Cheap Dental Implants Los Angeles
A dental implants doctor can advise patients on the many advantages of our cheap dental implants in Los Angeles. Traditional dentures can often be painful to wear, slipping and causing loud clicking sounds when eating or speaking. Partial dentures often require removal of otherwise healthy teeth as a means to secure new prosthetic ones. Bridges may even require unnecessary cutting down of the surrounding teeth, exposing them to possible decay, root canals, or fractures. This can result in even more extractions, as well as replacement with a costly new longer bridge. Dental implants, when administered by our dental implants doctor in Los Angeles, will look and feel like your natural teeth. With proper care and cleaning, your dental implants can last you a lifetime.
Our dental expert can advise you on the options for cheap dental implants in Los Angeles. The two basic types of implants are:
• The most common type of dental implants mimics the root of a tooth with an artificial replacement that is attached to the jaw bone and is supported and functions just like a real tooth. This implant is called endosteal (in the bone) and unlike bridges or partials, it replaces the entire tooth as well as the missing root. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth and helps provide support to the jaw bone and muscles and protects them from the dangers of shrinkage or atrophy. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures.
• The second type of implant is subperiosteal (on the bone) which is placed on top of the jaw with the metal framework's posts protruding through the gum to hold the prosthesis. These types of implants are used for patients unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height. A dental implant doctor can recommend the type of prosthetic that is right for you.
Cheap dental implants in Los Angeles can save you money in a number of ways: The procedure is significantly less invasive and traumatic than conventional bridges and according to patients the discomfort can be considerably less than even simple tooth extraction. Unlike removable dentures which can require replacement every 7-15 years, dental implants – with proper cleaning and care – will last a lifetime. Recovery is quick and most people return to work or school the following day (though every patient's situation can vary). In most cases your new teeth can function immediately.
