Dental Implants for Santa Ana
Why Are Dental Implants Needed?
Years and years ago, if someone lost a tooth, they sadly had to suffer without it or use a set of horrendous wooden teeth to do the job. But we live in modern times now! The world’s dentistry has developed state of the art dental services that fix the problem of missing teeth or teeth that are unsightly due to gum disease or damage. Instead of wooden teeth, strong, natural looking replacement teeth made out of porcelaine are available.These are highly dependable in everyday life when they are anchored to the jawbone with a dental implant. Dr. Perry at Rancho Dental provides quality dental implants for Santa Ana inhabitants.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants basically replace a tooth’s roots. Just as natural tooth’s roots anchor the tooth to your jaw bone, Dental Implants provide a strong foundation for both options of replacement teeth: permanent and removable.
What does the proceedure involve?
First of all a plan needs to be created.The team of professionals at Rancho Dental will plan out your personal needs and decide the order in which to proceed, making sure the plan is coordinated in an organized manner.
Next, a titanium metal post is implanted in place of the original tooth’s root. The implanted metal post becomes securly anchored as the jawbone grows around the implant. This will take approximatly 6 to 12 weeks.
Once this process is through, the replacement tooth will need something to connect to the implant with. This is where a small connector post called an abutment comes in.
Last but certainly not least, the dentist makes a replacement tooth, called a crown, and then attaches this to the abutment. Much care is taken in this process, including the taking of a mold of your teeth and the matching of the color to the rest of your teeth. This is done in order to ensure your replacement teeth look and feel very natural and comfortable.
