Dental implants are considered the most superior solution in restorative dentistry. They are a permanent tooth replacement option that mimics your natural teeth better than any other treatment option available. Dental implants are also highly versatile, as they can be used to replace a single missing tooth or to secure a full mouth of prosthetic teeth. When choosing implants from Thousand Oaks Dentistry, you’ll be met with state-of-the-art care from start to finish.
Dental implants involve a small titanium post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. The implant naturally fuses to the surrounding bone over time during a process called osseointegration. Once it heals, an implant restoration can be placed on top. Depending on your unique needs and goals, this may include a dental crown, bridge or denture. At the completion of your dental implant treatment plan, you can expect to reap a number of significant advantages, including:
Dietary freedom : You won’t be restricted to soft foods or have to worry about your prosthetic tooth or teeth slipping out of place while eating. Go ahead and enjoy your favorite meal.
Hassle-free care : Dental implants can be cared for just like natural teeth. There are no special cleaning regimes or adhesive creams to deal with.
Bone loss prevention : Since dental implants offer an artificial tooth root that is anchored firmly into your jawbone, the underlying bone gets proper stimulation to prevent atrophy or deterioration. Dental implants are the only restorative treatment to prevent bone loss and premature facial aging.
Unrivaled confidence : With dental implants, you can trust your new teeth. In other words, you can laugh, speak and eat with full confidence knowing your implants are anchored securely.
