Whether you are missing one tooth or the majority of your teeth, dental implants are a wonderful option to restore your smile to its full vibrancy and functionality. Our restorative dentist Dr. Tucker and the Redding Dental Arts team are happy to offer dental implants, which act as permanent replacements for the roots of the missing teeth by being affixed to your jaw and allowing dentures to snap in place to function just like natural teeth. This method of replacement will give you confidence in your smile and the functionality that you desire.
No longer will you need to be shy about your smile or hesitant to eat dense or crunchy foods. What’s more, implant treatment can avoid painful or costly problems in the future such as tissue or bone loss, or unwanted structural changes to your face.
Dentures or Implants?
Dental implants are an increasingly popular alternative to traditional removable dentures for several reasons:
- Implants are permanent and nearly replicate missing natural teeth, as opposed to dentures which are removable and need to be resized as the shape of the face and mouth shift over time.
- Implants are firmly anchored into the jawbone, allowing natural chewing and talking whereas dentures affect speech and tend to slip around.
- Upkeep of implants is identical to that of normal teeth – brushing, flossing, using mouthwash and visiting the dentist regularly. Dentures require a more involved daily cleaning process.
Since dental implants have only recently begun gaining popularity, not every dentist is properly trained to perform the procedure. Dr. Tucker has received extensive training and education and is very experienced with placing dental implants.
