NORTHRIDGE, CA, February 19, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Dr. Ariz, Northridge dental implants
specialist, now provides free consultations for patients considering having a dental implant placed. These consultations normally cost well over one hundred dollars at many dental offices in the area.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are usually made from titanium or titanium alloy. These implants are placed either in the jaw bone or under the gums and above the jaw bone. The type of dental implant the patient receives depends on where he or she needs the implant, the thickness of the jaw bone at the site of the implant, and other factors. In some cases, bone grafts are needed to thicken to jaw bone in the area where the implant will be placed. Implant surgery is typically an outpatient process and can often be conducted with a local anesthetic. Once the implant is placed, the healing process takes 3 to 6 months, depending on the type and placement of the implant as well as how well the patient responds to the implant.
Once the implant has completely healed, Dr. Ariz, dentist in Northridge
, can place a crown over the implant to replace a missing tooth, or fit the patient with a dental bridge designed to be secured by the implant. Dental crowns are considered to be a permanent solution for a missing tooth. Once placed, they are not removable unless the dentist needs to remove it for repair or replacement. Bridges affixed to implants are removable for cleaning. Each option has advantages and disadvantages for individual patients.
In addition to implants, dentists at Northridge Dental Group
also offer a number of other dental procedures. They routinely place porcelain crowns over damaged teeth, fit patients with porcelain veneers to cover damages, poorly spaced, or misshapen teeth, perform teeth whitening treatments, places tooth-colored fillings, and perform smile makeovers for patients with a number of severe cosmetic dental problems, such as multiple missing or damaged teeth.
