If you are one of the 178 million Americans with at least one missing tooth, you don’t need to live with the frustration and embarrassment of tooth loss for the rest of your life! By working with a dentist who specializes in tooth replacement in Santa Rosa, you can reclaim a complete, attractive smile that lasts the rest of your life.
While there are many tooth replacement options available, our favorite is dental implants. Dental implants provide unique and exciting benefits for tooth loss patients of all ages.
Missing teeth make it very difficult to perform even basic tasks like chewing, talking, and smiling. This is especially true for people missing multiple teeth. You may forget what it’s like to bite into a thick steak or openly laugh at a joke.
Dental implants restore full functionality to your mouth. An implant is inserted into the jaw, where it fuses with the bone to replace missing tooth roots. A crown, which is customized to look and feel exactly like a real tooth, is attached to each implant (unless you are replacing most or all of your teeth, in that case implant supported dentures may be your best match). This process makes implants more durable and reliable than dentures, bridges, and other common tooth replacement options.
After receiving dental implants, you can chew your favorite foods, smile with confidence, and talk without hesitation.
Dental implants are also our favorite type of tooth replacement because they can last a lifetime. As long as your implant procedure is performed by a premier Santa Rosa dental implant specialist and you practice good oral hygiene, you will be able to enjoy your new set of teeth for many years to come.
Implants are not a temporary solution to tooth loss; they’re permanently inserted into your jawbone to replace your missing teeth and restore your mouth.
Best of all, implants look and feel completely natural. Nobody will be able to tell that the teeth revealed by your smile are not part of your original set. The precise shape, color, and contour of each implant are carefully customized to fit your mouth perfectly. Since each implant fuses with the jawbone and becomes a permanent part of your mouth, this form of tooth replacement will feel as natural as it looks!
