Dental implants offer a long-lasting and lifelike solution for minor and advanced cases of tooth loss. However, the process of placing and restoring them could mean multiple visits and several months before we complete your new tooth. However, your Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dentist offers a complete smile same-day with implant dentistry!
The Same-Day Difference
Typically, we insert the dental implant into the jawbone during one appointment. Then, we wait three to six months for the biocompatible titanium implant to bond with the jawbone, a process known a osseointegration. Afterward, we attach an abutment that holds the restoration in place, finishing the tooth. If you need dentures, then we insert multiple dental implants and wait months before attaching your prosthetic. However! The same-day process is different. We place smaller dental implants, which need less jawbone tissue to stay secure. We then attach an abutment and crown, or prosthetic, in the same visit. You leave with a full smile, never living a gap while osseointegration takes place.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Unlike other prosthetics, these stimulate the growth of jawbone tissue, preventing the loss of density that follows tooth loss and often requires prosthetics to be replaced every few years. Instead, your new teeth could last for decades, possibly even a lifetime, with proper care and attention. The stability means they never to be removed for cleaning or soaking, and that they never slip when you eat or speak. You can eat your favorite foods again, and enjoy a new tooth that looks and feels natural.
Protecting Your Remaining Natural Teeth
With routine care, our team will help you protect your remaining natural teeth from the factors that cause tooth loss, such as periodontal disease or cavities or infections. We suggest a visit every six months so we can remove plaque from your smile and examine your teeth and gums to monitor your oral health. At home, be sure you brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes using a fluoride toothpaste, and floss every night before going to bed. Cut back on sugary foods and drinks, and also avoid tobacco use too. If you have any questions about protecting natural teeth, or addressing tooth loss in one appointment with same-day dental implants, then contact out team today.
