Saratoga tooth implants

Dental implants from Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA support teeth so lifelike, patients have been known to forget some of their teeth aren’t real. That’s now natural their look and function is.

Those simple facts are enough to make most people choose dental implants if they need to replace one or more of their teeth. Then they learn that in addition to those benefits, implants can actually preserve and promote healthy bone mass in their jaws.

Dental Implants and Bone Loss

An unfortunate consequence of losing teeth is that the surrounding bone begins to atrophy. This begins almost immediately, and is usually noticeable within a year or so. The person’s face takes on a shrunken or sagging appearance. The more teeth that are missing, the more pronounced it is.

This happens because of the missing tooth root. But because dental implants are physically attached to the jaw, they mimic the root. The natural biting and chewing motions stimulate the bone and encourage new tissue to grow around the implant.

One dental implant can support one artificial tooth, and several can support a bridge, and even a full dental arch. At Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA we have placed them in patients from Saratoga, Campbell, and Sunnyvale. They also come to us for other restorative dentistry options. Contact us today!

When an adult tooth is lost, it won’t grow back. But artificial teeth supported by dental implants from Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA are a lifelike solution!

Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed in your jaw, where they fuse with the bone. They can support artificial teeth that look and function like the real thing. One implant can support one artificial tooth, while several can support a full dental arch.

Benefits

Supporting lifelike replacement teeth are one of the biggest benefits of dental implants. Your ability to bite and chew is virtually normal. And that’s to say nothing of your restored smile!

But implants do even more. When a tooth is lost, the bone around it begins to deteriorate. In time, that results in a sunken appearance in the face. Dental implants help to prevent that loss of bone mass.

Having an implant inserted into your jaw bone is, strictly speaking, a surgical procedure. Most patients breeze through it and are able to resume their usual activities by the next day. Post-procedure discomfort is usually mild and can be controlled with over-the-counter pain medication.
