Dr. Faustino On Dental Implant Basics

FROM COMMON THINGS LIKE WEAR AND TEAR, TO TRAUMA OR DISEASE, many people of all ages have experienced permanent tooth loss. Regardless of the level of loss, oral discomfort and/or a lack of confidence are the common results. Of course, permanent tooth loss is something Dr. Faustino and his team always do their best to prevent. However, it isn’t always possible. The good news is that today there are highly functional and beautiful solutions.

Implant dentistry is not new, although from its original origins in the 50’s it’s come a long way. Initial discoveries came about when scientists discovered how bones can be fused with titanium, making natural bone support possible. Today, Dr. Faustino uses this original discovery to copy the root and tooth systems that your mouth naturally has.

Implants are placed first within the gum line. Then, they are given several months healing time to ensure complete and proper fusion with bone. After the implants have healed, the custom crown, bridge, or dentures can be placed. After this placement (unlike traditional dentures or bridges) the solution is a lot stronger and longer lasting giving you the confident smile you deserve.

As with most dental procedures, dental implants begin with a consultation with Dr. Faustino to help with any questions and allow him the chance to create a custom-tailored plan that best meets your individual needs.

Here’s a simple video illustration of how dental implants work:
