Dental implants are the perfect way to replace missing teeth in the 21st century. They work in exactly the same way that your original tooth or teeth did, so you can say goodbye to dentures, bridges, and other procedures.

Dentures, in particular, have many disadvantages. They can slip and slide about in the mouth when you are eating, and they have been known to fall out when a wearer throws his or her head back and laughs at a joke – with all the embarrassment that causes. Dentures that move about can also cause you speech difficulties. You still have to be very careful what you eat, and you certainly can’t eat things such as nuts. Furthermore, most denture wearers notice that their food doesn’t taste the same. Then there is the messy and sticky business of using denture adhesives. You also have to take them out and put them in a glass of disinfectant overnight. In addition, prolonged wearing of dentures can lead to the jawbone shrinking.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges have an effect on the teeth on either side of the bridge as they have to be cut down in order to hold the bridge in place. If the bridge and crown are not fitted correctly, there is the risk of decay if bacteria and plaque get underneath them. In some cases, the abutment teeth on either side that are holding the bridge may not be strong enough to do so and may collapse, which can actually make the original situation worse.

The best replacement teeth are without a shadow of a doubt dental implants and if you are considering dental implants in downtown San Francisco it is time to make an appointment with one of our expert oral and maxillofacial surgeons to discuss your various options. Our dental implant specialist is happy to provide an initial consult when he can assess whether you are a candidate for dental implants (most people are) and answer all your questions, of which you will no doubt have many.
