You're nervous about your lunch meeting with a new client. Meeting at a restaurant means you'll have to navigate ordering and eating food in front of someone you don't know with your missing tooth. Looks like you'll be having soup again for lunch today!
Tooth loss impacts your life in so many ways. Eating is a challenge, and feeling self-conscious about your smile makes it hard to interact comfortably with other people.
Dental implants in San Jose, CA provide a solution that not only restores your smile but also protects your dental health.
What Is a Tooth Implant?
Tooth implants replace both your tooth and your root, which is the secret to their success. A titanium post is placed into your jawbone and fuses with it naturally over time since it is a biocompatible material. After its healed and integrated with your bone, the implant acts as a root and supports your new crown, which replaces your tooth.
A tooth implant in San Jose is just like having a natural tooth again since it looks, feels, and functions the same way. Better yet, you can brush and floss with ease making your new tooth easy to care for.
The Advantages of Choosing a Tooth Implant
A dental implant offers many advantages for these reasons:
- Dental implants have a 95 percent success rate and offer excellent longevity as they can potentially last for a lifetime
- Because they replace your root, they protect you from the bone loss that occurs with tooth loss
- Your new tooth keeps your surrounding teeth from moving or shifting
- A dental implant can be more cost-effective over time than an option that you would have to replace
