This September, take advantage of Self Improvement Month to set some goals and make things in your life better. One way we can help you do that is with dental implants in San Diego, CA and a healthier, stronger more natural-looking smile. Implants offer more than just aesthetic benefits; they also protect the mouth and bone and make your mouth healthier.
If you have missing teeth and are looking at options to restore them, dental implants are one of the best ways you can go. While there is an investment up front, the good news is that dental implants can last a lifetime if they are placed correctly and cared for thoroughly. Caring for implants involves brushing twice a day, flossing once a day and seeing a cosmetic dentist for a professional cleaning every six month. As this is the same as you would care for your natural teeth, there’s no additional work with implants.
Because implants are placed directly in the jawbone and the permanent tooth is placed on top, they function exactly as the natural teeth do. There is little adjustment to the teeth surrounding the implant and you can eat whatever you want whenever you want to. You also don’t have to worry about fake teeth slipping or moving around when you are in public.
Without the natural tooth’s root to stimulate the bone, the jawbone will deteriorate over time. Dental Implants are placed in the jawbone, which then infuse to them. Over time, the implant will work as a natural tooth root would and stimulate the jawbone to grow and regenerate, preserving the bone and the shape of your face.
