Before the advent of modern preventive dentistry, tooth loss was considered a natural part of life, largely to be expected with age. dental implantsAlthough many people are now keeping their natural teeth longer than ever before, there are still many factors that continue to cause some degree of tooth loss for millions of Americans every year, according to the American Dental Association. Even with good oral hygiene habits and regular care from a dentist, illness, accidents and sports injuries can lead to tooth loss. In addition to potentially ruining a smile, missing teeth can also contribute to oral and general health problems.

Dr. John Stockdale, your dentist in Rancho Cucamonga, CA recommends dental implants for qualified adult patients missing anywhere from one to just a few, or even all of their natural teeth.

Smile Restoration with Dental Implants in Rancho Cucamonga, CA

Implants restore missing teeth in two stages. Unlike other methods, which only replace the visible, cosmetic portion of the tooth below the gums, dental implants also restore the root, which helps to preserve and grow healthy new bone tissue. They also securely anchor the cosmetic dental crown in place, making implants the most secure and permanent dental replacement available.

The implants, made of a small, biocompatible titanium screw, are surgically placed in the gums, where they fuse with the surrounding bone tissue. Once the implant has healed, the cosmetic crown is attached, completing the restoration. Implants can be used to restore a single tooth, bridges or an entire set of dentures, with just a few implants. Adults in good overall health with enough oral bone density may qualify for dental implants. Once in place, implants require rigorous oral hygiene care at home and regular follow-up visits with a dentist.
