Choose the Best Titanium Dental Implant For a Beautiful Smile
Missing teeth not only affect the appearance of a person’s smile, it can also have a harsh impact on confidence level. Whether teeth have been lost due to natural progression of oral health or different circumstances, Dr. Derek Hauser can replace each missing tooth with the best titanium dental implant for optimum results. Dental implants can also improve quality of life, making it safer and easier to chew food completely.
Many patients that have missing teeth initially choose to allow the gaps and empty spaces to remain in their mouths without adding a bridge or dental implant. This is generally due either to cost concerns associated with dental implants or fear of the procedure itself. Prospective patients are encouraged to give us a call at (951) 244-9495 to speak with our knowledgeable staff about any questions regarding dental implants.
Which Is the Best Dental Implant and Why?
Dental implants can be constructed from a variety of materials. It has been said that the best dental implant is made out of titanium due to how well this material is able to bond with bone. Additionally, the durable nature of titanium ensures that the implants will last for years to come.
There are some variations to dental implant designs within the mouth. Some implants are designed in a manner that allows the abutment (top portion of the implant) to be removed as needed, while others are designed to be a permanent fixture within the mouth. These differences depend on the patient’s need and preferences. Dr. Hauser will discuss the best options for your oral needs.
Generally, dental implants feature a titanium screw at the base, which may vary in length. This portion of the implant is inserted into a socket within the jaw and is then followed by attaching a piece known as an abutment, which provides a connection for a crown or dentures. As healing occurs, the titanium present in the screw portion of the implant will begin to fuse with the bone in the jaw.
Are Dental Implants Right for You?
Dental implants are one of the most preferential ways to remedy the issue of missing teeth. However, they are not for everyone. In order to be eligible for dental implants, patients must have good oral health with no presence of tooth decay or gum disease. The fitting of dental implants in a patient with gum disease can pose a large risk of infection.
Additionally, dental implants are not suitable for individuals that are under the age of 18. This is because the fitting of dental implants rely greatly upon the individual’s ability to have fully developed bone tissue that will be able to fuse properly with the titanium in the base of the implant itself.
