WEST COVINA, Calif., Dec. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dr. Jin Kim, esteemed dual board-certified periodontist, encourages patients with a missing tooth or knocked-out tooth to restore their smiles with a dental implant in West Covina, CA. He welcomes patients for award-winning care, with or without a referral, at one of his practice locations in Garden Grove and Diamond Bar, CA.
Patients who lose a tooth, especially in the "smile zone" (teeth that show when someone smiles), can experience a decline in their self-esteem and dental function. Even with a temporary fix like a flipper, bone at the site of the missing tooth will resorb and may cause adjacent teeth to shift out of place. Over time, a single missing or knocked-out tooth can lead to problems with occlusion, loosening teeth, and the increased risk of infection and gum disease. To halt or prevent these concerns, patients can choose a dental implant, which provides a permanent and functional replacement for a single knocked-out or missing tooth.
Dental implants are replacements for tooth roots that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. They provide stimulation to keep the bone healthy and dense while supporting an attached custom dental crown. A single dental implant can restore a complete smile and return proper smile aesthetics and dental function. Unlike a flipper or dental bridge, a dental implant is designed to last for decades without becoming loose, decayed, or falling out. With a restored smile, patients can once again experience greater self-confidence in teeth that improve eating, natural smile aesthetics, and oral health.
Dr. Kim is a renowned expert in dental implant treatment and is considered a worldwide leader in implant dentistry. He has placed thousands of dental implants and gained extensive experience as a periodontist and dental implant specialist.
