Various restorative dental options are available, but dental implants may provide the most permanent, durable, functional tooth replacement solution.
Restorative Dentistry and Dental Implants
Do you have unhealthy or damaged teeth? Maybe they’re discolored, maybe they need an extraction, or perhaps they’re even loose. If you don’t like the shape of them, or you’ve had trouble with the way they function when you bite, you might want to have something done about it. And you can.
Numerous restorative dental options are available that can improve or replace your existing teeth if they have issues. For example, if you have decayed teeth or teeth that are broken or cracked, Dr. Valle and staff can restore the tooth to as healthy a state as possible, then cap it with a veneer, crown, or bridge. The prosthetic cap will improve the tooth’s shape if it is too small and the color.
Dentures can replace missing teeth and provide a generally inexpensive, functional solution. But dentures don’t function as well as your natural teeth, and you may not like the way they feel in your mouth. They’re removable for when you clean them or sleep, but this means they can come loose when you’re speaking and chewing.
These options are not extremely invasive and may be less expensive than more permanent options. But you may prefer a solution that lasts a long time and functions more like your natural teeth.
Dental implants answer many of the drawbacks of alternative restorative dental solutions. They function exactly like your natural teeth and are just as durable and strong. You can brush them and even floss around them like a natural tooth, but their titanium construction means they won’t decay as natural teeth will.
They tie into your jawbone through the gum just like a natural tooth root, so you don’t have to worry about them coming loose or losing them.
They may be more expensive and invasive than alternative options. They generally require extracting the old tooth and a surgical procedure that implants the titanium rod in place. This process can take months, allowing time for your mouth to heal each step of the way. But as long as you take good care of them, implants can last a lifetime.
We cap the titanium rod with a crown. We sculpt the crown to match the natural size and color of the rest of your teeth. So dental implants feel natural, function like real teeth, and look great. They update and enhance your smile like it is brand-new.
