Dental implants are a lasting option to restore your smile. In fact, they can grow to be strong and durable enough to last an entire lifetime. That is why Dr. Richard Goble here in Fallbrook, California, is proud to talk to you about dental implants and how they can restore your smile.
Dental implants are created from titanium, which is incredibly strong and uniquely compatible with the human body. The way this process begins is these titanium posts are surgically placed in your jaw where your tooth is missing. In time, the implant will fuse with your bone naturally, which acts as a root of your tooth. The healing process can take up to several weeks to fully heal and fuse to your bone; however, when it is healed, you will come back in to complete the restoration.
Once the dental implant heals completely, an artificial tooth called a crown will be created for you. The dental crown can be fitted and matched to your natural teeth blending into your other teeth. This can complete your smile for years to come.
