One of the most effective options for replacing a missing tooth or teeth can be performed by a dental implant dentist in San Francisco. Dental implants have two parts: the metal stem and the crown. The metal stem is placed within the jawbone and replaces the tooth’s root. A porcelain white crown is secured to the top of the implant stem, restoring your natural smile and giving you the function and stability you need to chew again.
A dental implant is a method for restoring a tooth that has decayed, worn down, or cracked and cannot be saved.
If you are missing or have lost a tooth, it can be the source of embarrassment and awkwardness. It effects the way you eat and awkwardly inhibits your natural smile. Over time, the consequences of missing teeth become worse, such as allowing surrounding teeth to drift, limiting the types of food you can eat and the continued loss of bone mass where your tooth used to be. A San Francisco dental implant dentist can restore your dental health and allow you to eat normally, smile confidently, and brush and floss routinely, just as you would with your natural teeth.
Dental Implants Procedure
Dental implant placement is performed by several highly trained specialists. A metal anchor, which functions as the tooth’s root, is inserted into your jawbone, and then the gum incision is closed. After the jaw and gums have had enough time to heal and settle, a custom-made dental crown is then placed onto the anchor.
Implant dentistry takes time to complete because the dental implant anchor requires a certain amount of time to fuse to the bone before the replacement tooth can be attached to it. Because every person and procedure are different, this may take a few weeks or a few months.
If you are missing one or more teeth you should consider Dental Implants. Other options include bridges or implant retained dentures.
