Southridge Dental Group proudly provides dental implants at our office in Fontana. As the premiere choice for missing teeth, dental implants give you a beautiful smile, while also serving to keep your mouth and jaw healthy. Dental implants are suitable for healthy individuals who have one or more missing teeth. Dental implants can help fill gaps in your smile caused by one missing tooth or several missing teeth.
What Are Dental Implants the Best Treatment for Missing Teeth?
Dentists recommend dental implants over other tooth replacement options for several reasons. The greatest benefit of dental implants is that they help prevent bone loss in your jaw. When you have missing teeth, your jaw begins to deteriorate, as it is not needed to anchor your teeth to your jaw. A diminishing jaw is responsible for the sunken look that develops in those who do not have teeth. Maintaining integrity in your jaw is the key medical benefit of dental implants.
However, dental implants also offer incredible durability. Unlike a dental bridge which will need to be replaced at least every 5-7 years, dental implants can last a lifetime if you take diligent care of them. If you choose to get dental implants you will be instructed precisely how to care for them so that they last for decades.
Dental implants also help to ensure that you can chew and speak naturally. Because implants look and act exactly like natural teeth, you won’t have to worry about avoiding certain foods, or developing a change in your speech caused by missing teeth.
In addition, dental implants help maintain the alignment of your other teeth. When you have a gap between your teeth, the teeth surrounding the gap often begin shifting into the space. This renders any previous tooth straightening you’ve had done, obsolete. A dental implant can help to keep your smile straight and even.
Dental implants also don’t cause any harm to adjacent teeth. Unlike a dental bridge, which must be anchored to adjacent teeth, dental implants stand alone, causing no harm to other teeth in your mouth.
Of course, dental implants also create a beautiful smile. Each implant is custom-made to match your other teeth in size, color, and overall appearance. They are so natural looking, no one will know you have a dental implant unless you tell them.
Am I Eligible for Dental Implants?
Most people will be eligible candidates for dental implants in Fontana. You will need to be in relatively good health, as dental implants require surgery. You will also need to be free of active gum disease before you can be scheduled for surgery. Certain underlying medical conditions may need to be controlled before your implant surgery can be scheduled. You will also need to have enough healthy jawbone to support the implant. Our dental implant dentists at Southridge Dental Group in Fontana will provide a complete examination and will provide you with other options if for any reason, you’re not a suitable candidate for dental implants.
