Implant dentistry is becoming increasingly popular as more people recognize the benefits of dental implant solutions compared to more traditional treatments for missing teeth replacement. Dr. Jimmy Wu explains the different implant dentistry options he offers at his practice in La Mesa.
La Mesa, CA - Thanks to the advancements in dental treatments and technology, many individuals can replace their missing or badly damaged teeth using state-of-the-art dental implants. At Sutra Dental Spa, San Diego cosmetic dentist Jimmy Wu, DDS offers several different types of implant dentistry options. Dr. Wu says that dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth, which explains why patients often favor dental implants over other teeth replacement options. Dr. Wu notes that dental implants can provide very secure and stable teeth replacement since the implants are designed to fuse with the jawbone, encouraging bone preservation while essentially serving as an artificial tooth root. He says he often recommends these innovative tooth replacements to help patients smile, speak, and eat confidently again.
Just like a natural tooth, dental implants are intended to be a permanent part of the mouth. Dr. Wu emphasizes that each qualified candidate for dental implants at his practice receives a customized treatment plan tailored to creating results that function and feel as natural as possible while simultaneously producing the most ideal appearance. The results from dental implants can also last many years into the future as long as the patient takes proper care of them and maintains good oral hygiene after treatment. Dr. Wu advises patients to brush and floss twice a day and get professional teeth cleanings twice a year to enjoy the benefits of their dental implants for as long as possible.
Dr. Wu says that patients with traditional dentures usually complain about them rubbing against the gums and causing blisters. Also, they can slip out if certain hard or sticky foods are consumed. For a more secure and comfortable option, he often recommends implant-supported dentures for patients who are missing most or all of their teeth on the upper and/or lower dental arches. Implant-supported dentures involve the secure placement of a custom denture on top of a select number of dental implants, eliminating the need for any messy pastes and adhesives. More specifically, Dr. Wu offers an innovative form of implant-supported dentures called the All-On-4® system. He explains that this technique uses four implants per dental arch to anchor a custom denture, ultimately combining the benefits of dental implants and dentures to provide a more stable fit while reducing the potential for movement along the gums.
Dr. Wu says the benefits of implant dentistry are unmatched, offering a more stable, reliable, and comfortable solution to many patients’ tooth replacement needs. With no extra maintenance necessary, dental implants can provide long-lasting and natural-looking outcomes that retain jawbone density for a healthier smile. Dr. Wu notes that patients who are considering teeth replacement with dental implants should be sure to seek out highly-qualified dentists who are experienced with implant dentistry procedures. With precise treatment planning, the use of advanced materials, and the skills of an experienced dentist, Dr. Wu says patients can often realize their goal of exceptional tooth replacement results that feel virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
