Your Sacramento Option for Dental Implants
When it’s necessary to replace an entire tooth or more, and you have healthy gums and bone, you are wise to consider dental implants. Dental implants will not only restore the tooth or teeth you have lost, but they help to preserve your gums, your jawbone, the shape of your face and the position of your remaining teeth.
How do implants work? The name tells it all. First, a metal anchor, usually titanium, is implanted in the jaw for each missing tooth. To ensure the replacement tooth is stable, the anchor must fuse to the bone. This process can take up to three months, but this time is essential for making the implant completely secure. The implant is then crowned with an artificial tooth, becoming a permanent and comfortable part of your mouth. Multiple anchors can be used to install bridges or dentures, also working to preserve the precious bone in your jaw.
