Designed Smiles Offers Quality and Expert Placement of Dental Implants
Tooth loss can cause feelings of despair as you wonder if your smile will ever look and feel the same. Understanding the fantastic benefits that dental implant restorations provide may help you feel better.
Dental implants are the preeminent solution to tooth loss, and Dr. Kim provides all facets of care necessary to receive dental implants. At Designed Smiles in Brea, you benefit from quality care expertly executed under the convenience of one roof.
Dental Implants Rely on a Healthy Jaw Bone
Dental implants require a healthy jaw bone for placement. Dr. Kim first inspects your jaw to determine if it is strong enough to support implant posts. People who have been missing teeth for an extended period may have bone loss. Without the stimulation of tooth roots, the bone quickly begins to shrink through a process known as resorption.
Should you have bone loss, we will recommend a bone graft. This is a relatively simple procedure that augments your jaw bone, allowing it to accommodate dental implant placement and promoting proper fusion.
Titanium Posts Preserve the Strength and Beauty of Facial Bone Structure
Dental implants are titanium posts strategically placed into the jaw. Their bio-compatible substance allows new bone growth to surround the dental implants, so they can begin to function as new tooth roots. The process usually takes about four months, at which point beautiful restorative crowns are attached.
The implant posts also prevent the progression of bone loss which is key to the health of surrounding teeth and the preservation of your natural facial structure. Bone loss can cause your mouth to appear sunken, which ages your appearance. Dental implants help you retain a full and youthful smile.
Radiant Porcelain Crowns Complete Your Smile
Restorations placed on dental implants may be for the loss of a single tooth, a row of teeth, or a full arch of teeth. They consist of lifelike porcelain, matched to surrounding teeth or designed to flatter your natural beauty. Most restorations are permanently attached to implant posts; however, some are removable.
