Los Angeles, CA, June 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Sam Markzar, Los Angeles periodontist, helps permanently restore missing teeth with the help of dental implants. Whether the teeth have been lost due to periodontal disease or trauma, dental implants can provide a permanent solution.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, usually made from titanium or titanium alloy. However, the term dental implant is commonly used to refer to the artificial tooth root and the crown that is attached to it. In some cases, a bridge is attached to the implant instead of a crown.
The process for placing a dental implant requires time and commitment. However, once completed, dental implants can last a lifetime. First, Dr. Markzar, Los Angeles dental implants dentist, takes images of the jaw to determine which type of implant the patient needs. If the bone density of the jaw where the implant must be placed is not sufficient, a specially-shaped implant may be placed instead. At times, patients may require a bone grafting procedure in order to improve the bone density of the compromised area. Dr. Markzar will then intricately place the implant into the jaw. Ample healing time must be allowed for six to twelve weeks to ensure that a strong bond forms between the implant and the jaw bone. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Markzar places the crown or bridge over the implant, completing the process.
Dental implants offer several advantages over traditional bridges or dentures, according to Dr. Markzar, periodontist in Beverly Hills. Implants are very durable. However, if a patient experiences a problem with their implant, Dr. Markzar is one of the few dentists in the region who can both place and restore implants. In addition, dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from the patient's natural teeth, and can be cared for much like a natural tooth.
