It never pays to neglect the care of your teeth. Poor oral hygiene habits in your youth can have serious consequences later in life. Your teeth will be more susceptible to decay, tooth infections, and periodontal disease, leading to premature tooth loss. Once permanent natural teeth are lost, they’re gone forever. You can, however, reconstruct your smile with dental implants. For many people, dental implant prosthetics offer the next best thing to having natural teeth. If you live in Costa Mesa, California, or nearby communities, you can come to Smiles4OC for implant treatment.
Modern dentistry provides you with numerous options for replacing lost teeth. Partial dentures and dental bridges offer a practical solution to replace two or more consecutive missing teeth. Full dentures can replace all of your teeth if they must be removed due to periodontal disease.
None of these treatments, however, are as effective as implants because implants replace lost teeth and their roots to function more like natural teeth. Implants can replace one missing tooth, multiple teeth, or all your teeth to restore your smile naturally.
If you’re replacing one or more teeth individually, Dr. Thomas Rolfes will surgically embed an implant into your jaw for every missing tooth. Over the next few months, the implant will fuse with your bone system to act like a tooth root. Once it’s healed, we’ll place a dental crown on top to serve as your new tooth.
To replace an entire arch or all of your teeth, we can use the all-on-4 (or all-on-6) dental implant system to support a set of custom-designed prosthetics for your use. Either way, implants become a permanent part of your bone structure to replace lost teeth permanently.
No other prosthetic can match the appeal of implants when it comes to appearance. Dr. Rolfes can customize your replacement teeth to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth or the contour of your mouth to give you an attractive, functional, and pleasing smile.
Implants look like real teeth and act and feel like the “real deal” as well.
When you reconstruct your smile with implants, you can look forward to the following:
