How Do Dental Implants Work?

Millions of Americans continue to suffer the loss of their teeth for a number of reasons, including (but not limited to): injury, gingivitis and tooth decay due to lack of care.

For those suffering from these ailments, dental implants are a fine solution to the problem. And fortunately, an implant functions just like a natural tooth.

These implants are made to function like your natural teeth; this purpose of design leads to improved comfort, improved speech, a more natural appearance, more comfortable chewing, and increased durability compared to dentures. And like natural teeth, they are permanent, rather than removable.

If you are a candidate for cosmetic dental implants in Studio City, our trained professionals will develop a treatment plan that is specifically tailored to your individual needs. We will implant a tooth root into the bone socket of the tooth that is missing.

Your jawbone will grow around this implant over a period of around 9 weeks, eventually anchoring it into the jaw. Following this process, a connecting post will be secured to attach the new tooth to the implant. The new tooth will be created based on a model of your bite so it looks, feels and functions just like your old natural tooth.

This helps with chewing, speaking and any other functions of the tooth. You will not have to go through any adjustment period because dental implants do not differ at all from natural teeth, except that they are not natural.

Dental implants are also impervious to cavities. However, this does not mean that you should not care for your teeth anymore. To ensure that your teeth truly are permanent, you will still need to care for them properly. Proper care includes brushing at least twice a day with a soft brush, flossing regularly and using an antibacterial mouthwash.
