Would you like to learn about dental implants from your Fresno, CA, dentist?

Dr. Curt Posey provides his patients with dental implants to replace missing tooth roots. Dental implants not only fill the missing space, but they are crucial for the structural integrity of your jawbone. The alternative before dental implants were dentures but dental implants have new and improved features compared to dentures.

Dental implants are tooth-like structures placed in the area of the missing tooth. The tooth consists of a titanium post that your Fresno dentist inserts in the jaw to osseointegrate, or fuse, with the rest of the jawbone. There's a a screw and an abutment that hold a porcelain crown in place, anchoring the crown to the titanium post.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

  • Dental implants have 95% success rate compared to other dental appliance, making it one of the most successful procedures.
  • They also restore speech function, as well as bite and chewing functions, and unlike other dental appliances they don't constantly slip out of place.
  • Implants reinforce the jaws when they fuse to bones, preventing cheekbone sinkage, or the recession of natural bone.
  • Dental implants are comfortable and convenient for while you're eating, and definitely improve your self-esteem by rejuvenating your smile.

Unfortunately, dental implants are not for everyone. People with a poor immune system and improper bone density. You also need to maintain a healthy oral regimen or else you may suffer from extreme tooth decay that may cause tooth loss and require yet another dental implant.

Caring for implants is not different than caring for other natural teeth. Brush and floss everyday using fluoride-containing products to combat bacterial production and decay.
