Some things are hyped up to appear more valuable than they are, but when it comes to dental implants there is no way to overstate their benefits. The only thing that could be better is to grow back your own natural teeth. But on second thought, you still might be better off with implants. At the dental practice of Anna J. Huh, D.M.D., we are dedicated to restoring your smile to its full state.
Dental implants in Hawthorne
The first step to getting our Hawthorne dental implants is to come in for a consultation, during which you will be examined and have tests done to confirm that you are a good candidate. A big part of this is making sure that your jaw bone is sufficient to hold the post that acts as the root portion. Don't worry, though. Bone grafting can be done to address a jaw that is too thin or too weak. The post that we referred to is made of titanium for optimal strength and durability. Just like your natural roots, once placed surgically in your jaw, it will soon enough turn into a reliable foundation for your replacement tooth. Your jaw tissue grows around it and fuses with it. The process takes a few months to occur. It's at that point where a tooth-colored crown is fashioned from impressions of your mouth. It will be cemented to the top of the post. That's all there is to it. Brush your new implant along with your other teeth, and floss between it and them, too. You can do everything you would normally do. Chew even the tough and crunchy foods with confidence.
Our Hawthorne dental implants don't require messy adhesive, and your other teeth are unaffected. With proper care, they can last for a lifetime. Contact our office to book an appointment to get started.
