At Ever Care Dental, we do everything possible to save your natural teeth. We know that keeping your teeth is best for your overall health and dental function. Occasionally, despite our best efforts, it may be impossible to save your tooth. If that time comes, Dr. Elaine Gonzales will be able to recommend a variety of tooth replacement therapies.
Of all types of tooth replacement options, implants remain one of the best and most recommended. Because implants are actually rooted in your bone structure, they mimic your natural teeth and provide excellent function and stability to your bite.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a tooth replacement device that is surgically placed in your bone and topped with a dental crown. Dental implants are typically made from titanium and are strong and reliable. With proper care and maintenance, they can last a lifetime. A simple evaluation will tell us if you are a good candidate for a dental implant.
We work closely with some of the best oral surgeons in our area to make sure that your procedure goes smoothly from start to finish. An oral surgeon will place your implant, and then you will be given time for your bone to heal and stabilize.
Once your bone has healed, you will return to Dr. Gonzales at Ever Care Dental, and she will place a custom crown on top of your implant. Your new implant will provide an aesthetically attractive and functional solution to your missing tooth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants have wide-ranging benefits. From increasing the chewing function of your teeth to improving speech, dental implants can make everyday life easier. One of the most significant benefits that dental implants provide is preserving the structure of your bone.
Your teeth act as anchors to maintain the bone levels of your jaw. When you lose a tooth, your bone may begin to recede and deteriorate in the area of your missing tooth. Because implants are rooted in your bone, just like your natural teeth, they can help prevent bone loss and provide stability to the rest of your bite.
