Dental Implants in La Verne, CA

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are essentially artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into your jawbone. They provide a strong and stable foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The dental implant consists of three parts: the implant itself, the abutment, and the dental crown. The implant itself serves as the “root” of your new tooth, and it supports a crown or bridge on top of it, depending on how many teeth are missing. 

Most dental implants are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible material that fuses with your jawbone. Once implants are placed, they’ll look and act just like your natural teeth. In fact, they’re even stronger than anatomical teeth.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

If you have missing teeth, you may experience difficulty chewing, speaking, and even smiling. In addition to impacting your self-esteem, missing teeth can have a huge effect on your dental health. Fortunately, dental implants are an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth! Dental implants are a popular and effective option for replacing missing teeth for many reasons:

#1. Oral Health

When you lose a tooth the bone around the socket begins to resorb (demineralize). The jawbone requires mechanical action to remineralize itself. With dentures, bridges, and partials, you simply don’t get that action. That is why dental implants help preserve more bone tissue. 

#2. Longevity

With proper care and regular checkups at Prizm Dental, there is no reason your dental implants shouldn’t last 20, 25 years, or beyond. Compare that to dentures, which require replacement around every 7 years, or a dental bridge, which may require replacement after 10 years. 

#3. Comfort

Dentures are notorious for being uncomfortable. Since dental implants are embedded in the jawbone and do not put pressure on the gums, they are considered to be the more comfortable option. 

#4. Durability

Apart from the ceramic or zirconia crown, there is not much that can go wrong with the titanium implant post or abutment. You still need to be careful with your restoration, whether it is a crown or implant-supported denture. 

#5. Appearance

Dental implant esthetics have come a long way over the past few decades. Implants can be placed below the ridge of the jawbone, which allows restorations to be placed below the gum line. Therefore, the only visible structure is the crown, which can be shaped and tinted to perfectly match the adjacent teeth.
