There are so many incredible smile advantages you’ll enjoy when you get dental implants.
We know that tooth loss can be such a frustrating problem to deal with. After all, no one wants to lose a permanent tooth. Of course, there are many issues that can lead to tooth loss; fortunately, our Glendale, CA, dentist Dr. Navasart Kazazian and oral surgeon Dr. Apel Keuroghlian are ready to help give your smile the boost it needs with dental implants.
Whether you are missing one tooth or all of your teeth, dental implants can fill those gaps left over by tooth loss and provide you with a stable, permanent solution to restore your smile. Say goodbye to chewing issues or speech impediments caused by tooth loss. Dental implants are the next best thing to natural teeth. No other restoration functions the same way.
The role of implants is to function like natural tooth roots. This means that our Glendale, CA, dentist will need to place the implant into the jawbone. This implant procedure is minor and can be performed right here in our office under local anesthesia. Implants are made from strong, biocompatible metal (typically titanium), which will naturally fuse together with bone and tissue over the course of several months.
Once the implant has melded with natural tissue and bone you will have a reliable foundation from which to support a false tooth or teeth. If you only need to replace a single missing tooth then one implant will be placed and then capped with a dental crown. If you need to replace several teeth or all of your teeth then multiple implants will be placed along the jawbone to support a dental bridge or even full set of dentures.
With the proper maintenance and care your implants could end up lasting the rest of your life, which is a major benefit of choosing this tooth replacement over others. Dental bridges and dentures may be less expensive up front but they will need to be repaired or replaced rather often and they aren’t as durable. Implants are more reliable and may never need to be replaced, making them a great investment for those looking to treat their tooth loss.
