If you have lost teeth, Dr. Raymond del Castillo may recommend replacing them with dental implants. Implants are a significant advancement in tooth replacement options and dental technology, offering a long-term and aesthetically pleasing solution for those seeking to replace missing teeth. Whether you are replacing a single tooth, several teeth, or an entire arch of teeth, implant dentistry provides a foundation for permanent tooth replacement that looks, feels, and functions exactly like your natural teeth.

Secure Your Smile with Dental Implants

The implant process begins with the surgical placement of an implant post directly into your jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This post is usually made of titanium or another biocompatible material, and works to replace the tooth root and provide a sturdy foundation for your teeth and smile. There is then a period of healing known as osseointegration, during which the jawbone grows around and bonds with the implant post. This ensures the stability and longevity of the implant.

Once you have healed, the next step involves creating a custom implant restoration to cap the post. Depending on your needs, this restoration could be a dental crown, a bridge or a denture. Your restoration will be carefully designed to fit your mouth and smile perfectly, restoring both function and aesthetics to your smile.

Benefits of Implants

Opting for dental implants offers numerous benefits:

  • Durability and Stability: Implants provide a stable base for dental prosthetics, significantly reducing the risk of slippage or movement.
  • Natural Look and Feel: Designed to mimic your natural teeth, implants offer a comfortable and seamless fit.
  • Longevity: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a cost-effective solution in the long run.
  • Bone Health: By stimulating bone growth, implants help to preserve the jawbone and maintain facial structure.
