Missing a tooth can be more than just a cosmetic concern. It can affect your speech, your ability to chew comfortably, and even your self-esteem. Thankfully, Dr. Ali Alijanian, DDS, your trusted Dental Implant Specialist and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, offers a revolutionary solution: single dental implants in Walnut Creek, California.
What are Single Dental Implants?
Think of a single dental implant as a tiny, biocompatible titanium screw that acts as a replacement tooth root. This screw is surgically placed into your jawbone, where it fuses over time, providing a strong and stable foundation for a custom-crafted crown. The crown, which looks and functions just like a natural tooth, completes the restoration, giving you back a complete and confident smile.
Benefits of Choosing Single Dental Implants:
- Natural Look and Feel: Single implants are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. No more metal clasps or bulky bridges! They are one of the closest replacements to your natural teeth.
- Preserves Oral Health: Unlike traditional bridges, which require grinding down healthy teeth for support, implants preserve your natural tooth structure. They also prevent bone loss around the missing tooth, keeping your jawbone healthy and strong.
- Enhanced Comfort and Function: Implants function just like natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. No more worries about slipping dentures or slurred speech!
- Durability and Longevity: Dental implants are built to last, with success rates exceeding 95% over 10 years. With proper care, they can last a lifetime!
- Improved Self-Esteem: Regaining a complete smile can significantly boost your confidence and self-image.
The Single Dental Implant Procedure:
- Consultation and Planning: Dr. Alijanian will conduct a thorough examination and discuss your goals and candidacy for single implants. He will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
- Implant Placement: Under local anesthesia, Dr. Alijanian will gently place the titanium screw into your jawbone. The procedure is minimally invasive and typically takes less than an hour.
- Healing and Osseointegration: Over the next few months, your jawbone will naturally fuse with the implant, creating a strong and stable foundation.
- Abutment Placement and Crown Installation: Once the implant is fully integrated, Dr. Alijanian will place an abutment, which connects the crown to the implant. Finally, he will attach your custom-made crown, restoring your beautiful smile.
