Dental Implant Basics From Dr. Cuevas

FROM COMMON THINGS LIKE TRAUMA, DISEASE, AND SIMPLE WEAR AND TEAR, some adults have experienced permanent tooth loss. No matter the reason for the loss, a lack of confidence and oral discomfort are typical results. Permanent tooth loss is something that Dr. Cuevas and his team are constantly doing their best to prevent, but unfortunately, it sometimes can’t be helped. The good news is, modern technology offers us many beautiful and highly functional solutions.

Though implant dentistry is not a new technology, it has come a long way from its original origins in the 50’s. Initial discoveries were made when scientists discovered that bones can fuse with titanium, making natural bone support possible. Today, Dr. Cuevas uses this discovery to copy the natural root and tooth system that your mouth already has.

Implants are first placed within the gum line and then given 3–6 months healing time to ensure proper and complete fusion. Once the implants have healed, the bridge, custom crown, or dentures can be inserted. Unlike traditional dentures, this solution is much more secure and long lasting, giving you the flawless smile you deserve.

Dental implants begin by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Cuevas so that he many answer your questions and create a custom-tailored plan that best meets your needs.

Here is a simple illustration of how dental implants work:
