Are dental implants on the list of options you've been considering to improve your smile? Madera, CA, dentist Dr. Ahmed ElSayed dental implantsdiscusses a few reasons why implants are an excellent restoration option.

Dental implants are a good choice no matter how many teeth you've lost

Implants are so versatile that they can replace any number of missing teeth. If you've only lost a single tooth, you'll require one implant. When you no longer have any teeth in your upper or lower jaw, an implant-supported denture can be secured using just four to six implants.

Implants are long lasting

If you take good care of your dental implants, they may last the rest of your life. Dental implants become part of your jawbone during a bonding process called osseointegration. Once osseointegration occurs, your new implants become just as strong as your natural roots. Implant care is simple and only requires daily brushing and flossing and regular checkups in our Madera office. Failing to maintain a good oral hygiene routine can result in an infection that may loosen the implant.

Dental implants securely anchor crowns

Dental implants fill the space in your jaw that once held your roots, but they're just one part of your new tooth. After the implant osseointegrates, you'll receive an abutment, a connector that attaches a dental crown to the implant. Your new crown will fill the gap in your teeth and complete the implant process. Because the crown is securely attached to your implant, it won't move when you eat or irritate your gums.

Implants help you avoid bone loss

Bone loss is a common problem after tooth loss. When you have all of your teeth, your jawbone is strong because the roots of the teeth press on it constantly. Unfortunately, the loss of even one tooth can eventually weaken the bone. As the bone shrinks, your facial muscles may sag and other teeth may begin to become loose. The pressure of removable dentures on the gums can also accelerate bone loss. Dental implants stimulate the bone, which keeps it strong and helps you avoid further loss of teeth.
