Why We Recommend Dental Implants For Our Northridge Dental Group Patients
If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, it can be upsetting and can change the way you chew your food, speak, and even interact with others. At Northridge Dental Group, we have a solution that can restore your oral health and change your life — dental implants. Dental implants have been used for many years and are the best tooth replacement option for many patients because they not only restore your oral health, but they also closely mimic the function and appearance of natural teeth.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are made of titanium fixtures. We only use US built implants that have been around for over 50 years and we have an in-office guarantee policy for our patients on both surgical and restoration. Over time, this prosthesis fuses with the bone to create a permanent solution. The complete process is lengthy and consists of three parts: the implant, a connector, and a replacement tooth, such as a dental crown. We can use dental implants to replace one tooth or multiple teeth. For patients who need a full mouth reconstruction and to replace a full arch of teeth, it can be extremely costly to use single implants for each tooth. For these patients, we recommend All-on-4 implants. This method uses four precisely placed implants, which reduces overall treatment time as well as cost.
Benefits of Dental Implants
When considering tooth replacement options, many of our patients are looking for a treatment that will last for years. Dental implants last for many years, and when you care for them properly, they can last for the rest of your life. Dental implants only require brushing, flossing, and routine oral hygiene visits to our office. Other benefits include:
- No food restrictions
- Jawbone stimulation (reducing the risk of bone loss)
- Improved self-esteem
- No impact on speech
