Nearly 40 million Americans right now, this very minute, are missing each and every one of their adult teeth. More than 100 million Americans are missing at least one of their adult teeth, too.
And while some of these people will look forward to taking advantage of everything modern dentures have to offer, dental implants provide a much better solution – a much more permanent solution – than ever before.
Sure, there are a number of different prosthetic tooth options to pick and choose from but we here at Vallejo Oral Surgery highly recommend dental implants more than anything else. Find out why below.
Five Reasons to Pick Dental Implants
Dental Implants Look Like Real Teeth
Regardless of whether or not you’re missing one tooth or all of your teeth, replacing them with a dental implant with the help of our expert oral and maxillofacial surgeons here at Vallejo Oral Surgery guarantees that you can rebuild and refresh your smile – back to better than brand-new condition – with dental implants.
They look, feel, and act just like real teeth!
Dental Implants are Permanent
Dentures (and other teeth replacement prosthetics) are semipermanent at best, nowhere near as durable or as resistant to decay as dental implants, and certainly aren’t permanently bonded to your jawbone the way that dental implants are. Dental implants are “fit for life”.
Dental Implants are Easy to Take Care Of
Another huge advantage of dental implants is that you can brush, floss, and clean them just the same way as you would clean any of your other teeth. Dental professionals can clean them just the same as well when you go in for a checkup, repairing them, cleaning them, and helping them to shine just as brightly as the rest of your smile.
Dental Implants Support Jaw Health
The roots of your teeth aren’t just there to cement them in place but are also designed to support the health and vitality of your jaw itself. When you lose a tooth, that support structure is eliminated completely, and your jaw becomes weaker.
With dental implants (and the titanium post driven into your jaw to replicate the root system of natural teeth) you encourage bone growth again, support a healthy jaw, and give more structure to your face than other prosthetics could.
Dental Implants are a Custom Solution to an Individual Issue
There’s no such thing as a “one-size-fits-all” kind of dental implant the way there is in the world of dentures.
Instead, every single dental implant is perfectly custom, totally built for your specific smile, and is anything but an off-the-shelf kind of solution. These dental implants improve the way your smile looks as well as the way it feels and functions, and the solutions can be designed to replace a single tooth, 10 teeth, or all 32!
