Dental Implants are the most natural looking replacement for missing teeth, but that’s not all. Dental Implants are also just as strong as your natural teeth and can last for the rest of your life.
Missing teeth can cause all kinds of issues and problems with your daily life. Even one missing tooth can cause other problems with your teeth including tooth decay and gum disease.
According to Dr. Jack Ringer, an Accredited Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, every tooth really does count regardless of its positioning.
Missing teeth can make you look older thanks to jaw bone loss. Your cheeks will begin to sag and look hallow.
Because there is no jawbone stimulation, in other words, no interplay between your jawbone and your teeth, the bone will begin to shrink while your gums pull back. Not only does this weaken your neighboring teeth until they collapse, but the teeth that are located in the opposite direction of the missing tooth will actually try to grow to fill the gap.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are manufactured out of titanium to replace the roots of your missing tooth or teeth. Dental Implants are quite small, about a 10 mm long and 3 to 5 mm wide and are surgically placed in your jawbone. Once your jawbone has healed, Dr. Ringer, Orange County’s most well known restorative and cosmetic dentist, will bring back the full function of your teeth. With dental implants, you can enjoy the foods that you couldn’t eat in the past and be able to smile with confidence.
Dr. Ringer has the experience and the expertise to restore your smile with dental implants. You can feel confident knowing that you will be working with a dentist who understands dental implant placement and proportion.
