Where can San Jose patients get affordable dental implants?
Maintaining a full set of teeth is important. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of the San Jose area explains to her patients how beneficial it can be to keep all the natural teeth within the smile. Missing teeth can:
- reduce chewing and biting efficiency
- make it difficult to speak clearly
- result in the shifting of the existing teeth, developing large spaces
- cause deterioration of the jawbone, resulting in an aging, sunken in appearance
While things can happen that result in the loss of natural teeth, it is important to consider restorative options. One option often recommended by Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental is that of dental implants.
Dental implants have a special place in dentistry. They are a restorative option that uses a titanium post surgically inserted into the jawbone and restored with a dental crown, bridge, or denture. The advantage of dental implants is that they use the jawbone for stability, unlike dentures and bridges. Dentures are held in place with adhesives or natural suction while bridges use the support of surrounding teeth. Neither is as effective as the natural jawbone.
Dental implants replace the tooth roots and offer a strong foundation for false teeth, whether it is the placement of a bridge, crown, or full denture over the top. The process is easy, and many patients find that dental implants can be affordable when financed through StarBrite Dental with one of our payment plans. Additionally, though dental implants are often more in terms of upfront cost, their value is for a lifetime. Patients who take good care of their oral health and maintain regular visits with Dr. Munira Lokhandwala for examinations and cleanings will find that dental implants can last a lifetime, making them one of the best investments patients will make in restoring their smiles.
Patients in and around San Jose considering affordable dental implants are welcome to contact StarBrite Dental to learn more about the process of placing these restorations, the benefits they provide, and payments plans to help finance the repair of the smile.
