Dental Implants provide a Long-term Solution to Tooth Loss
- Posted on: Nov 15 2018
Restoring the smile after tooth loss requires patients to consider a variety of options for tooth replacement. This may include:
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
One of the most popular options for the replacement of one or more teeth is that of the dental implant. Patients in the area of Beverly Hills, CA may ask about implants, which are a versatile solution.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are restorations that are commonly used in achieving a more attractive smile after tooth loss has happened. These implants are highly recommended because they can last a lifetime. They appear as small screws that are fabricated from titanium metal, a metal that is biocompatible with the body and is perfect for implants in the medical field. These screws can be restored over the top in various ways. A dental crown may be placed over the abutment to replace a single tooth. A dental bridge may be used on the abutment for the replacement of one or more teeth. Alternatively, dental implants may be placed along the dental arch and used to stabilize a full denture within the smile. This provides patients with better functionality than using dentures alone or with dental adhesives.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
It is essential that patients book a consultation appointment and initial evaluation with our team of professionals if they are interested in dental implants. This is because implants do require patients to have sufficient bone structure for successful placement. To determine candidacy, patients must undergo x-rays to check the bone structure and ensure a healthy smile for the best results.
