Implants for teeth are saving faces in Glendale, CA

Missing teeth have a tremendous impact on your appearance. In addition to smile gaps, lack of support allows adjacent teeth to go crooked. Spaces and overlaps make hygiene challenging, leading to stains, tooth decay, and gum disease. Resulting problems may be even more serious than that. Keep reading to learn how implants for teeth can spare Glendale, CA patients from dental issues.

Understanding implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root. It resides in the jawbone, and is finished with a dental crown. This is a significant difference from a partial denture or a dental bridge, both of which sit on top of gum tissue.

Combating bone loss

Each time you bite down on a natural tooth, your body receives signals through the root indicating that stability is needed for chewing. Minerals and nutrients are sent to the site, keeping bone dense and strong.

When even one tooth is missing, vital stimulation is lost. The body sends building blocks to other areas, gradually deteriorating bone in the jaw. The face develops a caved in appearance, and bone resorption may begin to impact stability of adjacent teeth.

A dental implant mimics the root of a natural tooth, transferring bite sensation in the same manner. Not only do you get a complete smile and restored chewing function, the implant helps to keep facial features full and looking more youthful.

Additional benefits of implants

  • High success rate. With good oral care, an implant can last a lifetime.
  • Feels like real. An implant restoration looks, feels, and chews like a natural tooth. You may forget which tooth is the implant!
  • Easy care. Just brush and floss normally, and be sure to maintain regular checkups at Bright Smiles Dental Studio in Glendale, CA.

I am so relieved to have found Dr. Garcia and Bright Smiles. My husband had not been to the dentist in years and he was all smiles when we left. The staff is friendly and work with you on billing. The office uses the latest technology and Dr. Garcia puts you at ease by explaining everything clearly. They take a conservative approach which we appreciate. I highly recommend.
