Dental Implants in Menifee, CA for a Better Quality of Life

What is the purpose of dental implants?

Dental implants and crowns are used to replace a missing tooth or teeth, helping you restore natural-looking teeth. In technical terms, dental implants are used to replace the missing roots of teeth and retain the dental crown. The advanced technology of dental implants relies on titanium rods which are attached to the jawbone. The rods function as tooth roots which merge with the jawbone and help keep the crown stable and in place. Side by Side Diagram of Tooth and Dental Implant

Why should I opt for a dental implant procedure in Menifee?

Let’s put it this way: it may be impossible to have your own teeth back, but you can have dental implants and crowns, and that truly is the next best thing.

Modern implant technology has been in use for decades and it is the best and safest course of action if you have a missing tooth or teeth. The long-term benefits of dental implants include:

  • High success rate (dental implants have a 95% long-term success rate, making this form of treatment much more reliable, effective and safe than bridges and root canals),
  • Simple care and maintenance
  • Jawbone tissue stimulation which helps prevent degeneration and deterioration (whereas a missing tooth that has not been replaced with an implant and crown leads to bone loss on account of lack of chewing forces),
  • Anesthesia options: local anesthesia, general anesthesia, IV sedation,
  • Short healing process (3 months on average), after which the dental crown can be tailor-made made using the patient’s dental impression,
  • Improved retention of a conventional denture and enhanced chewing efficiency,
  • Better quality of life: aside from restoring their jaw’s function and ability to chew, the patients become more confident due to improved aesthetic appearance.

How can dental implants in Menifee be used to retain denture?

The jawbone needs to support teeth, otherwise, it will atrophy and melt away. This is a completely natural process. A denture can further exacerbate the situation. You need a healthy jawbone to give stability to the denture, but once the bone starts to melt away, the denture starts to lose its support. Eventually, the denture becomes wobbly, loose and uncomfortable, defeating its original purpose, which is to enable the chewing process.

So how can dental implants help with that? Dental implants can help attach the denture to the jawbone and facilitate and improve its function. We are a trusted choice for patients in Menifee, Temecula, and the surrounding communities who are struggling with denture instability and want to improve their denture retention and function effectively. 

Why do I need dental implants?

Whether you are missing a single tooth or several teeth, your dental health has been compromised. Dental implants are currently the most effective way to counteract the damage done by accomplishing the following:

  • Restoring chewing functionality
  • Restoring facial appearance
  • Protecting the underlying jawbone tissue

The first two reasons are obvious, so we will focus our attention on elaborating on the third one. Namely, the jawbone tissue exists in order to hold your teeth and enable you to chew. Once you lose a tooth, the tissue no longer has the natural chewing stimulation. This marks the beginning of jawbone degradation and deterioration or the bone loss process.

So what happens if you wait too long and the degradation process gets out of hand? The bone will have melted away, and anchoring your dental implants will no longer be doable. Does it mean you will no longer qualify for dental implants? Not exactly, but the procedure will become more complicated and it will require a bone graft procedure to be carried out beforehand.

The bone graft procedure can affect the dental implant procedure in several ways:

  • Longer treatment
  • Extended recovery time,
  • Higher treatment costs.

In other words, a lost tooth should be replaced as soon as possible. In fact, it’s best to have a tooth replacement plan ready immediately after tooth extraction in order to prevent bone resorption. Besides, an experienced dental implant specialist can perform the procedure quickly and easily.

Do I qualify for dental implants?

Whether dental implants would be a suitable form of treatment in your case depends on the circumstances, such as:

  • Dental implants are used to preserve tissue, but they cannot rebuild the jawbone in case of jawbone deterioration,
  • Patients who need to rebuild jawbone have to undergo a bone grafting procedure before they are suitable candidates for dental implants,
  • Scheduling an examination with a highly qualified dental implant specialist such as Dr Tsvetov is the safest way to decide between your treatment options in order to maximize the benefits of advanced dental medicine.
