If you are missing one or more teeth, Inglewood Family Dental can help! There are some reasons why patients have missing teeth. Advanced gum disease, tooth decay, trauma or injury, and failed root canal procedures are common reasons as to why you might have missing teeth.
At Inglewood Family Dental, we believe that dental implants are one of the best ways to replace missing teeth. Not only are dental implants naturally similar to your smile, but they also provide a long-term solution for your oral health and wellness.
Dental implant treatment is a multi-step procedure that first requires oral surgery to place them into your bone. After the initial surgical placement of the dental implant, we allow time for them to heal.
The healing process typically takes an average of three to six months. During this time the dental implant post fuses with your bone, in a process known as osseointegration, creating a strong base to support your dental crown.
Once the healing period is complete, we finish the restoration with a custom porcelain dental crown. We will match the shade to your existing teeth—no one will ever know that you have an implant.
