If you want to have strong teeth, then you have protect the roots as well. At times, an accident, injury, or infection can damage the tooth and its root. When there is no other option, we recommend a tooth extraction which includes the tooth root. When an extraction is performed, a space is left between the two remaining teeth. Various dental procedures are designed to replace missing teeth, but a dental implant replaces not only the tooth but also the root. Dental implants provide your entire jaw with added strength, prevent the loss of bone mass, and protect your other teeth and roots. If you want to learn more about how dental implants can work for you, please visit our office at Smile Craft Dental so we can restore your missing tooth.
Prevents Jaw Degeneration
Dental implants are one of the best and most effective dental procedures for replacing teeth and preventing jaw degeneration. When a natural tooth is replaced with an orthodontic, the replacement usually sits on top of the area where the missing tooth was. It can help you smile more confidently but the space between the remaining teeth is empty and can result in jaw degeneration. Jaw degeneration occurs when the jaw responds to missing teeth and roots by reducing bone mass. Over time, it can alter your facial structure as your jaw moves to fill the gap. A dental implant takes the place of the root and helps protect your jaw against degeneration while restoring complete functionality to your mouth.
Easy to Maintain
Dental implants are permanent fixtures placed in your jaw. Following your recovery from the implant placement along with the placement of the prosthetic tooth on top of it, your dental implants are easy to maintain. You will not need to take the dental implant out to clean it, but rather, simply clean it as you do your remaining natural teeth, always brushing, flossing, and practicing good oral hygiene, which includes regular visits to our office for dental exams and dental cleanings.
Dental implants replicate your teeth in function and appearance and are easily maintained with ongoing good dental hygiene. This means no special cleaning products or apparatus, only normal brushing, flossing, and regularly scheduled cleanings with us.
Fully Functional Teeth
People choose dental implants over dentures primarily to have a complete set of fully functional teeth. Dental implants are permanent replacements which are customized to perfectly fit your jaw. As such, they deliver a secure, permanent fit which will not be affected by the foods you eat no matter how sticky or hard they are. If you love trying new dishes, exploring new places, and meeting new people, don't let your missing teeth hinder your lifestyle, instead choose dental implants placed by our dental professionals to permanently replace your missing teeth. Dental implants promise lots of benefits for you, including restoring essential function, keeping your jaw healthy, and allowing you to enjoy life fully.
Not only do dental implants make your life easier but they are long-lasting as well. If you feel that dental implants might be right for you, call us at 650-880-1269 or visit our office at Smile Craft Dental today.
