If you have lost one or more teeth, you have probably noticed that the function and appearance of your smile is not what it once was. You may experience difficulty when chewing or speaking, and you may feel embarrassed about the gaps left in your smile. Dental implants may be the solution you need to restore your smile. A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone at the location of the missing tooth. This replaces the missing tooth root and offers a strong, stable foundation for the replacement tooth. After a period of healing, which usually lasts a few months, our dentist will attach the implant restoration to the top of the post. Depending on which teeth are missing, the restoration you need may be a dental crown, a bridge, a partial denture, or a complete denture. Dr. Gary Cappelletti will help you determine what is right for you.
Once your dental implants are in place, your smile will be returned to good function, health, and appearance. Dental implants in Danville, California, can improve your smile by:
- Preventing the remaining teeth from moving out of position
- Filling in spaces and gaps left by missing teeth
- Restoring your ability to chew, speak, and eat as normal
- Improving the volume and shape of your face
- Enhancing the beauty of your smile
With proper care, your implants can last a lifetime. For more information, we welcome you to contact El Cerro Dental today!
