LOS ANGELES, Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Angeles dental implants expert, Dr. Kevin Sands, recommends dental implants as the most natural-looking tooth replacement option available today. Dental implants are increasingly becoming the preferred method of tooth replacement. Periodontal disease, extensive tooth decay, infection and dental trauma can all lead to tooth loss, but tooth loss can have lasting repercussions that include an increased risk of dental disease, misalignments, inability to eat certain foods, self-consciousness and bone and tissue loss.

When a tooth is lost, the bone begins to resorb around the socket of the missing tooth. Over time, the bone loss can be quite extensive and may trigger further tooth loss. Dental implants fit into the socket of the missing tooth and act as the root of the restoration tooth. They are designed to stimulate the jawbone while offering a strong, sturdy, permanent restoration.
If a dental implant is used to replace a single tooth, a porcelain crown, which looks just like a natural tooth, is attached to the implant's abutment. Implants and porcelain crowns can be used to replace multiple teeth, or strategically placed implants can be used to support dental bridges or dentures to replace multiple teeth. They can be used alone or as part of a smile makeover or full mouth reconstruction.
While dental implants are the healthiest, most natural-looking restoration, they may not be the most appropriate choice for every patient. Each patient has unique dental health needs, and Dr. Sands, Los Angeles dental implants expert, considers these needs and his patients' goals as he is designing their treatment plans.
