Tooth loss impacts your life in many ways that most of us take for granted, especially the loss of multiple teeth.
First, you are often not able to comfortably enjoy many of the foods you love. Next, you may feel embarrassed or self-conscious about your interactions with other people due to the appearance of your smile.
The good news is that there are excellent solutions for permanently restoring your smile, but which one is right for you? Here's what you need to know about dentures and dental implants in Vallejo, CA.
Dentures are typically a removable appliance that your dentist designs to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. Now, you may be envisioning the dentures that your parents or grandparents wore that didn't look natural or didn't fit well. You should know that we design today's dentures with you in mind. Your dentist bases the fit on your facial structure and plans aesthetics with your skin tone in mind. Today's dentures both look and feel more like your natural teeth than ever before.
If you are living with multiple compromised or lost teeth, it may be time to consider dentures in Vallejo as an option for reclaiming your smile and your dental health.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are the gold standard in tooth replacement, mainly because they act just like a natural tooth by replacing your root as well as the crown of your tooth. Dental implants are ideal for replacing a single missing tooth, but they can also support appliances like a dental bridge or denture to replace multiple missing teeth.
When you choose dental implants in Vallejo to restore your smile, your dentist will place them directly into your bone, where they fuse and integrate as part of your dental anatomy, just like your root. Then they will attach your new tooth or crown to the implant. Crowns are made of ceramic porcelain, which is customized to match your teeth and complement your smile.
If you are considering dentures, your dentist can use dental implants to secure your denture and provide a more stable fit.
