Ways in which a Fremont, CA area dentist may use dental implants
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and the friendly professionals of StarBrite Dental are excited to offer patients in the Fremont, CA area a variety of restorative treatments. When patients are faced with restoration of the smile following tooth loss, they are encouraged to consider the advantages of using dental implants.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed into the bone of the jaw during oral surgery. They act as a tooth root, anchored in the jaw for stability and strength. Dental implants can replace one or more teeth, depending on how they are used. These versatile restorations are commonly used in the following ways:
Single Tooth Replacement
A single tooth is easily replaced with a dental implant. The implant is placed into the bone of the jaw right where the tooth is missing. This stimulates bone growth during a process called osseointegration. After the bone wraps around the implant and it is fully in place, the dentist places a custom dental crown over it to act as a false tooth.
Anchoring a Dental Bridge
Dental bridges require a tooth for support on each side. However, if that is not available, patients may have a dental implant put in place to anchor the bridge.
Full dentures may be problematic for patients when they aren’t stable. Implant-supported dentures offer ultimate stability!
