Congratulations on taking the first steps toward replacing your teeth. If you have gone without teeth for some time, you may have experienced the challenges, hassles, and discomfort firsthand.
Whether you have lived without teeth for a few months or a few years, by replacing them you are avoiding:
Dental bridges have traditionally been a go-to method to replace one or a few teeth. This option, however, requires adjacent teeth be trimmed to accommodate crowns, a necessary step as neighboring teeth will support the artificial tooth designed to fill the gap. In some circumstances, bridges may not be an option, as other teeth must support the artificial tooth or pontic, effectively bridging the space.
Dentures have been the go-to method to replace many or all teeth. While modern dentures may be worlds apart from the traditional discomfort and slipping associated with those of yesteryear, you may benefit from a hybrid approach — which includes dental implants.
Generally, dental implants may replace one, a few, many, or all teeth. They do so by rebuilding the entire tooth as opposed to just the part above the gumline. The implant itself is a small artificial tooth “root” made from durable and biocompatible of titanium.
This titanium root fuses with the bone in a safe and natural process. After this process is complete, Dr. Leif E. Löberg will add the “rest” of the tooth or crown. The implant and crown are joined via a small connector, known as an abutment.
If you need to replace many or all teeth, Dr. Löberg may recommend a conventional denture stabilized by a few dental implants. This approach enables you to have all the benefits of dental implants, namely the stability that comes with such a secure fit.
A procedure offered by Dr. Löberg and his team is known as All-on-Four or Teeth in a Day. This concept also makes use of dental implants, allowing toothless or soon-to-be toothless clients to get a fixed, full-arch prosthesis atop four implants on the day of surgery. Dr. Löberg’s patients can quite literally walk in his convenient Laguna Hills location with no teeth and walk out with a luminous, natural-looking smile.
Another benefit across many types of restorations is Löberg Professional Dental Corporation can create and apply permanent crowns, bridges and other restorations in one appointment. This same-day dentistry is made possible with E4D dental technology.
Most practices would make you wait a few weeks for these restorations to be made by an outside lab. Discover convenient tooth replacement in Laguna Hills by calling 949.586.1930 to schedule an appointment.
