Our teeth are meant to last a lifetime, and with daily brushing and flossing along with regular cleanings and checkups, they usually can. But sometimes things go wrong, through no one’s fault, and one or more teeth are lost. When that happens, dental implants from Green Dentistry in San Francisco are an ideal solution.
Our dental implants are made from titanium, which is 100% biocompatible with the human body. They are posts inserted into the jaw, where after a few months they completely fuse with the bone. Once that takes place the implant is a solid foundation for one or more artificial teeth.
One implant can support one artificial tooth. Several can support a dental bridge, or a full dental arch.These replacement teeth look and function like natural teeth. Biting and chewing power is virtually normal – to say nothing of a fully restored smile!
Even better is that the titanium implants actually promote the growth of new, healthy jaw bone. One of the consequences of losing a tooth is that the bone begins to atrophy. This is most apparent, in turn, in its effect on the face, which takes on a sunken appearance.
Dental implants can keep that from happening because they mimic the missing tooth root. As you chew on your favorite foods, the implants stimulatie the bone, keeping it healthy.
