Professional Dental Implant Services
Extreme cases of periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss, damaging your self-esteem and making it difficult to chew. Dental implants are an ideal, long-lasting solution, whether you want to replace a single tooth or your entire smile.
At The Perio Pocket - SD Implants & Aesthetics in San Diego, CA, we can implant artificial teeth to restore your smile’s appearance and functionality. We use a streamlined process with state-of-the-art equipment to create the perfect implants for your mouth. In addition, our high-quality dental implants look just like natural teeth but are a permanent fix.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a solution for missing teeth that replaces them with an artificial tooth on a metal screw. Your gum and jawbone grow around the implants and fuse with them for a structurally secure smile.
There are two types of dental implants we offer in San Diego:
- Endosteal dental implants: These implants use a titanium screw-type root to affix the new teeth to your jawbone. If you have a receded or decayed jawbone, you may need additional periodontal services before becoming eligible for these implants.
- Subperiosteal implants: Subperiosteal implants don’t fasten to the jawbone but stay below the gums. These implants are a more suitable option if your jawbone is not at peak health.
At The Perio Pocket - SD Implants & Aesthetics, we discuss your oral health needs with you to determine the best type of implant for your situation. Depending on which implant is best for you, you may undergo the implantation process over several visits.
Reasons for Getting Dental Implants
Regaining self-confidence isn’t the only benefit you’ll experience after getting dental implants. There are many reasons to get dental implants over other options. At The Perio Pocket - SD Implants & Aesthetics, Dr. Yvette Carrillo understands why many patients opt for implants versus removable options.
Dental implants are ideal if:
- You want a natural-looking smile indistinguishable from real teeth.
- You don’t want a removable dental solution like dentures.
- You’ve sustained an injury to your mouth and teeth, resulting in tooth loss.
- You suffer from periodontal disease or missing teeth.
- Your genetics result in poor tooth health.
All-on-X Dental Implant-Supported Dentures
At The Perio Pocket - SD Implants & Aesthetics, we use the All-on-X technique to place multiple implants with a denture arch. They make it easy to perform the procedure, beginning with temporary dentures. The denture will stay secure while eating, talking, and brushing your teeth.
During the dental implant process, Dr. Carrillo places each implant screw into your jaw and applies the temporary denture. Eventually, you'll get a permanent full-arch solution after your jawbone heals and adapts to the implants. We’ll monitor your bone growth to ensure you always have a perfect smile.
