Dental implants offer some unique advantages over other tooth replacement options.

No one ever expects to lose a permanent tooth but it happens to millions of Americans. When this happens, our Stockton, CA, dentist Dr. Alexander Pritsky and Dr. Roger Lang can provide dental implants, a lifelong solution to replacing your missing tooth or teeth. Many people are turning to our clinical dental practice for implants, and you could be an ideal candidate, too.

What is a dental implant?

An implant is a false tooth that replaces the entirety of a tooth, from the crown to the roots. A dental implant is placed into the jawbone by our Stockton, CA, implant dentists to anchor a dental crown into place. Once the implant fuses together with bone and tissue you won’t have to worry about the tooth wiggling or moving around in your mouth; it will stay as firmly in place as your healthy, natural teeth.

If you need to replace multiple teeth, our implant specialists can also place multiple implants along the jawbone to support partial or full dentures.

What are the advantages of a dental implant?

Most healthy adults who come into our office for implants are ideal candidates for this lifelong tooth replacement. Due to the uniqueness of this restoration, you better believe that it offers some one-of-a-kind benefits including,

  • Supporting the muscles of the face and preventing premature sagging and other changes to the shape and structure of the face
  • Preserving the jawbone and stimulating new bone cells to prevent tooth loss-related bone loss
  • A long-term restoration that functions, looks and even feels exactly like a real tooth
  • A false tooth that fully restores chewing, biting and speaking
  • A restoration that doesn’t require special treatment or products (you can simply care for it like you do your natural teeth)
  • Filling gaps in your smile to prevent your natural teeth from drifting into these open gaps and causing misalignments
