Dental Implant Surgery in Calabasas
Dental Implants are an excellent option for patients looking to permanently replace missing or damaged teeth. Teeth may fall out or require extraction for several reasons. For teeth that have sustained trauma or an injury, or have become infected and suffer from decayed as a result of untreated periodontal disease, patients may need to permanently replace the tooth. Although there are options for flippers or dentures, in severe cases where patients are missing all or the majority of their teeth, dental implants provide a comfortable, functional, and permanent solution. The multi-step process requires the expertise of a periodontist in Calabasas who will assess your case and determine the best treatment plan for you.
Permanent dental implants are titanium or zirconia posts that are placed directly in the jaw bone to replace the tooth roots. Because dental implants are rooted in the jaw, a patient must possess adequate bone density to sustain the implants. If a patient suffers from bone loss, your Calabasas periodontist will first need to perform a bone graft treatment in Calabasas before the implants can be placed. Often, patients are told they are not a candidate for dental implants. Some of the most frequently asked questions we receive are “Can you still get dental implants with bone loss?”, “How do you get dental implants without bone?” and “Do I have enough bone for dental implants?” At our practice, we offer comprehensive periodontal care and effective solutions for patients seeking to restore their smiles. We offer several graft-less procedures for patients who lack the bone density needed to support dental implants and offer various bone graft treatments to restore the lost bone a patient needs to support dental implants. Once the adequate bone density has been restored, the implant can be placed. After the implant is placed, a scan of the patient’s mouth is taken to create a temporary restoration that is color-matched to blend with the rest of the patient’s smile. The scan is sent to a lab that will create the restoration within 24 hours and the patient will return the next day to receive their temporary tooth. This ensures that the patient’s smile is complete and without gaps while the implant heals. Over the next three to six months, the dental implant will fuse to the jaw bone during a process called osseointegration, and the gum tissue around the implant will heal. After a few months, the patient will return for their permanent restoration. This artificial tooth is color-matched to perfectly blend with the patient’s smile, and looks feels and functions just like a normal tooth.
Dental implants restore patients’ abilities to chew, speak and smile with ease and comfort. If you are missing single or multiple teeth, dental implants may be the right solution for you. Contact us today to schedule your appointment and learn more about the best treatment plan for your needs.
