Dental Implants Are The Permanent Restoration Option for Missing Teeth

There are a number of different options for tooth replacement, but for a large number of patients, dental implants prove to be the option with the best results and the fewest downsides. When teeth are missing, the jaw bone tends to wear away. Dental implants are placed in the bone and fuse in a manner similar to that of real teeth. Because of this, they prevent the bone from receding. Dental implants with Dr. Jaqueline Subka make eating and speaking easy, and they look and function just like your natural teeth.

Getting a Tooth Implant in Thousand Oaks, CA

Dental implants have three parts, and the procedure of placing the implant is a three step process. First, the titanium implant is surgically inserted into the jaw bone. The titanium post is the part of the dental implant that functions as the root of the tooth. Through a process called osseointegration, the titanium implant and the jaw bone naturally fuse together. Second, an abutment is attached to the top of the implant post. The abutment extends above the gum line and provides a surface onto which the crown can be affixed. Affixing the crown is the third step of the implant procedure. The crown is the part of the implant that replaces the visible portion of the tooth. It is custom made for each patient and matches the rest of the teeth perfectly.
