El Monte, CA (PRWEB) December 09, 2013
El Monte dentist, Dr. Bijan Afar, now offers dental implants for replacing missing teeth. Missing teeth are common for those 35 and older. The most common cause of tooth loss is periodontal disease, or gum disease, which affects the gums and the underlying structures. However, tooth decay and dental trauma can also lead to tooth loss. Replacing the lost teeth is critical to continued good dental health.

The bone fuses to the implant, which creates a permanent support for the tooth restoration. Porcelain dental crowns are often used with single dental implants to replace one or more teeth. Dental bridges or dentures can be supported by several strategically placed dental implants. Once the implants have been placed, patients can keep their smiles healthy by maintaining good dental hygiene, visiting El Monte crowns dentist, Dr. Afar, for routine checkups and following any personalized recommendations for their dental needs.
