Our top priorities with dental implants are that they will bring you dental health, overall physical health, confidence, improved quality of life, and more. We offer implants at our local dentist office in Brentwood when they’ll give you these and other advantages.
Here at Brentwood Dental Group, you can go through the whole tooth implant process and all the restorative dentistry steps in one convenient location: getting your implant abutment, any needed jaw bone graft, and the types of dental implants you want.
You can receive new teeth here, along with these 10 other benefits:
1. Looks and Works Like a Natural Tooth
When your dental implant procedure is complete, you’ll be able to chew any type of food with your new tooth, and it will look as good as new. We can also craft a dental bridge or implant-supported dentures to look real, including gum-like features.
2. Stays Stable for a Lifetime
After your implant surgery and recovery time, you can expect to keep your dental implant for the rest of your life. It’s made with incredibly strong titanium and naturally bonded to the jawbone so it’s practically like a natural tooth root.
3. Protects Your Other Teeth
When you lose a tooth, the teeth around it can naturally drift toward the empty socket, throwing off the shape of your dental arch. When we put a new tooth implant in place, though, it stabilizes the teeth around it—supporting a nice strong set of teeth.
4. Improves the Jaw
As your implant root bonds with your jawbone, the bone will naturally thicken. The implant stimulates it to create new cells, which strengthens it for the long-term. A bone graft surgery can strengthen the jaw, even making the jawline look more attractive, in some cases.
5. Leaves Nearby Teeth Unchanged
A dental bridge—a way to replace a tooth or a few teeth in a row—requires that nearby teeth be worn down to act as anchors for the bridge. But dental implants are rooted directly in the jawbone, leaving nearby teeth alone.
6. Cleans Easily
Dental cleaning and preventive dentistry are simple and natural with teeth implants. You’ll just brush, floss, and visit the dental hygienist twice a year. With removable dentures, you can also pop them out quickly and brush your gums.
7. Allows Food Variety
With stable dental implants, you’ll be able to eat a wide variety of nutritious and delicious foods, even if they are chewy, crunchy, or sticky. With traditional dentures, some foods are a struggle, but not with implant-supported dentures, bridges, or single tooth implants.
8. Feels Comfortable
Some patients feel discomfort from traditional dentures that move against their gums or even pop out of place at times. This can make eating and conversing feel bad. In contrast, fixed dentures attached to implants are as stable as natural teeth.
9. Improves Speech
If an empty tooth socket has changed the sound of your speech, a new tooth can make it easier to talk again. This effect can happen almost instantly when we finish your implant surgery and place a temporary crown in the socket.
10. Provides Personalized Solutions
A dental implant can be used in a variety of tooth replacement options. We can make your tooth restoration in the color and material you want. You can get individual tooth implants or a dental bridge or dentures—either fixed or removable. We’ll help you decide.
