Over the last few years, dental implants have become a regular part of most dental practices, and it's easy to see why. They attractively and permanently replace a missing natural tooth in its entirety, making life easier for both dentists and patients. At Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, Dr. John Stockdale regularly recommends dental implants for his patients. Here are a few reasons why:

You've lost a permanent tooth.

Most American adults are missing at least one permanent tooth by the time they're 30 years old. Although it's common, it's something that needs to be remedied by your Rancho Cucamonga dentist as soon as possible. It's important to replace any missing teeth with dental implants as soon as you can in order to prevent deterioration of the jawbone and shifting of the remaining natural teeth.

You need a tooth extracted.

If an accident has occurred or a previous dental restoration (such as a root canal) has failed, your Rancho Cucamonga dentist might need to extract, or pull, the affected tooth. Filling that empty space with a dental implant is highly recommended in order to keep the rest of your teeth healthy. In some cases, the post of an implant can be placed the same day as the tooth is extracted; X-rays will determine if you're a candidate.

You need dentures.

You heard right: if you need dentures, but don't want to deal with the hassle of removing them, implant-supported dentures could be in your future. Instead of relying on denture paste and suction, both the upper and lower denture plates can be attached to a series of implants - typically four on each - and held in firmly in place. Talk to Dr. Stockdale to find out if this type of denture solution is right for you.
