A Strong, Sturdy, Functional And Natural-Looking Replacement

Dental Implants

Dental Implants Gilroy, CA

Dental implants are the most modern and effective way to replace lost teeth. Unfortunately, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry finds that "More than 35 million Americans are missing all their teeth in one or both jaws." This condition occurs mainly due to age, diseases, or accidents. Living without teeth or with fewer teeth than one needs creates a number of challenges.

For starters, lost teeth restrict what food one can eat since one has to be careful about chewing hard foods. In addition, people who have lost teeth tend to be self-conscious and do not smile as much as they could or should.

Finally, lost teeth can influence speech patterns, making it difficult to pronounce or enunciate certain words. With dental implants, all these problems can be a thing of the past.

A Natural feel and appearance

It can be challenging to find tooth replacements that feel and function naturally. The dental implants system works much like the natural system the body designed. There is an anchor, which is the dental implant itself, and then there is the tooth. We will replace the tooth with a dental crown, which is a standard replacement for teeth.

The dental lab will make dental crowns out of durable porcelain that does not harm other teeth. In addition to this, the porcelain dental crowns look and feel exactly like your natural teeth, so nobody will ever even know they are there. The dental crown is attached to an abutment, which is a small portion of the dental implants left above the gum line.

The dental implants themselves are a tiny cone-shaped object, often a screw, which is placed directly into the jawbone for added strength and stability. The flat portion of the dental implants is where the abutment is attached and provides the surface for the tooth.

Similar to the root of a natural tooth, the tiny screw supports the tooth and works with the jawbone to support the new tooth. Even more impressive, patients never have to worry about taking them out or providing specialized care for dental implants.

Dental implants are sturdy and functional

Dental implants are one of the most permanent solutions available when it comes to replacing lost teeth. Upon placement, they remain in the mouth indefinitely. Caring for the crowns on top of the implants is similar to caring for natural teeth. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash are all ways to keep the implant healthy. While the porcelain itself cannot get cavities, infections, or discoloring, the gum still needs preventative dental care through proper oral hygiene.

No one wants to encourage infections or cavities in the teeth around the dental implants. If these teeth yellow, the implant will become far more obvious. Dental implants are changing the way we see tooth loss. Do not hesitate to consider dental implants for tooth replacement.
