Do you live in the Los Gatos CA area and suffer from a less than perfect smile? Dental implants are a great solution for those that have cracked, chipped, broken, or missing teeth that have been a source of frustration, disappointment, and embarrassment. Thanks to this advancement in dental technology, these problems don’t need to remain a source of embarrassment.
In short, a dental implant starts with a titanium post that gets surgically implanted into your jawbone at the point where the undesired tooth is or was. This process is typically performed by an oral surgeon or a dentist trained in advanced oral surgical procedures.
After a recovery period, often several months, where the jawbone has actually fused itself to the titanium post, a dental cap is placed on top, creating a natural looking and in most cases, permanent solution to ugly or missing teeth.
Depending upon the severity of your existing teeth, this dental implant process could be used to replace just one tooth, several teeth, and even all of the teeth in your mouth. For many, dental implants provide an excellent alternative to dentures as a full mouth implant is certainly a possibility.
If you’re not sure if dental implants are the answer to your less-than-perfect smile, your best bet would be to speak with a Los Gatos cosmetic dentist that could help you evaluate all of your options.
