What are the benefits of dental implants in a Brentwood, CA area clinic?

Posted By

When patients in the Brentwood, CA area have lost a tooth, they may experience a significant change in the function and appearance of their smile, and even their overall quality of life. Eating food, speaking to others, and smiling are all aspects of one’s life that can change with tooth loss. Dr. Jamil Alkhoury and the team at Brentwood Dental Center provide solutions that can be used to replace missing teeth, including dental implants. Our clinic will help patients understand the benefits of implants, as well as determine candidacy for placement.

What is a dental implant?

When patients are told about dental implants, many of them are unaware of what they are and how they work. These fixtures are made of titanium and are placed into the jawbone. They are stabilized over time with the process of bone growth that can occur after placement called osseointegration. Implants are extremely strong and are held firmly in place with the jawbone, ensuring proper function and stability for restorations placed over the top.

How does a dental implant work?

Dr. Jamil Alkhoury and the team at Brentwood Dental Center provide solutions that can be used to replace missing teeth, A dental implant works by providing the proper foundation for a tooth replacement. Dental implants are placed during oral surgery by Dr. Jamil Alkhoury of Brentwood Family Dental. This procedure is done in our office and allows the dentist to place the implant directly into the jawbone. The gum tissue is sutured so it can heal around the implant, and a temporary restoration is placed on the implant while osseointegration occurs. This can take several weeks. Once the implant is properly stabilized, then patients can have their final restorations put in place.

Who is a proper candidate for a dental implant?

Most patients who have enough bone for the implant to successfully take hold are considered appropriate candidates for dental implants. Patients should also have a healthy smile free from periodontal disease, as this condition can result in bone loss and leave the implant loose and at risk for falling out. Candidates who want to speak and eat without difficulty and enjoy a long-term, low-maintenance solution can ask about dental implants to replace one or more teeth.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants are:

  • Long-lasting
  • A wise investment
  • Effective
  • Strong and durable
  • Versatile
  • Natural-looking

Why might patients choose dental implants over other prosthetics?

Dr. Jamil Alkhoury of Brentwood Family Dental. There are several ways in which a patient may replace their missing teeth within the smile. They may include dentures or dental bridges over dental implants. Dr. Jamil Alkhoury and the team at Brentwood Family Dental will provide an initial consultation appointment and evaluation, during which patients can learn if they are viable candidates for treatment. Patients may choose implants because they are durable and long-lasting, sometimes lasting a lifetime with proper care. Many other restorations require routine replacement or repair. This can add to the lifelong cost of a dental restoration. Bridges and dentures also require specific care and attention that can be time-consuming. Dental implants are standalone restorations that are extremely beneficial for patients in our practice and can be an effective solution for achieving a smile that functions better and looks great! Many patients who are unsure of full dentures may find the advantages of using dental implants to stabilize these restorations and make them stay in the smile effectively. This is part of the versatility of dental implants. They can be utilized by a dentist in many different ways to meet the needs of a patient. We recommend patients ask about this and other dental restorations to make a knowledgeable choice in regard to what is best for their smile.
