Dental Implant Procedure in San Jose, CA

When a tooth is lost or extracted the bone surrounding the tooth can start to erode, never to grow back. Other surrounding teeth can drift into the open space causing esthetic and functionality problems. With a tooth implant used as a restoration for the missing tooth, the surrounding bone is retained and the implant looks and functions like a natural tooth. This bone retention promotes, not only jaw and oral heath, but overall health as well. Dr. Danielle Wehle is a general dentist in San Jose, CA offering her patients tooth implant procedures.

A tooth implant has three main parts. The first part is a titanium implant that is surgically placed in your jaw where there was once a tooth. The titanium is resistant to decay and is easily integrated into the body. The dental implant will fuse to the surrounding bone in a process called osseointegration. The titanium implant saves the bone and is “rooted” in your jaw like a natural tooth allowing for easy chewing. Next, an abutment is connected on top of the implant above the gum line. Finally, the tooth implant is completed by placing a crown over the abutment. The dental crown will look and function like a natural tooth.

In the past, patients have opted to replace missing teeth with fixed dental bridges or partial dentures. While these methods are successful they do come with complications and usually need to be repaired or replaced every five to seven years. These alternative procedures can end up being more costly in the long-run. Dental implants are a great solution for patients needing tooth replacement earlier in their life. If maintained properly, a tooth implant can last a lifetime!

Dental implants are economical, healthy, and permanent solutions for missing teeth. To learn more about your options for a dental implant procedure in San Jose, CA call Dr. Wehle’s office to schedule your consultation today.
