Whether you’re considering dental implants in Newport Beach or nearby, Dr. Alfano produces high-quality treatments from start to finish. Amongst the various tooth-replacement options, dental implants reign superior in aesthetics, longevity, and reliability. So, what are the benefits of dental implants? Our patients love them for many reasons, including they:
While dentures are a removable tooth-replacement option that can shift around in your mouth as you go about your daily activities, Dr. Alfano secures dental implants in your jawbone for unprecedented permanence.
Dental implants are the most durable and stable tooth-replacement option-matching your natural teeth. As for aesthetics, dental implants are topped with a beautiful ceramic crown that is designed from impressions of your natural teeth so that the shape, size, and color fit flawlessly with your smile.
Typically, people who wear dentures resort to eating soft foods, but dental implants can withstand the bite force and pressure that you use to chew your food. The strength of implants means that you can eat your favorite foods without worrying about pain, food getting stuck, or your teeth falling out.
Missing even one tooth can cause severe complications. For example, when you lose a tooth, your body will stop sending much-needed nutrients to that area of the jawbone, resulting in significant bone loss. Dental implants fill the void in your jawbone and encourage healthy bone growth.
Furthermore, suffering from tooth loss can cause your face to sag or look sunken. Dental implants allow you to retain the shape of your face, producing a younger and healthier appearance.
By the end of treatment, our dental implants are nearly indifferentiable when compared to your natural teeth. However, that doesn’t just apply to the aesthetics—our dental crowns are near perfect matches of your teeth as well. The shape of our crowns means that dental implants restore your speech to how it was before tooth loss.
Dental implants are one of the only restorations that don’t require extra maintenance. As long as you brush twice a day, floss after meals, and visit Dr. Alfano for biannual checkups, your implant could last longer than your natural teeth.
When you receive a dental implant from Dr. Alfano, you’re securing the most stable tooth-replacement option that the industry offers. The reason that dental implants produce such stability is that it utilizes biocompatible titanium alloys to create the implant fixture. The fixture is the part of the implant that Dr. Alfano secures in your jawbone, and since it’s made from one of the strongest metals available, there’s a much higher success rate. Unlike dentures, you’ll never have to worry about the implant moving out of place while you talk, eat, or laugh.
