Can dental implants help with bone loss?

Dental Implants With Bone Loss in San Carlos CA area

Dental implants are popular solutions for patients who struggle with tooth loss in San Carlos, California, and the surrounding cities of Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Cupertino, and Foster City. Restoring the smile after tooth loss is critical to maintaining proper alignment of the smile, avoiding substantial bone loss, and restoring function. Many patients choose dental implants because they typically have several benefits, and they will find that it might be a viable solution when speaking to the team at Peninsula Dental Implant Center.

How do dental implants work?

Dr. Shivani Gupta finds the best way to describe dental implants is as a tooth root replacement. These posts are made of a biocompatible metal like titanium that creates a foundation for a dental restoration like a crown, bridge, or full denture. The dental implant fuses to the jawbone underneath it through osseointegration to ensure proper stability and strength. Dental implants are used to replace one, many, or sometimes even all of the teeth in the dental arch, depending on how the dental implant is restored. Restorations may need to be replaced with time, but the implant itself is often in place for a lifetime with appropriate and regular dental care.

Do dental implants maintain natural bone and help with bone loss?

Absolutely! In fact, this is what makes dental implants a straightforward choice for many of our patients who visit us at Peninsula Dental Implant Center. When the implant is surgically placed into the bone of the jaw, it then stimulates the growth of bone around it. This process, which is referred to as osseointegration, is a popular way for many of our patients to achieve permanent tooth replacement, thanks to the foundation the bone provides. Patients who have considered traditional full dentures may have been warned about the consequences of these restorations, which can allow bone loss to occur and result in a “sunken” appearance of the mouth, chin, and jaw area over time. With dental implants, patients maintain this bone and the contours of the face without any changes.
