Do you need to replace damaged or lost teeth? Are you looking for a permanent solution that will provide a secure and natural-looking smile?
Dr. Schweifler places dental implants in Mountain View, CA to replace one or more missing teeth. Implant dentistry provides a permanent solution for tooth loss. Dental implants offer patients a range of unique benefits that support the long term structure and health of their smile. If you have recently had teeth extracted, been told that you have “hopeless teeth” or need to replace a slipping denture, dental implants could be the tooth loss solution you have been searching for.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
When it comes to replacing teeth with an option that supports all aspects of your oral health and overall appearance, dental implants are the most comprehensive and natural of all tooth replacement options. The benefits they offer include:
- Maintains jaw bone structure: the implanted post will serve as a replacement tooth root, an important factor in reducing bone loss in the jaw after a tooth root is lost.
- Secure and permanent outcome: with the placement of a dental implant, your new tooth is as secure and stable as your existing natural teeth. When implants are placed to secure a denture, there is no removing and cleaning on a daily basis.
- Confident speech and normal chewing: dental implants look and function like natural teeth. Once placed and healed, you can speak and eat with confidence that your new tooth will not move or fall out.
Dr. Schweifler can place a single dental implant or use several implants to secure a denture or bridge of several or a full arch of teeth that are missing. With an implant-supported bridge or denture, you have a new smile that is permanent, secure, and supporting your dental health.
Implant dentures: secure results for full arch tooth replacement.
Do you have a full arch of missing teeth? Do you have a denture that is uncomfortable or slips when eating or speaking?
Dr. Schweifler can work with you to create a smile that is permanent and secure with an implant-supported denture or bridge. If there are additional dental problems such as significant bone loss or gum disease we can create a comprehensive treatment plan to restore all aspects of your oral health for a stable long term result.
When dental implants are used to secure a denture, patients can enjoy the benefits that they offer for overall dental health and the appearance of the jaw. After several or a full arch of teeth are lost, the jaw can become sunken as bone deteriorates due to a lack of stimulation from natural biting forces on the tooth root. The implant, serving as the new tooth root will provide the stability needed to maintain the structure of your jaw and the fit of your bite after a denture is placed.
