Missing Teeth? You’re Never Too Old for Dental Implants!

Aging comes with many challenges, among which is dental care. It’s not uncommon for seniors to have lost one or more teeth. Lost teeth can leave unsightly gaps in your smile and make it difficult to eat or speak. One of the best ways to resolve missing teeth issues is with dental implants. Implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss and can restore your quality of life in your golden years. If you live in Fallbrook, California, you can come to the office of James M. Moran, DDS, for quality implant treatment. 

Dental Implants for Seniors in Fallbrook CA area

At James M. Moran, DDS, we do not place the implant in-house. We refer you to a specialist who surgically places the implant into the jawbone. Once the implant has healed and has fused with the jawbone, Dr. Moran will then complete the process with a natural-looking custom restoration.

How Implants Work

Dental implants are composed of two parts: a titanium base (the implant) that acts like your tooth root and a crown that acts as your replacement tooth. The titanium base is surgically embedded into your jaw, where it will take between three to six months to fully integrate into your system. This time of healing is your dental implant recovery time. Once the implant has been integrated into your system, Dr. James Moran will attach a crown on top to replace your missing tooth. Dental implants replace both your tooth root and your tooth, making it a complete restorative treatment.
