What Are Dental Implants?
Modern dental implants are titanium posts, about the width of a toothpick, which are implanted in a patient's jawbone to provide a stable anchor point for artificial replacement teeth. Because titanium is a biocompatible material, the implants integrate well with natural bone, and there is no chance of the body rejecting the implants. As an additional benefit, implants help prevent future bone loss.
At Dental Implant Center, serving Yuma, Arizona, and Indio, California, Dr. Valenzuela consistently achieves outstanding results performing the dental implant procedure. When the process is complete, your replacement teeth will look and feel like your natural teeth, and your ability to eat and speak normally will be restored. The dental implant process is often performed in conjunction with other cosmetic dentistry procedures. When patients require extensive dental work to restore natural, healthy function and appearance to their smile, Dr. Valenzuela creates a treatment plan tailored to each patient's unique needs to help create the smile of his or her dreams.
The History of Dental Implants
While the earliest examples of dental implants date back over 1300 years to the Mayan civilization, the history of modern dental implants began in the mid-1950s when researchers discovered that titanium implants readily integrated with human bone, creating a firm support for anchoring replacement teeth. Since 1978, when dental implants were commercially introduced, thousands of implants have been successfully placed. The treatment has proven to stand the test of time, and it has become one of the most widely performed reconstructive dental procedures performed today, boasting one of the highest success rates of any medical or dental procedure.
