If you’re facing tooth loss, the experience can be quite stressful. You might wonder if your smile will ever be the same again. Fortunately, there are a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures from your Newport Beach and Garden Grove, CA dentist, Dr. dental implantsTimothy Bui, that can work wonders on your smile. For most people, dental implants should be the top choice to replace missing teeth and restore a bright, natural-looking smile.

What Are Dental Implants?

Implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone. The post replaces the tooth root and serves as a foundation for a cosmetic tooth replacement. Crowns, dentures, bridges and veneers can then be placed over them.

Dental implants are permanently anchored into your jaw. Like natural teeth, it’s possible for them to break under certain circumstances, such as trauma to the teeth or jaw. But in general, implants are expected to last several decades, and the likelihood is high that you’ll keep them for a lifetime.

Benefits of Dental Implants

The main benefit of dental implants is their ability to maintain bone tissue in the jaw. Once a tooth is gone, the bone that once supported it begins to break down. This bone loss eventually leads to a collapsed facial appearance and increased risk to your remaining teeth.

The best way to prevent bone loss is to replace the tooth root, not just the visible part of the tooth. Dental implants are the only way to accomplish this. They fuse with the jawbone to stimulate the maintenance of bone tissue, keeping your whole jaw and mouth healthy while improving the look of your smile.

Other benefits of implants include:

  • Better quality of life
  • Higher self-esteem
  • Eat your favorite foods worry-free
  • Improved bite and jaw function
