Are Dental Implants Worth It?

Are Daly City Dental Implants Worth It?A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth, and they’re available at Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City. Are they worth it? Absolutely!

The actual dental implant is a metal post, usually titanium. The post is surgically placed into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post meshes with the bone to provide a stable foundation. This is vital because the root replacement post helps prevent jaw bone deterioration that usually occurs after a tooth has been lost.

When the implant has integrated securely with the bone (it can take up to six months), a smaller post is attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (crown) is then attached. Same day implants are available for some patients that fit the criteria. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Hovden about your situation.

The dental implants available at Kenneth Hovden DDS are extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of configurations. One dental implant can replace one missing tooth. A series of implants can replace more than one tooth or anchor a dental bridge. Denture wearers should know that tooth implants can also work as a sturdy base for partial or full dentures.

When calculating the cost of dental implants, it’s essential to compare them to other restorative options such as a dental bridge.
