Are you missing teeth? Are you unsure as to the best restorative option? Are you ready to work with a dentist in the Brentwood, California area who has experience providing a wide range of tooth restoration solutions? If this sounds like you, it might be time for you to call Brentwood Family Dental to speak to Drs. Jamil Alkhoury and Diana Belli about the benefits of dental implants. Tooth implants allow patients to replace one tooth or all the teeth through an extensive process. Learning about implants and their purpose can help patients better understand the benefits of undergoing the implant procedure.

What are dental implants?

Understanding dental implants is the first step in determining if they are suitable for a patient. Drs. Jamil Alkhoury and Diana Belli of Brentwood Family Dental describe the dental implants as a metal tooth root replacement. The restoration looks like a small screw. During oral surgery, the implant is placed and restored to replace one, several, or all the teeth in the smile.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Our dentists find that the best candidates for dental implants are those with a healthy smile and sufficient bone to support the implant itself. While dental implants do stimulate bone growth when placed, they still require enough bone to take hold into the jaw. To determine if a patient is a good candidate, our team will often start with x-ray images to look at the structure of the bone and decide if it can hold the implant and ensure a successful placement.

The procedure from start to finish can take some time, but it’s worth the wait for those looking for a more permanent solution to their tooth loss. At dental implants, we always start with an initial evaluation and consultation visit with the patient. During this time, imaging is performed to check the health of the smile and the bone of the jaw. Planning of the placement of the implants is done during this time as well. Patients book their oral surgery, during which the dentist places the implant into the bone. The healing process takes several weeks, after which restorations are placed on the abutment of the implant. This may include a crown, bridge, or denture.
