Got one or more missing teeth? Wondering how to restore them and your oral health? Dental implants from Dr. Gannon Lee DDS, Coto De Caza, can help. Dental implants are a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. They look and function just like natural teeth. The implant is placed into the jawbone and fuses with the jawbone during a process called osseointegration. The implant acts as an artificial tooth root, so a crown can be placed on top of that. The implant's special shape allows us to attach a crown to it so that it will function in the exact same way as a natural tooth.
Dental implants at Dr. Gannon Lee DDS, Coto De Caza
Dental implants are titanium screws that serve as replacement tooth roots. The process can take anywhere from 1-3 months to complete. First, Dr. Lee will surgically place the implant into your jawbone. Then, you will leave the implant to heal and integrate with the bone. Over the next several months, it fuses with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. A temporary crown will be placed on the implant while it heals. After the implant has integrated with your bone, Dr. Lee will create a custom crown to place onto the implant to result in a fuller smile. The implant can be used to support a dental crown, dental bridge, partial denture, or full denture.
