Dental implants are changing the way we live! Implantology is the most exciting and revolutionary tooth replacement system offered at Dr. Huynh's office in Riverside.

Whether you’re self-conscious about missing teeth or desire more stability for your dentures, dental implants may be the dental restoration solution for you.

Traditional Techniques Have Limitations
The conventional forms of tooth replacement offered today are dentures and bridges. Although both are good alternatives, they are not without drawbacks and limitations.

  • Dentures feel uncomfortable and require daily removal.
  • Dentures can slip out despite the best adhesives and don't afford the biting force necessary to enjoy certain foods.
  • Bridges offer excellent chewing force and esthetic, but they come at the expense of shaving down adjacent teeth called “abutments” to support the bridge.
  • Bridges are cemented in place and offer little access to hygiene. Flossing is nearly impossible to perform. Without proper flossing, teeth are more prone to developing decay.

Freedom With Dental Implants

Freedom with Dental Implants
 

A tooth is made up of two portions: a crown and a root. A dental implant is a titanium fixture that is surgically placed into your jaw bone to replace the root portion of a prosthetic tooth.

During the typical 4-6 month healing phase, bone will fuse to your dental implant, anchoring it in place. Once your dental implant has achieved stability, your restorative dentist will fabricate a crown which will be fastened to the dental implant to create your prosthetic tooth.

Advantages of dental implants:

  • Dental implants look and feel like your own natural teeth. You can laugh and live your life with renewed confidence.
  • Eat your favorite foods again. Dental implants are secure and will improve chewing function.
  • Dental implants will minimize further bone loss and resorption because they are integrated into your jaw bone.
  • Your adjacent teeth will also be spared from the cutting down required in traditional bridgework.
  • Dental implants can last a lifetime.

Oral surgeons work closely with your restorative dentist as a team to ensure a successful dental implant tooth replacement. Discover how dental implants can relieve your worries about loose dentures, bridges and missing teeth.
