What are dental implants?
For a patient who is missing one or more permanent teeth, Dr. Elhameh Allamehzadeh may recommend dental implants in San Diego, California. A dental implant is a restoration that replaces both the missing tooth and its root. A dental implant is made up of a titanium post, which fuses with the jawbone, and a dental restoration, like a dental crown or bridge.

What can dental implants do for you and your smile?
– Improve your appearance and self-esteem
– Improve your speech
– Allow you to eat properly
– Improve your comfort
– Improve your oral health
– Provide a durable and long-lasting replacement for a lost tooth

Can anyone get dental implants?
To have dental implants placed, healthy gums and sufficient jawbone structure are needed to support the implant post. In addition, you must be committed to proper oral hygiene and regular dental checkups. There are other things to consider, like whether or not you are a smoker. Schedule a consultation with our dentist to see if dental implants are right for you.

How do I care for my dental implants?
Care for your dental implants the same way that you care for your natural teeth. Brush them twice a day and floss them once a day, along with your natural teeth. Rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash. Make sure you visit our office at least twice a year for your professional teeth cleaning.
