Dental Implants in San Pedro, CA
Dental implants are a great option for patients who are missing teeth. Tooth loss—due to decay or injury—impacts bite, tooth alignment, and often the patient’s self-confidence. The dental staff at Smile Emporium uses the best in dental implant technology.
What Are Dental Implants?
Receiving dental implants is a surgical procedure performed to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are very small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone. These metal posts act as substitutes for the missing tooth root. The jaw bone grows and attaches to the titanium, creating a strong foundation for the artificial tooth. Small posts that are left on the surface of the gum are then attached to the implant and hold in place the artificial tooth.
Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants require two separate procedures. The first procedure involves placing the titanium post into the jaw bone. After three to six months, the jaw bone and the post have adhered, and the implant is ready to support the artificial tooth. Both surgeries are performed in our comfortable, state-of-the-art office.
