Have you experienced tooth loss? One of the largest consequences to losing a tooth is how it can lead to the deterioration of your jawbone. To offset this destructive effect, dental experts have long been using dental implants as a reinforcement, and your dentist in Lancaster, CA, Dr. Roland Markarian, knows firsthand both how beneficial this procedure can be and how to perform it. If you are interested in getting a dental implant, here's what you need to know about the process:

Dental Implant Procedure

A local anesthetic is applied to the area that will undergo the procedure. Your dentist will then remove any decayed tooth that may be remaining and insert a titanium post into the jawbone. The titanium post acts as the new tooth root and is biocompatible, so there is no worry of tissue rejection. The doctor will then surgically close the area and allow it to heal for a period of 3 to 6 months while osseointegration takes its full course (this is the process where titanium fuses to the jawbone to provide reinforcement). When you return, your Lancaster dentist will re-open the area, insert an abutment, and place a crown over the abutment that matches the rest of your teeth.

Advantages of Dental Implants

  • They anchor dentures.
  • They fill gaps in your teeth.
  • They look natural and give you a beautiful smile.
  • At 95 percent, implants have a high success rate.
  • You won't have to worry about being able to bite into and chew your favorite foods.
  • They don't slip out of place like dentures, which makes them comfortable and practical.
  • They provide your jawbone with the support it needs so that it doesn't shrink.

Caring for Dental Implants

  • Get professional dental cleanings and checkups every six months
  • Use fluoride-containing products like toothpaste and mouthwash to prevent gum disease and tooth decay
  • Brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day
  • Floss at least once before bed
