At the offices of Dr. Alvin Jacobs, DDS, we’re dedicated to providing the best in cosmetic, aesthetic, restorative and dentistry. Our tooth implant in Leonia is made from the highest quality titanium and can be done in one quick, short and painless procedure that many patients find convenient. Our advanced restorative services include procedures to install crowns, veneers, onlays and bridges.
When teeth have been extracted or are missing, dental implants make it easy to restore your smile. Dental implants are made from titanium, a hard and durable metal that is used as a root in order to replace the natural root of a tooth, and is also stronger than a natural tooth. A tooth implant in Leonia is first surgically implanted into the bone of the jaw in a short procedure. After it is implanted a healing period is given so the implant site can heal over the course of a few months. After the healing period is over, an artificial tooth is placed over the implant. The tooth colored crown is cemented over the implant so that it blends in perfectly with other teeth. The implant itself provides a stable and very durable anchor to place a tooth over. Most implants never again need fillings or root canals afterwards.
Before your tooth implant in Leonia, we’ll have you to come in for an oral exam to ensure that you’re a candidate for implants. Our initial oral exam includes a screening for oral cancer, periodontal evaluation, a bite occlusion analysis and an analysis of the teeth’s supporting structures. We educate all of our patients as well on the necessities of a good oral hygiene program and encourage daily brushing and flossing habits as well to ward off tooth decay and to keep teeth clean and healthy.
