Dental implants use the latest innovations to permanently replace missing teeth while preserving the natural look and feel of the smile. At California Dental Care & Orthodontics, we take great pride in our ability to restore our patient’s smile, confidence and quality of life.
The implants are small titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone where the missing tooth is. An artificial tooth, that is custom made to match the surrounding natural teeth, is than secured to the post. Dental implants look, feel, and act much like the natural teeth, allowing patients a greater freedom than traditional dentures.
Greater freedom is only one of the many benefits to dental implants. When the teeth are missing, the face can appear sunken and aged, but implants maintain the natural shape of your face and smile. Implants are designed to have the same shape and space of the missing tooth while keeping a natural appearance. With proper follow ups and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Dentures are well-known for slipping and hindering the types of foods that can be eaten, as well as interrupting speech. Since implants are secured into the bone, they are more stable, stronger and allow you to lead your life, your way.
Another benefit of dental implants is their ability to actually stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss, something that traditional dentures and other dental restoration options simply cannot offer. When a tooth is missing, the jawbone will actually begin to deteriorate, leading to additional health issues.
