What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Benefits of dental implants san francisco

Missing teeth can be unsightly. Missing teeth may be in the front of the mouth, which can cause embarrassment, or they can be in the back of the mouth, which can make it difficult to chew food properly. Dental implants are a popular option for individuals missing teeth.

What are the benefits of dental implants over other alternative restorations? Dental implants have a number of advantages over dentures and bridges, which are often considered when patients are determining the best way to replace their missing teeth.

Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. The dental implant is surgically inserted into the gums and jawbone which help provide strength and stability to the implant. It is then capped with a dental crown that is made to match your existing teeth. Friends and family may not even know that you have a false tooth because of the technology that exists to make them as natural-looking as possible.

Unlike bridges, dental implants help protect the integrity of the surrounding teeth. Bridges require adjacent teeth to be filed down and crowned in order to place a bridge, while dental implants are used to replace the missing teeth without making changes or alterations to the teeth around them.

Dental implants are also an un-removable option unlike dentures which need to be removed daily. Dentures require additional care and attention while dental implants act as natural teeth once they have been implanted and crowned.

Also, dental implants can be used to help support dentures. Denture adhesive is not always strong enough to provide comfort for the denture wearer, so dental implants can be used to help dentures “snap” into place. This makes them sturdier and more effective for chewing and talking.

I've been going to Dr. Arellano for about 20 years and I continue because of the excellent care and treatment I get with him and his whole office team. He is both professional and personable.
Recently I had a newer technique of gum surgery/grafting at his office called, "Pinhole Surgical Technique of gum grafting." I personally found this to be much easier to handle than the other style of gum grafting that I received years ago for the other side of my mouth. That worked, it was where part of my roof of my mouth was cut and surgically sewn onto the gum. However, I much prefer the pinhole technique. It was actually the easiest dental work I've had (beyond regular cleaning.) It didn't take too long and it didn't feel uncomfortable getting it done. I was swollen, but I think that happens regardless of what kind of gum grafting is done. I needed ibuprofin for a few days, no major pain. It healed well and just felt easy. I am not a fan of having any work done in my mouth because that's me, but this was the easiest work I've ever had done.
So, if you are debating which kind of surgery to do I personally would recommend the pinhole surgery.

We've gone to Dr Arellano for many years and have never been disappointed with any of the work he's done. Recently my husband broke a tooth and Leo got him in and had the tooth repaired within a few short hours. Service like that is very hard to finds these days. His office staff is fantastic. Nice people you are always glad to see. I would highly recommend Dr Arellano to anyone who is searching for an honest, competent, well trained dentist.
