Dental implants replace missing teeth, which can occur naturally or through gum disease, infection, decay, or trauma. They are surgically inserted into the jawbone and fuse with the natural tissue, becoming a permanent part of your mouth. In contrast to dentures, they do not slip or irritate the mouth.
Dental implants are available in Mission Viejo and exhibit the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. They are created from metal, which is compatible with jaw bone. As a result, the implant is able to fuse easily with the underlying bone.
This treatment, when performed by an experienced oral surgeon or implant dentist, can create successful, long lasting results. The treatment involves a restorative and cosmetic phase. It is important to discuss your specific case with your doctor. To schedule your consultation, please call our office today.
