Opt for Dental Implants for Missing Teeth

Posted by Dr. Mark Kujiraoka in Uncategorized 15 Jun 2017

Dental implants are the best solution for a missing tooth or missing teeth, and if you have one or more missing teeth, it’s time to schedule a no obligation dental implants appointment with Sacramento Implant Dentist, Dr. Mark Kujiraoka. Dr. Kujiraoka from Mak DDS has the tools and the experience to replace your missing tooth or teeth in Sacramento.

Missing teeth can cause serious problems, and it’s not just your looks that will pay the price. Even a missing back tooth can cause your other teeth to shift position.

In the US, over 20 million people have tooth extractions every year. However, less than 10 percent of those patients do their research before having a tooth removed. Lack of finances, knowledge and fear prevent people from visiting the dentist and once the pain sets in, it is usually too late.

According to Mak DDS, most people presume that tooth loss is a fact of life and inevitable with age. However, tooth loss can be controlled if you practice good oral hygiene. Brushing twice and flossing once each day along with regular dental checkups can prevent periodontal disease and eventual tooth loss. Tooth loss can also be prevented by avoiding sugary foods, carbohydrates, and foods, such as citrus fruit, that can produce acid. Tobacco use can also be to blame for tooth loss.

Saving a tooth is always preferred; however, if that isn’t possible, Dr. Kujiraoka recommends that you schedule a no obligation dental implants consultation. If you are a good fit for dental implants, you will not have to deal with gum or jaw recession, as dental implants are just as strong, if not stronger, than your natural teeth.

Dentures and dental bridges can replace missing teeth, but neither will give you the optimum results that dental implants will.
