At Artistic Dental Associates, cosmetic dentistry
options include teeth whitening and dental
implants. Implants are an ideal option for many patients who have lost all or some of their teeth.
Implants can help you regain your confidence and feel good about smiling again; they look and
feel like natural teeth. Surgical implants are a high-quality option to consider rather than bridges,
partials or dentures. Anyone who has lost one or more teeth due to injury, disease or decay may
benefit from dental implants.
A dental implant consists of a small titanium fixture that serves as the root portion of the missing
tooth. The titanium “root” is placed into the bone of the jaw and becomes a new, strong anchor
for a replacement tooth. Dental implants can replace a single tooth or many teeth.
Implants preserve the integrity of the bone and dental structure in the face and resolve all the
issues associated with the difficulties of tooth loss. Dentures can fall out, become loose or leak
messy adhesives. They can also interfere with speech and the ability to chew properly. Implants
resolve these issues and prevent tooth shifting as well. The ability to chew properly leads to
better physical health for patients, and emotional health is also improved when a patient's teeth
look good and feel strong.
Age is not a factor when considering dental implants, but a patient must be healthy enough to undergo the surgical procedure. Some chronic diseases may make dental implants impossible for certain patients. Dr. Bedi will carefully review your dental and medical history to determine if you are a candidate for implants and provide you with information about the benefits and risks of receiving dental implants at our family dental practice.
