Dental Implants for Corona

Why Are Dental Implants Needed?

Back in the day, if someone lost a tooth, they sadly had to live without it or use horrendous wooden teeth to do the job. Thankfully, our modern world has developed state of the art proceedures that fix the problem of lost or damaged teeth with strong, natural looking replacement teeth.These are highly dependable in everyday life when they are anchored to the jawbone with a dental implant. Dr. Nicolas at Canyon Hills Dental provides dental implants for Corona inhabitants.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants replace a tooth’s roots. They provide a strong foundation for both options of replacement teeth: permanent and removable.
What is the proceedure?

The first step in the dental implant process, is to create a plan- how to treat your personal needs and the order in which to proceed. The team of professionals at Canyon Hills Dental undertakes this job, making sure the plan is coordinated in an organized manner.

Next, a titanium metal post is implanted in place of the original tooth’s root. The implanted metal post becomes securly anchored in the same way a natural tooth root is. As the jawbone heals, it grows around the implant. 6 to 12 weeks is generally how long it takes for the jawbone to heal.

Once this process is through, the new tooth will need something to connect to the implant with. This is what a small connector post called an abutment is used for. It is a small connector post which connects the new .

Finally the dentist makes a replacement tooth, called a crown, and then attaches this to the abutment. A crown is matched to the color of the rest of your teeth and is made to look very natural and feel comfortable.

The team at Canyon Hills Dental is highly trained in dental implants. Dr. Nicolas ensures that her dental implants for Corona, Riverside, Orange, Anaheim, Yorba Linda and patients in other surrounding counties are done properly.
