Dental Implants Dana Point
Dental implants remain a dependable treatment option for patients who are experiencing missing teeth. The treatment time for dental implants can vary by the number of affected teeth, location, and how they are being restored.
Dr. Rodd is a skilled Dana Point dental implants specialist with more than a decade of experience in the field. Through his expertise in the procedure, you can benefit from durable and long-lasting dental implants that will help you enjoy a healthy smile.
Dental implants consist of a titanium screw that is fabricated and surgically placed into your jawbone. Not every patient is a good candidate for this procedure and complications may arise. We recommend that patients conduct an examination to determine their candidacy for this treatment.
The screws are designed using durable metal materials. They are then inserted onto your jawbone using safe and effective surgical practices. After the screw has been inserted, bone will begin to grow around it. This process is called Osseointegration.
Once the screw is stable, the restoration itself is ready. A crown, or artificial tooth, is then created and placed onto the screw. A fixture level impression can be performed to determine the accurate characteristics of your teeth. This involves attaching an impression coping into your implant. Crowns are produced to provide the natural function and appearance of your original teeth. Once the crowns have been secured, this completes the treatment.
