If you have any missing teeth, you may feel uncomfortable smiling in a crowd now, or even struggle with speech and eating. Fortunately, dental implants can help improve these issues and be that boost of confidence you may need.

The two types of dental implants that the American Dental Association consider safe include the following:

Endosteal implants– These type of dental implants are typically shaped like a small screw, cylinder, or plate and are surgically placed into your jaw bone. Endosteal can be used for many purposes such as stabilizing an existing tooth or used as an anchor, providing support for one or more artificial teeth.

Subperiosteal implants– This type of dental implant is placed on top of the jaw bone with metal frame work. This method is usually used in patients that have a shallow jaw bone. Subperiosteal implants are used to replace teeth in a limited area or to replace a full set a teeth.

Many patients are suffering from the same dilemma and feel like there is nothing they can do, however, thanks to the advanced technology utilized by Dr. Yamada you can achieve your dream smile with tooth colored fillings.

Dr. Yamada encourages patients to receive tooth colored fillings by listing the following advantages:

• Tooth colored fillings eliminate unnatural, metal fillings
• Tooth colored fillings diminish discoloration caused by metal fillings
• Tooth colored fillings prevent tooth decay and gum diseases
• Tooth colored fillings strengthen your teeth
• Tooth colored fillings are undetectable and match the exact shade of your teeth

Modern dentistry is now using more tooth-like materials (composite resins and porcelains) that are both safe and predictable. The most important feature, for many people, is that they look and react more like natural teeth. In the past, teeth were filled with a mixture—or amalgam—of different metals. Today that is changing as more natural-looking and metal-free fillings are becoming the preferred approach.

Are you tired of traditional metal fillings making your teeth look dated? Amalgam fillings, or metallic fillings, have been around for years and have been used by dentists to complete many cosmetic procedures. Metal fillings are most commonly used to fill holes left by cavities. While using this procedure is indeed very effective, there are a multitude of controversies surrounding the safety and appearance of them.

Metal fillings are made out of a material composed of 50% mercury mixed with another 50% of copper, silver, and tin. The controversies spawn from the idea that too much mercury in one’s system has been proven to cause neurological issues.

If you don’t want to go the traditional route, ask your dentist about tooth colored fillings! Tooth colored fillings, or resin, are made out of a much safer material than amalgam fillings. Along with that, tooth colored fillings are safer, not to mention enhance the cosmetic appearance of teeth due to their natural tooth like color!
