Dr. Valerie Scola speaks the language of cars and the language of dentistry. If she were to compare dental implants treatment to a vehicle, the procedure would be high mileage. In that, when you partner with Scola Family Dentistry in Murrieta, CA to restore your smile with dental implants, you will get many miles out of this form of tooth replacement. As a quality dental procedure, dentures and bridges that are supported by implants are built to last and last.
If you need to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or a mouth-ful of teeth, Dr. Scola may determine that implants are a great way to complete your smile. The implant itself is placed in the jawbone. Shaped like a cylinder and made from a biocompatible (tissue-friendly) material, the implant will join naturally to the surrounding bone. In turn, the implant becomes a part of your jaw. So, it is designed to function like a natural tooth root.
When the crown or part of the tooth seen above the gumline is restored, it is held or rooted firmly in place with the dental implant. Since the restored tooth (or teeth, in the case of bridgework or dentures), is held firmly in place, implant patients enjoy natural chewing and speaking function. This level of stability also supports the strength of the jawbone. Missing teeth hasten the process of bone loss. The bone that supports facial tissues retreats, which can exacerbate signs of aging such as wrinkles and loose skin. Bone resorption also makes problems with chewing, speaking, and other functions worse.
Implants protect your oral health by supporting the health of surrounding tissues, and healthy functionality. Additionally, the design of implant-supported teeth promotes lasting durability and function. Implant-retained teeth mimic natural teeth. They do not require special care. Maintain regular check-ups at our office, and brush and floss your teeth consistently to prevent inflammation from developing around the implant.
Scola Family Dentistry supports exceptional outcomes from dental implants treatment. Dr. Scola has built her practice in a way that is built to last, just like the teeth that she repairs or reconstructs. Along with her team, she values long-standing relationships with patients. The more we get to know patients, the more trust is instilled and the better we can tailor hygiene modifications or products to their needs. By getting to know patients and their families, we can also anticipate their evolving needs. Proactive, personalized care often protects natural teeth.
This personal approach combines with our use of sophisticated technologies, which aid with treatment planning. By using tools such as 3-dimensional imaging, intraoral cameras, and panoramic X-rays, we can accurately see oral structures and accurately detect any anatomical challenges that must be addressed as part of implants treatment. These technologies also aid in the precise placement of implants. Overall, precision planning helps to minimize implant failures, and supports exceptional treatment outcomes, and patient comfort and satisfaction.
