Millions of Americans suffer from missing teeth. Removable prosthetics can treat some of the symptoms that result from losing one or more teeth, but these fixes never truly address the underlying problem. A missing tooth should be replaced with something that closely resembles natural tooth structure, providing maximum comfort and function. That very solution is available at our San Diego office from Dr. Salami, and it’s called a dental implant.
Implant Dentistry & Missing Tooth Replacement in San Diego
How Dental Implants and Tooth Replacement Work
Designed with a tooth’s basic structure in mind, dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. An implant consists of two portions–the artificial tooth root, which is implant post, and the restoration, which is the replacement tooth. The root portion is fabricated from biocompatible titanium, and once Dr. Salami places the post in your jaw, it is incorporated by the surrounding bone to provide an ultra-secure foundation for the resulting restoration. Porcelain is usually used for the crown portion of the implant, and its translucency is similar to that of a natural tooth. Like tooth roots, dental implants vary in shape and size, so they can better accommodate your jaw structure.
Benefits of Dental Implants and Tooth Restoration
Dental implants function and feel like natural teeth, allowing you to eat and speak comfortably.
Dental implants can be restored to look like natural teeth so that you can smile with confidence.
Dental implants help maintain the bone structure of the jaw and face, preventing premature aging associated with tooth and bone loss.
Dental implants support various prosthetics, so whether you’re missing one tooth or many, your restoration can rest firmly and permanently on a solid foundation of dental implants.
Dental implants can last a lifetime, with proper care.
