Dental Implants for missing teeth are just what the dentist ordered and thanks to modern dentistry, even people who have been previously told they weren’t good candidates are now smiling again with brand new teeth.
According to Dr. Jack Ringer single, multiple, and full dental implants in Southern California are available. People who wear dentures and people who lack bone support now have access to the best replacement for a missing tooth or missing teeth.
Dental Implants exercise your jaw because the post or screw that is implanted fuses to the bone. This phenomenon is known as osseointegration and takes three to six months. Once the bone has fused Dr. Ringer and his dental implant team in Anaheim Hills is able to place artificial teeth over the posts or screws.
If you don’t have enough bone to support a screw or post, bone grafting is the usual solution. Dr. Ringer uses bone grafts to build new tissue and for facial contouring.
Dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth. Your implant dentist in Orange County designs the artificial teeth to suit your smile and the rest of your teeth.
If you are having a complete set Dr. Ringer will consider everything, including your personality before designing your new smile and permanent teeth.
While dentures and bridges will last for years if you practice good oral hygiene, dental implants are built to last and will as long as you take good care of them. While the artificial teeth won’t decay or get cavities, you are still susceptible to gum disease. Gum disease is at the top of the list when it comes to dental implant failure.
Dentures want last forever. Dental Cosmetics in Anaheim Hills explains that dentures are usually replaced every seven to ten years or more so if the patient has lost or gained weight or had changes in the face because of missing teeth.
Dental bridges, which could last between 5 and 15 years, or longer if you practice good oral hygiene are an excellent replacement for a single missing tooth, however, just like dentures; they are not as strong.
When it comes to tooth replacement, dental implants are the smart choice. While you may pay more in the beginning, the cost will work itself out, especially when you consider how much a full set of dentures costs and that they will eventually need to be replaced.
