If you have one or more missing teeth that you would like to replace, gone are the days when your only choice would be a fixed bridge or removable dentures. Thanks to the advancements in implant dentistry, our 93550 dentist can provide you with a new tooth that looks, feels, and acts like your natural ones, so you can enjoy benefits that have never been possible with other full-tooth restorations. We at ValleyWide Dental think you’ll be happy with the results.
A dental implant replaces not just the tooth on the surface, but the root beneath. This means that your new tooth will have a durable foundation. In addition, replacing the root preserves your normal facial contours, and prevents vital gum and bone tissue from atrophying. This new root is in the form of a titanium post that is surgically placed in your jaw. Over the course of several months, your jaw bone will grow around it, eventually fusing with it to create a strong bond. The second part of the implant is a tooth-colored crown put onto the top of the post by our 93550 dentist. It is cemented to it, creating a permanent new tooth. You’ll be able to eat with confidence, even foods that are challenging. You can floss between your implant and your other teeth as you normally would.
Unlike a fixed bridge, which requires that the tooth on either side of it to be drilled down and then capped in order to anchor it in place, an implant by our 93550 dentist has no effect on your other teeth. And unlike removable dentures, there is no messy adhesives needed to keep your implant in place. Dentures can slide on you when you speak or chew, but that will never happen with an implant.
About 98% of implants are a success. That’s an impressive number and one that should inspire you to feel confident. In order to be a good candidate for one, you need to have generally healthy gums and a jaw bone that is sufficiently thick to support the post. If it isn’t, our 93550 dentist can discuss a bone grafting procedure as a way to let you still get an implant regardless.
Here at ValleyWide Dental, Palmdale dental implants are some of the most valuable and life changing services we have to offer our patients. Missing teeth or teeth that have been extracted can have a huge impact on your day to day enjoyment of life, as well as your general functioning. Often, our patients who are struggling with tooth loss express issues like difficulty chewing their food, or differences in their pronunciation of words. Most of all, patients are concerned about the way they look with missing teeth. That is why the experts here at ValleyWide Dental are so proud to offer Palmdale dental implants to our deserving patients. The implants themselves are small metal parts that are put in place right in the jaw bone, in the area where a tooth is missing. Then, the metal from the implant joins together with that bone mass in your jaw, and together the two form a sturdy foundation that is meant to replace the “root” of a natural tooth. After this foundation is fully formed, the experts here at ValleyWide Dental can then attach a replacement tooth in the form of a customized dental crown. This attachment will complete the dental implant restoration, and allow you to reap all of the incredible benefits of having a fully restored smile. You will be able to chew your food properly, speak the way you normally would, and best of all, smile with pride. You deserve to show off your smile to everyone, everyday!
