Many people in Chino Hills, California, and elsewhere were born with beautiful natural smiles, but life can take a toll on our teeth as we age. Even if you practice excellent oral hygiene, you can still experience staining from foods and beverages, decay, accidents, or injuries that could cause tooth loss.
Modern dental technology allows many options to replace missing teeth, and dental implants are the most popular.
Dental implants consist of a titanium post that replaces a tooth’s root. These posts are implanted directly into the jawbone and can be used to replace one tooth or several teeth.
When the titanium screws are set into the jawbone, the dentist then attaches a porcelain crown to the screw. Best of all, dental implants can be used to support dental prostheses, including dentures, bridges, and crowns.
It’s important to replace missing teeth because, without doing so, it can affect your remaining teeth and even the bones in your jaw. Here are some of the benefits of dental implants.
In addition to single dental implants, you also have a couple more options.
