ENCINO, CA, August 08, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Encino dentist, Dr. Bina, is now offering dental implants consultations. Implants are a permanent solution to tooth loss. They can be used to replace teeth that are lost due to accidents, extractions, tooth decay or gum disease, and they look and feel just like natural teeth. Dental implants are considered by many dental experts to be the gold standard in tooth replacement.
Dental implants offer many benefits over traditional tooth restorations, including:
• More natural-looking and feeling
• No need to alter existing teeth
• Prevention of bone loss
• Improved speech
• Easier eating
• Greater durability
• Enhanced comfort and convenience
The process begins with a consultation with Dr. Bina. Dr. Bina evaluates each patient's candidacy to ensure that implants are the best option for their needs. Only a small incision is needed to place the screw-like implant. Once the implant has been inserted into the jawbone, the opening can be closed using a dissolvable stitch. Most patients recover quickly and without complication.
Over the next several weeks or months, the bone and gum tissue will heal. During this time, the bone will fuse with the implant in a process called osseointegration. This creates a stable base for the next phase of treatment: the restoration. Dr. Bina will place an abutment over the implant to connect the screw-like device with a crown. Multiple implants can be restored with several dental crowns or with a bridge or denture.
Dr. Bina also offers cosmetic dentistry, dental veneers, root canals, general dentistry, smile makeovers and emergency dental treatments.
