Why should you settle for an incomplete smile? When you have one or more teeth that have been lost, you may feel self-conscious. In addition, the other teeth on your jaw will often shift. That can cause you discomfort. It can even throw your jaws out of alignment. Even your chewing and subsequently your digestion may be negatively affected by missing teeth. The solution is our dental implant in Norwalk CA. Let us help you to learn if you’re a good candidate for this revolutionary procedure.
Couldn’t you just get a fixed bridge or removable partial dentures? Sure you could. But they don’t replace the entire tooth, including the root. However beneficial they are, there are drawbacks to them, which include losing enamel from surrounding teeth or the possibility of your replacement teeth sliding around on you when you chew or speak, leaving you less than fully confident. Our dental implant in Norwalk CA is made of two key parts. A titanium post is surgically placed in your jaw, standing in for your old tooth’s root. And then a tooth-colored crown is cemented to the top of it, allowing you to enjoy the advantages of a new tooth that looks, feels, and acts like a natural one. When you come in, our implant dentist will test your jaw bone to make sure that it’s strong and thick enough to support the post. That is the most important qualification. If, however, your jaw bone makes you ineligible, you can have bone grafting done, which will make sure you can still have our dental implant in Norwalk CA. Beyond that, your gums will need to be basically healthy. And risk factors like diabetes and smoking may also affect whether you qualify.
All you have to do is book an appointment to come to our office and have an examination and consultation. It’s the first step toward getting a new dental implant to restore your full smile.
