If you or a loved one has lost one or more teeth, call us at (858) 674-5252 to take the first steps towards a better life after tooth loss with dentures, dental crowns and bridges or dental implants in Poway.
What is a Dental Implant?
Millions of Americans have dental implants, yet chances are you wouldn’t notice one up close! Made up of a strong titanium root secured to a beautiful, natural looking dental crown, dental implants look and feel like natural, healthy teeth for a beautiful smile that is highly functional.
A Lost Tooth Is a Health Risk
While tooth loss affects patients in different ways, the overall result is deteriorated oral health that may negatively impact the entire body. After tooth loss, it can be difficult to bite, chew or speak comfortably. In many cases, missing one or more teeth results in a lowered sense of confidence and self-esteem. If you have lost one or more teeth, you may want to consider the benefits of dental implants to improve your oral health and limit the following health risks after tooth loss.
Rapid deterioration of bone density in the jaw
- Increased risks for developing gum disease or further tooth loss
- Change in face shape: face looks saggy, sunken or aged
- Misaligned bite, causing jaw pain, TMJ pain or TMD
- Loss of normal eating and speaking abilities; loss of confidence
Dental implants are the only form of tooth replacement to significantly prevent or reduce rapid bone loss in the jaw, protecting your natural face shape and reducing risks associated with tooth loss, a misaligned bite or TMJ pain. In addition, dental implants restore your smile’s natural looking cosmetic appearance and will function just like a natural tooth, so you can eat, speak and smile with confidence again.
Dental Implants: A Unique Advantage
Dental implants offer significant advantages over their restorative dental counterparts. Unlike a dental bridge or denture, dental implants are the only form of tooth replacement secured permanently into the jaw, just like a natural tooth! Because they look, feel and function much the same as your regular teeth, they won’t slip or slide the way dentures or dental bridges might and can last as long as a lifetime with proper care. Known for their lifelike appearance, strength and durability, dental implants are trusted as the superior standard in modern tooth replacement.
What To Expect With Dental Implants
The dental implant process involves inserting a strong, small titanium implant into the jawbone where a tooth has been lost. This tooth-loving titanium material quickly fuses into the jawbone and creates an incredibly strong support system similar to a healthy tooth root. Next, your dentist attaches a custom made dental crown to the dental implant by way of a connector piece, known as an abutment.
The entire dental implant process may take months to allow for proper healing between stages, but the results require no change in a good dental hygiene routine and can last as long as a lifetime. If you have a specific question about dental implants or your dental care, give us a call at (858) 674-5252 where our staff is happy to help you feel confident in your smile again with a dental implant consultation.
Implant Supported Denture and Bridges
Implant-supported dentures (also known as implant-retained dentures) replace as many as a whole set of missing teeth and attach to dental implants in the jaw to stay fixed into place without shifting or moving. If you have a specific question about dental implants or your dental care, give us a call at (858) 674-5252 where our staff is happy to help you feel confident in your smile again with a dental implant consultation.
Age Doesn’t Matter!
It’s all about the quality of life you want to live. These two wonderful seniors “Re” and “Denny” are in their 80’s and both received Dental Implants to restore their bite and maintain their chewing ability. A fixed dental bridge or removable partial denture uses a system of one or more dental crowns to fill the area of a missing tooth and “bridge” the gap between one or more missing teeth for a fuller, more functional smile. If you have a specific question about dental implants or your dental care, give us a call at (858) 674-5252 where our staff is happy to help you feel confident in your smile again with a dental implant consultation.
