When you’re missing one or more of your natural teeth, chewing can be difficult and even painful. Dental implants from Marcos Ortega DDS in San Diego CA are state-of-the-art in tooth replacement.
Dental implants are metallic posts inserted into the jawbone. The posts are usually titanium, which is an ideal material because it is lightweight and fuses with bone so well. One of these posts can support an artificial tooth, while several can support a dental bridge and even a full arch.
One of the many benefits of dental implants is that the prevent bone recession. This is common after tooth loss. The bone recession results in a sagging appearance to your face.
A missing tooth can also result in teeth around the gap to shift in position, affecting your bite.
But one of the biggest benefits of tooth replacement with a dental implant is a restored ability to bite and chew, as well as a restored smile.
