Implant Dentistry in Vista, North County
Implant Dentist Dr. Coleman restores missing teeth for fully-functional, attractive smiles
Tooth loss can have a profound effect on your smile. Not only does it change your appearance, it can also have an impact on your self-confidence and your overall well being. Even if you've just lost one tooth, the impact of this shouldn't be underestimated. That's because you aren't just losing a tooth, you're also losing the root that went with it. As a result, where your jaw once had a root there to stimulate new bone growth, there isn't anything there now, which leads, over time, to bone loss. As more bone is lost over time, other teeth will become vulnerable. There are restorative options you can turn to for help, of course, but only one of these will replace your missing tooth and your missing root-dental implants.
For patients who have lost one or more teeth, dental implants may be just the service you need to help you restore your smile's functionality, appearance, and strength. But maybe you're not sure if you're a candidate for implant dentistry. As your Vista implant dentist, Dr. Coleman and his experienced team can help you. Using Astra Tech dental implants, we can help patients who have experienced tooth loss, whether because of poor oral health or an injury, enjoy a natural, healthy smile again. Astra Tech has developed one of the most trusted and effective dental implant systems currently available. Finally, you can smile again, thanks to Astra Tech and Dr. Coleman.
The Dental Implants Process
The implant dentistry process is divided into two phases—placement and restoration. During the placement phase, your Astra Tech dental implants will be carefully and precisely placed into your jawbone. Astra Tech’s dental implants are made from titanium, a biocompatible metal. They're job is to act like prosthetic roots. Once they've been inserted in your jaw, they will begin to bond with it. This process takes time, but it's an important part of restoring your smile. It's because of this bond that your smile will have a strong foundation going forward. With your implants in place, your jawbone will have the stimulation it needs to continue producing new bone tissue, preserving the rest of your smile in the process.
After your dental implants have had time to fuse with your jaw, the second phase of your Vista implant restoration can begin. During the second phase, Dr. Coleman will finish your procedure by restoring your implants. It's here that your custom-made restoration will be attached to your implants. At Dr. Coleman's Vista and North County dental office, we can use implant dentistry to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, and even a row of teeth. That makes dental implants one of the most versatile restorative dentistry options currently available. If you need any help at all with implant dentistry in Vista and North County, Dr. Coleman and his experienced team can help you.
