Lost or missing permanent teeth can cause unattractive gaps in your smile and complicate your daily life by making it more challenging for you to speak, or to bite into food and chew. This is why it is so important to reestablish a complete and functional smile. For patients who have lost a tooth, there are a number of effective treatment options available, including dental bridges, partial or full dentures and dental implants. The most advanced option in care today is a dental implant. A dental implant works to replicate both the form and function of the original tooth, down to the very root. At Contemporary Dental, we pride ourselves on providing a comprehensive range of dental services to meet all your dental needs, including San Mateo dental implants.
When a missing tooth is not replaced, there is risk of the adjacent teeth shifting and causing what is called a “collapsed bite.” What’s more, the natural contours of the face may appear sunken or sagging where the tooth is lost, because the bone begins to naturally resorb without the stimulation of a tooth and its roots in place. A dental implant is a small surgical post placed into the jawbone, which acts in much the same way as the root of your own tooth. Once placed, our premium San Mateo dental implants will integrate with the jaw and continue to stimulate the bone in much the same way as the root of your own tooth to prevent any shrinkage. Single dental implants can support dental crowns, while multiple implants can support dental bridges or provide added stability to a removable denture. At Contemporary Dental, we’re here to meet all your implant dentistry needs.
Along with our top-quality San Mateo dental implants, Contemporary Dental Offers a comprehensive menu of dental services designed to meet the needs of every member of your family.
