Dental Implants Q&A

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants can be one of the best ways to replace missing, natural teeth. They can replace teeth lost due to decay, injury, or disease. Dr. Cabanzon is well-known for his skill and success in placing implants. 

The implant consists of a titanium post that Dr. Cabanzon surgically implants into your upper or lower jawbone. The post fuses to your jawbone to provide a strong and stable tooth that continues to stimulate your jawbone and prevent degradation of your mouth structure. 

Dr. Cabanzon places a dental crown on this post to look and function just like your natural teeth. 

Why should I get dental implants?

Dental implants improve the look and health of your smile, which can boost your confidence, improve your appearance, and help you maintain optimal oral health. 

A dental implant can: 

  • Fill in the holes left by missing teeth
  • Keep the rest of your teeth in alignment
  • Improve your ability to eat and speak properly
  • Evenly distribute the force in your bite
  • Provide support for dental bridges or stabilize dentures

Dental implants are also superior to tooth replacements like dentures or bridges because they help prevent deterioration of your jawbone. When your jawbone starts to deteriorate, the structure of your face changes, and your oral health suffers. 

What are the types of dental implants?

At THE DENTAL BOUTIQUE, dental implants replace a single missing tooth or several missing teeth. Dr. Cabanzon also offers All-on-Four® technology. This implant solution is ideal for those who are missing an entire row of teeth. The procedure involves placing four implants to support an entire arch of replacement teeth.

What does getting dental implants involve?

The process of getting dental implants can take several months. The first step involves your consultation, during which Dr. Cabanzon makes sure you are a good candidate. It’s important for you to have enough quality bone and good gum health to support the implant.

If it’s decided that an implant is for you, Dr. Cabanzon places the post at your first appointment. He makes a small incision in your gum and jawbone and applies the implant. Over the next several months, this implant fuses to your bone and becomes stable and sturdy.

Once the implant fuses, you return to the office to have a small post attached to the implant. This abutment sticks just above the gum line and serves as the base of your dental crown. 

After the full healing of your gums and abutment, Dr. Cabanzon creates a customized crown (or row of teeth) to restore the look and feel of your tooth.
