Dental Implants

Dental Implants | Dr. Bassir Are you looking for a permanent solution to missing teeth? If so, we want to share some good news with you: We offer dental implants. The time has come to say goodbye to poorly fitting dentures and high-maintenance bridges — and the many appointments that both of these options can take to complete and maintain.

Dental Implants | San Clemente Dentist | Dr. BassirA missing tooth doesn't just leave a hole in your smile -- it may also affect how you speak and chew. And if a missing tooth isn't replaced, the teeth around it begin to move. Shifting teeth create new crevices for dental plaque to hide in, which can lead to tooth decay and the need for a tooth filling or gum disease treatment down the road.

Dental implants are an extraordinary blend of science and art. Made of titanium, dental implants are securely anchored into the jaw and serve as roots for dental crowns. In many cases, dental implants – and mini dental implants, the smaller version -- are considered the best option for replacing missing teeth. They are also used to replace dental bridges or partial dentures, or to provide support for dentures. Dental implants offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options. They look, feel and function just like real teeth! With dental implants, surrounding teeth are left untouched. Finally, dental implants are exceptionally reliable. Year after year, dental implants have had high success rates.
