Dental Implants in Palmdale, CA

Dental implants are a popular and advanced solution for replacing missing teeth. They offer a more permanent and natural-looking alternative to traditional dentures and bridges. Dental implants involve surgically placing a titanium post into the jawbone, which acts as an artificial tooth root. This post provides a strong foundation for attaching a replacement tooth or crown.

Here's how Pacific Dental Care & Orthodontics dental implant process generally works:

  1. Consultation: You'll begin with a consultation with a dentist or oral surgeon. They will evaluate your oral health, review your medical history, and take X-rays or scans to determine if you're a suitable candidate for dental implants.

  2. Treatment Planning: If you're a candidate, a treatment plan will be created based on your specific needs. This plan outlines the number of implants needed, the type of restoration (crown, bridge, or denture), and other details.

  3. Surgical Placement: The dental implant procedure involves surgically placing the titanium implant post into the jawbone. This post will eventually fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration, providing stability and support for the replacement tooth.

  4. Healing Period: After the implant is placed, there is a healing period during which osseointegration occurs. This can take several months. During this time, you might be provided with a temporary restoration to maintain aesthetics and function.

  5. Abutment Placement: Once osseointegration is complete, an abutment (connector) is attached to the implant. The abutment serves as the connection between the implant and the replacement tooth.

  6. Impressions: After the abutment is placed, impressions are taken to create a custom-made crown, bridge, or denture that will be securely attached to the abutment.

  7. Final Restoration: The final restoration is fabricated to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth. Once it's ready, it is securely attached to the abutment, completing the dental implant process.

  • Improved Appearance: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, enhancing your smile's appearance.

  • Enhanced Functionality: Implants provide excellent chewing ability, allowing you to enjoy a wide range of foods without worrying about stability.

  • Bone Health: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss that can occur when teeth are missing.

  • Durability: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a long-term solution.

  • No Impact on Adjacent Teeth: Unlike bridges, which rely on neighboring teeth for support, implants don't affect nearby teeth.

However, not everyone is a suitable candidate for dental implants. Factors such as bone density, overall health, and gum condition play a role. If you're interested in dental implants, consult with a qualified dentist or oral surgeon to determine if they are the right solution for you.
