If you have an incomplete smile, our team may recommend that you receive dental implants to replace your missing teeth! Our dentist can provide you new restorations that both match and enhance your overall smile. We welcome you to contact Santa Monica Esthetic Dentistry today to learn more and schedule a visit with Dr. Roshen Ganesh for dental implants in Santa Monica, California.
Dental implants are the most stable and reliable restoration option out there, and they are a great choice for anyone looking to replace missing teeth. Unlike other restoration options, such as bridges or dentures, implants simulate the whole tooth, helping to keep the jawbone healthy and your smile strong.
Dental implants are made of three main parts:
- The post. This is the part of the implant that stands in for the root of the tooth. The post is generally made from biocompatible titanium or another biocompatible metal, and it is the part of the implant that gives the restoration its stability and longevity.
- The abutment. This part of the implant connect the post and the restoration, sealing the gumline and ensuring the implant will stay healthy.
- The restoration. This is the actual crown, bridge or denture that simulates the chewing surface of the tooth. Our dentist will work with you to find which restoration option will best restore your smile.
During treatment, our dentist and team will first surgically place the post into the jawbone. After that, a period of healing will be taken to make sure the post fuses with your natural bone, creating the strong base the implant needs. Once you are completely healed, we will place the restoration, and your new smile will be complete!
