When might Hollywood area patients consider dental implants?
Repairing the smile after tooth loss is essential for dental health and the function of the smile. Patients who experience the loss or extraction of a natural adult tooth may also feel as though the replacement of this tooth is important for their overall appearance. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat of A-Dental Center is proud to offer Hollywood area patients a variety of restorative options for tooth loss, which includes dental implants.
Dental implants are commonly used by adult patients seeking a permanent way to address tooth loss. These restorations are made of titanium and are implanted into the jawbone during an oral surgery procedure. They stimulate the growth of bone, which wraps around the implant and provides an effective method of holding the restoration in place and giving it the strength to function properly. Dental implants can be restored over the top with a bridge, crown, or even full dentures for stability. These versatile restorations are commonly provided for Hollywood area residents by A-Dental Center.
There are several reasons patients may choose dental implants over alternative restorative solutions including dentures and dental bridges. Dental implants are strong, stable, and can last a lifetime when patients take good care of their oral health over the years. The restorations over the top are easily replaced if broken or lost, and patients will be able to enjoy a very efficient smile that allows them to eat their favorite foods without worry. Dental implants are biocompatible and they work well with the body and are highly desirable for patients who want a safe, permanent way to replace their missing natural tooth or teeth.
A-Dental Center suggests patients call for a consultation appointment and evaluation to find out if they are appropriate candidates for this method of restoration. The men and women best suited for this treatment option are those who have enough bone in the jaw to hold the implant in place and stimulate the process of osseointegration. This is where the bone grows and wraps around the base of the implant and provides it the stability necessary to function at its best. Dr. Elzayat and the team of A-Dental Center can determine one’s candidacy by using x-rays to check for bone structure and to examine the smile to check for signs of periodontal disease or decay that can affect the placement and maintaining of dental implants.
