Tooth loss due to decay or disease is a common problem for many people. The result is usually a loss of confidence as well as adverse changes to the facial structure. Tooth loss also results in serious dental health issues, including gum problems and a deteriorating jaw bone. Thankfully, there is a way to correct tooth loss without using conventional bridges and dentures. The doctors and experienced staff at Canyon Creek Family Dentistry are equipped to provide their patients with dental implants.

Dental implants are custom-made replacement teeth designed to match the shape and color of the original tooth or teeth. Each one is fitted with a device that is used to screw directly into the jaw bone. There are numerous benefits to choosing dental implants. Because implants are a permanent solution, most patients feel more confident in the appearance and function of the smile. Additionally, patients aren’t bothered by the common problems associated with dentures and bridges, such as food particles becoming lodged under the appliance or embarrassing slipping. People with dental implants also are able to clean and care for them just as they do with their own teeth.
