Why Dental Implants Are the #1 Choice for Replacing Missing Teeth

Dental Implants, Replacing Missing Teeth, Avalon Dental

“We won’t be able to save your tooth.”

It’s not easy to hear the news that you’re going to lose one of your permanent teeth to decay or as the result of an accident. You may be wondering, “Now what?”

At Avalon Dental, in San Ramon, California, we understand your concerns and fears, and we’re here to help. If you find yourself needing to replace a tooth, consider dental implants. Custom dental implants are the #1 choice for replacing missing teeth. They can restore your smile and help you face the new year with confidence.

Dental implants look and feel most like natural teeth

A dental implant is the closest you can get to a natural tooth for many reasons. Beyond preserving your natural jawbone, your dental implant perfectly matches the surrounding teeth, so you won’t be able to tell the difference between natural and constructed. Dr. Cliff Broschinksy is an expert cosmetic dentist skilled at creating custom dental implants to replace your missing tooth — or several teeth — so they look and function like they’ve always been there.

Dental implants are attached to your jawbone with a metal post that serves as a root; a custom-made crown fits snugly over the post. Once an implant is affixed into position, it doesn’t move and becomes a permanent part of your mouth.

Implants make it possible for you to smile, laugh, and feel confident every time you open your mouth. No more worries that anyone will see the space where you had a missing tooth.

Dental implants function most like natural teeth

Dental implants allow you to eat all the foods you love. You won’t have to worry about biting into an apple and wondering if your implant will loosen, as you might with some types of removable dentures. If you don’t replace your missing teeth, you may no longer be able to bite into an apple or chew your favorite foods properly.

Dental implants also function to support the natural shape of your face. If you’re missing a few teeth, your facial skin eventually sags into the space where the teeth once existed. Implants solve this problem and help you age gracefully in the years to come.

Talk, chew, sing, and whistle as you always have. With implants, you won’t miss a beat.

Implants are easy to care for

Another reason dental implants are the #1 choice for replacing a missing tooth is their ease of care. You won’t have to do anything special to keep your new implant in pristine condition. Just brush, floss, and rinse as usual and your custom-fit implant will last for decades.

An added bonus of aesthetically pleasing dental implants is that they’re not susceptible to tooth decay, so you can’t get a cavity in one. You’ll never need a root canal in an implant, either. That fact alone could save you money and the inconvenience of future dental procedures. Which brings us to another advantage of dental implants. ...

They’re safe and cost-effective

Custom dental implants have been a part of cosmetic dentistry for more than half a century. Because you only have to replace a tooth once with a custom implant, and it can’t decay, it’s the best investment for your money.

As long as your care for your implants as you do your natural teeth, and you maintain good oral hygiene, you won’t have to worry about replacing implants further down the road, and spending more time and money on dental repairs. Also, if you don’t smoke, your implants will maintain their appearance for many years.
