While a denture or bridge can adequately restore minor chewing function, it is only a simple solution to a complex issue. Surgical intervention to replace the roots of teeth is necessary to preserve jaw bone and dental health.
Dental implants provide a complete replacement for missing teeth, from the roots up to the crowns. Romeo E. Ramos, DDS and his team at Frontier Dental offer dental implants in Concord, CA for a comprehensive replacement treatment. Implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth. Because they fit, feel and function like natural teeth, they are quickly becoming the new standard in tooth replacement.
Restoring Oral Health with Implants
Many patients do not understand that bone health and dental health are closely connected. When one or more teeth are missing, the jaw bone loses its density and volume, causing the bone to recede. Bone loss can cause a sunken appearance, making you look older, and create an unstable environment for the remaining teeth, increasing the chances for additional tooth loss.
Dental implants are technologically advanced prosthetics that attach to the jaw bone and function as replacement roots. With this procedure, titanium posts are placed directly into the jaw to provide strength and durability. The biocompatible titanium fuses to the bone and generates cohesive support for both surrounding soft and hard tissue. As a result, implants provide a stable foundation for missing or damaged teeth that look, feel, and function like your own teeth.
Personalized Dental Implant Treatment in Florham Park
We use an in-office Sirona 3-D Orthophos CBCT Imaging machine to gather a digital outline of a patient’s dental condition. This examination, as well as a review of a patient’s medical history, helps us find out if dental implants are the right choice. We then look at bone density and size, as well as the implant location and angle of placement. Dr. Ramos thoroughly explains all findings with patients. Each of these steps ensure we provide our patients the best opportunity for successful implant treatments.
Once patients have been selected as candidates for dental implants, Dr. Ramos works on creating a customized plan that is designed just for them. He performs any preliminary procedures that are necessary for implant placement, such as bone grafting, ridge augmentation, and sinus lifts.
