If you’re looking for a solution for your missing teeth, you should consider getting dental implants. The first step is to have a consultation with a Pomona dental implants specialist like our expert, Jonathan Tiger, DMD. During the consultation, our professional dentist will evaluate you to determine if you’re a candidate for implants. If so, he will discuss the dental implant procedure with you and will take the time to answer your questions.
Dental implants are the preferred treatment for missing teeth over dentures and partial dentures. Unlike traditional treatments (dentures and fixed bridges) that rest on the gums or use surrounding teeth to act as anchors, dental implants are anchored into the jawbone. Therefore, they’re stationary. Teeth placed through a dental implant procedure don’t slide out of place and look and feel like natural teeth. Dental implants have a high success rate and are a permanent teeth replacement solution. Traditional teeth replacement solutions have certain complications that dental implants don’t. Dentures, especially the ones located on the upper jaw, can interfere with one’s speaking. They can also drastically affect the way one eats, tastes, chews and digests food because the dentures are so loosely attached to the jaw and one cannot get a strong enough bite. Since Pomona dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth, they allow for proper digestion, eating, tasting food and make eating enjoyable. One of the biggest problems with dentures is they accelerate bone loss in the jaw where teeth are missing. Bone loss impacts the facial structure and can alter how the dentures fit. This problem does not occur with dental implants.
