LOS ANGELES, April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Angeles dental implant expert, Dr. Kevin Sands, offers both full and mini dental implants to patients seeking a permanent solution to lost teeth. With either of these options, patients can restore their appearance and safeguard their oral health long into the future. Both options offer advantages over other tooth replacements because they are anchored in the jaw bone, preventing jaw bone loss that can disfigure the face and cause other teeth to loosen. Mini implants, which require less jaw bone density and size than full dental implants, make dental implants possible for more patients.
Dental implants have become the preferred solution to missing teeth for their cosmetic and restorative advantages. In contrast to dentures, dental implants offer total stability that lets patients speak and eat with ease. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants stand alone in the jaw, eliminating the need to drill into adjacent teeth. A lack of hardware above the gum line means that dental implants are simple to brush and floss, supporting better oral hygiene and making patients look more natural than they would with alternative treatments. This fact is easily visible in dental implants before and after pictures. Visit http://www.dental-implant-losangeles.com to learn more.
Mini implants are shorter and smaller in diameter than full dental implants, reducing patient requirements and speeding treatment time. Patients who would require bone grafting to receive full dental implants can often receive mini implants with no such preparation. Instead of requiring three sessions as full implants do, mini implants can often be placed in just two sessions at the office of Los Angeles dental implants expert Dr. Kevin Sands. Stitches are unnecessary after mini implant placement, and a majority of patients heal completely within a few weeks.
As a Los Angeles dental implants expert, Dr. Kevin Sands offers both restorative and cosmetic dental treatments to area patients. He is an active member in a variety of professional dental organizations and uses modern technology and methods in his work, which have been featured on popular television shows in recent years. Other cosmetic treatments, including teeth whitening, dental bonding, porcelain veneers and crowns and Invisalign are also available to patients of Dr. Sands.
