When patients in Redlands, CA are faced with tooth loss, they may be unsure of which restorative solution is right for them. Speaking with Dr. Terry Vines about replacements such as dental implants is one way to achieve a more attractive smile.
How can a dental implant help you?
Dental implants are titanium posts that integrate into the bone of the jaw to act as a tooth root replacement. This option is often chosen by patients who are seeking a permanent solution to a lost or extracted tooth.
Benefits of dental implants
These titanium posts are:
- Highly successful
- Easy to care for
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
Dr. Terry Vines of Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry is one of several dentists in the practice who can evaluate patients to determine if they are appropriate candidates for dental implants. Patients should have sufficient bone structure to be considered for these restorations as they need a proper foundation for successful placement. Patients without adequate bone may want to consider the advantages of moving forward with bone grafting if serious about placing implants. Otherwise, patients will want to think about alternatives that are available, including dental bridges and dentures – both solutions that can be provided by our team of professionals.
Process of obtaining implants
Prior to moving forward with oral surgery, patients need to undergo an evaluation and consultation with their dentist. Once it has been determined that patients could benefit from implants, oral surgery is performed. The bone fuses to the implant and is then restored with a crown, bridge, or denture.
