Patients in North Hollywood, CA ask, “Where can I get dental implants near me?”
Losing one or several of your teeth can be a traumatizing experience. It may make you self-conscious about your smile. Tooth loss can occur for many reasons, including accidents, injuries, gum disease, or tooth decay. Missing teeth may present additional oral health concerns as the condition weakens the bone and tissues around the lost tooth causing instability for remaining teeth.
At A-Dental Center, located in California, and serving patients in North Hollywood, Los Angeles, Valley Village, Toluca Lake, Sun Valley, Studio City, North Valley, Burbank, Sherman Oaks, Glendale, Van Nuys, and surrounding communities, Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat offers options for patients who wish to restore their healthy smiles.
Dental implants provide a permanent solution to missing teeth. An implant can be considered a replacement of the root of the tooth. Made of titanium, a dental implant is secured into the bone socket of the lost tooth. The bone of the jaw naturally fuses to the post, typically over 6 to 12 weeks. This provides a strong structure for the teeth near the implant. A connector, called an abutment, is added to the implant to secure a crown as a prosthetic tooth.
Dental implants can replace a single tooth or they can be used to secure bridges or dentures to cover a series of missing teeth. In addition to restoring your smile and confidence, dental implants have many advantages, including:
- Durability – with proper care, implants can last a lifetime
- Enhanced speaking ability
- Comfort and convenience – implants feel like natural teeth as opposed to removable prosthetics
- Better oral hygiene – teeth near the implant gain stability and are not altered. Implants also allow cleaning access between teeth
- Improved eating
