Unfortunately, unlike some other parts of our bodies, our teeth cannot heal themselves, and losing teeth as an adult can cause embarrassment or even shame. If you lose a tooth due to breakage, or if you need a tooth extracted, you don’t need to worry about what others will think of your smile. At Stadium Dental and Orthodontics, your Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dentist understands the impact that your smile can have on your confidence, and is prepared to help you find a restorative dentistry option that will fit your unique needs. We recognize the importance of a smile you can be proud of and, with our use of advanced technology, we may be able to restore your smile in as little as one visit with same-day dental implants.
New Roots for New Teeth
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically embedded into your jawbone. These posts mimic teeth roots, creating placeholders for your restorations and ensuring that your natural teeth don’t shift and become crooked because you are missing a tooth. Over the course of several months, the posts fuse to your jawbone. However, for this to happen, your jaw must already be healthy and strong enough to support the posts. If your jawbone is healthy enough to not need a bone graft, but not quite healthy enough to support traditional implants, we offer same-day implants. These posts are smaller than the traditional version, but still act as new roots for your new tooth restorations. This option works especially well if you need an extraction, as we can often remove the unhealthy tooth, place your implant, and create and finish the restoration with a same-day dental crown in just one visit! Having implants improves and maintains the overall structure of your smile and encourages your jawbone to remain healthy and support your teeth, making them a smart and lasting solution to your smile worries.
Maintain Good Oral Hygiene
Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they become a lasting part of your mouth structure. Even if a restoration were to break or have an issue, your new titanium roots will stay put, ready to support an updated crown or other restoration. Since implants and restorations mimic natural teeth all the way down to their roots, you shouldn’t need to learn any new oral hygiene practices to keep them healthy and beautiful. Even though crowns can’t get cavities, it is important to brush twice a day and floss once a day, or you may leave your gums at risk for gum disease. It is also always imperative to attend twice- yearly checkups, or as many as Dr. Chakka recommends, to ensure the continued health of your new smile.
