Dentist in Upland, CA – Questions About Dental Implants

A dental implant replaces a missing tooth. An implant is actually an artificial tooth root that is inserted into the jaw – a restoration, such as a crown, is screwed into this tooth root to fill the hole left by the missing tooth. Dental implants are a great option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to gum disease, cavities, or injuries. Our dentist in Upland, CA, wants to answer some common questions about dental implants.

What Are Dental Implants Made Of?

Dental implants are generally made of titanium, which is a strong, biocompatible metal. The titanium implant fuses to the natural bone in your jaw. Dental implants have been used for more than 40 years; they are safe, effective, and can even stimulate bone growth to improve the health of the jawbone!

Do You Really Need to Replace a Tooth?

According to the American Dental Association, it is necessary to replace a missing tooth. Leaving space between teeth can negatively impact the way you chew and speak. The adjacent teeth may shift into the empty space, which can cause bite problems and even change the appearance of your face, making your cheeks appear hollow and sunken in. In certain cases, bone loss can occur around a missing tooth.

Procedure & Aftercare

During your procedure, you can be sedated, partially sedated, or just numbed. After your implant is placed, it can take several months to fully fuse with the jawbone as the bone around the implant heals. Each case is different, and every patient has a different experience with their procedure and healing process. We can advise you more on the process during your consultation!
