At Hurst Dental Care our expert dentists are Dr. Steven T. Hurst and Dr. Bridget M. Hurst. Our dentists are passionate about treating patients in an exemplary and caring manner. They are committed to helping their patients achieve optimal dental health and uphold a high standard of excellence in personalized dental care. When patients need dental implants to replace missing teeth our doctors are happy to be able to provide this service. Dental implants are made up of two parts: the lower titanium root portion and the upper porcelain crown portion. In order to get dental implants you must first be cleared as being a good candidate for dental implants. This means that your jawbone needs to be healthy enough to hold the implants and you cannot have any type of disease that will interfere with your jawbone’s ability to fully heal. Once you are deemed a good candidate our cosmetic dentist in San Diego will begin the process by surgically implanting the titanium root into your jawbone. There will then be a waiting period of several weeks to several months while the jawbone heals and the implant fuses to the jawbone.
When our cosmetic dentist in San Diego determines that healing has completed, the porcelain crown portion of the dental implant will be permanently attached to the titanium root. At this point your implant is complete and you will be able to enjoy all of its benefits. The implant will allow you to comfortably eat anything you want; it will never slip or cause any type of embarrassment. The dental implant will also never interfere with your clear speech. And, it will look great – just like a permanent tooth. Dental implants are so popular because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. When well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and periodic teeth cleanings, the dental implant is likely to last you a lifetime.
