If you make it through your entire life with all of your natural teeth, you’re one of the very few to do so. Losing teeth becomes a fact of life for many people at various stages of their lives. However and whenever you lose a tooth, it’s vital that you replace it right away to protect your remaining healthy teeth and restore the look and function of your smile. Dental implants are a great restorative option to consider.

At Woodland Hills Family Dnetistry, we offer dental implants as a tooth replacement option that is comfortable, natural-looking, and long-lasting.

What Is A Dental Implant?

If this is your first time hearing about dental implants, you’re not alone! A surprising number of people are still completely unaware of the solutions we have available for them. If there’s one thing we want you to take away from this post, it’s that a dental implant is a true investment in your future.

These tiny posts, similar to screws, are typically made of titanium. They are surgically placed into your jawbone where the roots of your missing tooth used to be. Your bone fuses with the implant, securing it into place. The implant is then as secure as a healthy tooth and feels like a natural part of you.

Once the implant heals completely, we’ll attach a replacement tooth, such as a dental crown, to the implant to restore the look and function of your smile.

Advantages Of Dental Implants

There are several advantages to using dental implants to restore your smile. Some of those advantages include:

Improved appearance

With dental implants, we can fill in gaps in your smile. We’ll restore your smile and give you the ability to show off your smile with confidence.

Clearer speech

Missing teeth or poor-fitting dentures can cause you to slur your words or speak unclearly. After we restore your smile, you’ll find that you’re able to speak clearly without worrying about whether people can understand you.

Improved comfort

Dental implants become a part of you. They feel like your natural, healthy teeth. That means you don’t have to bother with removable dentures or other potentially uncomfortable smile restorations.

Easier eating

It can be hard to eat when you’re missing teeth. You likely had to avoid certain foods and stick to foods your teeth could handle. Once we restore your smile, you’ll be able to eat whatever you want with complete confidence.

More self-confidence

There’s a good chance you were embarrassed to show your smile when it was riddled with gaps and missing teeth. But once your treatment is complete, we’re confident you’ll love your smile so much you’ll have a hard time not showing it off!

Improved oral health

With dental implants, there’s no need to alter nearby teeth to support the implant. That means we can leave more of your natural, healthy teeth intact. This is great news for your long-term oral health. Plus, with individual dental implants, you can more easily access the area between your teeth when brushing and flossing, which is also great for oral health.


With proper care and maintenance, a dental implant can last a lifetime. Now that’s hard to beat!


You’d be hard-pressed to find a restoration solution as convenient as dental implants. With this option, you aren’t required to do any more work than you would with a full set of natural teeth. You don’t have to fuss with removable dentures or extra appliances. Just brush and floss your teeth as normal and you’re good to go!
