LOS ANGELES, March 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Angeles dental implants dentist Dr. Bijan Afar offers dental implants for tooth replacement. A bright, beautiful smile can have a powerful allure. Unfortunately, many people lose one or more teeth as they age, most commonly due to severe tooth decay, gum disease or trauma. Replacing these lost or missing teeth can help restore a person's appearance, self-confidence, smile and dental function. Several tooth replacement options are available today, but dental implants are generally considered the healthiest choice for most people.
Dental implants are titanium root replacements that are implanted directly into the jaw through a minor dental surgery procedure. Titanium is a highly biocompatible metal that literally fuses with the jawbone just as the natural tooth does. As the jaw heals around the new dental implant, it creates a strong, sturdy support for a replacement tooth that is virtually indistinguishable from the natural teeth. Dr. Bijan Afar, Los Angeles dental implant specialist, offers consultations for those interested in the dental implant procedure where they can learn more about their options and determine if dental implants are right for them.
Anyone who is missing a tooth or teeth may be a candidate for dental implants. They can be used to support dental crowns, dental bridges or even dentures. Most people who enjoy good gum health, who have adequate bone density and who are healthy enough to undergo dental surgery will generally be the best candidates. The success rate for dental implants is extremely high, and they are considered a lifelong restoration with a feel, function and look that is just like natural teeth, which means they can be used to eat comfortably and can improve overall dental health.
