If you’re missing a tooth or need a tooth extracted, how will you replace that tooth? When multiple teeth are missing, your decision about protecting your oral health and function becomes harder. The option of dental implants to replace teeth, becomes a much easier decision. Since 1985, Dr. Kinsel has helped patients get beautifully restored and functional smiles with dental implants in San Mateo, CA.
Options for Dental Implant Treatment
Dental implants have revolutionized your treatment options; implants represent a biomechanical replacement for missing teeth. In our 30 years of experience, implants have demonstrated long-term success of over 95%. Dental implants can replace missing single teeth and can help denture-wearers eliminate their problems. Dental implant-supported restorations are made up of:
The implant – A titanium screw that is surgically implanted into the jaw. The implant is made of pure titanium, which is compatible with bone in your jaw. This allows the bone to grow around the implant.
The abutment – The abutment works as an attachment that secures your final crown or bridge onto the implant.
Crown, bridge, or denture – Depending on your needs, your dental implant can support many different prostheses to help your smile look healthy and increases the variety of foods you can eat.
The implant is a titanium screw that joins with your jaw bone (osseointegration). Generally, surgical placement of the implant is well tolerated by the patient with little to no discomfort. Next, the abutment is inserted into the implant. Abutments support crowns, fixed bridges or dentures and may be standard or customized based on each patient’s restorative requirements.
For those patients who are missing all of their natural teeth, you have another “clear choice” – an affordable option for permanent dentures supported by 4-6 implants. With implant-supported dentures from our San Mateo dental office, you can benefit from vastly improved oral function, as well as a truly natural looking smile.
