So you’ve lost some teeth and now are unwilling to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and take back that full-toothed smile you once had. Guess what? With dental implants in San Diego, you can!
For most patients, dental implants in San Diego are the optimal replacement for both the root and crown of a tooth. They feel so authentic that implant recipients forget that they ever lost a tooth in the first place.
A dental implant is anchored into the jawbone with a strong metal post. It doesn’t slide around like dentures, and unlike a dental bridge, it safeguards healthy jawbone and prevents bone recession. After the post is entirely enmeshed with the jawbone, the supporting device, called an abutment, and beautiful crown are solidly attached to the post. Some patients are able to undergo all three parts of the treatment in one visit.
If you’ve lost several teeth, you may be a good candidate for implant-anchored dentures. Talk to Dr. Ortega to learn more.
Another way to go back in time is to whiten your teeth to the bright color they were when you were a teen. There are several different types of teeth whitening systems, from same-day procedures to at-home treatments. Again, talk to Dr. Ortega about your goals and budget.
