Are dental implants the right choice for you? An increasing number of people are choosing dental implants in order to improve their smile and replace broken or missing teeth. Commonly the result of gum disease, tooth decay, and injury, tooth loss can cause a negative effect on your self-confidence and can even alter your facial appearance over time. Modern dental implants are an excellent option for replacing one or more teeth without affecting the adjacent teeth. The implant procedure allows an artificial tooth root to be positioned in the jawbone in order to hold a replacement bridge or tooth. Thanks to modern technology, only the highest quality materials are used in the construction of implants.
When deciding whether dental implants are the right option for you, Dr. Farahmand and his experienced staff can provide you with an evaluation to determine whether implants are a proper alternative for your specific situation.
Age is usually not a relevant factor for adults in determining whether implants are a good treatment choice. In the event that you have an oral disease, such as decay or periodontal disease, your dentist in West Hollywood will need to treat the underlying condition before any dental implant procedure takes place. In addition, implants may not be a suitable option for individuals who suffer from conditions that might make it difficult to properly care for their implant.
Once in place, a dental implant will feel, look, and function just like a natural tooth. In the case of dental hygiene, it is important that you practice regular at-home care and that you follow-up with your dentist regularly. You may also be provided with a care plan that is developed specifically for your situation that will ensure your new implants and mouth remain strong and healthy.
