By the time you reach your senior years, you may have lost one or more teeth to decay or gum disease. Restoring those teeth is a given. How you restore them is up to you. Many seniors choose dental implants to restore their smile due to their durability, longevity, and natural-looking appearance. You can learn more about dental implant restorations for seniors in the San Marcos, California areas at Shadowridge Dental Group.
Restoring your teeth with implants can make a marked difference to your smile and the quality of your life. Unlike traditional dentures, which are prone to slipping or shifting when you eat or speak, implants are firmly embedded into your jaw and become a permanent structure to support prosthetic teeth.
Single implants can restore one or several teeth throughout your mouth by using one implant per tooth and topping each with a porcelain crown. Your San Marcos, California dentists may recommend an implant-supported bridge for two or more consecutive missing teeth. Your prosthetics are permanently attached to implants to keep them from shifting.
All-on-4 implants can comfortably restore a full arch of missing teeth with implant-supported dentures. The implants are placed strategically in your jaw to bear the brunt of biting and chewing. Once the healing is complete, you will make an appointment with our dentists for the placement of natural-looking dentures. You can eat, laugh, and talk without worrying about your teeth shifting. Having stable, attractive prosthetics will give you the confidence to laugh and smile again.
