How Dental Implants in Van Nuys Work
If you are missing one or multiple teeth and are looking into alternatives to dental bridges or full or partial dentures, your Van Nuys dentist, Dr. Peter Suh, will let you know if you are a good candidate for dental implants.
Dental implants are a natural tooth replacement over dentures since they are beautiful tooth restoratives that attach directly to the jawbone. To benefit from dental implants, patients must be in good oral health (other than missing teeth) and have a healthy jawbone.
What are Dental Implants Like?
Dental implants look and feel more like natural teeth than dentures. A dental implant begins with a screw that replaces the tooth root of the missing tooth. Dental implants are made of biocompatible titanium that attaches to the jawbone and gum tissue.
Your dentist recommends dental implants in Van Nuys after they determine you are a good candidate for them.
The process for dental implants takes several months to heat after placing the implant and allowing it to integrate with the jawbone.
Once the healing process is done, your dentist will attach an abutment to the implant; this is where we attach dental crowns, the visible portion of your tooth.
