LOS ANGELES, Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Angeles implant expert, Dr. Kevin Sands, today announces that he offers natural-looking solutions for replacement of missing teeth. Tooth loss is a common problem that negatively affects the health and appearance of affected patients. Several replacement options exist, with all offering different levels of protection against the complications of tooth loss. Dental implants, the preferred solution, replace the roots of teeth and are the only way to completely avoid the damaging effects of missing teeth.

When it comes to replacing lost teeth, patients can choose from various treatments, including:
- Dental implants
- Bridge-supported dental crowns
- Removable dentures
According to Dr. Sands: "although crowns and dentures restore the looks and functioning of patients, they do not address the loss of tooth roots, which results in long-term risks of jaw bone resorption and subsequent deterioration of looks." Although dental implant cost more than those other options, they present excellent value for a number of reasons. For example, they can last for life as long as patients continue to brush and floss each day and get check-ups as often as recommended. By not requiring specialized cleaning techniques, implants also save patients time on a daily basis.
Today, implants are available in a variety of forms to suit the different needs of patients who have lost teeth. When patients lose individual teeth, they can have these dental devices placed in the resulting spaces whether they have firmly rooted adjacent teeth or not. For patients who have lost all of their teeth, full mouth implants present a stable alternative to removable dentures and rarely ever require replacement. Mini implants, a newer option Dr. Sands offers, can be placed more quickly than full-sized dental implants and are less likely to require jaw bone grafting in patients who have lost jaw bone density or size.
