Dr. Gary Braunstein, dentist in Encintas, CA, is helping adult patients who have experienced tooth loss as a result of injury, decay, or other health problems finally get the permanent smiles they’ve been dreaming of with dental implants. This latest technology in the dental industry that looks, feels, and functions just like natural teeth is helping patients get a renewed sense of confidence along with improved lifestyle and oral health.
Other restorative alternatives for missing teeth like bridges, dentures, or partial dentures help to restore the aesthetics and partial function of the missing tooth or teeth, however, they still leave patients with much to be desired in terms of functionality. These options can still become loose or broken, can restrict the types of foods that patients can eat, and in the case of full mouth dentures, can still irritate gums and require gooey adhesives. Dental implants, however, offer patients a solution that in many instances is even better than their natural teeth.
Dental implants are an effective solution for patients who have just one single missing tooth, a series of missing teeth, or have entire top and bottom arches of missing teeth. To place implants, Dr. Braunstein’s patients undergo a surgical procedure under local anesthesia where small metal anchors, or screws, are inserted into the jawbone in the void of the missing tooth or teeth. Over the next 4-6 months, these implants naturally fuse with the surrounding bone and tissues, after which Dr. Braunstein attaches the artificial porcelain crown that is designed to look like the tooth that once took its place. As a completed unit, the dental implant and crown mimics the structure of the natural tooth root and crown. It restores full aesthetics and functions, and also helps keep the surrounding jaw bone and gum tissues viable and healthy.
Patients with dental implants enjoy the freedom of eating whatever food they desire with no restrictions. Dental implants can be brushed and flossed just like natural teeth as well. They are designed to last the lifetime of the patient and are clinically proven to have a success rate of more than 90 percent.
In addition to offering traditional and mini dental implants at his Encintas, CA practice, Dr. Braunstein also offers a variety of other cosmetic services such as veneers, metal-free crowns, tooth colored fillings, teeth whitening, and more.
