Tooth Implant Dentistry With Your Ladera Ranch Dentist
Dental implants are the perfect solution for the times when we are not able to save a tooth or multiple teeth. There are times whether by accident, trauma, or severe decay, we are unable to save a tooth among our patients in Mission Viejo.
Missing a tooth has many impacts on the bite and esthetics of the smile. This can lead to favoring one side to chew or covering your mouth while smiling or laughing to avoid the embarrassing gap.
How do dental implants work?
Today, the ideal treatment has become more predictable and more affordable. When dental implants replace that missing tooth, our patients at our office in Ladera Ranch can get back to chewing and smiling normally.
A tooth implant is a piece of titanium that replaces the root structure of the tooth. Dental implants are placed where the roots of the teeth used to be and a crown is placed on top of them to rebuild your beautiful smile. There are three pieces to dental implants.
1. The dental implants themselves
2. The abutment, which interfaces with the tooth implant
3. The dental crown, which is placed on top of the abutment
Advanced technology helps the tooth implant placement
