Understanding the dental implant procedure as replacement teeth for Hanford, CA area residents

Posted By

Drs. Nikunj Raiyani and Sukhmani Marwaha describe Replacement Teeth
In Hanford, CA, patients in and around the community are welcome to ask the team of Hanford Family Dental Center about general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry procedures used to enhance the smile. Our dentists, Drs. Nikunj Raiyani and Sukhmani Marwaha, are here to provide many options to patients who have lost their natural teeth, including:
  • Dental bridges
  • Dentures
  • Dental implants
While these options are available at our practice, we want our patients to know that replacement teeth options are not all “one in the same.” Each option has pros and cons, and patients must educate themselves on each treatment solution to decide which is best for their specific needs. A dental implant procedure is often requested by patients seeking permanent replacement.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts used as foundations for replacements. During oral surgery, they are placed strategically into the bone of the jaw. This ensures that the process of osseointegration is stimulated, during which the bone fuses to the implant to provide optimum stability and strength. Most patients choose to move forward with dental implants because they are the best investment in the smile, providing permanent replacement of natural teeth. Implants can be covered with:
  • Dentures
  • Bridges
  • Crowns
Many patients consider dental implants to be the “gold standard” in tooth replacement, because they are permanent, long-lasting, and durable. While the restorations used on the dental implants may need to be replaced on a regular basis, the implant itself maintains its placement with proper care of the smile.
