Oceanside Dental Implants - Thomas F. Ford DDS, Inc.
Filling a gap in your smile not only restore its beauty but protects the integrity of your bite. At his Oceanside, CA dental office, Dr. Thomas Ford
aims to improve patients’ smiles with high-quality cosmetic tooth restorations. Working alongside specialists, Dr. Ford creates natural-looking dental implant restorations that ensure your smile looks completely natural and aesthetically appealing.
What Are Dental Implant Restorations?
Dental implants replace your whole tooth, from the root to the visible crown. These restorations consist of three parts: a titanium post implanted into the jaw, an abutment placed atop the post, and the crown restoration, made using dental ceramics. At his Oceanside dental practice, Dr. Ford works with trusted dental specialists to have your initial implant post placed, assuring the long term stability of your cosmetic restoration. Once the post has fully healed, Dr. Ford will place your restoration, completing the aesthetic of your smile with a crown, a dental bridge, or a full or partial denture.
Single tooth replacement – Once the implant has integrated into the bone, Dr. Ford will fit a crown on top of the abutment to create a seamless, natural-looking smile. These singular restorations are made using high-quality dental restorations, mimicking the semi-translucence and strength of natural teeth, making them ideal for both front teeth and molars.
Multiple tooth replacement – When missing teeth grouped together, dental implants are placed in the bone to support a bridge or a full or partial denture. When missing teeth are located in various areas of the mouth, they are treated as single tooth replacements and require an implant for each location.
The Benefits of a Dental Implant
Dental implants are the ideal solution for restoring function and beauty to your smile. There are a number of benefits that accompany dental implants, including:
- Preserves the height of the bone.
- Restores chewing ability and eases digestion problems associated poor oral function.
- Eliminates speech problems associated with loose dentures.
- Prevents early facial aging symptoms created by missing teeth.
- Protects the integrity of surrounding teeth.
