Dental Implants

The San Diego Dentist

Dental implants are a permanent replacement of lost teeth.

A dental implant is a “root” structure (post) placed within the jaw bone, usually made of titanium, which supports dental restorations. Dental implants will fuse with the bone. These restorations resemble a tooth or group of teeth and replace the lost tooth or teeth.

Dental implants are used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges and dentures. They can also be used as anchors for orthodontic tooth movement. The use of dental implants permits unidirectional tooth movement without reciprocal action.

With dental implants, your once beautiful, full set of teeth can be completely restored.

Bridges, Fixes and Removable

San Diego Restorative Dentistry

Bridges are great for filling the gap when there are missing teeth.

A bridge is a dental restoration used to replace missing teeth, and it is simply joined to adjacent teeth. A bridge is a row of natural looking false teeth that can be permanently secured or removable. Dr. Giglio will help you decide on the best choice for your situation.
