Are you missing one or more teeth? Do you feel self-conscious about your smile? Dental implants may be the solution you need for a beautiful, healthy smile. At San Mateo Dental Care, we offer comprehensive dental implant services to help restore your confidence and oral health.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into your jawbone to support a replacement tooth or bridge. The implant itself is made of titanium, a strong and lightweight material that is well-tolerated by the body. The implant fuses with your jawbone over time to create a stable foundation for your replacement tooth or teeth.
Dental implants offer many benefits over other tooth replacement options, such as dentures or bridges. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth, and they are more durable and long-lasting. Dental implants also help preserve the health of your jawbone and surrounding teeth by preventing bone loss and shifting of neighboring teeth.
The dental implant procedure typically involves multiple steps and appointments, but the end result is worth it. First, Dr. Belen will evaluate your oral health and discuss your treatment options. Next, he will surgically place the implant into your jawbone. Over the next several months, the implant will fuse with your bone in a process called osseointegration. Once the implant has fully healed, Dr. Belen will attach an abutment to the implant and place a custom-made crown or bridge on top to complete your smile.
Proper care of your dental implants is essential to their long-term success. Be sure to brush and floss regularly, and schedule regular checkups with Dr. Belen to monitor the health of your implant and surrounding teeth. Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, as these habits can increase your risk of implant failure.
