If you have lost one or more teeth, a dental implant may be the restoration you need. Dental implants are designed to a permanent fixture that restores your smile to its strong, comfortable state. The procedure for a dental implant includes three important steps.
• First, a titanium screw known as an implant posit is inserted into your jawbone. Our dentist, Dr. Mario J. Roybal, will work closely with a specialist to ensure that this can be done as efficiently and comfortable as possible. After some time, the bone will fuse with the implant post to provide a strong foundation.
• Next, an abutment is fixed on top of the screw.
• Finally, our friendly dentist will attach a dental restoration. Based on your individual circumstances, your dentist may recommend a dental crown, dental bridge, partial denture, or a complete denture to complete your smile.
Aside from enhancing the beauty of your smile, a dental implant can be useful for anchoring a dental bridge, preventing your natural teeth from shifting, and to restore your smile to its optimal look and comfort.
