How dental implants can save your smile
You’ve had a tooth removed and now you’re wondering how to replace it. It’s easy to imagine you will never smile again. Will you have to live with an incomplete, gapped smile? Dr. Charles E. Scholler and Dr. Daniel Cronk in Somis, CA want you to know a lost tooth isn’t the end of your smile! It’s time to consider a dental implant to replace your lost tooth and save your smile.
Thanks to the modern technology of dental implants, you don’t have to settle for conventional tooth replacement options like bridgework, partials or a denture. A dental implant is a much better solution for many reasons. Drs. Scholler and Cronk want you to know when you choose a dental implant, you can count on:
- Beauty, because dental implant crowns are made of translucent porcelain
- A natural appearance, because they look just like your teeth, only better
- Permanence, because your implants are locked in place by bone
- Convenience, because you clean them just like natural teeth
- Satisfaction, because you can eat the foods you want
- A high success rate, over 95 percent, the highest of any surgical implant!
When you choose a dental implant placed by your Somis dentists, you have chosen a conservative treatment. Unlike bridgework, Drs. Scholler and Cronk don’t have to prepare the teeth around the implant, only the implant area. Because they are made of porcelain, dental implants resist staining and remain beautifully white and sparkling. They also don’t ever decay!
A huge benefit to dental implants is they help you retain a youthful face, by conserving the bone in your jaw. This gives you a firm jawline and more youthful facial contours. In contrast, dental appliances like dentures can put pressure on your jaw, causing your bone to disappear, a process called resorption. Over time, your face will begin to sag. Dental implants can help you avoid bone loss and remain looking younger.
A lost tooth isn’t the end of your smile. It’s time to invest in saving your smile with dental implants. It’s time to call Dr. Charles E. Scholler and Dr. Daniel Cronk in Somis, CA. Get your full, beautiful smile back with dental implants by calling today!
