Dental Implants in San Diego, CA


Missing teeth can make you feel awkward while you eat, talk, or smile, and may even develop oral health issues as well. Despite advancements in oral care, zillions of people suffer tooth loss, majorly due to tooth damage, periodontal issues, or severe injury.

The only treatment options provided to people with missing teeth for several years were bridges and dentures. But, today, dental implants are an excellent solution for enhancing your dental health and have witnessed an upsurge in popularity.

The innovation of new technology and progress in the medical and dental care industry has also made dental implantation a less risky and more reliable substitute to popular options of the past. They will completely look, feel and function as naturally as your original teeth.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are false tooth roots. They are titanium cylinders that look like screws. The dentist surgically fixes them into your jawbone where there are missing teeth below the gums.

Implants are built of Titanium, which is biocompatible. This means it is naturally accepted by the body. And you do not need to fret about any allergic reactions! Once the dentist installs them, they get affixed to your natural bone. The healing period may take from 6 to 12 weeks.

The Implants act as a firm base and give support to one or more artificial teeth, called ‘crowns’. In place of one or more separate crowns, few patients may have attachments positioned on the implant that preserve and support a removable denture.

Types of Dental Implants

Dental implants can be available in various sizes, heights, and kinds. Our dentist, Dr. Albadri can help you determine which type is apt for you, based on your specific requirements. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry states two types of dental implants to be safe.
  • Endosteal implants (in the jawbone) – This is one of the most commonly used implants. The dentist surgically inserts as a substitute on patients with bridges or removable dentures.

  • Subperiosteal implants (on the bone) – the dentist provides this type of implant to patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and have insufficient bone height.

What are the Benefits of Implants?

It gives you long-lasting, completely functional alternatives for your missing teeth without harming your other natural teeth.
As Dental Implants attach with bone, they become permanent. Since they feel and look like your original teeth, you can get back your natural smile.
In general, they do have a success rate of 95 to 98 percent. When you practice healthy oral habits, they can last a lifetime.
They can safeguard the health of your jawbone, unlike fixed bridges. Because the dental implant replaces the natural tooth root, the jawbone will once again receive stimulation and stop further degradation.
With Implants you don’t have to worry while speaking that teeth might slip, which happens in the case of dentures.
Though implants tend to be a costly process upfront, the thing you should take note of is that this is a one-time expense. When you practice proper oral care, implants don’t need any more repair or replacement. They are durable and stay for a lifetime. In short, you will truly save money in the long run.
When you chew and bite with implants, it is equal to chewing with your original teeth. They allow you to enjoy your favorite foods without any restrictions.
You do not need any messy adhesives to keep them in position.
