Tooth loss can be devastating to many patients in the Redlands, California area. It can impact the appearance, function, and the health of the smile. When patients are working with a dentist to discuss restoration, they can ask their dentist about replacement options. This may include replacements for the full mouth or a single tooth. Tooth replacement options available at Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry include:
- Dental implants
- Dental bridges
- Implant-supported dentures
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are known as the “gold standard” in tooth replacement. These restorations are used in a variety of ways. For single tooth replacement, they are placed into the bone of the jaw and restored with a crown. Implants may also be utilized to support a dental bridge or for stabilization of full cosmetic dentures. These titanium posts are extremely versatile and are a great investment in the smile.
Why choose dental implants?
Dental implants have several benefits. The primary reason patients choose dental implants is because they are permanent. That means less time in the dental chair for replacements and repairs. It also means that patients can rest easy knowing their repair is dependable and long-lasting. Implants act as natural tooth roots and are placed during oral surgery.
Who is a candidate for implants?
The best candidates for dental implants are patients with sufficient bone structure of the jaw. Ample bone is necessary to hold the implant in place and ensure successful surgery. The jaw bone is the foundation for the implant, which becomes the foundation for another restoration. Patients undergo a series of x-rays to determine candidacy for this and other tooth replacement solutions.
