When it comes to the Best Tooth Replacement, there are alternatives.
You would have to be living under a rock if you haven’t heard of or seen an ad about dental implants, but not all dentists are equipped to provide you with the care you need.
Dental implants really are the best tooth replacement system available as they literally stabilize the bone while helping prevent inevitable bone loss that will occur if you lose a tooth. Commercially pure titanium, which is what most dental implants are made of these days, is unique in that it actually fuses to your jawbone. Much like a concrete pillar, dental implants do not move at all and provide you with the same function as your natural tooth roots.
The bone that encases your tooth is called an alveolar bone that supports and surrounds your teeth. This bone is developed as your teeth erupt. When a tooth is removed or lost, the alveolar, which is quite fragile, can melt away, or simply reabsorb especially where the alveolar is the thinnest. This is particularly the case for your upper front teeth where the gums, bone, and lips can look as if the have collapsed or caved in.
Unfortunately, bone resorption always occurs naturally when a tooth is lost unless something is done to prevent it from happening, and that is where dental implants come in.
Thanks to the grafting techniques that accompany dental implants, the melting away can be halted. Although it can be restored, it is easier and more preferable to prevent it from happening in the first place. If your bone is maintained in both position and volume, it will allow for proper dental implant positioning which will stabilize the bone preventing additional resorption.
When you schedule an appointment with Dental Cosmetics in Anaheim Hills, Dr. Jack Ringer and his team will make sure that your new dental implants are correctly positioned so that they function just like your natural teeth. The real key to dental implant success is positioning as it allows for natural aesthetics as well as proper tooth function.
During your appointment with Dr. Ringer, he will make sure that there is enough bone in the right place to allow for a dental implant. Bone density and volume will also be taken into account.
Dental implants have a high success rate even in areas where there is little bone density. Once functional and integrated, dental implants can last for the rest of your life.
