Torrance, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2013
Dr. Barry Kashfian, Torrance dentist, now offers patients dental implants to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are a permanent, natural-looking method for replacing missing teeth and restoring a patient’s smile.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made from titanium or titanium alloy that are implanted into the jaw bone. Once they are anchored into the jaw, the bone heals over the implant, forming a solid, unmovable bond. After the healing is complete, Dr. Kashfian, Torrance cosmetic dentist, caps the implant with a crown, finishing the process of replacing the missing tooth.
Many patients prefer dental implants over dental bridges because they offer several advantages that bridges do not possess. Unlike bridges, placing a dental implant does not necessitate damaging the surrounding teeth, lessening the possibility that tooth decay or infection will set in. Dental implants are also more permanent than bridges and less likely to become damaged and need replacement. In addition, dental implants look and feel more natural. Because the crown covers the implant completely and is made specially to match the other teeth, no one except the patient and Dr. Kashfian will know that it is not a natural tooth. Finally, implants function just like natural teeth and no diet restrictions or special oral care routines are needed to care for the implant.
