For a patient who is missing one or more permanent teeth, Drs. Afshar and Afshar may recommend dental implants in Cameron Park, California. A dental implant is a restoration that replaces both the missing tooth and its root. A dental implant is made up of a titanium post, which fuses with the jawbone, and a dental restoration, like a dental crown or bridge.

A dental implant can do the following for you and your smile:

– Improve your appearance and self-esteem
– Improve your speech
– Allow you to eat properly
– Improve your comfort
– Improve your oral health
– Provide a durable and long-lasting replacement for a lost tooth

Dental implants are not for everyone. To have dental implants placed, you should have healthy gums and enough jawbone structure to support the implant. In addition, you must be committed to proper oral hygiene and regular dental checkups. There are other things to consider, like whether or not you are a smoker. Talk to our dentists to see if dental implants are right for you.

Care for your dental implants the same way that you care for your other teeth. Brush them twice a day and floss them once a day, along with your natural teeth. Rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash. It is also important to visit Country Club Dental at least twice a year for your professional teeth cleaning.
