Dental implants are one of the most technologically advanced methods for replacing missing teeth, and can restore your smile with a beautiful and functional solution. The team of professionals at Dash Dental Spa provides high-quality dental implants at their spa-like office in Beverly Hills, California. To get started, simply schedule a visit at the Los Angeles office by calling or booking online.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that work to replace missing teeth in your smile. Your dentist or oral surgeon surgically embeds them in your jawbone, where they serve as a strong and functional support for a restoration like a crown, bridge, or dentures.
Dental implants are made from biocompatible materials, like titanium or ceramic. Your body doesn’t recognize these materials as foreign substances, so your bone tissue fuses with your implant as you heal from the surgery to place them.
This process is called osseointegration, and once it’s complete, your implant works as an incredibly strong and sturdy anchor for holding the rest of your restoration in your mouth.
Dental implants have a number of advantages, including:
The biggest advantage of dental implants, however, is that they mimic the structures of your natural teeth, which has a number of benefits to your overall oral health.
Unlike bridges or dentures, which don’t connect to your jawbone, dental implants provide the bone tissue in your jaw with healthy stimulation. This prevents your jawbone from deteriorating, which can otherwise lead to a sunken-in appearance in your face.
Depending on the condition of your oral health, Dash Dental Spa can sometimes offer immediate implants that are placed and completed in a single day. For most people, however, getting implants is a multistep process that requires a few visits spread out over many months.
First, your dentist or oral surgeon makes an incision in your gum, drills a hole in your jawbone, and places your dental implant in your jaw.
Once you heal from this surgery, and your dental implant has fused with your jawbone, you come back to install your abutment, which is a tiny post that connects to your implant and sticks up out of your gumline, where it eventually attaches to your restoration.
With your abutment in place, your dentist takes an impression of your mouth that’s used to create your restoration. Once your restoration has been fabricated, your dentist seals it in place, giving you a functional and beautiful tooth replacement.
