If you are among the millions of people in the United States living with partial or complete tooth loss, dental implants can dramatically improve your oral and overall health, as well as your quality of life. At the office of Dr. Melinda Marino, we provide dental implants Mira Mesa to help patients with missing teeth reestablish beautiful, complete smiles. While traditional bridges and dentures offer cosmetically pleasing and functional solutions for the replacement of missing teeth, dental implants come closest to recreating the look, feel and function of natural teeth.
Tooth loss can occur for myriad reasons, including periodontal disease, traumatic injury and tooth decay. If you have lost your teeth for any reason, you may be a candidate for treatment with dental implants Mira Mesa. A dental implant is a small surgical fixture made of biocompatible materials, which integrates with your jawbone. Placing an implant after a tooth is lost or extracted prevents bone loss surrounding the edentulous area; the implant acts like an artificial tooth root, providing the stimulation needed to preserve bone mass and maintain the natural contours of your face. An individual implant can support a single dental crown, just as your natural tooth root supports your tooth and multiple implants can support fixed bridges as well as customized, removable overdentures. In some cases, implants can be placed to anchor a full arch dental bridge, offering a permanent and stable alternative to dentures. Our team of professionals will discuss with you your treatment options and help you make the most informed decisions regarding your care.
At the office of Dr. Melinda Marino, we help you eat, smile and speak with renewed confidence and ease, thanks to dental implants Mira Mesa. With compassionate, personalized care at every visit, we make it easy and stress-free to receive the quality prosthodontic treatment you deserve.
