Your smile can be a tremendous asset in opening doors for your future. A warm, welcoming, sincere smile is hard to resist! Tooth loss, however, can make your smile less appealing. Dental implants in Ventura can resolve tooth loss issues and restore your smile’s natural beauty. You can learn more about dental implant treatment from your implant dentist in Ventura, California, Dr. Klara N. Efner, at Serene Dentistry Ventura.
There’s no better way to complete your smile after losing natural teeth than dental implants. Implants are dental restorations that closely mimic the look, function, and feel of natural teeth. They’re composed of a titanium post that acts like a tooth root, a connective abutment to support your replacement tooth, and a dental crown that serves as your new tooth. If you’re missing several teeth in a row, your missing teeth will be replaced with an implant bridge. To replace all of your teeth, your implant dentist in Ventura will custom-design implant-supported dentures for your use.
Getting implants is a process that requires surgery. Before your treatment, Dr. Efner will assess your oral health and general health to ensure you have no problems that can impede your treatment. Then, we’ll proceed with your procedure by embedding the titanium implant post into your jaw where your tooth went missing. There, it will remain to fuse with your bone system, a process that could take several months to complete. This post will become the foundation for your new tooth. Once healed, Dr. Efner will attach the abutment and crown to complete your treatment.
Implants aren’t the only restorations that can complete your smile. They are, however, the only restorations that replace your tooth and its roots, giving you the security and stability of natural teeth. You can smile confidently, knowing your prosthetics won’t slip or fall out when you least expect it!
