Dental Implants are your best option to restore your smile, your teeth, and your confidence if you are missing teeth. An implant is an artificial tooth replacement that serves as the root portion of a missing tooth. Due to the biocompatible properties of titanium, a dental implant fuses with the bone and becomes a good anchor for the replacement tooth. They can be used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. Dental implants are a permanent solution that will look and function like your natural teeth, creating a result that enhances your smile, health, and confidence.
Dental Implants are now considered as the standard of care for replacing missing teeth. Most patients with missing teeth are candidates for this procedure. The dentists and staff of First Impressions dental are pleased to be able to offer these life-changing treatment plans to patients in San Diego and surrounding areas.
Nothing can replace your natural teeth, but Dental Implants are the next best thing as part of our oral surgical care. Dental Implants have been placed successfully for over 40 years because of its compatibility with the body and the ability for implants to integrate with the natural bone of the jaw. Dental Implants do not rely on other teeth and are secure, reliable, and have predictable results.
A Dental Implant is almost always the best option if you are missing a single tooth. A single tooth implant does not involve any of the adjacent teeth and allows for a more natural function and maintenance of the tooth. With multiple missing teeth, where a traditional bridge may not be an option, two or more implants are placed to support an implant bridge. Implant-supported dentures provide the most secure and stable platform for the denture. These implants provide special attachments for the denture to lock into giving you a tight and secure feel. Implant-supported Dentures require two to four implants to be placed to give you the best fit.
