Regardless of whether you are ready to schedule your dental implant procedure or are still in the process of researching if dental implants are the best solution for you, ClearChoice Dental Implant Center Encino is here to guide you through the process. Dental implants provide a permanent base for fixed replacement teeth, making them a popular and effective solution for missing or failing teeth. Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants fit, feel, and function more like your natural teeth than dentures or bridges.
When left untreated, gum disease can increase your risk of conditions like stroke, heart disease, and cancer. Therefore it is important not to delay gum disease treatment. ClearChoice Dental Implants Encino looks forward to assisting you in finding a comfortable and permanent solution to your dental issues and putting you on a path toward renewed oral and overall health.
