Dental implants are a form of tooth replacement that we might view as innovative and new. However, archeological discoveries have shown that various forms of implants have been attempted, dating back to early Maya civilization. In early efforts, implants would be crafted from shell and other natural resources. Today, the dental implants most commonly used are made from titanium. This material is ideal, because it easily fuses with healthy bone, creating the foundation needed for functional, stable chewing.
The design of modern-day dental implants is intended to mimic natural tooth structure closely. Once the titanium implant post has become fused into bone in the jaw, it serves as a viable anchor for a dental crown, bridge, or full denture appliance.
When dental implants are needed, your dental team at Löberg Professional Dental Corporation in Laguna Hills works to create a smooth process that is easy and comfortable. After a thorough consultation and plan creation, implants are precisely inserted into the jawbone. Under local anesthetic, the area is completely numb and no discomfort is felt. Patient comfort is a priority in our dental practice, and we are happy to incorporate IV sedation into the dental implant process to facilitate a higher level of comfort.
Following the initial placement of the titanium implant post, the natural fusing process, called osseointegration, will occur over several months. One the implant becomes stabilized in the jawbone we can place the restoration over it for completion of the process.
The dental team at Löberg Professional Dental Corporation has the extensive background in restorative care to design a smooth implant treatment plan based on your specific needs. We understand that losing a tooth or teeth can be stressful. We encourage you to discuss any questions or concerns you have. You are an important part of your own care plan, and we want you to feel confident moving forward.
Of the various forms of tooth replacement, dental implants have been shown to be the most permanent, stable option. From the very first implants, made from shells, to today’s modern titanium models, this form of treatment has evolved to a healthy, attractive, long-lasting option.
