Escondido, CA, June 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Millions of Americans are missing one or more of their teeth, which can put their remaining teeth and their dental health at risk. When a tooth is lost, the bone around that socket begins to dissolve, and the other teeth may tip or shift into the gap. As the teeth move out of alignment, they can become more difficult to clean, and the patient's risk of developing gum disease and tooth decay increases. Dr. James Khazian, the leading Escondido dental implants expert, now offers complimentary consultation for dental implants to help patients learn more about their options.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jaw bone. They are biocompatible and allow bone growth into their micro-surface and creation of a very strong bond into the surrounding bone. This process is called "oseo-integration" and usually takes about 3-4 months to complete. Once they are bonded to bone, dental implants may support a single crown, a dental bridge, or provide retention and stability for a denture.
Although other tooth replacement options are available, none are as reliable, strong or long lasting as dental implants. The 15-year success rate of dental implants is above 90 percent.
