Ask Dr. Trujillo a Question
Benefits of Dental Implants
There are many benefits of dental implants over other tooth replacement options. The most notable benefit is the fact that your teeth look, feel, and function exactly like your other natural teeth. No one will know that your teeth are implants because we match them to the color and likeness of your other teeth. Unlike other restorative dental solutions there are no special denal care procedures. Simply care for them as you would your other teeth by brushing and flossing regularly as you do for your other teeth.
Another benefit of dental implants above other tooth replacement options is the benefit of preventing bone loss. Bone loss is an issue when loos a tooth or teeth. When a tooth is missing the body reabsorbs the bone, which can cause the loss of other teeth. Bone loss can also cause your jaw and facial structure to appear sunken in.
Lastly, dental implants can last 25+ years and the implant itself can last a lifetime with proper care (regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups).
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
Dental implants are a great solution to missing teeth. However, there are health conditions that prevent some patients from having them as an option. We examin the health of your gums and bone to make sure the procedure is a success. The patient must also have a stong determination to maintain good oral hygene. Dr. Tujillo will consult with you about the best option for your specific needs. We want the best outcome and we take your health seriously.
If you are pregnant, still have a growing jawbone, or smoke frequently, dental implants may not be the best option.
Dental implants can provide a natural appearance and function for a single missing tooth or replace a full set of dentures.
Dental Implant Procedure
When you come into our office we’ll have an evaluation with you where we will discuss your health. We’ll take a look at your teeth, take x-rays, and review your medical health. Additionally, we may recommend a CT scan if we need to understand more about the shape and strength of your jawbone. This also helps us to map out the necessary nerves and sinuses. When that is done, we can create a fitting prosthesis and begin installing the dental implants. We’ll see that your bite fits perfectly and your smile looks completely natural.
One kind of dental implants surgery we offer is called All-On-4®. All-On-4® is a revolutionary new procedure that gives you a brand new set of teeth in a day - that’s right. Just one treatment and all in just one visit! Whether you’ve suffered serious damage due to periodontal disease, or if you suffer from some other condition that has left you without many functioning teeth. All-On-4® can restore your smile.
The procedure is called All-On-4® because it features a complete dental bridge that locks in place situated on four posts. These posts are set into your bone and hold your new set of teeth right in place. This is different than dental implants that are secured tooth by tooth. Because it only requires four implants, it can also be cheaper than getting multiple implants. If you are interested in this treatment, we would love to talk to you about it!
