Replacing missing teeth can restore more than smiles in Redlands, CA

If you are missing teeth, when was the last time you really smiled? Chances are, you avoid smiling or do your best to hide the missing teeth from others.

If you are a denture wearer, how confident are you that your dentures will always stay in place? Are you constantly worried about them slipping or falling out when you eat or speak?

For many Americans with missing teeth, traditional dentures are simply not a good fit. While these restorations have been around a long time, they can’t provide the stability, function, and aesthetics that come from natural teeth. So if you are dealing with gaps in your smile, what is your other option to replace missing teeth?

The answer is Dental Implants.


Dental implants differ from restorations that sit on top of the gums because they are actually integrated into the bone. By placing the implant into the bone, the replacement teeth have a strong anchor, similar to a natural tooth root to keep them in place.

The implant also serves another important function – bone stimulation. Without stimulation from a tooth root, the jawbone can deteriorate over time. This can cause remaining teeth to shift and change the fit of appliances such as partial dentures. With dental implants, this is no longer a worry – neighboring teeth are not affected.

While all major restorations: dentures, bridges, and implants improve functionality and beauty of the smile. Only dental implants truly give patients a restored confidence in the stability of their new teeth. With dental implants, patients can bite, chew, and speak just as easily as with natural teeth.

Once you’ve decide dental implants may be the right choice for you, it’s important to set up a consultation at our Redlands, CA office. During your evaluation, we will look at the bone structure to make sure it is strong and sufficient to support the dental implant. In some cases, a bone or soft tissue graft may be necessary prior to dental implants. We will also check for oral health and make recommendations for treating any decay or gum disease prior to receiving implants.

If you are ready to smile again, call us to set up your dental implants evaluation.
