Dental Implants in San Diego

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are fundamentally replacement tooth roots, which provide a firm base for placing permanent or removable teeth to match the appearance of your natural teeth. It is a titanium post that is positioned surgically into the jawbone before placing an artificial tooth.

Unlike a denture, dental implants don’t come loose. They work by blending with the jawbone, providing stability to your artificial teeth and securely fits bridges, dentures, and dental crowns. They are one of the best cosmetic treatments that preserve your oral health and the natural look of your teeth—allowing you to live your life with confidence and zeal.

Get closer to natural and healthy teeth with Dr. Fakhimi’s dental implants

Periodontal disease, tooth decay, and injury are a few reasons why so many people around the globe suffer a loss of teeth. It’s not common for people to experience their teeth falling because their roots get damaged due to cavity and decay.

If you are facing something similar, then you don’t have anything to worry because Dr. Fakhimi has your back. He is at the helm of Soft Touch Dental, the specialized dental clinic providing general and cosmetic dentistry treatments in La Jolla, California.

What is involved in the procedure to get dental implants?

At Soft Touch Dental, Dr. Fakhimi and his team of dentists are well-poised to evaluate your oral health thoroughly. He will recommend dental 3D imaging tests and X-rays to get a view of your jawbone and the anatomy beneath your gums.

Depending on the health of your gums, he will take impressions of your tooth and design implants that fit the size of the tooth under treatment. He makes a small incision in your gum after administering local anesthesia and places the dental implant in your jawbone.

The dental implant is allowed to bind naturally with your jawbone and become a firm base for crowns and artificial teeth. Dr. Fakhimi may prescribe some over-the-counter painkilling medications to relieve pain. After the implant blends with your jawbone, there will hardly be any signs, providing a completely natural look and feel to your smile.

Preparing for single implants

A prerequisite for single implants is that the jaw must have enough bone to support the implant, and the bone must be strong enough to bear the implant’s weight. If this is not the case, the doctor can perform what is known as bone grafting. Older patients are more likely to require a bone graft, as bones tend to deteriorate with age.

Details of the procedure

Immediate implants in the anterior and posterior teeth have been documented to protect and fortify the structure of the jaw. If necessary, an immediate implant stay plate – custom-made based on your dental impressions – can help keep the shape of the teeth and gums in place while the bones heal.

The proper choice of materials used – for instance, whether to select an implant with a zirconia abutment or not – and the right treatment approach, will ensure a successful procedure. With 20 years of experience under his belt, Dr. Fakhimi is poised to make the most carefully considered decisions for your dental health. He will choose either a screw retained implant, or a cemented restoration for the single missing tooth implant.
