Dental Implants San Diego

The loss of teeth was seen in the past as a natural progression of aging. Today we know that people lose their teeth due to ignorance, neglect, dental decay, gum disease and sometimes unfortunately through accidents.

Loss of teeth itself is not life threatening, but certainly the quality of life is compromised. No part of the body has a greater role to play than the face. Besides being a focus on our senses, it is the means by which we communicate and reach out to others. Many times life is completely taken over by this condition or handicap. In addition to difficulty in chewing and enjoying food, there are drastic changes in appearance and speech. Dental Implants San Diego has changed the lives of many for the better, its amazing the difference in quality of life achieved by dental implants.

With all or some of the problems it is inevitable that a loss of confidence and a subsequent withdrawal from taking interest in the very things that makes life worth living- Food, Love and Laughter. Dental Implants San Diego can improve the quality of your life.

The need to replace lost teeth has been known since ancient times. As dental science evolved, progress was made gradually from removable loose fitting pieces made out of acrylic to the more sophisticated materials which we see today, metallic frameworks to support dental implant teeth. Nearly everyone can find someone who complains that their dentures are a “problem”. The problem is: they are loose, they move, they hurt, food gets under the denture, only soft chewing is possible and they are difficult to clean. Fixed bridges which are used when the missing teeth are just a few are an alternative except that adjacent teeth have to be shaped and reduced to provide a fixed solution. We have found that dental implants are the best technology available for replacing missing teeth, although a little more expensive initially, dental implants can last for decades offering a much cheaper solution in the long run.

Dental Implantology

Dental Implantology is the science that has developed as an answer for the great need to have artificial or replacement teeth anchored firmly in position. The Oxford dictionary describes the implant as “an insert in a living body” Imagine inserting a support for a lost tooth in a jaw forever. The science has progressed greatly in the past fifty years since it was first introduced. Dental Implants are a safe and predictable technology for an idea whose time has come. Today’s dental implants come in various designs and surfaces in order to achieve the best possible anchorage in the jawbone.

Look at this discovery: the metal Titanium integrates with human tissue thus making it possible for the metal to act as the root that can support new fixed teeth into position. This is as close to nature as one can possibly get. Once the concept of dental implants is understood, it does not seem to be overwhelming. Titanium tooth roots can be used to replace all or some of the missing teeth. Some or all teeth can be implanted. This is done in a clinic setting with local anaesthesia.

Further, computer technology has made inroads in the progress of implant placement accurately and safely. Impressions of the area to be implanted are scanned to create a template which guides the dentist into placing the implants. In many cases, provisional teeth can be immediately placed over the implants at the time of fixing them.

Treatment steps

  • The first step is to place the Titanium implants. These dental implants will remain covered for approximately 3-6 months. During this time, the dental implants fuse to the bone. If the dental implants gets anchored very well in some cases an immediate provisional teeth can be fixed at the same time. This is particularly useful when front teeth are being replaced.
  • It involves uncovering the dental implant and attaching a pillar to each dental implant which will serve as the foundation on which the teeth will be placed.
  • Placement of the new teeth to suit individual needs to provide a natural appearance.

Teeth over these implants can be either fixed or removable depending on the individual needs. In both instances, the teeth will be fixed securely so as to enjoy everyday life without worry. It is also possible to permanently anchor small sections of missing teeth either in the front or the back.
