Dental Implants are a Great Alternative
A dental implant is a titanium-based cylinder that goes in place of the missing tooth root. After a long period of time, there are other parts that are placed on the implant so that your dentist can eventually add a crown over the dental implant. Dr. Brownson has been serving San Clemente for over 30 years and knows the ins-and-outs of dental implants. Dental Implants can also be used to support full or partial dentures, which will improve retention and stability.
Most patients with a strong bone mass can have implants, but it does vary. Typically the e-ray and CT-scan are performed to find out if you have enough bone to place the implant, as well as to verify the size and style that should be used. Dr. Brownson is a local San Clemente Dental Specialist.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants carry many advantages when compared to fixed bridges and removable dentures supported by other teeth or gums:
1. Better esthetics:
Since implants are placed in the gum almost the same way a natural tooth is supported, they can show off a more realistic and natural look compared to other alternatives.
2. Reduction of bone resorption:
When a tooth is lost or broken, the bone structure slows down and recedes. By placing a implant in the empty space, it brings down the speed of bone resorption and provides strong support for the tissue
Patients who have experienced removable full or partial dentures know that keeping their dentures in place is always a challenge. Dental implants offer a great improvement to denture retention for all patients. In some cases the denture can be secured to a group of implants with special screws that stabilize the denture completely.
4. Preserving natural tooth structure:
Dr. Brownson – Your San Clemente Dental Implant Dentist
Often the preferred method of replacing a single missing tooth is a bridge. Bridges require extra preparation for the surrounding teeth to ultimately connect 3 or more teeth. This negatively impacts your health by making the task of retaining your teeth more difficult and by often requiring the destruction of existing tooth structure to create room for the new bridge. An implant is mostly an independent unit and does not negatively affect the adjacent teeth.
