Dental Implants Bakersfield
Kern Dental Specialties aims to get patients out of pain, whether that means correcting oral defects, periodontal disease or cosmetic problems. To that end, we are proud to offer dental implant surgery to address both the functionality and aesthetics of your smile. The purpose of dental implant surgery is to take the place of a missing or damaged tooth which also contains an artificial tooth root. The implant is held in place by the jaw and functions just as your natural tooth would, or multiple teeth, if you need an implant-supported bridge.
Kern Dental Specialties recommends dental implants because the only alternatives once a tooth has been extracted or falls out is a bridge or removable dentures. Dentures can have an unpleasant sticky adhesive that can be a hassle to deal with, and they need to be removed and cleaned regularly. The benefit to dental implants Bakersfield endodontists place is that the jawbone will not erode due to tooth loss, because part of the function of natural teeth is to support jawbone health. Without teeth, the jawbone loses strength and can significantly weaken. Fortunately, you have a dentist in Bakersfield eager to address your oral health issues so you are pain-free.
