DENTAL IMPLANTS - ALISO VIEJO, CA & Mission Viejo, CA
The majority of adults past middle age have lost at least one tooth to gum disease, an injury, or an accident. If you need to have a tooth extracted, consider a dental implant to preserve your oral health.
Dental implants are a favored tooth replacement procedure for patients with one or more missing teeth. Partial dentures and fixed bridges carry complications such as an increased risk of tooth decay and a contribution to bone loss. Implant dentistry has evolved to a point where dental implants are a more viable solution for replacing missing teeth and have a high success rate.
Tooth Loss and Implant Dentistry Procedures
If you have a tooth extracted and do not have it replaced with a dental implant, you may experience some jaw bone loss because the jaw bone will no longer be stimulated by the root of the natural tooth. Implant dentistry procedures allow us to replace the missing tooth to restore your smile. Implants are designed to work just like your real teeth and can stimulate the jaw bone. Many adults end up losing at least one tooth by the time they reach middle age. Dentures and bridges are traditional tooth replacement options, but implant dentistry boasts a high success rate with minimal complications. Dentures can make clicking noises and bridges require wearing down nearby teeth. Dental implants are placed directly into the jaw bone and can therefore help to prevent jaw bone loss. They are also resistant to tooth decay and will not move around because they are fully integrated into the bone. Dental implants most closely mimic the structure of a natural tooth.
