Teeth consist of both crowns and roots. The crown is the visible portion of the tooth and is used for biting and chewing. The root anchors the tooth into the jawbone to keep it steady and secure. As people bite and chew, the roots transmit the pressure to the jawbone, which helps strengthen the bone tissue much in the same way that weight-bearing exercises stimulate other bones. When a tooth is lost, the bone no longer receives the same stimulation, and bone tissue can be resorbed, or lost.

Los Angeles dental implants expert, Dr. Sands, can place dental implants in patients who have suffered the loss of one or more teeth. The implant replaces the root of the missing tooth and helps keep the bone tissue stimulated, strong and healthy. Once the bone has integrated with the dental implant, Dr. Kevin Sands can then restore the missing tooth with a porcelain crown. If several or all of the teeth are missing, multiple dental implants can be used along with dental bridges or dentures.

Dental implants do not just restore the natural function of the tooth root but also feel and look just like natural teeth. Patients can use them just as they would their own teeth and brush and floss them with ease. The implant's special design eliminates the pinching, slipping and discomfort for which dentures are often known, and they can last for many years, which makes them an affordable, cost-effective alternative to other restorations.
