If you’ve lost natural teeth due to decay or injury, dental implants provide you with a practical means of replacing them. Implants have become a popular remedy for replacing missing teeth due to their natural appearance and functionality. At Smiles4OC, we offer exceptional dental implant services to patients in Costa Mesa, California, and the surrounding communities.
Dental implants offer a permanent solution to replace missing teeth, making them an appealing choice for the long haul. Implants are also popular due to their:
Dental implants stimulate bone growth to preserve your jawbone structure, just like natural teeth. By filling the gap left by missing teeth, implants preserve your bite and keep your remaining teeth from shifting out of position. They are also durable and stable, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime. In addition, dental implants are impervious to cavities, so you won’t have to worry about tooth decay.
When it comes to appearance, you can’t beat the natural look, fit, and feel of dental implants to restore your smile to its beautiful state once again.
Dental implants work in a similar fashion to your natural tooth system. They’re comprised of an anchor (the implant itself) and a crown that acts as your replacement tooth. The implant will be embedded in your jawbone, where it will fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration. This may take up to six months or longer for completion. Once the implant has fully fused with your jawbone, an abutment and finally a crown will be placed to complete the procedure.
The cost of implant treatment will depend on how many implants you need. At Smiles4OC, we offer dental financing options to help compensate for costly implant procedures.
