Dental Implants: Restore Your Natural Smile

dental implants spring valley nvMissing teeth can have a marked effect on how you feel about your appearance. You might be hesitant to smile, which can reduce your ability to enjoy activities or express your emotions to others. Even one missing tooth can be successfully treated with dental implants.

Why Dental Implants?

Today’s options for replacing missing teeth are better and more varied than ever before. You can still choose traditional partial or full dentures, but today’s dentures are more comfortable and more natural-looking than they have been in the past. You can also choose dental implants, which are the most effective, most natural-feeling and natural-appearing tooth replacements available.

Dental implants replace not only the visible portion of your tooth, but also replace the tooth root. They are placed directly in your jawbone, and when you bite and chew, the implant helps stimulate the bone to grow. This avoids atrophy of the jawbone, which is very common among long-term denture wearers. It also means that your new teeth will be stationary and will not shift in your mouth. They will also feel just like your natural teeth.[pullquote]Dental implants replace not only the visible portion of your tooth, but also replace the tooth root.[/pullquote]

Choosing Dental Implants

To choose the best approach for tooth replacement for you, you’ll want to consult with our oral surgeon. One of the major considerations when deciding on implants is your overall health and how likely the procedure is to be successful. Some factors that will be considered include:

  • Are you in overall good health?
  • Do you have gum disease?
  • Are you a smoker?
  • Are you being treated for osteoporosis?
  • Do you have diabetes or an autoimmune disorder?

These factors are considered to determine the likely success of an implant procedure. If you have any problems that can be treated before the implant surgery, such as gum disease or problems with the strength of your jawbone, these treatments should be completed before an implant procedure is performed. If our oral surgeon feels you are a good candidate, you can look forward to new teeth that will last you for many years.
