Dental Implants Introduction
For years, the people of Camarillo who have lost teeth have had to resort to wearing a removable denture or have bridgework or go toothless. But now, thank goodness, we have a fantastic alternative that is as close to getting those precious teeth back as we could ever have imagined. Our patients love them and that makes it so rewarding for us at Camarillo Smiles.
Are you missing a permanent tooth? Do you have gaps in your smile? Do you wear dentures and experience some of the following problems:
- Slipping and clicking while talking?
- Irritation and pain when you chew?
- Fear of eating in public?
- Feeling or looking older than your age?
Dental implants really can help. A dental implant is an artificial root that can then be used to secure a denture or a replacement tooth or bridge. The results are natural-looking teeth that look, feel, and function as your own!
Healthy teeth are a gift we often take for granted. Losing one or more teeth impacts our smile, our confidence, and our enjoyment of our favorite foods. Dental implants are technology's way of taking us a step closer to replacement teeth that feel secure and look like our own.
What Is Involved in Getting Dental Implants?
The implant process takes several steps, but you will be able to continue your regular professional and social routines. Initially, the we will evaluate your mouth, teeth, and jaw to determine whether implants are a good option for you.
For most patients, there are two surgical procedures involved. First, in the actual implant placement, the implants are surgically inserted into or atop the jawbone. Over the next three to six months, the implants are left alone, so that the anchor can bond to the bone, creating a strong foundation for the teeth to come.
Second, the new tooth or teeth are created and attached to the anchored implant. You now have teeth that might as well be nature's own: they look natural, are comfortable, and withstand the rigors of grinding and chewing. No one will know that your tooth has an artificial, man-made tooth root.
Proven Technology for a New Quality of Life
Technology gets the credit for this exciting alternative to missing teeth, dentures, and bridges. Researchers noticed in the 1950s that titanium and some other materials formed a strong bond to the bone. That gave rise to the use of dental implants. Today, there are patients who have had implants for more than 25 years. Dr. Czubiak has been restoring missing teeth with implants for over 20 years. Hundreds of thousands of dental implants have now been inserted, boasting more than a 90% success rate! Metal joint implants used in other parts of the body were actually developed from the success of dental implants.
