You may think those missing teeth only hurt your smile, but tooth loss can have a tremendous impact on your chewing ability and overall health,” said Dr. Jivraj.
OXNARD, CA (PRWEB) November 18, 2014
Dr. Saj Jivraj and Dr. Mamaly Reshad, Southern California leaders in Ventura cosmetic dental procedures, have published a blog discussing the long-term effects of living without teeth.
Dr. Jivraj is the founder of the Anacapa Dental Art Institute, which operates offices in Woodland Hills and Oxnard. Dr. Jivraj and his partner, Dr. Reshad, are recognized as experts on procedures such as All-on-4™ dental implants and the new smile in on day protocol, putting them in high demand.
In their Nov. 15 blog published to their website (http://www.DentalImplantsVentura.com), the Oxnard dentists write that those with missing teeth or anyone using dentures not supported by dental implants have difficulties receiving proper nutrition and often face substantial jawbone loss.
“You may think those missing teeth only hurt your smile, but tooth loss can have a tremendous impact on your chewing ability and overall health,” said Dr. Jivraj, one of the world’s leading prosthodontists. “And from an aesthetic standpoint, patients missing full arches of teeth often see their jawbone deteriorate, which, of course, reshapes their face.”
Dr. Jivraj and Dr. Reshad write that there are revolutionary solutions like All-on-4™ dental implants or All On Six dental implants that can anchor permanent teeth and preserve the jawbone. Dr. Jivraj and Dr. Reshad use titanium screws that act as tooth roots and anchor a set of permanent, natural-looking teeth.
“These implants are more than just looks,” Dr. Reshad said. “We know that living without teeth leads to poor nutrition, which can shave years off a patient’s life. These implants can restore chewing ability and get patients back on track to a healthier lifestyle.”
Dr. Jivraj is an award-winning prosthodontist who specializes in implant, cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry. Besides being a former chairman of the University of Southern California School of Dentistry’s Fixed Prosthodontics and Operative Dentistry section, he also is an international lecturer and has written more than two dozen articles on implant dentistry and restorative dentistry for the British Dental Association.
Dr. Jivraj received advanced prosthodontic training at the USC School of Dentistry. He is co-author of the textbook “Treatment Planning in Implant Dentistry,” which is used around the world. Dr. Jivraj is on the editorial board of the Journal of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry, ad hoc reviewer for the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry and is associate clinical editor for Dental Teamwork magazine.
He is an associate clinical professor at the USC School of Dentistry, clinical teacher at the Eastman Dental Institute in London and is on the board of directors for the British Academy of Restorative Dentistry.
Dr. Jivraj won “Best of USA” by his peers in 2008.
His partner at the Anacapa Dental Art Institute is Dr. Mamaly Reshad, who is also a former chairman of University of Southern California School of Dentistry’s Fixed Prosthodontics and Operative Dentistry section.
