Great Benefits of Titanium Dental Implants
Titanium dental implants offer many benefits compared to other tooth replacement options. Dr. Frame, dentist in Santa Clara, considers dental implants the standard in tooth replacement and may recommend them if you are missing one or more teeth.
One of the primary benefits of dental implants is that they are long lasting. Titanium implants are designed to fuse with the jawbone for a restoration that feels just like your own tooth. They have an extremely high success rate, and complications are rare. They do not decay and are not affected by oral acidity, which means that they can last many years.
Titanium dental implants are also attractive. They can support dental crowns for a natural look or dental bridges or dentures for durable, sturdy replacement for some or all of your natural teeth. Other teeth will not be affected by the placement of implants, and they can even protect your other teeth from shifting or tooth-loss related damage.
Keeping your dental implants clean and your smile healthy is as simple as brushing, flossing and visiting our dentist regularly for cleanings and exams. You will not need any special tools or complicated procedures, and you can continue to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet.
You may be a candidate for titanium dental implants if you have good oral health, are healthy enough to undergo dental surgery and have sufficient bone density. Some patients may require other procedures to ensure a successful implant procedure. Contact Dr. Frame, expert in dental implants in Santa Clara, today to learn more or to schedule your consultation.
