Dental Implants

If you are missing a tooth, dental implants can not only replace the tooth, but they can give you back your smile. Dental implants allow you to have a third set of teeth! The dental implant procedure has two stages and it can be done at Ladera Ranch Dentistry.

First, your dentist will insert a titanium screw that acts as the root and is placed in the jawbone. After 4-6 months of healing, the implant is uncovered and impressions are taken with a connector to fabricate the second part of the implant-the crown. Finally, the new crown is connected to the connector, allowing it to be as firm as the rest of your teeth.

While there are other ways to replace missing teeth, only dental implants can replace the entire tooth including the root and crown. And the best part is that dental implants look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. Ask your dentist if this procedure is right for you.
