Beverly Hills, CA, July 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tooth loss affects many people over the age of 35. Between 21 and 35, nearly a third of people experience the loss of at least one tooth. Seniors are even more affected, with nearly one-fourth of them missing all their teeth. Although gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, tooth decay, diabetes, heart disease and smoking can all increase the risk of tooth loss. Dr. Kevin Sands, Beverly Hills dentist, offers dental implants.
Dental implants are one of the safest, healthiest tooth replacement options that are available today. Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kevin Sands, can use dental implants to replace one lost tooth or a smile full of teeth. They fit into the sockets of the missing tooth where they fuse with the jawbone over a period of weeks or months. Once the jawbone has healed around the implant, an abutment is placed. This abutment will be used to support the prosthetic tooth, which is often a porcelain crown. Dental implants can also be used to support dental bridges or dentures when multiple teeth are missing.
Tooth loss can significantly affect a person's self-confidence and lead to impaired social functioning. Patients may be unwilling to speak or even smile in public. They may also have difficulty chewing healthy foods, such as fibrous vegetables and fruits or whole grain products. Speech problems can also occur. Replacing a lost tooth can prevent these complications and restore the ability to eat, smile and speak fearlessly. Beverly Hills dentist, Dr. Kevin Sands, offers several tooth replacement options, including dental implants.
