If you’re struggling with tooth loss, consider replacing missing teeth with implants. Implants have unique restorative qualities that dentures don’t have, making them more effective and efficient in restoring your smile. By scheduling an appointment with your Sunnyvale, California, implant dentist, Dr. Ryan Zhuoran Zhao from Harmony Smile Dental, you can see if you’re a good candidate for implant dentistry.
Implants offer a permanent solution to replacing lost teeth, as the implant itself can last a lifetime, saving you the expense of redoing this treatment in the future. That’s a valuable quality of implant dentistry. Unlike dentures which require special upkeep, implants are easy to care for, requiring only regular brushing, flossing and routine dental care, just like natural teeth. Additional benefits include:
Natural appearance: Implants are composed of a titanium post, an abutment and a dental crown. When combined, these parts mimic the structure and function of natural teeth. The titanium post is surgically implanted into your jaw to become your new tooth root. The abutment and crown are attached on top to replace your lost tooth. The only visible part is your crown, which will be customized to resemble a natural tooth.
Functionality: Implants offer full functionality, just like natural teeth, as the titanium post keeps your new teeth securely in place at all times. You can smile, laugh, talk, eat or sing in public without any fear of your teeth slipping or shifting out of position. Your new porcelain crown teeth will give you efficient chewing power for years.
Success rate: Dental implants have a high success rate as a restorative dental treatment. Working with an experienced implant dentist like Dr. Zhao will ensure you have a positive, productive procedure.
Improved oral health: Implants contribute to good oral health by keeping natural teeth in alignment, preserving your bite and jawbone structure, just like natural teeth. Implants also facilitate good oral hygiene to prevent decay and gum disease.
