Dental Implant Consultation and Evaluation

Dental implants are one of the greatest treatments for replacing missing teeth. They enhance one's quality of life by improving one's overall dental health after suffering from the aftereffects of missing teeth. Implants provide patients with a non-removable dental prosthesis that looks and functions like their original teeth.
Patients can receive dental implant treatment from our skilled dentist Dr. Daniel Tebbi at Daniel Tebbi, D.M.D. - Cosmetic Dentistry & Orthodontics, in Encino, CA.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a surgically placed titanium post that replaces the root of a damaged or missing tooth. It provides support for dental prostheses such as crowns, bridges, and dentures. The restoration procedure aids in the restoration of the teeth' functionality.
Dental implants are surgically implanted into your jawbone and allowed to graft while the jawbone heals. After that, they are connected to the chosen dental restoration.
Types of Dental Implants
The most widely used alternative option for bridges or removable dentures is the endosteal implant. Endosteal implants entail the surgical insertion of titanium implants into the jawbone at the location of lost teeth.
Subperiosteal implants are best suited for patients with low bone height who cannot wear traditional dentures. These implants sit on the jawbone, beneath the gum tissue, and are held in place via osseointegration.
Benefits of Dental Implants
There are numerous advantages to replacing missing teeth with dental implants, the most important of which is that they:
- Maintain bone structure integrity following tooth loss
- Preserve the neighboring teeth's health because there is no requirement for bridgework
- Replace ill-fitting dentures
- Distribute bite forces equally over the mouth
- Have the same function and feel like natural teeth
- Improve speaking ability by doing away with bulky removable dentures
- Enhance your facial look by reducing bone loss
Who Would Need Implant Treatment?
Patients who have gaps between their teeth due to tooth loss can benefit from implant treatment. In the case of a damaged tooth that has been cracked or chipped, implants can be placed after the affected tooth has been extracted.
However, to undertake this procedure, a patient must have sufficient bone mass to sustain the implant construction. People who are unable to receive treatments such as dentures can choose implants to restore their tooth functionality.
