Dental Implants for Missing a Tooth or Teeth
Missing a Tooth or Teeth From Trauma
Life can come at you quick, and sometimes the tricky travails we must traverse have sudden and unforeseen consequence. You are out playing basketball with friends, and an unexpected elbow suddenly unveils a vexing void where your front tooth used to reside. You are taking a bike ride to the beach when a bump in the boulevard suddenly introduces you face first to the unwelcoming embrace of hard concrete. You are taking a jovial jaunt down the block when your foot catches on a crack. These kind of traumatic events can suddenly carve an unwelcome chasm right in the middle of your bright and beautiful smile, and the Dental Implant Experts can get your grin glowing again.
Missing a Tooth or Teeth From Dental Disease
Trauma is usually the first thing that comes to mind when you think of ways to lose teeth, but in reality gum disease is the most common cause of missing teeth. Periodontal disease is an infection of the areas around a tooth, leading to bone loss and eventually losing the tooth itself. If this is the case, it is essential to not only replace the missing tooth with a dental implant, but also to repair the damaged and infected gum and tissue to make sure the periodontal disease does not spread further. The Dental Implant Experts in San Diego are unique in that they have dentists who specialize in both gum disease and dental implants right on site. If you suffer from periodontal disease and need a dental implant, the Dental Implant Experts are the place to go.
Missing a Tooth or Teeth from Congenital Absence
Sometimes, a missing tooth can occur because of genetics. It is not uncommon to have a congenital absence, which means that after someone loses a baby tooth no adult tooth popped up in its place. This occurs through no fault of the patient but can be swiftly remedied with some help from the Dental Implant Experts.
Dental implants for Damaged Tooth or Teeth
Our teeth are pretty tough cookies, but sometimes issues crop up that cause irrevocable damage to the tooth and make it impossible to save. A damaged tooth usually makes its presence know, combining blinding pain and sensitivity with some visual signs of damage. A variety of issues can damage your tooth to the point of no return, and at this point it will have to be pulled. Once the tooth is pulled, the Dental Implant Experts will have a bright and shiny replacement dental implant ready to go!
Dental implants for Chipped Tooth or Teeth
If you live an active lifestyle, a chipped tooth can sometimes be worn as a badge of honor. Each small chip tells a story of how you battled the odds and emerged a (relatively) unscathed champion. In theory that is all well and good, but then it comes time to smile for a picture. Suddenly, you find yourself embarrassed to show off a mouth full of teeth with more chips in it then a bag of Lays. If that is the case, the Dental Implant Experts have the experience, equipment and enthusiasm you need eradicate any and all chips in your teeth.
