Implants are more stable and last longer than bridges, partials, and dentures and may be your best option if you are missing teeth.
Are You Missing Teeth?
The shape and function of the mouth are greatly affected by missing teeth. Firstly, they create a cosmetic problem that can make patients feel quite self-conscious about their smile. Not only that, they can also impact the functionality of your teeth. When a tooth is missing, the teeth around it naturally start to spread to fill in the gap. Eventually, this leads to problems with your bite, which can cause pain, discomfort, and infection.
It is imperative to get a dental implant as soon as possible after losing a tooth, because this cosmetic issue can quickly turn into a medical one. When searching for an implant dentist in Northridge, look no further than Northridge Dental which offers cutting edge technology and non-metal options to quickly and safely install the dental implant before neighboring teeth have time to spread.
About Dental Implants
Over the past nearly three decades, dental implants have improved with better materials, improved procedures, and professionals who continue to expand their knowledge and experience. One implant is placed in about an hour with this state-of-the-art technology. The level of discomfort is typically mild.
Dr. Matian, an implant dentist in Encino, will discuss your options with you before your surgery. Unlike natural teeth, dental implants do not decay, and they do not require adjacent teeth to support crowns or bridges. Implants are the closest thing that science has come to replacing natural teeth. In order to maintain their health, they must be kept clean and plaque-free with proper brushing and flossing, as well as routine cleanings with Northridge Dental oral hygienists. In light of how well dental implants promote bone and gum health, they have become the treatment of choice.
The Importance of Dental Implants
Aside from improving appearance and making chewing easier, there is another important reason to get a dental implant when you are missing a tooth (or more than one). In order to maintain its density and form, the bone surrounding a tooth needs constant stimulation from its root. As the teeth transfer stress to the bone throughout the day, the bone regenerates. The multiple stresses on the bone would eventually wear it down and cause it to deteriorate if it did not possess this regenerative capability. Without stimulation, this capability would be lost.
The deterioration of the bone can cause many problems, but three main problems include: additional teeth falling out, sinus problems and an increased risk of developing gum disease and experiencing gum irritation.Above the bone that surrounds your top teeth is your sinus. This is supported by the bone. In essence, the tooth supports the bone, which supports the sinus. When the bone deteriorates, the sinus is no longer being supported and starts to sink into the area the bone would usually occupy. This causes the gums to get irritated, resulting in gum irritation and diseases.In addition, the sinking sinus can cause headaches and other sinus problems. It is not uncommon for someone to have “sinus problems” that are actually caused by tooth problems!
As a result of the deterioration of the bone and the gap in your mouth, your other teeth can start to shift. Your teeth can start to fall out – so one missing tooth can lead to many missing teeth.

Facts About All-Ceramics
In the past crowns and bridges were traditionally made of porcelain fused to metal (PFM). Today, thanks to the development of all-ceramics, which are incredibly strong and natural-looking, PFM is no longer necessary. And in the world of all-ceramics CeraRoot® and CeraCrown® is the only total metal-free solution.
