Dental Implant Questions to Enhance Your Knowledge

Posted .

Losing a permanent tooth can reduce the appearance and efficacy of your smile, but at Beverly Hills Periodontal Arts and Implants we offer tooth replacement such as dental implants to effectively replace your smile. We answer some common dental implant questions below to help you determine if your smile can benefit from this treatment.

What are dental implants?
These dental restorations are placed in the jawbone. They are comprised of titanium posts covered by dental crowns that are custom made so that the end result can look and feel like your natural teeth.

How does a dental implant work in your mouth?
Because the nature of dental implants is very simple, they appeal to many patients who are looking to replace missing teeth. You will need to visit Beverly Hills Periodontal Arts and Implants a few times, with the first step being a thorough oral exam to ensure your mouth is healthy and the dental implant can be supported by the jawbone. Then, we place the titanium post in your gums and allow a period of healing before following up with a dental crown. The completion of the process yields lifelike results that will seem identical to your natural teeth.
