Losing teeth will leave a gap in your mouth; you become conscious of breaking into that wide smile of yours. Your tendency will be to place your hand in your mouth when you do that. When you are in this situation you have dental treatment options to choose from like; bridge, tooth implant, and denture if more tooth are involved.
Your dentist in Upland will usually recommend dental implants which are less expensive than a bridge over the long term since a bridge over natural teeth has to be replaced more often. Bridges and denture can fall short of dental implant in terms of overall customer satisfaction. A dental implant restored tooth is the next best thing to natural teeth which lasts longer and costs no more than other treatments in the long term.
At Upland Dental Practice we have the latest tools and state of the art equipment to handle any type of Upland dental care that you need. If ever any of your teeth was displaced we recommend dental implants to help you with your concern. Our prosthodontist dentist has earned a prestigious American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) credential. This is a stringent requirement that must be earned through education, training, examination and the demonstration of competency in implant industry. Dental implants are often the first choice compared to other options to restore missing or damaged teeth.
Built to last
Dental implants are a long term solution. Traditional bridge last five to seven years and with proper care often more than ten years but needs replacement at some point. Dental implants may need periodical adjustments and last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for.
Next best thing to natural teeth
Dental implants are strong and stable; restores lost tooth so that it looks, fits, and function like a natural tooth. Other options can lead to bone deterioration and interfere with smiling, eating, and speaking.
Retain natural face shape and smile
Without teeth your face can sag and appear sunken and sad. Dental implants will maintain the shape of your face and smile.
You don’t have to stay home, feel uncomfortable in public, embarrassed that your smile looks different, and worried that missing teeth will limit your ability to join the fun. Removable dentures will loosen or fall out when you talk or laugh.
Removable dentures can mean struggling to pronounce words. Not with dental implants which function like natural teeth.
Protect healthy bone
Leaving empty spaces in your mouth after losing one or more teeth can lead to health concerns like the loss and deterioration of your jawbone. When it is not used to support natural tooth, the jawbone deteriorates its strength and firmness.
