Millions of Americans are missing at least some of their adult teeth (if not all of them) – with many having to go through each day without smiling simply because they are embarrassed about the gaps in their teeth.
Sure, dentures offer some relief to individuals that have lost their teeth in the past, but there’s a lot of headaches and hassles that dentures bring to the table, not to mention the fact that they are anything but “permanent” and usually a pain to take care of.
That’s why the experts here at California Oral and Facial Surgery so frequently recommend dental implants over dentures in almost all situations.
Natural Look and Feel
One reason we recommend implants is because dental implants look and feel just like the “real thing” in a way that traditional dentures just can’t.
Whether you’re looking to replace just one tooth, a couple of teeth throughout your smile, or all of your teeth completely, dental implants are first anchored directly into your jawbone with permanent implants secured on top of those anchors. You’ll be able to bite, smile, and talk just like you do with your real teeth.
Another huge benefit that dental implants have to offer is that they are a permanent solution in a way that dentures aren’t.
You aren’t going to have to pop your dental implants out each night, or have to pop them out to clean them. There is also no worry about “gluing” them into position each day for the rest of your life.
Dental implants are securely anchored into your jawbone just like your regular teeth are, giving you a 100% permanent solution that immediately upgrades your smile.
Supports Good Jaw Bone Health
Lastly, properly secured dental implants are going to be screwed directly into your jawbone. This anchor is going to act just like the roots of your teeth would have, stimulating bone growth in your jaw and protecting you from bone loss, too.
This dramatically improves your overall oral health, secures your “face shape” from changing the way that bone loss can alter it, and generally helps you protect your smile going forward.

Are dental implants expensive?
Dental implants are cutting-edge technology in the oral care world for sure but they are also a lot less expensive today than they were when they were first made available. It’s not hard to find dental implants to fit every budget imaginable, and the odds are very good that you’ll be able to utilize dental implants without having to spend a mountain of money along the way.
Are dental implants right for me?
It’s hard to imagine any situation, whether your teeth were knocked out, extracted, or simply decayed beyond repair, that dental implants won’t work to restore and refresh your smile.
