Patients in Roseville, California, who are looking to replace a tooth turn to implant restorations because they are cost effective, better for your oral health than removable appliances, and provide fully functioning results. After a dental implant is placed and heals, it will look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth.
By replacing a missing tooth, you can feel more confident about having a complete smile. In addition to this boost in confidence, you can have peace of mind in knowing that your dental implant is actively contributing to your oral health by preventing bone loss and dental shifting. Dr. Daniel Martin at Placer Oral & Dental Implant Surgery offers single tooth implants and tooth-supported restorations to patients in Roseville, CA, and surrounding areas.
Teeth roots naturally stimulate the jaw bone during chewing, keeping the bone strong and healthy. When a tooth or teeth are missing, the jaw bone loses this stimulation and begins to deteriorate. Even if just one tooth is missing, the jaw bone can weaken. This can lead to facial sagging and adjacent teeth shifting into the open space.
A dental implant is designed to fully replicate a natural tooth, including the root, to keep the jaw bone strong and prevent bone loss. Dental implants are the only tooth restoration option that protects the jaw bone; more traditional options, such as partial dentures or bridges, only sit on top of the bony ridge in the mouth.
When you choose dental implants to replace a missing tooth, you optimize your tooth restoration. Benefits of this remarkable treatment include:
Adult teeth are meant to last forever, but injury, disease, or poor oral hygiene can cause them to fall out or decay prematurely. At Placer Oral & Dental Implant Surgery, we believe that everyone deserves a smile to be proud of. If you have recently lost a tooth or have been missing a tooth for many years, we will create a treatment plan that restores your smile and your confidence.
There are many types of tooth replacement options to consider. Dr. Martin will walk you through these options and help determine the right treatment for your current oral health and financial situation. These options include:
If you have a damaged or failing tooth that needs to be extracted, Dr. Martin can extract the tooth and place a dental implant at the same visit. This saves you time and money and prevents you from having to go without a tooth. In order to qualify for same-day dental implants, there must be enough jaw bone to support the implant. If there is not enough jaw bone, Dr. Martin can insert a bone graft following an extraction to regrow bone, and you can return at a later date to receive the implant.
