Dental Implants Q & A

Dental Arts of Orange County

What are dental implants?

A dental implant provides a base for a durable and natural-looking false tooth where a natural tooth is missing. Implants can replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all of your teeth.

A dental implant consists of a titanium screw that is surgically implanted into the jawbone beneath your gums. The implant fuses to your jawbone, and an abutment is attached, providing substantial support for a bridge or crown.

Dental implants can last a lifetime as long as you receive regular dental check-ups and maintain proper dental hygiene. They are a great alternative to dentures.

To be a good candidate for dental implants, you must have enough bone to support the implant and healthy gums. At Dental Arts of Orange County, Dr. Sid Tucker, an in-house periodontist, will perform the surgery to place your implants. Then Dr. Batorfalvy will create and restore your beautiful smile.

Are dental implants and dental implant surgery safe?

Dentists and dental professionals have used dental implants as a treatment method for missing teeth for more than 30 years. Dental implants are commonly made of titanium because it is a biocompatible material that is accepted by the body. They can even strengthen your jaw, promoting bone growth.

You’ll be at peace knowing that dental implant surgery ranks among the safest and most predictable operations in dentistry.  

Why should I choose dental implants?

There are numerous benefits that dental implants offer over other tooth-replacement methods. Dental implants:

  • Look, feel, and function like your natural teeth
  • Don’t interfere with speaking, eating, or smiling the way
    dentures do
  • Allow you to bite and chew naturally, with very few restrictions on what
    you can eat
  • Don’t need to be removed when brushing your teeth
  • Can’t get cavities like your natural teeth can
  • Can last a lifetime with proper care and hygiene

With dental implants, your adjacent teeth don’t need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth or teeth in place, which is often necessary with some dental bridges.

Dr. Batorfalvy offers many dental implant options and will help identify the right treatment plan for you. If you’re missing a tooth or multiple teeth and dental implants sound like they might be right for you, call Dr. Batorfalvy for an initial consultation or book an appointment online.
