Questions to Ask When Selecting an Implant Dentist
The Process of Installing Implants
If one or more of your teeth have fallen out, you may qualify for dental implants as a way to permanently replace the missing teeth. In order to find out, schedule an appointment with our Huntington Beach dentist office by calling 714-898-2517. Dr. Henriod or Dr. Bergman will examine your mouth and jawbone to determine if the procedure is right for you. Luckily, due to advancements in technology most people are candidates for Dental Implants… So call today!
Before dental implant placement you will be sent to an imaging center where you will receive a CT Scan, the doctors use this scan to look at the bone where the implant will be placed. Many patients require bone grafting before the implant is placed. When you are ready for your implant placement the staff at Beach City Dental will take an impression of your mouth so that the new teeth can be created in a dental lab. Each tooth will be made to match the size and shape of the surrounding teeth along with having a perfect color match. This way your smile will appear completely natural once done. Patients throughout CA are delighted with the results since no one can tell the difference between which teeth are real and which ones are synthetic.
Teeth restored with implants can’t get cavities! A replacement tooth, or crown, doesn’t decay like a natural tooth, but you still must brush, floss and care for it and your surrounding natural teeth and gums in the same manner as natural teeth. Regular professional cleanings and dental check-ups also are essential.
Huntington Beach Dental Prosthetics
The next step in the procedure is to have a metal post implanted under the gum line. This aspect of the procedure is what sets an implant apart from other forms of cosmetic dentistry and Dr. Henriod and Dr. Bergman are true experts at performing the procedure. The metal post is secured to the jawbone in order to create a durable, synthetic root system that rivals the strength of natural roots with one exception – metal can’t become infected. Over the course of a couple of months, the implant and jawbone will fuse together. This creates a level of durability that cannot be replicated in any other type of procedure.
Afterwards, Dr. Gordon or Dr. Baker will secure the new tooth (crown) to the implant at the surface of the gums. The new tooth is attached so securely, that patients can eat their favorite foods, maintain an active lifestyle, play sports, and more, without fear of their tooth becoming loose or falling out. Patients throughout CA enjoy the benefits that come from never having to worry about their tooth again.

Caring for Dental Prosthetics and Implants
Once implants have been installed, they are extremely easy to care for. We hear from patients throughout Huntington Beach with questions that range from “Do implants come out” and “How do I brush my teeth”. The answer is fairly simple. Since dental prosthetics are installed by creating a synthetic root system, they are durable and secure and will not fall out or become loose. This means you can go play basketball, run in a 10k, and wrestle with your kids – without worrying about your tooth coming out.
In order to care for your implants, we advise patients throughout California to brush and floss their teeth throughout the day like they normally would. Additionally, it is important to schedule dental exams and cleanings at Beach City Dental at least twice a year. The staff at Beach City Dental will help to clean your teeth and ensure that they stay healthy. This step is incredibly important because while dental prosthetics cannot become infected themselves, the teeth around them can. If, in the future, you suffer from a severe case of gum disease or a dental abscess, the infection can spread into your jawbone. This puts your implants in jeopardy because in order to stay secure, the jawbone must be in good health. If it becomes infected, your dental prosthetics and all of your teeth will be in jeopardy.
If you currently have implants and your teeth start to hurt, call (714) 898-2517 to schedule an appointment immediately. This way we can identify any infection and treat it before it can spread into the jawbone. As long as you follow these simple preventative care steps, your implants and natural teeth should remain in good health.
