NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Sept. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NoHo Dentist, Dr. Bijan Afar, is offering dental implants to replace lost teeth. Many people are missing one or more teeth by midlife. Unfortunately, tooth loss can have a significant effect on a person's self-image, and it can also be detrimental to a person's physical and dental health. Once a tooth is lost, the remaining teeth can shift and become more prone to cavities and gum disease.
Dental implants are generally considered the gold standard of tooth replacement. They replace both the crown and the root of the missing tooth for a more natural prosthesis. Their design helps preserve critical jawbone mass and provides a stronger, sturdier base for the prosthetic tooth. Dr. Afar, North Hollywood dentist, can use dental implants to replace one or many missing teeth. The implant is placed in the jawbone where it fuses with the bone itself. After the implant has healed, a restoration is attached. One implant can be used to replace a single lost tooth while multiple strategically placed implants can be used to support a dental bridge or dentures.
North Hollywood dentist, Dr. Afar, can use dental implants to replace teeth that have been lost due to decay, gum disease and dental trauma. The results are remarkably natural, and the prosthetic teeth can be cleaned and used just like natural teeth. Brushing, flossing and routine cleanings can help keep oral health in good condition and reduce the risks of future dental health problems.
