What is involved with dental implants
Most patients are surprised to learn that most dental procedures have a limited lifespan. Fillings, crowns and other fixes do not typically last forever. That is why dental implants have become so popular. As more people ask their dentist about implants, it is important to understand the process step by step in order to assess the viability for each patient.

Cost of Dental Implants

As years pass, I discover more and more that my teeth are precious commodities, requiring investments of both time and money. Not everyone can hold onto them for life. Eating foods that foster decay and neglecting proper oral hygeine are sure to leave a tooth or two — or more — behind. Just as threatening are bad genes, injuries and, frankly, aging. Needless to say that even diligence in flossing, brushing, check-ups and cleanings does not guarantee the retention of every tooth. Fortunately, dentistry, as both art and science, has advanced to the point where even tooth loss is correctable.

What Is a Porcelain Crown?

Terms like dental bridge, veneers and crowns are best understood in the context of successfully treating missing or damaged teeth.

For example, perhaps you have one or more teeth missing due to injury or disease. A missing tooth can greatly impact your oral health as well as the integrity of your jaw, your bite and your ability to chew comfortably.

For this reason, it is important to take action to stabilize the remaining teeth and surrounding jaw by filling in the space left by the missing tooth.

Often, your cosmetic dentist will recommend a dental bridge to achieve these goals. But before you can get a dental bridge installed, you may first need to have any damaged teeth surrounding the gap repaired and/or stabilized to support your new bridge.

Common procedures to repair or stabilize surrounding teeth include root canals and crowns.

In this article, learn why your Sherman Oaks dentist may recommend a dental bridge, how it works, steps to install a bridge and more.
