Are you missing one or more permanent teeth? Do you wish to have an attractive, fully functional smile once again? Ask Dr. Sonney L Chong how a dental implant in Sacramento, California, can help you.

What are dental implants?
A dental implant is a restoration that replaces both the crown and root of the tooth. This appliance is made up of a titanium implant post, which replaces the root of the tooth, and a dental restoration, which replaces the tooth.

What are the advantages of dental implants?
Dental implants have many advantages. The titanium implant screw is designed to fuse with the jawbone, so dental implants become a permanent part of your smile. Dental implant placement doesn’t require the altering of healthy teeth, as some dental restorations do. Because of this, your long-term oral health is improved.

Can anyone get dental implants?
To have dental implants placed, you should have healthy gums and enough jawbone structure to support the implant. In addition, you must be committed to proper oral hygiene and regular dental checkups. There are other things to consider. Talk to our dentist to see if dental implants are right for you.

How do I care for my dental implants?
Care for your dental implants the way you care for your natural teeth. Brush twice a day and floss once a day. Also, it is important that you visit our office at least every six months for a cleaning and exam.
