A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that replaces a missing tooth. A bridge or an artificial tooth stabilizes on this root. If you have lost a tooth due to periodontal disease, injury or another reason then a dental implant can help fill the empty space in your mouth. Make an appointment at Dr. Jeevan DDS dental office in the city of Irvine today to consult with a most qualified dental professional and get the best care possible.
Getting a dental implant can be invasive. It requires a good bone structure for the implants to hold. It also ensures patients’ excellent oral and general health. A dental implant procedure requires input from you, your dentist and your periodontist. You will be prescribed a treatment plan after a detailed consultation and examination. Your individual case and history will be important to Dr. Jeevan. Since dental implants need ample bone to be successful, in some cases, a sinus augmentation or a ridge modification may correct the defect so that you have sufficient bone mass for the procedure.
In some cases, patients lose their teeth because of illness, wear or injury. Tooth loss affects more than just your mouth. It it can adversely affect your self-worth, physical appearance, and quality of life. You can regain all of that just by getting dental implants! It not only rebuilds your your confidence, it also helps to prevent bone loss in the missing tooth’s place. This makes implants a better choice than dentures or fixed bridges.
