A dental implant is nothing more than a metal screw that is placed into the jawbone. It acts as an anchor for a false tooth or a set of false teeth. When a dental implant restoration is perfectly constructed, neither the patient nor anyone else should have any hint that an implant is there.

Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.

How do I get started?

Your dental implant treatment will start with a thorough examination by San Diego Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Eshom, in order to assess the perfect implant or dental solution for you needs. Dental implants are intimately connected with the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth. San Diego Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Eshom works closely with the top periodontal experts creating the ideal team for your implant treatment. You, San Diego Cosmetic dentist, Dr. Dave Eshom and our specialist will work closely together to map out your treatment plan, involving you in every step of the process. With special knowledge and training, you dental implant team will give you the teeth that look and feel just like your own.

What Can I Expect After Treatment?

As you know, your own teeth require conscientious at-home oral care and regular dental visits. Dental implants are like your own teeth and will require the same care. In order to keep your implant clean and plaque-free, brushing and flossing still apply!

After treatment, we will work closely with you to develop the best care plan for you. Periodic follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your implant, teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy. San Diego Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Eshom is available to answer all your questions.

Tooth Replacement

People who have lost teeth might feel too self-conscious to smile or talk. Additionally, biting irregularities caused by tooth loss can have a negative effect on eating habits and this can lead to secondary health problems like malnutrition. Regardless of the nature of problems related to tooth loss, dental implants may provide a simple remedy with proven results. Count on Dr. Eshom, your San Diego Cosmetic Dentist to help you understand your dental implant options.

Replacing a Single Tooth

If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.

Replacing Several Teeth

If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.Implant-supported bridges have a primary advantage over traditional bridges; when an implant is placed the bone is stimulated and preserved. With a bridge, most patients experience bone atrophy. Dental implants have enhanced longevity and are more functional and pleasing than bridges and crowns.

Replacing All of Your Teeth

If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.

Tooth loss may occur from the following:

  • Tooth decay
  • Root canal failure
  • Periodontitis (gum disease)
  • Trauma to the mouth
  • Excessive wear and tear
