More About Dental Implants


A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is inserted in your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge or denture in place. Implants are made from titanium metal and ceramic materials that are biocompatible with body issues and. They act as a solid foundation and anchor for replacement teeth and dentures. 

With dental implants, you can:

Improve your speech and appearance

Eliminate pain and discomfort caused by dentures

Restore your smile, confidence and esteem

Improve your oral health by reducing the chances of further tooth loss and ache

Start enjoying your favorite foods again!

This permanent solution has the advantages over bridge work that it does not stress the surrounding teeth for support, and, should the tooth wear out, another can simply be replaced on the shaft.
 
A dental implant is an option to replace a missing tooth. In this procedure, a small titanium shaft is surgically implanted into the bone and allowed to set. The bone grows around it forming a tight connection, which additionally slows or stops the bone loss that occurs when the root of a natural tooth is missing. Once the implant is firmly set in the mouth, Dr. Alvarez then works to attach the replacement tooth’s onto the top of the shaft.

Dental implants in Mission Viejo can also be used as support as part of an implant bridge. This is an alternative to partial dentures, and has several advantages. First, there is no adjustment period to acclimatize the patient who, once the work is done, only feels teeth, not metal supports intruding into the mouth. Second, this slows the bone loss occasioned by missing teeth. Third, there is no discomfort or difficulty in eating. And, best of all, of course, they don’t have to be taken out at all.

Common Questions


What is the difference between dental implants and crowns?

Dental implants are small posts that act as the root of a tooth for a crown to be placed over. They are often used in situations where there is serious tooth damage or a missing tooth where only using a crown is unfeasible.

What happens after my implants are completed?

You may experience some discomfort for a few days following the procedure. Once your dental implants are in place you can care for them just as you do your natural teeth, with regular brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings.
