Restore Your Smile With Dental Implants

Teeth go missing for a variety of reasons, but regardless of why they fall out, the space left behind will benefit from a restoration. If you have been searching for a long-lasting tooth replacement option, visit your Camarillo, CA, dentist, Dr. Michael McCarthy, DDS, to learn if dental implants are right for you.


What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically positioned into the jawbone underneath the gums. They have three components: the screw, the abutment, and the crown. The dental crown is the only visible part, and it's formulated to resemble your natural tooth. Dental implants provide stable support for artificial teeth, and because they are permanently placed, they won't shift in the mouth. They are also the only dental restoration option that preserves natural bone and does not need to be anchored to other teeth.


How Dental Implants Work

Dental implants can replace a single tooth or restore your entire smile. Because bone loss accompanies tooth loss, your facial muscles can begin to sag when teeth are missing. That can be detrimental to your confidence, self-esteem, and oral health. Dental implants work to restore a tooth to its natural function, meaning you can smile, laugh, and talk without worrying about your teeth. They provide convenience, durability, enhanced comfort, and an improved appearance, so you can get back to enjoying life.


What to Expect from the Procedure

During your initial consultation, you and your Camarillo, CA, dentist, Dr. Michael McCarthy, DDS, will discuss your ultimate goals during the smile design process. He will perform an oral examination and take an X-ray screening to ensure that you have healthy gums and adequate bone support for a successful dental implant. The steps of the procedure will vary, based on the type of implant you select, but typically require a few visits to complete. During the surgery, damaged teeth are removed, and the jawbone takes time to heal. When you are ready, a permanent implant is inserted and allowed time to fuse to your gums.
