Dental Implants Tustin
In many cases, a dental implant is the wisest choice to improve your dental health. If you are looking for a more effective and less destructive way of replacing a missing tooth, a dental implant may produce the best overall result. Customarily, you would replace a missing tooth with a dental bridge or partial denture. Both of these methods require the teeth on either side of the space to be prepared, even filed down, to accommodate the denture or bridge. You started with only a gap, now you have a gap as well as two weakened teeth, one on either side. This is not the result you had hoped to achieve!
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, usually constructed of titanium, and then embedded surgically into the jawbone. Some time is allowed for the jawbone and titanium to integrate, then an impression is made for the final restoration.
Now you are ready either for an artificial tooth – or teeth, as the case may be – to be firmly fixed on to the anchor post that is snugly rooted in your implant. You no longer have to deal with a cumbersome denture or bridge which needs to be manipulated or requires special care. You will hardly know you have artificial teeth in your mouth and the freedom of eating, chewing, sucking, and even laughing with no restraint is amazing.
If you have been having problems with digestion due to improperly chewed food, this is another issue that will be eliminated once you have your teeth in place. Besides, trying to chomp on nuts and snacks with a denture on is not the greatest way to have fun with your food. So consider carefully. The wrong kind of solution to your missing teeth can also effectively make a dent in your social life!
A dental implant is not merely a way of restoring missing teeth. Implants provide you with natural looking prostheses that are securely fixed into your jaw, are easy to manage and never clumsy or obstructive. They are also so much easier to maintain than commonly used alternatives. But most importantly, a dental implant restores your facial contours and tissues and gives you the confidence to flash a fabulous smile with no fear!
Patient Success Stories
15 years ago, I was referred to Dr. Guyot, and it has been the best dental experience being his patient. I have 100% trust and comfort in what he tells me. He truly cares about his patients and takes the time to talk and plan out the method of treatment, unlike other dentist who are in it just for the money. Dr. Guyot is the only dentist I trust.
