If you’re looking into dental implant tooth restoration, you’ve come to the right place. Dental implants are a remarkable treatment that restores your complete smile and helps your jawbone to heal from the damages of tooth loss. Dental implants are so unique here in Tehachapi.
What are dental implants made of?
Dental implants are made up of three pieces.
- Titanium Fixture: This piece serves as the anchor for the entire implant. It imitates the root of the tooth and is shaped like a screw and eases into the bone for maximum support.
- Abutment: This is a topping piece that fills in the hollow space of the dental implant and will secure the porcelain crown in place as well.
- Porcelain Crown: This last piece is custom-designed by Dr. Sanchez so that it fits comfortably and looks just as natural as your real teeth and the tooth that was lost.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Osseointegration: Only dental implants, which are placed directly into the jawbone, can undergo this fusion transformation. This trait is truly what sets dental implants apart.
Durability: While other tooth restoration treatments can offer some bite pressure for easy food consumption, dental implants are the only ones that are embedded directly into the jawbone. This offers a level of durability that is not often found with other restoration treatments.
Longevity: Since dental implants are permanently placed, they’re made of quality, long-lasting material. As a result, patients have found that their dental implants can last anywhere from a decade to a lifetime, depending on care and maintenance.
Natural Looking: We work hard to make sure that your dental implant looks and feels as real as your natural teeth. This includes ensuring that the crown is shaped and shaded as realistic as possible.
Why do they work so well?
Dental implants have the unique ability to fuse with the jawbone in a biological process known as osseointegration. This does not mean that the implant diffuses into the bone, but rather the jawbone grows around the implant to secure it in place. Only dental devices that utilize implants have access to this. The permanence of osseointegration allows for more durability and stability when eating or speaking. Other devices may have to rely on adhesives or a bridge to remain in place, but not dental implants. Osseointegration makes all the difference.
