Benefits of Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root which is made out of titanium and can be used to replace a missing tooth. Implants can provide an alternative to dentures, as they mirror the feel and appearance of a natural tooth. Our dentist will work with you to find the right treatment option to meet your specific needs.

A few benefits of dental implants is that they allow you to:

  • Improve your facial structure
  • Achieve a confident smile
  • Speak and eat normally

Understanding the Dental Implant Procedure

To have an implant placed, you must visit the dentist several times over a few months. After the initial consultation, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and jaws, as well as X-rays. This allows us to gain information about the condition of your gum tissue and bone, as well as where the implant should be placed. A surgical procedure is required to place the implant into the jawbone. Once the implant has fully healed and fused, which may take up to six months, we can use a post to hold the artificial tooth in place.

How to Care for Your New Implants

After your final visit, our dentist will provide you with specific care instructions. We can also answer any questions during this time. Implants should be taken care of the same way you care for your natural teeth, with regular flossing, brushing, and gargling. Practicing good oral hygiene and visiting the dentist regularly can significantly increase the lifespan of your implants. If a problem arises with your implants at any time, our Woodland Hills dentist at Mulholland Dental Care can see you promptly to resolve it.
