-- Dental implants have been around for ages - as early as ancient times. In those days primitive means were used to improve they look of a person's smile with "tooth replacements," which were actually shells and stones carved to look like teeth.
Today, Rancho Cucamonga dentist Dr. Jay Stockdale, D.D.S. offers the most modern form of dental implantation surgery. It's a procedure that can be done in the comfort of a quiet dentist's office, with sedation of course. The entire procedure can be completed in just a few visits.
To understand the concept of a dental implant, think about how a tree becomes rooted in the ground. Right after planting a tree, it can easily be pulled back out, but over time the ground accepts the tree's roots, reinforces it and strengthens it. That is what happens when Dr. Stockdale "plants" a tooth implant into a patient's bone tissue. The tissue attaches to the appliance, which is commonly made of a biocompatible metal or ceramic material, the same way the ground attaches and becomes intertwined with the roots of a tree.
Once the implant heals into the bone, the dentist can then apply the tooth restoration on top. The restoration is the actual artificial tooth (similar to a classic porcelain crown) that looks and performs like a natural tooth. The result is a beautiful new full smile that will stay intact for many years.
A Better Way from a Rancho Cucamonga Dentist
Patients who previously thought dentures and bridges were the only way to fix issues with missing teeth are relieved to learn that dental implantation is now a solution. Dentures are very impermanent and can lead to many embarrassing situations.
Tooth implantation provides a potentially everlasting solution to an age-old problem, but their longevity depends on the patient. Dr. Stockdale encourages newer, better dental habits to ensure that they last for a long time.
"It's very possible for a dental implant to last for many years or more. I encourage my patients to come in for regular cleanings and to commit to home dental care to ensure a long-lasting result," he explains.
Patients who have insecurities about missing teeth can call on Rancho Cucamonga dentist Dr. Stockdale for assistance. He allows appointment scheduling right from his website at RenaissanceSmile.com.
