If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you probably are looking into different teeth replacement options. Many patients come to our dental practice, Hurst Dental Care, to get dental implants. Dental implants are comprised of the top porcelain tooth portion, and the lower titanium dental implant root. If you would like to learn more about getting implants in San Diego, you should come and visit us at Hurst Dental Care.
At our dental practice, our two expert dentists are Dr. Stephen T. Hurst and Dr. Bridget M. Hurst. Dr. Stephen Hurst is also an instructor for the California Implant Institute, and trains other dentists on the proper placement of dental implants. So, if you come to our practice to get dental implants, you can feel totally confident that your new implants will be perfectly placed by our dentist. Once the oral surgery is complete and you have received your dental implants in San Diego, there will be a healing period of approximately 2 to 3 months during which time the jawbone will fully heal and the dental implant roots will fuse to the jawbone. Once this is done, our dentist will be able to provide you with a porcelain crown which will perfectly color-match your adjacent teeth. No one will be able to tell that you have dental implants in your mouth, and you will be able to eat anything you want in total comfort. If you would like to have a free implant consultation, you will be able to meet with one of our dentists to determine which the best way is for you to have your missing teeth replaced.
Once you have your dental implants, you will want to take care of them as you would any other tooth, with regular brushing and flossing. You will also want to have a regular dental cleaning every six months or so to make sure that your gums stay in excellent health. If your new dental implants, and gums, are taken care of this way, there is no reason why your dental implants in San Diego should not last you for a lifetime. Dental implants are so popular with our patients because they look, feel, and function just like regular teeth. If you would like to learn more about getting dental implants, contact us today.
