What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are innovative and life-changing dental restorations that serve as a permanent replacement for missing teeth. These implants consist of three essential components:

  1. The Titanium Post: The foundation of the dental implant, this small but mighty component is surgically placed into your jawbone. It acts as an artificial tooth root, ensuring stability and support for the replacement tooth.
  2. The Abutment: The connector piece attaches the titanium post to the crown. It plays a vital role in holding the replacement tooth securely in place.
  3. The Crown: The visible part of the dental implant; the crown is custom-made to match your natural teeth in color, shape, and size. It serves as the functional and aesthetic replacement for your missing tooth.

Rediscovering the Joy of Food

Taste the Difference with Dental Implants

One of the most remarkable aspects of dental implants is their ability to restore not just your smile but also your ability to savor the flavors of life. Whether you’re a food enthusiast, a casual diner, or somewhere in between, dental implants can make a significant difference in your dining experience.

The Confidence to Savor Every Bite

The impact of missing teeth goes beyond the physical aspects of eating. It can also take a toll on your self-confidence. With dental implants, you can regain your confidence and fully embrace the joy of dining out with friends and family—no more worries about slipping dentures or avoiding your favorite dishes.

Preventing Nutritional Deficiencies

Missing teeth can lead to dietary restrictions, ultimately affecting your overall health. It’s not just about taste; it’s about getting the nutrients your body needs. Dental implants help you maintain a balanced diet by allowing you to enjoy a wide range of foods, ensuring you get the essential vitamins and minerals necessary for your well-being.

The Dental Implant Process

Consultation and Evaluation

Your journey to rediscovering the joy of food with dental implants begins with a consultation at Sacramento River Dental Group. During this initial visit, our experienced dental team will assess your oral health, discuss your specific needs and concerns, and determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants.

Implant Placement

If you are a candidate for dental implants, the next step is the surgical placement of the titanium post into your jawbone. This is a precise and meticulous procedure that ensures the implant integrates seamlessly with your natural bone.

Healing and Integration

After implant placement, a healing period is essential to allow the titanium post to fuse with your jawbone. This process, known as osseointegration, is what gives dental implants their remarkable stability and strength.

Abutment Placement

Once the implant has fully integrated, the abutment is attached to the titanium post. This step prepares the implant for the final crown restoration.

Custom Crown Placement

The last and most exciting step is the placement of your custom crown. Crafted to match your natural teeth, the crown is attached to the abutment, completing your dental implant and restoring both form and function.
