A Few Things to Know about Dental Implants

Posted on: 2018-10-29

Dental Implants, Few Things to Know

In simple words, dental implants can be defined as the metal frames or posts, which are surgically positioned by dentists into the jawbone located under the gums of your teeth. Once diamond implants are set in place, your general dentist will be able to easily mount replacement teeth onto the implants.

 

Dental implants are usually fused to the jawbone of people, which means that these implants are capable of offering sufficient support for artificial teeth. The bridges and dentures that are mounted on dental implants will never shift or slip which means that you will be able to speak and eat without any difficulties even when you are using artificial teeth.

 

In addition to securing the bridges and dentures, dental implants also offer support to the individual crowns that are placed over them. The presence of these individual crowns will make your teeth look a lot more natural. In addition to that, the arrangement of these dental implants makes them highly comfortable to wear and use.

 

Some people often claim that ordinary dentures and bridges that come with dental implants are not that comfortable. This is because some ordinary bridges and dentures may contain poor ridges and sore spots, which makes them inconvenient for use.

 

Another important point to remember is that regular bridges must be attached to teeth on both sides of the missing tooth. The advantage of using dental implants is that there is no need to prepare or ground down an adjacent tooth to hold the newly teeth or tooth in place.

 

You should also realize the fact that you will need healthy gums and an adequate number of bones to support the new dental implants. Apart from that, you should also take the necessary steps to keep these dental implants in fine shape and form. This means that regular visits to the dentist and maintaining proper oral hygiene are crucial for your dental implants to stay in shape for long.

 

Note that dental implants are actually a bit more expensive when compared to other tooth replacement methods. In most cases, insurance carriers usually cover 10% of the fees or even less than that when it comes to dental implants. However, dental implants are still worthy long-term investments, which is why most general dentists highly recommend their patients to go for the procedure.

 

5 Pros of Regular Dental Visits

Brushing and flossing your teeth daily is a prerequisite to keeping them looking healthy and beautiful. However, not everything your teeth need can be accomplished at home by yourself; every once in a while, it is a good idea to head over to the dentist and get them cleaned and checked for problems. These days, dentists focus on not just fixing said problems, but also preventing them.

A hectic lifestyle may not accommodate your need for regular dental visits very well, but you definitely need to find the time to ensure your teeth stay in good condition. Regular dental cleaning visits are a sensible thing to incorporate into your life, mainly for the following reasons.

 

Early Dental Problem Detection

A routine check-up allows your dentist to find out if you have any among a number of dental problems, including gum disease, deep spaces between gums and teeth, cavities, plaque, and even oral cancer. This means each month you put off a dentist visit, the chances of you having one of these problems undetected piles up. The alternative lets you rest easy that your dental health is in good order.

 

Increased Self-Esteem

With a smile that is pleasing to the people you meet, you are better able to manage a good impression during interactions. Following a dentist visit, you are armed with superior confidence that allows you to be the best of yourself. They say people who have good smiles are generally also seen as being smarter.

 

Getting to Know your Dentist

Your dentist is someone you will be working with more and more closely as time passes, and scheduled visits can help to set up good communication between the both of you. Any nervousness you feel about procedures can be assuaged by their obvious competence and skill, which you get to witness each time you walk in for a check-up.

 

Good Example for Kids

Dental anxieties are often passed on from parent to child, which means that if you are reluctant to get your teeth looked at every month, your kid will likely have the same problem. A routine of visits to the dentist, on the other hand, normalizes dental upkeep and lets your child easily pick it up as a lifelong habit.

 

Better Sleep

Sleep problems often fall within a dentist’s area of expertise, simply because most people who have them can trace the issue back to their mouth falling open. Even otherwise, your dentist can recommend a good sleep specialist you can visit.

 

5 Common Things That Prompt Wisdom Tooth Removal

Posted on: 2018-10-22

Causes for Wisdom Tooth Removal North Hollywood, CA, beard man suffering from toothache

 Many people have wisdom teeth, which lots of experts believe are a vestige of evolution from a time when man ate kinds of food different from what we consume now. These teeth are technically molars that usually show up between seventeen and twenty-five, a time that is informally called the wisdom years. Wisdom teeth have no function, and in many cases, they even become unmanageable to the point of causing severe pain.

Your dentist might normally recommend wisdom teeth removal as a way to prevent subsequent dental problems, or the procedure may become imperative due to one or more of the following reasons.

 

Incorrect Growth

Sometimes, when wisdom teeth grow in, they take up excessive space inside the mouth. You cannot get them straightened out with braces, and because your mouth is overcrowded, no viable procedure can make all your teeth fit together. A general dentist could take a look and tell you which wisdom teeth need to be extracted. Removing all of them sets you back to a total of twenty-eight teeth, assuming you have never lost a tooth.

 

Pain and Irritation

Wisdom teeth can hurt, and if pain comes on, you need to see your dentist as soon as possible. They can tell you whether the tooth causing the pain, or something else is. If it is the former, extraction is still only one of the options going forward. Some pains can correct themselves, eliminating the need of a removal procedure.

 

Difficulty in Eating

If you experience pain while you eat, your wisdom teeth may need to be extracted. You may have food stuck between these and your gums. Proper attention must be paid to cleaning these areas while brushing, and your dentist can help you with that. If the issue cannot be resolved any other way, then an extraction may be the only choice.

 

A Cyst Surrounding a Wisdom Tooth

If you have a fluid-filled sac from near a wisdom tooth, then you have what is called cyst. Left by itself, a cyst can erode bones and roots. If the problem exacerbates, it could even develop into a tumor that demands complex surgery to remove. Wisdom teeth removal is usually the easiest and safest way to take care of this.

 

Crooked Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth can grow in crooked, causing other teeth to shift and tilt. Some of the latter can even get damaged because of this. Extraction of the problematic wisdom tooth can prevent that from happening.

 

Why North Hollywood, CA area patients may need to have wisdom teeth removal

Posted on: 2017-05-24

wisdom teeth removal form Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat, A-Dental Center

North Hollywood, CA area patients are often educated on how to care for their smiles. Some may have heard of others having their wisdom teeth removed. Removal of these third molars is not always necessary, but may be done for a variety of reasons.

 

Why wisdom teeth removal?

Some reasons patients may have their wisdom teeth removed include:

  • Impaction – since the wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt through the gum line, they may become stuck within the jaw bone. At this point, they can become extremely problematic, causing patients undue pain and discomfort. Removing the impacted teeth is the only way to bring the smile back to health.
  • Dental health – when the wisdom teeth come through the gum line, they are present at the far back of the mouth. Because of their placement, they may be difficult to clean. Brushing and flossing may not keep them as clean as necessary to ensure periodontal disease and cavities do not form. Removing these teeth can help in keeping the smile healthy.
  • Maintenance of orthodontic work – patients who have had orthodontic work done may be worried about their wisdom teeth pushing the existing teeth out of alignment. Some dentists will surgically remove the wisdom teeth before they come through the gum line to avoid this. This eliminates the need for orthodontic work in the future if the smile becomes overcrowded.

Discuss the possibility of wisdom teeth extraction

 

Whether you are experiencing pain and discomfort from your third molars or are worried about maintaining your oral health with them in place, Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat will work with you to determine your best course of action. At A-Dental Center, we consult with patients to determine if extraction is necessary. Call (818) 593-0700 today to schedule an appointment at 11335 Magnolia Boulevard #1A.

    I called A-dental on Tuesday 10/23 almost to tears with pain I was experiencing from one of my many cavaties. I knew I had cavaties because I had been to a different dentist who I just wasnt comfortable with. Anyways, right from the minute Edith answered the phone I knew I would be in good hands. I figured they would take me in either the day after or near future but she was able to squeeze me in right away.

    This place was amazing. I had an infected impacted wisdom tooth that was spreading to my head. The cost of the procedure to take this infected tooth out was too expensive for me and i didn't insurance and had to pay out of pocket. They worked with me on the cost so I could afford it. They didn't try and rob me of every nickel I had which a lot of other dental offices do. It was one of a few places I have been to where I felt like they actually cared more about my well being than money. The whole staff was incredibly nice and accomodating.

    I been going to Dr. Elzayat for years and he is just awesome. I was without dental insurance for a almost 2 years, so when I finally got it, I had about a total of 7 fillings to be done, but all were painless. He even calls to check up on you later that evening to make sure you aren't having any problems or in any pain. Dr Elzayat and all staff you rock!
