Remember when you were a child and lost your baby teeth in happy anticipation of a visit from the Tooth Fairy? Good times, those were!
But as an adult, if you are missing one or more of your teeth, you are unlikely to smile.
Adults can lose teeth because of gum disease, infection, or decay – from a lifetime of poor dental habits. Teeth can also be lost by trauma or athletic injury. Occasionally, teeth are absent at birth.
At StarWhite Dental, we want to put that smile back on your face,e and a dental implant is one way to do that. We can provide you with a permanent, long-term solution that can help restore your self-confidence and put your worries about your missing teeth to rest.
Dental implants are a unique and revolutionary solution to:
How does a dental implant work? An implant begins with a titanium or zirconia post that functions like the root of your tooth. The post is surgically positioned in your jawbone beneath the gum line. It fuses with your bone,e and the post becomes a sturdy foundation for your custom-made crown. The good news is that implants can’t come loose like dentures can,n and they don’t have to be anchored to other teeth like bridges. Implants feel, look, and function like real teeth…but do not decay! You must take good care of them by flossing and brushing and visiting our office for regular dental cleanings and check-ups.
To learn more, call to schedule a consultation. At that time, we will examine your teeth, take x-rays and determine if you have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. You may require a bone graft if your bone is too thin or soft. You must also be in good, general health.
We look forward to discussing your dental health at (951) 698-4426.
A Dental implant is a tooth made of a titanium post with a replacement tooth (crown) attached to the top. Dental implants can replace a single tooth, several teeth, anchor a dental bridge, or a full arch of teeth.
