Fountain Valley, CA (PRWEB) February 06, 2014
Dr. Robert Mokbel offers dental implants as a solution for patients who have made it their New Year Resolution to replace their missing teeth. It has been estimated that up to 69 percent of adults between the ages of 35-44 will lose at least one of their teeth for a variety of reasons. Moreover, 26 percent of adults will lose all of their permanent teeth by the time they reach the age of 74. Age, accidental injuries, advanced tooth decay, and periodontal disease are all contributing factors to missing teeth in adults.
Traditional methods for replacing missing teeth in adults typically involve placing a dental fixture on top of the gums or using adjacent teeth to anchor a synthetic tooth into place. While these methods work very well for some, dental implants are usually preferred by patients who want a more comfortable and permanent solution for their missing teeth. Research shows that positive, long-term results are achieved when dental patients choose to replace their missing teeth with implants.
When implants are placed in the mouth, they do not sit loosely on top of the gums or require that other healthy adjacent teeth be compromised in order to keep them in place. Instead, they are surgically implanted directly into the jaw where they are allowed to fuse with the natural bone. This process is called osseointegration and it causes the tooth to become just as strong and permanent as a natural tooth. In addition to functioning like a natural tooth, a dental implant also looks just like a natural tooth, which is another reason why Dr. Mokbel recommends dental implants to replace missing teeth.
Missing teeth in adults can be easily replaced by strong and natural-looking dental implants. Fountain Valley residents who are currently missing teeth and who want to look their best in the New Year are encouraged to schedule an appointment with Dr. Mokbel.
