Dental implants are unique replacement teeth that—like natural teeth—are embedded into the patient’s jawbone with a dental root. This means that the dental implant stays in place permanently. The dental implant is supposed to look and feel like a natural tooth—once it is in place, you can resume your regular life without having to worry about your replacement tooth at all!
Because the dental implant is surgically implanted into the jawbone, you want to make sure that your dental implant looks and functions perfectly. Our Glendale dental team works hard to ensure that our patients love their post-treatment smiles with dental implants.
First, we will recommend what size of dental implant is appropriate for your needs. When choosing the size of implant root you will use, we consider the space in which the implant root will sit, the ultimate size of your dental restoration, and the strength and density of your jawbone.
Then, we will create your dental implant restoration, which will sit above the gum tissue on top of the implant root. This restoration is tailored to fit your smile exactly.
· The size of your dental implant restoration will coordinate with your natural teeth, and completely fill the space left open by your lost tooth.
· Your dental implant restoration will also be colored and shaded to blend with your existing teeth. When your dental implant is finished, it will be a seamless addition to your smile.
· Our dental team will also make sure that the shape of your crown mirrors the shapes of your natural teeth. This is important so that your smile will look and function ideally.
