Restore Tooth Utility with Dental Implants in Encinitas, CA

Let McElroy Smiles By Design Put a Smile on Your Face

Thanks to technological advancements in modern dentistry, you can now painlessly restore the natural presentation and utility of a lost tooth or teeth with dental implants. Dental implants are artificial teeth that look and function just like your natural teeth. They can be used to take the place of a single tooth, multiple teeth, or your entire upper or lower set of teeth. A dental implant can also be used to anchor porcelain crowns, porcelain bridges, or non-slip dentures. Our dentist is highly experienced in restoring the function and appearance of teeth with dental implants in Encinitas, CA.

Who Can Benefit from Dental Implants?

Implants are strong, secure, and last for years. People who may benefit from dental implants include:

  • People with loose dentures or partials – Patients who have lost all of their teeth and wear dentures can find it hard to chew healthy foods and as a result, find it difficult to maintain good nutrition. By placing just a few implants, it allows the patient to chew easier and more naturally. Another benefit is not having to worry about dentures sliding or making noises!
  • Athletes (of all ages!) – If you or a loved one has sustained an accident or tooth injury, you can restore your smile’s function and appearance with dental implants. This works as an alternative to a dental bridge, which would require grinding down the adjacent healthy teeth to support the bridge.
  • Teens who are missing their eye teeth (canines) – Frequently, our dentist sees teen patients with wide gaps on each side of their smile where their eye teeth are meant to be. In the past, dentists used braces to shift these teeth together, affected their occlusion (bite) for life. Today, we instead have an dentist move these teeth further apart and have a dentist place dental implants in those gaps. The implants are typically placed after the young adult’s mouth and teeth have completely matured. As a result, the young person’s smile not only looks completely normal but their teeth function and mesh together perfectly.
