LOS ANGELES, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Angeles dental implant expert, Dr. Kevin Sands, uses titanium implants to replace missing teeth. The advantages of dental implants have become more well-known in recent years, and more patients are now asking for implants over alternatives, such as dental bridges and dentures. Although dental implants can also be made from other materials, titanium is especially suited to this purpose because of its long-term durability and resistance to erosion by oral bacteria and acids. As a result, patients who choose implants receive dependable tooth replacement that can last for life with proper care.
Titanium dental implants have become the leading tooth replacement for a variety of reasons. After being placed in the jaw bone, titanium easily fuses with the local tissues for total stability. Titanium is known for its strength-to-weight ratio, which is higher than any other metal. Not only does this make titanium implants durable, but it also lets manufacturers keep implants lighter for greater comfort once placed. Like other dental implants, those made of titanium offer excellent protection from jaw bone loss, tooth decay and gum disease, independence from adjacent teeth and greater stability when paired with dentures.
When patients visit Los Angeles dental implants expert, Dr. Sands, for cheap dental implants, they can choose from a number of options based on their budget and goals. Dental implants cost more or less depending on the type chosen, the number placed and the necessity for bone grafting before implant placement. Implants are placed in stages, with varying amounts of healing required between appointments. From start to finish, placement can take as little as three months or more than a year.
