Molars are used to do a lot of work. Fortunately, if you are missing a molar, your dentist, Dr. Nam Cho, can fully restore a missing molar with a dental implant in Glendale, California.
If the initial loss of the molar also compromised the surrounding bone structure, we might recommend getting a bone graft beforehand.
To place the implant, your dentist will make a narrow channel in the bone and will screw a titanium abutment into the channel. Titanium is known for being biologically safe and it will fuse into your natural bone to create a very firm anchor point for a dental crown.
Once your gums have healed and the titanium implant has fully integrated into the surrounding bone tissues, your dentist can start the process of installing a standard crown. Most molar crowns are crafted from durable gold or base metal alloys.
If you have recently lost a molar in the back of your mouth, you should not delay in contacting Pacific Coast Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at 818-365-5636 to see if you can have it restored by a dental implant in Glendale, California.
