Dental Implant Teeth Replacement at University Dental in San Diego

A full, bright smile is one of your most valuable assets, but replacing missing teeth is about more than just aesthetics and confidence. The gaps left by missing teeth can lead to oral health problems including infection, damage, decay, and bone loss. Dental implants are the superior option for replacing missing teeth. Dr. Armin Hage and the expert team at University Dental in San Diego specialize in dental implants at affordable prices.

 

 

What are my dental implant options?

Dental implants are great options to replace single teeth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch of teeth, and there are different types of implants to suit each situation.

  • Single tooth implants involve one titanium screw, an abutment, and a prosthetic crown that matches the shape, size and color of the surrounding teeth. 

 

  • Dental implant bridges are used to replace multiple adjacent teeth, but instead of using one screw per missing tooth, two or more implants are spaced apart and joined together with a bridge of prosthetic teeth that covers the entire gap.

 

  • Implant-supported dentures can be used to replace an entire arch of teeth, using four to six implants to support a secure and natural-looking arch of dentures that help maintain jawbone density and don’t slip or shift like traditional dentures.

 

  • All-on-4 dental implants involve a revolutionary, minimally-invasive procedure that allows you to get a full arch of teeth in one surgical appointment. A set of custom-designed prosthetic teeth will be designed beforehand, and after your dentist places four implants, the prosthetic arch will be affixed to the implants and you’ll leave with a full smile intact.

What are Dental Implants?

A connector – known as an abutment is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns. The crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth. Small screw made of titanium – help to place the implant in the jawbone.

Dental implants are a permanent solution to replacing missing teeth. They involve a titanium screw surgically implanted in your jaw to support a natural-looking prosthetic tooth. 

Compared to other tooth replacement options, dental implants are the most durable, allowing you to eat and speak comfortably. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth and typically last for decades. Dental implants are easy to maintain – all you need to do is brush and floss as usual and get your twice-yearly checkups. Most importantly, dental implants help keep your jawbone healthy and strong – without a natural tooth root or titanium replacement, your jawbone will start to deteriorate, causing further aesthetic and oral health issues.

 

How is the dental implant procedure performed?

1.The first step in the dental implant procedure is a consultation to determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implant surgery. A 3D image of your jaw will show whether you have sufficient bone density to support an implant. If you don’t, you might need bone grafting surgery beforehand.

 

2. If you are a suitable candidate for dental implants, the next step is the surgical placement of the titanium screw. The surgery is invasive but no more so than having a tooth removed, and at most you might experience some swelling or discomfort as the implant site heals.

3. Before the next step of the dental implant procedure, the titanium screw must fuse with your jawbone to provide a stable and dependable foundation for the prosthetic tooth. After about three to six months, your dentist will reopen the gums and attach an abutment, which connects the screw to the new tooth. When the procedure is complete, the missing space will be filled, your jawbone will be strengthened, and no one will be able to tell that one of your teeth is actually a replacement.

All-On-4 Dental Implants to Replace Multiple Teeth

Are you missing multiple teeth? If so, the best option is the All-On-4 dental implant. The All-On-4 procedure is an excellent denture alternative to provide a permanent set of replacement teeth. The All-On-4 method is similar to a dental implant, except instead of having a root inserted into the jawbone for each and every tooth you need to replace, you can attach a whole set of teeth to only 4 frames inserted into the jaw. This allows for a minimally invasive procedure that can provide realistic replacement teeth for your whole mouth. Ditch the dentures and avoid the annoyance and embarrassment they can cause. Go with the better alternative with the All-On-4 dental implant procedure from University Dental in San Diego.
