One of the attributes of a healthy, pleasing smile is not having missing teeth. Even one lost tooth can make a difference to your oral health and functionality. Fortunately, you can resolve tooth loss issues permanently with dental implants. With implants, you get replacement teeth that have all the attributes of your natural teeth – durability, functionality, comfort, and a natural-looking appearance. A dental evaluation by your teeth implants dentist, Dr. Wayne Sutton, from Sonoma Smiles, Rohnert Park, California, can determine if you’re a good candidate for implant treatment.
Conventional restorations like removable dentures and bridges can’t compare to implants’ effectiveness and natural appeal. Removable dentures and bridges are often ill-fitting, making them uncomfortable to wear and more prone to slipping or shifting when talking or chewing. As a result, you may need to restrict your diet to softer foods. Traditional dentures and bridges also require special care, which can be time-consuming.
In contrast, implant restorations fit firmly and securely in your mouth, providing the same stability as natural teeth. This is due to the implant being surgically embedded into your jaw to replace your tooth root. This implant provides a firm foundation for your replacement teeth. The implant supports your restoration, giving you strong, stable replacement teeth that look and function like your natural teeth.
Like natural teeth, implants only require daily brushing, flossing, and routine dental cleanings to retain their health and beauty. Implants provide additional perks by:
Whether you want to replace one tooth (single implant treatment), several teeth (implant-supported bridge), an entire arch of teeth, or all of your teeth (implant-supported dentures), implants can meet your restorative dentistry needs. Your customized implant restorations will restore your smile beautifully.
Tooth loss affects more than just your physical appearance. It impacts how you think, act and feel. You may feel embarrassed to smile or inferior around other people, which can cause you to withdraw socially. You may lose confidence or self-esteem, causing you to pull back in your professional career.
Replacing missing teeth with implants can change your life for the better. You’ll look and feel better about yourself, giving you renewed confidence for your future. You’ll enjoy eating again as implants restore full chewing functionality, enabling you to enjoy all your favorite foods. You’ll feel comfortable socializing with family and friends without feeling self-conscious about your appearance. Best of all, you can flash your pearly whites with confidence, knowing your new smile looks every bit as attractive as your natural teeth.
