Dentist in Sacramento CA
When you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you should contact us at our dental practice, Upen J Patel, DDS. Our implant dentist in Sacramento CA
, Dr. Upen J. Patel, will be able to provide you with dental implants to give you a fully-restored, attractive and comfortable smile.
If you have missing teeth it is very important that they are replaced in order to prevent additional dental problems from occurring. Adjacent teeth will often try to move over to fill in the gap left by the missing teeth. Additionally, if a tooth root is missing, the jawbone will atrophy and you will lose your youthful appearance. However, when your teeth are replaced by our dentist in Sacramento CA
using dental implants, these dental problems are completely avoided. Our dentist will first want to determine that your jawbone is thick enough and healthy enough to withstand the dental implant procedure. Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for dental implants, he will surgically insert a titanium dental implant root into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Dental implants are so popular at our dental practice because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. Dental implants are also used to anchor dentures, and are particularly effective in anchoring lower dentures that may shift when you talk or chew. Once the jawbone has fully healed and the dental implant has completely fused so the jawbone, our dentist will provide you with a porcelain crown and permanently attach it to the dental implant root. At this point, your dental implants will be complete and you will be able to once again speak, smile, and eat in total confidence, and without worrying that the dental implants will slip and embarrass or hurt you in any way.
