FAQs


Carlsbad implant dentist Dr. Dankworth can answer your frequently asked questions about implant dentistry.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is used by an implant dentist to replace a missing tooth. It is a type of anchor that is usually made of titanium – a strong, durable material that is harmless to your system. The anchor is inserted by a implant dentist into the jaw to take the place of the original tooth’s root. When the bone has attached to the anchor, an implant dentist in San Marcos CA and Encinitas will place the replacement tooth on top. Through implant dentistry, the teeth implant then looks and feels just like a natural tooth.

Will the new teeth appear natural?

With the incredible technology used in implant dentistry in San Marcos CA and Encinitas, dental implants placed by your implant dentist will seem so natural, you may forget they are teeth implants! A teeth implant from an implant dentist looks, feels, chews, and helps you speak just like a regular tooth.

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Anyone who has overall good oral health will likely be a good candidate in San Marcos CA and Encinitas to work with an implant dentist for teeth implant procedures. The two main factors to consider for this teeth implant procedure in Encinitas and San Marcos are the health of the patient and the bone that is present in the jaw.
