A missing tooth can ruin your smile, affect your self-esteem and can hinder your ability to eat or the proper function of your jaw. Over time the rest of your teeth may begin to shift due to the absence of the tooth. The more missing teeth the worse all these problems can be. Those missing teeth sufferers who are looking for permanent teeth should consider 95119 dental implants. Santa Teresa Family Dental has been providing implant dentistry to our patients for many years. There have been incredible advances in implant dentistry over the past five years and our doctor is trained and highly experienced in all the latest implant techniques and protocols.
Dental implants serve as permanent teeth and can replace one tooth, several teeth or a full mouthful of teeth. They can be used as an alternative to traditional removable dentures, but feel more secure and function better. A 95119 dental implant consists of two basic parts, first is the implant that is surgically anchored under the gum and directly into the bone. In a few months the anchor becomes part of the bone becoming a very stable and secure root for the new tooth. The implant becomes the anchor for the visible part to the new tooth and, in essence, replaces the root of the original tooth, which has been removed. The implant is then topped by a crown, which is the visible part of the tooth, which protects the implant as well as forming the new chewing surface. The implant looks; feels and function just like the natural tooth it replaced. Implants can also be used to support bridges and full or partial dentures instead of individual crowns.
