The Unique Benefits of Dental Implants
Find out why so many adults are turning to dental implants to replace their missing teeth.
Since dental implants mimic the functionality and aesthetics of a real tooth. This tooth replacement option offers patients great long-term benefits. If you’ve been thinking of turning to our Costa Mesa, CA, general dentists to get dental implants, here are some of the unique benefits associated with this restoration,
Built for Life
If you want a tooth that could last the rest of your life with proper oral care then dental implants can offer you the long-term solution you’ve been looking for. While implants don’t look like tooth roots they are designed to take the place of missing tooth roots. An implant is placed into the jawbone, where it stimulates the bone in the same way as tooth roots. This helps the jawbone stay healthy and strong. Implants are also made from titanium, which is a biocompatible and incredibly resilient restoration that could last several decades.
Preserve the Jawbone
Tooth loss can cause even further complications if you don’t replace your missing tooth or teeth as soon as possible. Untreated tooth loss leads to bone loss. As the jawbone deteriorates, this also leads to changes in the shape of the face. A shrinking jawbone causes sunken cheeks and premature sagging, but by turning to our Costa Mesa, CA, family dentist right away for treatment, we can place dental implants to prevent further bone loss.
Not only will a dental implant fill those gaps and give you a restoration that looks just like the rest of your natural smile, but implants can also fully restore chewing and speaking so you never have to feel self-conscious talking to friends or colleagues. Implants function just like real teeth, which also means that you’ll be able to enjoy all of your favorite foods.
Easy to Care for
Implants also don’t require any special care or maintenance. Treat them just like real teeth, which means brushing and flossing them every day and visiting your dentist for routine checkups. Implants stay put so you don’t have to worry about taking them out every night or getting special products. As long as your oral care routine is stellar your implant will remain healthy.
