Implant Placement in Salinas, CA
A dental implant is an ideal tooth restoration for people who are missing one or more teeth for reasons like injury or periodontal disease. After a metal post is placed by Dr. Chao or Dr. Bui, the restoration is completed with a replacement crown.
While implants are typically more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, they provide superior benefits. They are a more favorable approach than bridgework, because they do not depend on neighboring teeth for support. Implants are stronger than natural teeth and generally last 10-20 years.
Implants require healthy gums and adequate bone. A patient must also be committed to excellent oral hygiene and regular dental visits to Salinas Valley Dental Care, as these are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.
