Wouldn’t you like to have your full smile back again? With our dental implants in San Diego, you can do so with the state-of-the-art option. At the practice of Xusheng MU, DDS, replacing those missing teeth is simple, effective, and long-lasting.
The first step is to have an examination and consultation. There are a few points of qualification that have be met in order to be a good candidate for our dental implants in San Diego. First, your gums should be healthy. And second, your jaw bone is tested to make certain that it is sufficiently strong and thick. The reason that is important is because implants aren’t just new teeth, but new roots, as well. To make that happen, our dentist surgically places a titanium post in your jaw. Over several months, your bone tissue grows around the post, and ultimately fuses with it. Once that happens, you have a dependable foundation for your new tooth, along with preserving your normal facial contours and keeping essential gum and bone tissue from atrophying. What if your jaw bone test comes up showing you ineligible. Well, bone grafting solves the problem by spurring the growth of new and stronger bone tissue through the transplantation of bone from elsewhere in your body. The surgical placement of the post is the first step in the two step process. When fusion of bone and post is confirmed complete, our dentist takes impressions that are used to make your crown. It is tooth-colored and cemented to the top of the post. That completes our dental implants in San Diego. They look, feel, and act so much like your other teeth that you may forget you have an implant at all. With proper care, you can get a lifetime of use from them.
