Don’t leave your tooth loss untreated if you value your oral health.
Losing a tooth as an adult can be rather nerve-wracking. While it might seem easier to just bury your face in the sand about the whole thing, if you want to protect the rest of your healthy smile from the ramifications of tooth loss, then you may just want to sit down and talk to our Turlock, CA, family dentist, Dr. Cesar Acosta, about how dental implants could easily prevent tooth loss complications from happening to you.
If you are missing one or more teeth then you could certainly benefit from what dental implants have to offer. While there are other options to consider, if you want a restoration that is as close to natural teeth as possible then you’ll want to consider getting dental implants in Turlock. Here are some other reasons to choose implants to replace your missing teeth:
They stay in place: Removable dentures may certainly be less expensive and faster to get, but most people realize rather quickly that dentures aren’t exactly what they bargained for. These artificial teeth can unexpectedly shift around, making chewing or speaking a challenge at times. Since implants actually bond with your jawbone and tissue you’ll have a restoration that stays in place so you can chew with confidence.
They prevent teeth from shifting around: When you lose a tooth, the rest of your natural teeth will start to move into that open gap, causing some pretty unpleasant alignment issues. If you don’t want to have to wear braces on top of also replacing your missing tooth then you’ll want to get dental implants right away.
To protect the health of your jawbone: While most people worry about the aesthetic issues of tooth loss, what are most important are the problems that you can’t see. Since your jawbone needs stimulation from your tooth roots, once a tooth has fallen out the jawbone will recede and breakdown. To prevent this, we place the implant into the jawbone so that it will take the place of your tooth roots and provide the bone with the ample stimulation it needs to remain healthy and strong.
