Is your smile marred by gaps and spaces? Are there permanent teeth missing from your smile? For patients who wish to restore the beauty and functionality of their smile, Dr. Bryce Darden may recommend dental implants in Glendora, California. Dental implants are made of a titanium post and a restoration. The titanium post is surgically placed in the jawbone, where it serves as replacement tooth roots. The restoration, which can be a dental crown, dental bridge, or dentures, is anchored to the top of the post.
Dental implants have many advantages. They improve the appearance of your smile, as they look like your natural teeth. They give you back your smile and improve your confidence. The implant post is designed to fuse with your jawbone, so implants become a permanent part of your smile. Dental implants restore your ability to eat and speak properly. Implants are very durable and will last many years, or even a lifetime. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants do not require tooth reduction. Because there is no tooth structure lost, implants improve your long-term oral health.
