At least three million Americans have replaced a missing tooth with a dental implant, and that number grows each year. You can restore your smile with a dental implant from Masterworks Dentistry in Bakersfield.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into your jaw. An artificial tooth goes on top of the post. They blend in with the patient’s remaining teeth, and look and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are a long-term tooth restoration.
Dental implants also prevent bone recession, which is common in people who have lost teeth. The titanium post goes where the tooth root used to be, and helps strengthen the bone.
Implants can also be used to anchor dentures, providing a much firmer, more secure fit. Many patients report newfound confidence in themselves, after years of embarrassment caused by missing teeth.
Dental implants are one of the most significant advances in dentistry. To find out more, call Masterworks Dentistry in Bakersfield. Our services include family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
