When you lose teeth, you lose more than just confidence in your smile. This is a problem that can negatively impact your oral health, make it harder to bite and chew comfortably, and even increase your risk for losing more teeth over time! At our Santa Monica, CA dentist’s office, we are prepared to help. A stable, lifelike prosthetic restoration can give you back your smile. With the right support, it can also help you regain a natural bite and keep neighboring teeth from shifting and loosening. What can give you this kind of support? A dental implant can be set directly into your jawbone to hold a restoration in place permanently. We can provide treatment to place and restore an implant. Because we have an on-site periodontal specialist ready to help you, we can also help you deal with unresolved troubles with gum disease that may affect your candidacy for this treatment.
What Can A Dental Implant Do For Me?
Dental implants make it possible for us to address troubles that you have with tooth loss. More than just a cosmetic improvement, the presence of an implant-held restoration can give you more confidence in your bite, stop teeth from shifting, and even help you keep your jawbone healthy. When you have confidence that your restoration will stay in place and support you, it is easier to regain a more confident dental function and feel better about your smile.
Am I Ready To Receive My Implant?
Many people who have suffered tooth loss will make good candidates for implant placement. With that said, there are issues like poor jaw health and unresolved periodontal problems that can affect someone’s candidacy. We can talk to you about services that can prepare you for a successful placement. If you have issues that affect your gums that stand between you and your restored smile, you can work with our on-site periodontist to address them.
How Will I Care For My Smile After My Procedure?
After you complete treatment to restore your implant, you can marvel at how comfortable you feel biting and chewing food, and how natural your smile looks. Keeping up with good daily habits and regular dental exams will be important after treatment, just as it was before you suffered tooth loss. While we can offer guidance on maintaining your smile after your services are complete, you can find that the same preventive care you previously required remains beneficial.
