Gap-Tooth Smiles Aren’t Quite As Adorable Anymore

dental implant cost Daly City

Have you lost teeth? It’s a lot different than when you lost your baby teeth way back in the day. Unfortunately, adult teeth don’t grow back. But with a dental implant from Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA, it might seem like a missing tooth has.

A dental implant is a titanium post that is permanently placed in the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. Implants can hold a single replacement tooth or  anchor a full dental arch.

The success of a dental implant hinges on the titanium post attaching to the bone. And this is the real beauty of it: titanium has a unique ability to fuse, or join, with bone. There’s actually a word for this, “osteophilic,” which means “bone loving.” This property has made titanium the material of choice for dental implants, as well as for artificial joints like knees.

Dental implants have a success rate that is greater than ninety percent. The most common reason for implant failure is infection. That makes it critical to keep a dental implant clean. Plaque can build up on implant crowns the same way it does on teeth, so it is up to the patient to brush and floss every day, just like with natural teeth.

With dental implants from Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA, no one has to live with one or more missing teeth. Patients from Daly City, Milpitas, and Saratoga also come to us for restorative dentistry and dental implants, and so much more. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
