DENTAL IMPLANT RESTORATIONS
Arthur Huang, DDS at Valley Grace Dental is an experienced provider of dental implants. Dental implants are the ideal replacements for missing teeth. While most dental restorations focus on replacing the visible part of the tooth (the crown), dental implants replace the entire dental structure, including the roots. As such, dental implants become a firm and secure part of your dental anatomy, indistinguishable from natural teeth in aesthetics and functionality.
Dental implants are titanium metal posts drilled into the jaw bone under the empty socket of the missing tooth. Once the implant is drilled into the jaw bone, your bone tissues gradually heal around the implant, adhering to its surface via a process called osseointegration. Over time, the dental implant becomes a firmly rooted part of your dental anatomy.
Once your jaw bone has healed around the implant, the dentist provides a dental restoration to attach over the implant, such as a dental crown, bridge, or implant-supported denture. The dental restoration replaces the visible part of the tooth, and it’s specifically designed to resemble your natural teeth. As such, dental implants look and function just like actual teeth.
The exceptional dental team at Valley Grace Dental provides a wide range of dental implant restorations in Bakersfield, including dental crowns, dental bridges, and implant-supported dentures. Once you’ve undergone the implant procedure, our dental professionals discuss your dental restoration options to find the ideal solution for your unique needs.
