Do you have one or more missing teeth? Do you want a fuller and more balanced smile?
Dental implants are a great restorative option that Dr. Michael Ayzin offers in his Costa Mesa, CA office. Dentistry @ Its Finest offers same day dental implants and All-on-Four dental implants to patients in the Orange County area.
But why should patients replace their missing teeth, and what are the benefits of dental implants?
Benefits of Dental Implants
Filling the gaps left by missing teeth offers many benefits to patients. Dental implants can:
- Improve chewing ability
- Prevent facial sagging
- Reduce the risk of gum disease
- Provide durability
- Decrease the risk of slippage
- Improve speech
Dental implants may also be used to help prevent further oral health problems as a result, such as:
- Shifting Teeth
- Tooth Decay
- Bone Loss
- Misaligned Bite
- Receding Gums
- Facial Sagging
Dental implants provide a stable restoration that can last you a lifetime. Learn about the types of dental implants that Dentistry @ Its Finest offers:
Same Day Dental Implants
One or more teeth can be restored with same day dental implants. A single missing tooth can be replaced in a day, and multiple missing teeth can be replaced with removable or fixed dentures, which are supported by dental implants. Whole arches or a full mouth of missing teeth can be replaced with permanent dentures that are secured with dental implants.
All-on-Four Dental Implants
All-on-Four dental implants consist of a set of titanium metal posts that are implanted into the jaw bone. After a healing period of 3 to 6 weeks, each post is topped with an abutment and dental crown. This method of receiving dental implants does not require bone grafting and provides a quick recovery time for patients.
Dental Implants Q&A
Learn the answers to frequently asked questions about dental implants below:
Am I a good candidate for dental implants?
Patients who do not have periodontal disease, are non-smokers or are willing to stop smoking, and have good oral hygiene are good candidates for the dental implant procedure. Although a dental graft can be constructed, an adequate amount of jaw bone is preferred in patients to make it easier for dental implants to fuse to the jaw bone.
How should I care for my dental implants after the procedure?
Use a soft bristled toothbrush to clean your teeth with gentle strokes. You can also rinse your mouth with mouthwash to remove bacteria. You should also avoid hard or sticky foods for the first few days following your dental implant procedure.
Do dental implants hurt?
Anesthetic is used during the procedure to numb the area receiving the dental implant or implants. Any discomfort that you feel following the procedure should subside within 24 to 48 hours.
