There are many solutions available to patients who are missing one or more natural teeth from their smiles. It is important that patients in the San Carlos, CA area work with a dental center that offers the most desirable treatment options, including dental implants. But many patients ask our dentist, Dr. Shivani Gupta, are dental implants safe?
Dental implants are safe to use for tooth replacement
Fortunately, the team at Peninsula Dental Implant Center takes great pride in offering not only effective treatments but safe ones. Dental implants are completely safe to use for replacing missing teeth. They are made of a metal called titanium, which is commonly used for implants and replacements throughout the body. Titanium is biocompatible and does not break down, making it the perfect material for dental implants. For patients, who are allergic to Titanium, metal free implants, made of another biocompatible material, Zirconia have recently become available.
What are the benefits of placing dental implants?
Dental implants are a highly desirable option for many of our patients because of their longevity. With proper care, patients can enjoy their implants for life. Additionally, dental implants work to maintain the natural bone of the jaw, avoiding the look of a “sunken in” jaw often caused by long-term use of full dentures. Dental implants use this bone to support and stabilize the foundation of the implant before it is restored over the abutment. This allows patients to enjoy their favorite foods without worry! Additionally, patients will find that their dental implants don’t require any extra care or attention when compared to the rest of their smiles, making them simple to maintain and easy to care for!
