San Francisco dentist explains the costs of not replacing your missing teeth with dental implants

Teeth implant san francisco

Losing a tooth is a dental situation that many adults face at some point in their lives. Whether it’s after an accident or trauma to the mouth, or caused by tooth decay or gum disease, our adult teeth are not always permanent. Dr. Leo Arellano in San Francisco understands that the loss of a tooth can be overwhelming, especially if it’s a tooth that’s visible when you smile. It’s important to talk to your dentist about replacement options that will help keep your mouth healthy and your smile bright.

Do I need to replace my tooth?

To understand the importance of replacing a tooth, you must first know that your teeth and gums work together as a team to give you a happy and healthy smile. When a tooth is lost, the bone structure around that tooth begins to deteriorate because it’s no longer being stimulated. Over time, the jawbone will start to shrink, surrounding teeth may loosen, and the gums will become vulnerable to disease. Ultimately, the cost of not addressing a missing tooth could be far greater than the investment into a replacing tooth.

What are my replacement tooth options?

There are several ways that you can replace a missing tooth, including dentures, bridges, and dental implants. Many patients find that dental implants are the best choice because they are the most permanent solution. While other options provide a new tooth, the dental implant also provides a new tooth root. This gives added stability, prevents the deterioration of the jawbone, and keeps other teeth from shifting out of place. Further, dental implants provide the most natural looking appearance and gives patients the confidence to smile brightly, speak clearly, and eat their favorite foods.

Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth. For more information, call 415-881-4343.

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.
