The Royal Dental Practice in West Hills, California, lives up to its name. We really do treat you like royalty! And we believe that all patients, regardless of age or financial circumstances, deserve high-quality dentistry. One of the best things you can do for your smile and overall health is to fill in the gaps with dental implants. Dr. Roya Shoffet-Yaghoubian has developed extensive skills in cosmetic dentistry and provides implant restoration. So, your new teeth look just like “the real thing.” Dental implants support or retain restorations and are designed to feel natural in the mouth and function naturally for a lifetime!
Tooth loss does not have to go hand in hand with aging. Dr. Shoffet works closely with more “experienced” patients to help them preserve their natural teeth; however, should patients sustain tooth loss due to decay, gum disease, or other trauma, she recommends prompt tooth replacement.
By replacing the teeth sooner rather than later, your quality of life and overall health does not suffer. Chewing efficiency and, accordingly, healthy nutrition is maintained. Moreover, patients halt or avoid the destructive process of bone loss that occurs when teeth are lost. The jawbone relies on the teeth to maintain its height, density, and strength. When teeth are lost, the stimulation from functions such as grinding down food is lost, too. The bone eventually resorbs or shrinks. Bone resorption results in more significant problems with speech and eating. Facial tissues no longer have structural support. The lower portion of the face collapses, folds appear more prominent, and patients may look prematurely aged.
Implant-retained teeth support an attractive smile and comfortable and healthy function for life. They also prevent or stop the process of bone loss. After all, the implant is designed to replace a tooth root. These biocompatible (tissue-friendly) cylindrical-shaped posts are placed in the jaw. Once they join the surrounding tissue, the implant can best stabilize the tooth placed on top of it. A crown or bridge may be connected to one or a few strategically-placed implants to replace a single tooth or a group of teeth. Or, as few as four implants may be strategically positioned in the jaw to retain an upper or lower denture.
Since this form of tooth replacement is designed like a natural, healthy, and unaltered tooth, implant-retained crowns, bridges, and dentures keep the jawbone strong. Your attractive, youthful appearance is retained. You continue to enjoy your favorite foods and a nutritious diet. Your speech and self-esteem do not suffer due to gaps in your smile or the effects of tooth loss.
