Tooth loss is a problem for many people. While old age is often to blame, other reasons include gum diseases such as periodontitis, injury, and poor overall oral health. Severe cases may result in a disfigured or awkward smile – something everyone wants to avoid. Although most people rely on the use of dentures, these appliances are not always the best solution for every patient. They can be uncomfortable, unreliable and unnatural, and they don’t help prevent bone loss the way a dental implant can. If you want a truly great solution, dental implants are the answer. Studio City Dental Arts can provide you with skillfully-placed, natural-looking implants that can last a lifetime.
What are dental implants, and why should I get them?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots placed in the jaw to support and hold a replacement tooth or bridge. In many ways, these are the ideal solution for addressing tooth loss, and they are currently the most durable means of doing so. One of the best things about dental implants is their natural look and feel, giving you the confidence to speak, eat and smile. They blend well with real teeth in both aesthetic and functional aspects.
An implant is placed in the bone, on the site of the missing tooth. Once it heals, we place an abutment (post) and proceed with crown fabrication on top. Of course, treatment methods depend on individual needs. Your specific condition and implant choice dictates the length of time and healing period for this treatment. Nevertheless, dental implants allow Dr. Shahrestany to replace not just one, but several, missing teeth. You can enjoy a complete set of teeth that feel so natural for your smile.
A dental implant is considered as the best solution for a missing tooth because it integrates into your bone structure, which prevents bone loss and gum recession, in addition to providing you with a new tooth. There’s also no need to alter adjacent teeth for support. The more teeth that are left unchanged, the better, as far as your overall oral well-being is concerned. Moreover, dental implants allow you to speak and eat comfortably and confidently. They have been proven to have a high success rate by doctors and patients from around the world.
