One cosmetic dentistry procedure that is oftentimes done on patients in Dr. Shah’s office is dental implants. Dental implants are titanium rods that are surgically inserted into the bone of the jaw in order to act as a false tooth. They are also used to help keep dentures in place and give them a solid foundation. Alternatives to dental implants are bridges and partial dentures, but neither are nearly as long-lasting or durable as dental implants.
There are many benefits to dental implants. Dental implants can help improve the function of your mouth, allowing you to chew more efficiently than when you are missing essential teeth from your mouth. Dental implants have an extremely high success rate as they are well-accepted by the body. They are extremely solid and stable, making them the gold standard when it comes to replacing missing teeth.
Dental implants are often topped with a custom-made crown in order to appear as a natural tooth in the mouth, and many people will never know that the tooth is a false replacement! Dental implants are also known to last for the lifetime of a patient as long as they are well cared for and properly maintained. Additionally, dental implants are perfect for those who utilize dentures, as they can be used to help snap dentures into place and give them the stability they need to function properly.
With so many benefits to dental implants, it would be beneficial for most everyone to consider them as an option when it comes to determining how to replace missing teeth or how to add stability to dentures. Dr. Shah of Absolute Dental in Norco can discuss with you the benefits of dental implants, as well as alternatives that may suitably work in your own personal dental situation.
