Dental Implants Redondo Beach
A modern approach to replacing missing teeth is through dental implants, which are the best choice for most patients. It provides a long-lasting result and helps preserve bone that supports teeth. They come in the form of small, screw-shaped titanium posts that replace the root of missing teeth. The procedure is minor and requires only local anesthesia in most cases. Dental implants are provided in Redondo Beach by Dr. Shvartsman and his team.
During a minor procedure, the implant is inserted directly into the jawbone. It will be left to heal for a few months before the final crown is attached. The implant will begin to fuse with the surrounding bone during this period.
A single implant can be inserted into the bone to replace the root of the tooth. A crown will be placed on top to simulate an actual tooth. This treatment has a high success rate, making it a long-term investment for single tooth replacement.
Multiple missing teeth require more than a single implant. The implants can be used as a support for fixed bridgework. One implant is placed on each side of the gap, a crown is then inserted between it, this requires no natural teeth to be used as bridge supports.
All teeth can be replaced permanently using dental implants because they can support an entire arch of upper or lower teeth. The new teeth can be supported by as little as 4 implants. Even removable dentures can be stabilized with implants. This prevents any pressure from being placed on the underlying bone, which can lead to accelerated bone loss and slipping dentures.
Flossing and brushing teeth on a daily basis can prevent bacterial infections such as peri-implantitis. If you have a habit of grinding and clenching teeth, you can protect your implants by wearing nightguards.
