Anaheim, CA (PRWEB) January 26, 2017
Dr. Jin Y. Kim, a world-renowned periodontist, is pleased to announce that patients with or without a referral can now turn to him for treatment for their missing teeth in Anaheim, CA. Dr. Kim understands the effect that missing teeth can have on a person’s self-esteem as well as their personal and professional lives which is why he is dedicated to teaching patients the benefits of dental implant placement.
Dental implants are quickly becoming a leading tooth replacement option across the world due to their stability and esthetic benefits. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), more than three million Americans have dental implants and each year that number increases by more than 500,000.
For each dental implant placement, Dr. Kim utilizes the latest technology, including 3D imaging, to improve the patient experience and increase accuracy. Dr. Kim first surgically places a titanium post in the jaw bone that acts like the tooth root, offering reliable stability. Once this has fully healed, the root is capped with a custom-designed crown that is affixed with the help of an abutment piece.
When properly cared for, dental implants can last decades. They are also vital in slowing and stopping bone loss in the jaw. When teeth are no longer present in the jaw, the bone is no longer stimulated to grow and thus loses bone density. When an implant is placed, the body recognizes that area of the jaw is once again receiving stimulation, and stops the degradation of the bone.
With a 98 percent success rate, dental implants are a great choice for patients to replace their missing teeth in Anaheim, CA.
