It’s important to understand what dental implants can offer you.

Are you currently reading up on the different types of tooth replacement options out there? If so, maybe you’ve liked what you’ve read so far about dental implants. After all, this is truly the only tooth replacement that can last decades and functions just like real teeth. This small metal post might not look like very much when you first check it out, but our San Leandro, CA, dentist Dr. Stephen Moy promises that it can give you back that gorgeous smile that you desire.

How do dental implants work?
To fully understand what this artificial tooth can offer you, it’s first important to understand how it works. Dental implants are small metal posts that our San Leandro, CA, dentist will place into the jaw during minor oral surgery. The implant, over several months, will fuse together with bone and tissue. From there, we can attach a false tooth or multiple teeth on top of the implant.

What are the benefits of dental implants?
If you’re still on the fence as to whether or not to get dental implants here are some of the cool and unique advantages associated with this popular tooth replacement,

  • It looks, feels, and acts just like a real tooth
  • It has an extremely high success rate of up to 98 percent
  • It doesn’t require special care or maintenance, just clean and cares for it like a natural tooth
  • It’s made from titanium, the same material used in NASA space shuttles, so implants are incredibly strong and built to last decades
  • It will stimulate the growth of new bone cells and preserve bone density
  • It will prevent other teeth from shifting into open gaps in your smile
  • It will support the facial muscles to maintain your natural face structure

Tooth loss doesn’t have to be the end all be all to a beautiful smile. You can get a stunning, full smile again after tooth loss, and our San Leandro, CA, the dental team can help with dental implants.
