How Do Dental Implants Work?
Tooth loss does more than just have an effect on the appearance of your smile: it also affects your oral health. The roots of a tooth stimulate the bone tissue in your jaw, keeping it healthy and strong.
However, when you lose a tooth, the lack of stimulation causes your jawbone to deteriorate. As this atrophy continues, it can cause the adjacent teeth to shift, which can lead to further tooth loss. Jawbone atrophy also affects your appearance, causing your face to begin to look sunken and aged.
Dental implants are threaded titanium or ceramic posts that are used to attach a restoration directly to the jawbone. Through a process called osseointegration, the implant base fuses with the bone in your jaw.. This process can prevent further bone recession and help you maintain a full facial structure. Working as bionic substitutes for tooth roots, dental implants stimulate the jawbone each time you eat or speak.
Implants are considered by our Los Algodones, Mexico, dental clinic, and dentists worldwide to be the gold standard for replacing a missing tooth.

Dental Implants Vs. Traditional Dentures Which Is Right for You?
Traditional dentures, which have a pink, gum-colored acrylic base that rests on the gums, are initially more affordable than dental implants. Although traditional dentures replace missing teeth, they have several drawbacks:.
- They are prone to slipping and sliding, especially when you are eating or talking. This may force you to limit what foods you eat. In addition, the longer you are missing teeth, the more your jawbone will shrink, which increases the risk of your dentures moving.
- Traditional dentures accelerate bone loss. Every time you bite down or clench your teeth, the pressure wears down the alveolar ridge that the denture rests on.
- Bone loss will require you to regularly get your dentures relined or replaced to adjust to the changing shape of your jaw.
- You will have to go without teeth at times. Traditional dentures need to be removed at night to be cleaned and to allow the soft tissue in your mouth to breathe and prevent gum disease.
Dental implants are the most complete tooth restoration technique available and offer unparalleled benefits of security and stability. Implants also preserve your oral health.
- Because implant-supported dentures are supported by implants that fuse with the jawbone, they offer unmatched stability. You will be able to speak clearly and eat your favorite foods without worrying that your denture will slip and embarrass you.
- Instead of accelerating bone loss like traditional dentures, dental implants actually encourage new bone growth in the jaw, keeping it strong and preventing it from wasting away.
- Implant-supported dentures are the closest thing to having your original teeth back. In fact, you care for them just like natural teeth: by brushing and flossing and keeping regular appointments with your dentist.

Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a Candidate for Implant Dentistry?
Many factors can affect whether you are a good candidate for implant dentistry. When you visit our clinic near Palm Springs, California and Yuma, Arizona, Dr. Jose Valenzuela will thoroughly evaluate your tooth replacement options. It is particularly important that a patient has sufficient bone to properly support the implant. Fortunately, Dr. Valenzuela has several techniques he can use to overcome poor bone density, including All-on-4® implants, mini dental implants, and bone grafting. Patients who suffer from uncontrolled diabetes, certain blood and bone disorders, or bone marrow cancer may not be candidates for implant dentistry.
How Long Does Dental Implant Treatment Take?
Treatment time for dental implants varies widely depending on the particulars of each case. The entire process can range from five months if no preparatory procedures are required to two years for more complex cases. During your initial evaluation, Dr. Valenzuela will be able to give you a more accurate estimate.
Is Dental Implant Treatment Painful?
In most cases, the placement of dental implants causes only minor discomfort; many patients are surprised at how little pain they experience during treatment. We offer advanced conscious sedation options for patients receiving implant dentistry treatment at our clinic near Palm Springs and Yuma, Arizona. Dr. Valenzuela will ensure your tooth replacement treatment will be as comfortable, relaxing, and pain free as possible. After the initial implant placement surgery, most patients are able to return to their usual daily activities within one day and require only mild pain medication.
Are Dental Implants Difficult to Maintain?
Dental implants are exceptionally easy to maintain. Once your replacement teeth are anchored to your new titanium implants, simply care for them as you would properly care for your natural teeth, including regular brushing and flossing along with regular dental visits during which your implants will be examined and professionally cleaned. No extra steps will be required to maintain your new, healthy smile.
