People lose their teeth due to many reasons: accidents, injuries, improper dental care etc. Tooth loss is not just a cosmetic problem, but it also has other more serious implications such as bone loss. Over a period of time, the part of the jawbone that held the missing tooth may get resorbed. If the resorption or bone loss is severe, it can even alter your facial structure and create a haggard appearance.
With Tarzana dental implants you get your teeth, and your youthful face, back. Implants are not like dentures or dental bridges that come with their own drawbacks. A dental implant is as close to your natural teeth as you can get. They are permanent, durable and look exactly like your natural teeth.
With a quarter of a century of experience, Dr. Chaves and his team bring to you the latest in dental care. At Tarzana cosmetic dentist, we adopt a holistic approach towards dental care. This means that it is not just your dental health that we are concerned about, but also your overall health and how your teeth can affect it.
What are Tarzana Dental Implants?
They are artificial teeth that are fixed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. People may lose teeth to injuries, accidents or gum disease. Traditional treatment options for missing teeth were mostly limited to dentures and dental bridges. Dentures are removable teeth that require an adhesive to be fixed in place. They also cause a slur in the speech, and obviously you will always feel the presence of a foreign object in your mouth. Dental bridges require the healthy teeth on either side of the missing teeth to be modified so that either ends of the bridge may be fixed on them. Bridges also require scrupulous after-care to prevent food particles from getting lodged in the small gaps between the artificial teeth and the gums beneath.
A dental implant, on the other hand, is as close to natural tooth as you can get. It has a metal post similar to the natural tooth root. The metal post is made of titanium and is implanted into the jaw bone exactly where the natural tooth used to be. Once the surrounding tissues and bone structure grows into the implant, an artificial tooth is attached to the metal root. Porcelain is usually the material of choice for the artificial tooth. The color and structure of the implanted tooth closely resembles that of the natural tooth.
In short, with Tarzana Dental Implants, once the procedure is completed, you don’t even feel like you have replaced a tooth. And if you don’t tell anyone, nobody will ever know. Carry on with your life just as you would if you had a perfect set of natural teeth. The implants are so strong and durable that you do not even need to restrict yourself from eating certain types of food for fear of damaging them. Smile your way confidently through your life with Tarzana dental implants.
