Dental implants are an incredible option and best of all the replacement for missing teeth is now available for nearly everyone.
Dental implants are suitable for people who haven’t had a front tooth for over a decade, but that’s not all. Patients who have worn dentures are also good candidates for Teeth in a Day or implant supported dentures.

Dr. George Sanchez is a restorative dentist who has the education and experience to place dental implants.
Although most people are excellent candidates for the best replacement for missing teeth those who lack bone density and people with chronic gum disease may not be suitable. In addition people who smoke may want to quit as smokers are in the high risk category for implant failure.
Patients who lack bone density may require additional surgery such as a sinus lift or bone graft. People who have gum disease will need to get that under control before placement as well.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are made from Zirconia and are surgically placed in or on your jawbone. These posts restore jawbone function as they fuse to the bone.
These replacements also provide the following benefits:
- Used to replace one or more teeth
- Full denture stabilization with a few implant posts
- Lifetime support function as implants integrate with your jawbone
- Feel and look like natural teeth
- Make you look younger
Dental Implant Placement
Once you have your posts surgically placed, your jawbone will need time to heal. The average time is 6 to 8 weeks. Those who have had other types of surgery along with implant placement, such as bone grafting, will require additional healing time.
Dental implants eliminate the need for messy adhesives and cleaners. Moreover, the best replacement for missing teeth allows you to enjoy the foods you used to.
Taking Care of your Replacements
Just like your natural teeth the replacements need to be brushed and flossed. The last thing you want to deal with is gum disease, especially if that is how you lost your teeth in the first place.
You will also need to see Dr. George on a regular basis to make sure that your implants are healthy and strong.
Your new replacements can last the rest of your life as long as you take good care of them.
