Struggling with tooth loss? Here at our offices in Newport Beach and Garden Grove, CA, Dr. Timothy, DDS Bui uses dental implants to restore patients' smiles in a fashion that is natural in both appearance and functionality. Read on to learn more!

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a surgical component that consists of three separate parts—the body, abutment, and porcelain crown. The body is a tiny titanium post that resembles a tooth root, and our dentist inserts this piece into the jawbone with a minimally invasive procedure. The abutment is the connecting piece that attaches to the dental crown. Over a few months, your jawbone fuses with the implant to provide a solid foundation for these other two pieces to be connected.

How Dental Implants Rebuild Your Smile

Missing teeth come with a wide range of challenges. For instance, perhaps you're avoiding the foods you love because eating them is an uncomfortable and painful task. Or maybe you're afraid to laugh because you're self-conscious that someone will stare. After assessing your condition, Dr. Bui can help you replace one or multiple teeth. Dental implants offer protection for your smile, and if you are missing all of your teeth, they offer permanent support for removable partial dentures. If you want to upgrade your biting force, as well as your appearance, dental implants offer a boost of confidence, self-esteem, and overall comfort.

Caring For Your Dental Implants

One of the many advantages to dental implants is that you care for them just like you manage your natural teeth. Daily brushing and flossing is substantial for a successful implant, as are routine visits to our offices in Newport Beach and Garden Grove, CA. Dr. Timothy, Bui, DDS, will provide you with direct instructions to follow at home and recommend that you use a soft-bristled toothbrush to remove bacteria without causing damage as well as non-abrasive toothpaste to protect the surface of your restoration. With adequate oral hygiene habits, dental implants can offer long-lasting support from 25 years to a lifetime.
