If you have lost one or more teeth, our dentist may recommend dental implants in Vacaville, California, to replace your teeth and restore your smile to its full potential. A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone, replacing the missing tooth root. Dr. Nicholas D. Esplin works with experienced local specialists during this phase of the treatment to ensure optimal results. After a period of healing, during which time the jawbone begins to bond with the implant, our dentist will attach a custom-made implant restoration (replacement tooth) on top of the post. The restoration replaces the crown of the missing tooth and restores the beauty and function of your smile.
When in place, a dental implant can greatly enhance your smile. Implants do not require adjustments to the neighboring teeth like dental bridges do, and they do not place additional stress on the other teeth. Dental implants are also very secure and natural looking, and many patients find that they feel very similar to natural teeth as well. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.
