Benefits of Dental Implants

Hayward Dentist serving Castro Valley, San Leandro, CA and Surrounding Areas

When compared with other options for replacing missing teeth, such as dental bridges and dentures, dental implants have a number of advantages, including superior durability, performance and aesthetic value. However, dental implants sometimes require restoration to correct damaged or ill-fitting dental crowns.

Hayward cosmetic dentist Dr. Gary G. Fong offers customized dental implant restorations to patients from Hayward and the surrounding Castro Valley, San Leandro and Union City areas. If you have damaged or poorly fitting dental implants, please call 510-582-8727 to learn how Dr. Fong can help.

Dental Implants and Your Oral Health

Dental implants are designed to be a long-term solution for missing teeth. The dental implant itself functions as an artificial root for your replacement tooth, which is anchored firmly in your jaw bone.

Dental implants prevent further bone loss and gum deterioration associated with missing teeth, and they help maintain the position and function of adjacent natural teeth. Dental implants also allow you to retain your natural bite functionality.

Unlike dentures and dental bridges, dental implants are easy to keep clean as part of your daily dental hygiene routine. Because dental implants are permanently anchored in your jaw bone and your dental crowns are individually crafted to fit your smile and perform like natural teeth, they are cared for just like healthy natural teeth with daily brushing and flossing.

Appearance and Comfort

The dental crowns that act as replacement teeth are custom made from durable, dental-grade porcelain that resembles the color and texture of your natural teeth for a uniform smile.

Dental implants also feel like your natural teeth. This provides you with consistent comfort and helps you speak and eat properly.

If you have damaged or badly fitting dental implants, please contact Dr. Gary G. Fong to learn if dental implant restorations are right for you. Dr. Fong welcomes patients from the greater Hayward, Castro Valley, San Leandro and Union City, California, areas.
