If you have missing teeth, you may be tired of living with restrictions on what you can eat and not being able to speak clearly. Even if you’ve tried tooth restoration options like dental bridges or dentures, you may have found that you still don’t have the complete function of your teeth as you did before you had tooth loss. Fortunately, there is another option available with dental implants. You can find this treatment at Jordan and Pham Dentistry in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA.
Dental implants are small metal posts that replace the root of your tooth. The dental prosthetic, such as a crown, bridge, or fixed denture, is then fixed to the implants to restore the function and appearance to your smile.
There are two main parts of dental implants, one part is below the gums and one part is above the gums. The surgical portion of the dental implant is placed first, below the gums, and allowed to heal over the course of several months. Once the implant has integrated into the jaw, you are ready for the tooth portion of your implant.
