When you have teeth that need replacement, you have several options to choose from. There are fixed and removable dentures and dental bridges, and today’s most popular solution for teeth replacement, dental implants. If you are in need of Newport Beach dental implants, contact our practice of J Foster Weems DDS and see exactly what can be done for you.
Dr. J. Foster Weems has been dedicated to serving the oral health needs of our patients at our Newport Beach office for many years. Over the years, we have seen a growing interest in and requests for dental implants to serve as teeth replacement for our patients. Newport Beach dental implants are popular for many reasons including the fact that they are the closest thing to natural teeth. When a missing tooth is replaced with a dental implant it is as though the person has their actual permanent tooth restored. To begin with, the implant looks perfectly natural, just like your other permanent teeth. The implant is also as strong and functional as a permanent tooth, giving you the ability to be able to eat anything you want. Finally, if well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and by periodic trips to the dental office for cleaning, our Newport Beach dental implants can well last a lifetime.
Our Newport Beach dental implants are created in two steps. First, the titanium root portion must be surgically inserted into your jaw bone. (Our doctor will first need to determine that your jaw bone is healthy enough to hold the implant.) Then your jaw bone must heal, and the implant must fuse to the jaw bone during this time. This usually can take up to several months. Then, once the healing is complete, the top porcelain crown portion is permanently attached to the titanium root. At this point the implant procedure is completed, and you are left with a wonderful new tooth, or teeth, that act and feel just like your permanent teeth. Should you not want to have Newport Beach dental implants to replace missing teeth, there are many other options that Dr. Weems can discuss with you.
