Dental implants are an ideal way to restore missing teeth, but the procedure can be lengthy. Our dentist can provide ULTRATOOTH™ dental implants in Moorpark, California, to restore your smile more immediately! Please call Moorpark Smiles Dental at 805-553-1980 if you would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Paul Takemoto to learn more about the ULTRATOOTH implant procedure.
Traditional dental implants appear and function very similarly to natural teeth, making them a wonderful tooth replacement option, and over the years, they have only improved in quality and efficiency. However, the healing period required for traditional implants can leave a patient with an incomplete and less functional smile for several months. ULTRATOOTH takes dental implants to the next level, reducing the procedure time using FDA-cleared technology.
A traditional implant consists of a screw-type post that must fuse with the jawbone before it is stable enough for normal eating and speaking; successful fusion usually takes four to six months. The innovative expansion feature of ULTRATOOTH allows an implant to reach maximum stability more quickly, often immediately. The healing period still occurs as with traditional implants, but an ULTRATOOTH implant is already completely fixed and stable during this healing period.
Benefits of ULTRATOOTH implants include:
- Instant results
- Improved confidence in smile appearance
- Improved comfort in comparison to removable dentures
- Restored function and appearance of teeth
ULTRATOOTH implants are just as stable and durable as traditional implants are. In fact, the key difference between the two is simply the amount of time needed to complete the implant procedure. A traditional implant requires multiple office visits and an osseointegration process before the restoration is complete. An ULTRATOOTH implant can be placed in just one visit and can be ready for normal oral function with the placement of a temporary dental crown! When the final restorative crown is ready, the patient can return for a brief visit to finish their restoration.
