Dental Implants in Burbank, CA
Dental implants are built to provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function exactly like your original teeth. If a person has missing teeth, he or she can eat almost anything and smile wide again, knowing that his or her artificial teeth look natural and that the facial structure will be preserved because of these implants. The implants are simply small titanium posts that the dentist inserts into the jaw bone where your teeth are missing. Over time, your bone fuses with the titanium, forming a strong foundation for your artificial teeth. Furthermore, dental implants can help retain your facial structure by avoiding bone loss that occurs after tooth loss.
Dental implants are changing people’s lives! People are regaining the confidence and security to eat, laugh, speak and enjoy life because of these implants.

DENTAL IMPLANT PROCEDURE
Dental implants are metal anchors that function as artificial tooth roots. These implants are surgically integrated into your jaw bone. Small posts are attached to the implants that protrude through the gum tissues. These posts provide a stable foundation for your artificial replacement teeth.
For most patients, two surgical procedures are required to insert dental implants. The first step is to insert them into your jawbone. The first three to six months are crucial. The implant is slowly fusing with your jawbone at this stage. During this time you will be advised to wear temporary dentures and eat a soft diet. Your restorative dentist is also working simultaneously and creating the final bridgework or denture. This will improve the looks and function of your oral cavity.
The second stage begins after the implant has completely merged with the jaw bone. The surgeon will reveal the implants and attach a small healing collar before proceeding with the creation of your new teeth. A picture must be taken. Following this attachments or posts are fixed to the implants. The replacement teeth are then designed to fit over those attachments or posts. The entire procedure takes somewhere between six to eight months. Most patients face no disruptions in their daily activities due to this procedure.
