Learn how dental implants can replace one or multiple missing teeth for patients in San Jose, CA.
Dr. Trinh Lee and Dr. Suzanna Lee are renowned as exceptionally talented San Jose dental implants specialists. Over the course of their distinguished careers, they have helped many patients replace one or more missing teeth with durable, natural-looking restorations. The outstanding reputation of Drs. Lee and Lee attract patients from throughout the greater San Jose and Mid-Peninsula areas, including Mountain View and ePalo Alto. In the paragraphs below, the experienced dentists explain the dental implants procedure and the results these restorations help achieve.
What Are They?
Dental implants are an excellent treatment option for missing teeth, as well as an attractive alternative to removable partial or complete dentures. They provide support for the jaw, restorative dental crowns or fixed dentures.
Dental implants are actually titanium posts that are surgically implanted in the jawbone to serve as an anchor for an artificial tooth. We are able to complete the entire procedure in the comfort of our own office, instead of referring patients to another dental office for the first part of the procedure. The restorations used at our office are strong and natural looking to enhance and restore your smile. While they are made to last a lifetime, they may require maintenance due to normal wear over the years.
Am I a Candidate?
As some of the most experienced dental implants specialists, Allure Dental Center cosmetic dentists use these restorations to achieve various aesthetic goals. Some of the more common uses include:
- Replace a single or several missing teeth
- Alleviate joint pain caused by teeth shifting
- Increase comfort while chewing, speaking, and drinking
- Preserve facial structure
- Support/secure a bridge or denture
The process for receiving implants takes place over several office visits, spread out over several months.
During the first appointment, Dr. Suzanna Lee or Dr. Trinh Lee will take a set of X-rays, and create a mold impression to gain accurate knowledge of the bones and gum tissue. After numbing the area, the implant is placed in the bone. In the months after the procedure, it will heal and fuse with the bone. Depending on the type placed, a second surgery may be required to place the "post" that will hold the artificial tooth in place. In many cases, however, the post and anchor are placed at the same time.
Once the area has healed, our cosmetic dentists will take impressions of the mouth to be referenced in the creation of the artificial teeth. This may require several fittings over the course of a few appointments. Finally, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing a restored, natural-looking smile.e.
Our dentists provide patients with post-treatment instructions. Good oral hygiene habits, a healthy diet, and required check-ups will ensure that the dental implants last over the course of your lifetime.
