LOS ANGELES, CA, April 09, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. Bijan Afar, Los Angeles dental implants dentist, offers a variety of tooth replacement options for those who have lost a tooth or several teeth due to decay, gum disease, accidents or other reasons. Several tooth replacement options are available, and the type used depends largely on the patient's needs, dental health status and preference.
Dr. Afar offers dental implants that look and feel just like natural teeth. Titanium dental implants replace not just the missing tooth but also its root, which results in a strong, durable, natural-looking restoration. Most people who are missing teeth and have good dental health are candidates for dental implants. Some people may need additional treatments to ensure a more successful procedure.
Other tooth replacement options are also available. Los Angeles dental implant specialist, Dr. Bijan Afar, offers dental bridges and dentures as well. Dental bridges require the alteration of healthy teeth on either side of the gap. The teeth will be shaped and contoured before having crowns placed on them to support the dental bridge. Dentures are designed to replace an entire arch of teeth or all the teeth.
Dental implants are often preferred to dental bridges or dentures because they work just like natural teeth. They do not affect adjacent teeth, and because the implant fuses with the jawbone, gum and bone tissue loss is minimized or nonexistent. They are also quite easy to maintain: Patients can simply brush and floss them along with their other teeth and receive dental exams and cleanings twice a year. Additionally, dental implants can be expected to last a lifetime. Dr. Bijan Afar, expert in dental implant in Los Angeles, recommends dental implants as the healthiest tooth replacement option for most patients.
