Over the years, even individuals who have made it a point of maintaining good oral hygiene can suffer tooth loss. Often, individuals may lose teeth due to trauma, such as collisions when playing sports. Gaps in your teeth can cause alignment issues making it difficult and sometimes painful to chew. Even if you brush and floss daily, the chances of harmful bacteria building up increases with misalignment.
One way to correct this issue is with dental implants. If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants can be a great way to prevent structural and misalignment issues. Also, they are an excellent way to deal with issues such as discoloration, cracks, or chipping. If you need dental implants in Yuba City or are just interested in the options available to you, Sacramento Surgical Arts can help.
What Are Dental Implants
Dental implants are artificial teeth. They are made from taking a pressed mold of your mouth so they fit into the area or areas where you are missing teeth. The procedure is a great way to restore not just the look of your smile but the function of your mouth. Since they are customized to fit perfectly into your mouth, they have many benefits, such as:
- A natural look seamlessly blending with your natural teeth
- Simple, easy procedure with low maintenance afterward
- Improved chewing as well as potentially clearer speech
With proper care, meaning regular brushing and flossing as well as check-ups with your dentist, dental implants can last a long time. Some dental implants can last as long as 15 years. However, it still makes sense to avoid needlessly hard, sticky, or acidic foods. The better care you take of your teeth and dental implants, the better they will function, look, and last.
Whenever you notice tooth issues, such as discoloration, cracks, or chipping, you need to visit your dentist. The same is true if you notice issues with your gums. For example, if they are red, swollen, or bleeding, you may need treatment. Speaking with your dentist, you can find out if you are experiencing serious issues. During the examination, your dentist may recommend a cleaning. Afterward, if you are still experiencing issues or if you decide you want to correct long-standing issues such as nicks or gaps in your teeth, dental implants may be an option.
