What Is a Dental Implant and How Can They Benefit Patients Looking to Fill Gaps Caused by Missing Teeth?

Are you looking to replace a tooth that has fallen out or been extracted? Dentists all over America conclude that a tooth implant is the most effective way one can replace a missing tooth. While there are other options out there including dentures and bridges, a dental implant is the strongest and long-lasting option available. Let’s look at why Dr. Carlos Garcia and his team at Bright Smiles Dental Studio in Glendale, CA, view dental implants as the best choice for anybody seeking to replace a missing tooth or teeth.

So, What Exactly is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant consists of three main components. First is the implant itself, which is a tiny post (usually made of titanium) that is surgically embedded into the jawbone. This implant serves as a mount to which an abutment will be placed. An artificial tooth can then be secured to the abutment for a look that appears completely natural to anybody who sees it. At Bright Smiles Dental Studio, Dr. Garcia partners with trusted periodontists to precisely plan, place, and restore dental implants so that you have a beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime.

Benefits of a Dental Implant

Now that we have discussed what a dental implant is, let us look at why they are so highly regarded in the dental community.

  1. Preserves Facial Appearance – When a tooth is lost, a change in your facial appearance can occur. Your face can take on a sunken-in look. A dental implant can preserve your natural facial structure.
  2. Jawbone Preservation – Your jawbone depends on tooth roots for blood flow and stimulation. Without this, your jawbone will eventually begin to collapse and diminish. A dental implant is a great replacement for a natural tooth root.
  3. Teeth Kept in Place – When gaps are created in your smile by missing teeth, the rest of your teeth will eventually begin to shift into this open space. A dental implant will eliminate this gap and prevent any teeth from shifting.

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.
