Van Nuys dental implants
Dental implants replace missing teeth, and they do so with benefits that the more traditional bridges and dentures are not capable of. Before you get implants from us at Van Nuys Dental Care, however, it is important to understand what qualifications are essential to your eligibility.
The two key aspects to being a good candidate for our Van Nuys dental implants
are your gums and your jaws. Gums should be generally healthy. And your jaw bone must be thick and strong enough to hold the implant reliably. There are some other considerations, including being a smoker and having diabetes. But the key is your jaw. Our implant dentist will do testing on it to find out if you qualify. In the even that your jaw does not meet the necessary standard, it doesn't mean you're out of luck. With bone grafting, your jaw can be made sufficient. Bone from elsewhere in your body or from a tissue bank is transplanted into your jaw. New bone grows around it, which strengthens it. As a result, you will be able to get our Van Nuys dental implants. So the good news is that there is an excellent chance that an implant can be used to fill that empty space where you once had a natural tooth. And they're worth the effort. First of all, they look, feel, and function just like real teeth. That's largely because they're made to mimic real teeth. An implant consists of a root, which is represented by the titanium post placed in your jaw; and a tooth-colored crown that is cemented to the top of it. Second, there is every reason to be confident that an implant will last a lifetime, so long as you take care of it.
