Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth that have been lost due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. In fact, they are the most reliable long-term option for restoring your smile. If you are self-conscious because you have a toothless grin, wear dentures that are uncomfortable, or don’t have proper tooth structure to create a dental bridge, talk to Dr. Suzanne Haeri, DDS to see if dental implants are the right option for you.
To define a dental implant, it is actually a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth. Like tooth roots, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are not visible once surgically placed. If you’ve lost teeth for any reason, the shape of your face may change, causing you to appear older than your actual age. That’s because when teeth are lost, the bone that supported those teeth is lost too. Placing dental implants stabilize the bone, preventing its loss. In addition to replacing lost teeth, implants help maintain the jawbone’s shape and density. They also help you eat, chew, smile, talk, and look completely natural.
