Imagine what it would be like to eat your favorite foods normally again. Think of how you would feel to smile and laugh with confidence once more. An implant can give all that back to you without the hassle removable prosthetics can cause. It’s probably the closest you could come to having your natural tooth back in terms of look and function. Dr. Timothy Shen and the rest of his team are excited to restore smiles with the help of dental implants!

What Is A Dental Implant?

Elderly asian couple enjoying lunch because of good dental implants they received at their San Diego dentist Dr. Shen at Trinity Family Dental.An implant is a small metal screw that takes the place of a missing tooth. It’s made from titanium, a kind of material your body can accept as its own. The implant is secured in the jawbone beneath the gums and it supports the crown, which is the part that shows when you smile.

Having a dental implant placed is not as involved as it may seem. For your procedure, you can even opt to have oral or nitrous sedation to keep you relaxed. Most patients report that getting an implant was easier than having a tooth extracted. You won’t feel much discomfort at all.

Expect at least 3-4 months of healing before your implant is ready to bear weight. While you wait, you’ll have the option of wearing a removable prosthetic to address any aesthetic concerns.

Why You Should Think About Getting A Dental Implant

Clearly, you need something to fill in that gap in your smile. But why choose an implant over other treatment options? Consider that dental implants:

  • Are permanent, secure, and non-removable
  • Preserve tooth alignment
  • Support the bone in your mouth, preserving the shape of your smile
  • Prevent further bone loss
  • Are capable of normal biting and chewing forces
  • Can be as easy to care for as your natural teeth

How Many Teeth Can Be Replaced?

Implants are capable of supporting the weight of multiple teeth. We may recommend options such as:

  • Single implants with a crown to replace individual teeth
  • Implant supported CEREC bridges, use as few as two implants to replace multiple teeth
  • Implant retained removable overdenture, provides added security to your new or existing denture
  • Hybrid partials, a clasp-free removable partial that attaches over your implant

You might only need implant posts that are a little smaller in diameter!
