your implant post has had a chance to complete integration, Dr. Dang will create a custom-made porcelain crown that will sit on top of the implant’s abutment to finalize your treatment.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Unlike fixed bridges and dentures, dental implants do not cause gum tissue shrinkage or require that healthy teeth be buffed down to accommodate treatment. Dental implants can also be used as anchors to support a denture, in order to restore an entire upper or lower arch of missing teeth. Implant-supported dentures provide a better fit and feel than removable dentures, and can return full oral function.
Dental implants are:
• Specifically designed to look and feel like your natural teeth
• Made of titanium and fuse with bone in your jaw, preserving it. With proper oral health care, your implants can last a lifetime.
• Easier to clean than other restoration options
• Able to maintain natural facial aesthetic
• A permanent, fixed solution
