Dental Implants: The Healthiest Restorative Solution for Missing Teeth

Dental Implants: The Healthiest Restorative Solution for Missing Teeth

Living with tooth loss can be difficult and have a negative impact on your health, as well as your quality of life and emotional well-being. While the cosmetic effects of tooth loss and the effects on speech and nutrition are the most obvious, tooth loss creates health challenges below the gumline as well. 

Dental implants are the healthiest restorative solution for missing teeth because they address both the cosmetic and oral health issues created by tooth loss. At the Center for Implant & Esthetic Dentistry, our prosthodontist Dr. Ramin Mahaallati and our team offer dental implants and restorative and cosmetic dentistry services at our office in Beverly Hills, California.

How dental implants fix your smile and improve your oral health

Dental implants are the restoration that most closely matches the design and function of a natural tooth. While most restorations focus on replacing the visible portion of the tooth, implants also replace the root of a missing tooth. Not only does this make implants more secure, but it also prevents the bone tissue surrounding the missing tooth from eroding. 

Bone loss is a natural side effect of tooth loss, but it can increase your risk of gum disease and other oral health problems. In addition to preventing bone loss, implants also help to keep the surrounding teeth stable and don’t require bridgework or adhesives to stay in place.

The process for getting dental implants is more involved and takes longer than other restorations, but once in place, implants feel and function just like natural teeth. They are a long-term solution to tooth loss. That means you can enjoy a healthy diet and don’t have to avoid certain foods or eat a restrictive diet.

Preserving natural teeth is always the best option, but when tooth loss happens, implants are the next best thing.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

The ideal candidate for dental implants is a healthy adult with enough healthy bone tissue to support an implant. Some underlying health conditions may disqualify certain people from getting dental implants. 

While implants have a high success rate, it’s essential to continue to practice good oral hygiene and keep all follow-up appointments to ensure the implants are successful.

Even if you’ve been living with tooth loss and oral health challenges for years, it’s never too late to replace missing teeth and invest in your oral health.
