Dental implants are the standard of care for tooth replacement. Implants are a safe and effective way to repair your smile, and our team at Bloom Dental Group in San Mateo, California, provides expert dental implant care for patients of all ages.
If you’ve lost a tooth, a dental implant can restore the function and appearance of your teeth so you can enjoy a full smile again.
While crowns and bridges sit on top of damaged teeth, implants are rooted directly into where the tooth once stood to create a solid base for a new crown or bridge. Implants are designed to look like a natural tooth, so you can smile and eat normally. Since they are secured into the jawbone below, dental implants can help support nearby teeth too.
Dental implants are a long-term solution and can last permanently if cared for properly.
When you undergo a dental implant procedure, we place the artificial dental implant root directly into the jaw where the natural tooth once stood. Over time, the jaw forms new bone (osseointegration) until the dental implant is solidly in place. Dental implants can help support porcelain crowns, dental bridges, and fixed dentures.
The jaw supports the implant post as if it were a natural tooth. After placement, healing occurs until the implant is secure enough to support the permanent dental implant prosthesis. Whether a crown or bridge, each one is designed to look and feel like a natural tooth.
Dental implants are not for everyone. You must have appropriate bone levels, stable health, and limit tobacco use to receive implants, promoting healthy placement and healing for the best long-term results. In most cases, dental implants can last an entire lifetime.
When completed, dental implants can support even more weight than a real tooth. The procedure often requires multiple visits. Osseointegration usually requires 3-6 months of undisturbed healing time.
