Dental Implant Restoration
Dental implants are one of the most important advances in technology we’ve seen in a long time. There are several good reasons for the popularity of dental implants; they resolve the aesthetic problem of a missing tooth, are completely functional, and act and look just like a natural tooth.
The secret to the success of dental implants is the small titanium post that is surgically placed in your jaw by one of the top specialists in the Bakersfield area. The titanium used for implants is the same medical grade material that has been used successfully for years as replacement joints.
The property of titanium that makes it perfect for dental implants is that it’s biocompatible. The body accepts this man-made material, which allows the titanium post to fully integrate with the jawbone and tissue.
When the implant has fully integrated, Dr. Breaux completes the process by creating a dental crown that’s securely attached to the implant. The result is a strong and durable replacement that acts and looks like a natural tooth.
Dental implants are pretty remarkable, but they may not be the best solution for your needs. Please contact our office, and a helpful member of our team will be happy to arrange a consultation so that we can answer your questions and make recommendations that fit your specific needs.
