One of the worst things that can happen to us as we get older is losing some of our teeth. Unfortunately, “it” happens, and it happens to most of us. It can also happen at any age. There is no rhyme nor reason to it (apart from a small percentage of people who don’t clean their teeth properly, but that is not the case with most of us).
There is an unfortunate side effect of losing teeth and that is that it has a direct effect on how we chew our food. This is not so bad if the missing teeth are in the back of the mouth, but when it happens with teeth at the front it can and does have a direct effect on our smile. Many people who lose teeth put their hands over their mouth every time they hear a joke and laugh out loud, or any other time that they smile: it has a dreadful effect on one’s self-confidence.
Of course, in years gone by you would go to the dentist, who would do the best he could by fitting you up with some dentures – but that would be the best he could do. That, or perhaps installing a bridge, which means cutting down two perfectly good teeth on either side of the missing one.
Today, We Have Arrived In The 21st Century
However, today we have arrived in the 21st century and we now have dental implants. These work in exactly the same way as your original tooth or teeth did, and don’t involve gluing dentures into your mouth or destroying nearby teeth. At San Francisco Dental Implant Center we are the leading Bay Area dental implant specialists, and on a good day we are only half an hour’s drive from Oakland.
Dental implants restore your ability to eat any foods that you wish, including hard things such as nuts, and above all will restore your confidence totally because – unless you tell them – your friends and family will never know that you have them.
This why it is well worth the trip over the Bay from Oakland to see the Bay Area dental implant specialist, Dr Rabinovich, at San Francisco Dental Implant Center (the name’s a bit of a giveaway, isn’t it?).
No, dental implants are not “cheap” but then the best never is. However, as the foremost Bay Area dental implant specialists we believe that nothing should stand in the way of you having the best. That is why we accept all the major insurance companies and also have a very wide choice of finance options that will suit every pocket.
