Dental Implants Are The Best Way To Prevent Losing More of Your Teeth

Dental implants, which are natural-looking replacements for teeth that have been lost or need to be removed, are important to not only maintain a lovely smile, but critical to your overall oral health. Failure to replace missing teeth results in the others moving to try to fill the gap, which causes the deterioration of the underlying jawbone and eventually the loss of other teeth.

Whether a single tooth or multiples have been lost due to decay or accidents, it is important for you to take immediate action to prevent the gradual misalignment that makes it easier for food to get stuck between crooked teeth. When food is not removed, the result is a sticky film of bacteria and infection that causes the gums to pull away from teeth. This full-blown “periodontal disease” will gradually eat away at your jawbone, but usually painlessly. Bleeding gums are a sign and if your efforts to treat them with deep cleaning and better flossing and brushing are not effective, you will need x-rays to determine how serious the problem is.

Gum infection has also been shown to significantly raise the risks of diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Dental Implants have been traced back to the 600 AD when tooth-like pieces of shell were hammered into the jaw of Mayan woman.

Today’s implants are much less painful and more attractive. It is the only dental restoration of missing teeth that help to stimulate bone growth; it discourages bone resorption and recession.

Getting dental implants relieves the worry about tooth decay as an implant is made of materials that cannot decay nor stain.

It is a permanent restoration that will be stronger and immobile as dentures, partials and space maintainers are.

Dental Implant From Wilshire Smile Studio

Fortunately, Wilshire Smile Studio in Los Angeles is a highly-regarded specialist in dental implants. A revolution in material and techniques has enabled the team to perfectly match neighboring teeth.

  • First, x-rays and 3-D CT scans help the creation of a model of the area that will receive the implant.
  • Then (after extracting any remaining part of the defective tooth), a rod of bio-friendly titanium that resembles a screw is surgically and painlessly inserted and a temporary crown is placed to enable patient to continue to chew normally.
  • As bone forms around the rod over the next few months, a permanent crown will be crafted in collaboration with a top dental lab, then tested for a comfortable bite (there are a variety of options for the appearance and affordability, but unlike many other dental practices, Wilshire Smile Studio never uses overseas labs that would compromise the result).

All-On-Four

All-On-Four is a revolutionary new type of implant for those who have lost many of their teeth and are not satisfied with dentures. Instead of the conventional approach of individual implants, our oral surgeon will prepare your upper and lower teeth with just four implants, each with a group of natural-looking replacement teeth.

If you continue to brush twice a day for two minutes at a time, floss once a day, and have the hygienist do a professional cleaning regularly, dental implants can last 10-20 years, compared with 5-10 years for bridges or partial dentures. Implants can also replace dentures for a permanent and more comfortable bite or be used to anchor dentures, resulting in better ability to eat and speak.
