What is the Purpose of a Dental Implant?
Tooth loss can be one of the most devastating experiences. What do people see first when you meet them? People see your smile first. So, when your smile isn’t up to par, you feel less confident when meeting new people. Tooth loss affects the appearance of your smile by leaving a gap in your mouth. Also, there are functional problems with eating or speaking that tooth loss causes. Why are there issues with speaking or eating when you lose teeth? There are dental problems that occur from tooth loss because you lose bone in your jaw. Dental implants are an option to replace missing teeth. With dental implants, you get to restore the look and function of your smile. Trusted Tarzana dentist Dr. Kanani offers his minimally invasive dental implants procedure to his patients.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants typically contain titanium. Implants replace missing teeth and are durable and sturdy. Dental implants provide a level of security and stability not found with other dental restorations. Also, dental implants are similar to the tooth root, so they feel like natural teeth. There are also advantages to trusted Tarzana dentist Dr. Kanani’s dental implants.
Dental implants give you your smile back
Depending on the patient, a single tooth or multiple teeth can replace teeth that have become lost.
Implants replace the root of the tooth
Unlike other forms of oral restoration, dental implants replace the root or the unseen part of the teeth. Many types of oral repairs only replace the visible tooth. If the jawbone doesn’t have a tooth or root, it can begin to deteriorate. Implants will stimulate and maintain the health of the bone.
Dental implants feel natural
Because of their placement, dental implants will often feel more secure and natural. Dr. Kanani has helped thousands of patients regain their smiles through dental implants. Dental implants make patients feel like they have their smiles back.
Implants restore the function of your smile
After Dr. Kanani tops your dental implant with a crown or denture, you get your smile back. One of the benefits of dental implants is that they restore the function and appearance of your natural smile. Once your dental implants procedure is complete, you can eat, speak, and smile like normal again.
Dental implants can last forever
If you take care of them properly, your dental implants can last a lifetime.
What is Dr. Kanani’s dental procedure for painless, drill-less, flap-less dental implants?
Dr. Kanani has discovered a way to condense the outer bone into a thicker wall, creating more support for the implant. Dr. Kanani then places the implant into the newly made gap in the jaw and sutures it closed. The patient then recovers for approximately four to five months. Does four to five months sound too long? Compare that to the year-and-a-half it could take to recover from traditional dental implant surgery. That’s like over a year without enjoying a tub of popcorn at the movie theater.
The typical way of doing dental implant surgery would involve at least two operations. The amount of surgeries depends on how severe the patient’s bone atrophy is as a result of tooth loss. First, the doctor would have to create a flap. What does this mean? The patient’s gum is cut open, and a flap is pulled back to expose the bone. Then, the doctor would take his or her scary-sounding drill and drill into the tooth to make room for the implant. What does this do? Primarily, by drilling into the bone, you’re drilling out other valuable parts of the bone. Drilling becomes counterproductive because what you want to do is salvage as much of the original bone as possible.
You want to save the bone because you want to avoid having to undergo block bone graft surgery at all costs. Block bone graft surgery occurs when you take a portion of bone from elsewhere in the patient’s body or a cadaver’s body. Then, you use to insert this bone into the patient’s jaw to create more support for the new tooth. Can you say, “yikes?” It’s best to avoid having to do this surgery when you can because it’s painful and costly.
Dr. Kanani avoids painful dental implants procedures
Dr. Kanani has been practicing his minimally invasive approach to dental implants surgery for several years now. Dr. Kanani’s method is painless, and his patients are experiencing faster recovery times. Some patients have admitted they’d choose dental implant surgery over a root canal. Does this sound too good to be true? It’s not, and, it’s much more efficient and cost-effective than the traditional form of dental implant surgery.
Why are dental implants so popular?
Dental implants are among the most popular way to restore a person’s smile. They are popular for a variety of reasons. Below are some of the reasons why Dr. Kanani’s dental implants method is popular.
- Natural looking and comfortable: Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. With dental implants, patients feel more confident to smile, eat, and be social.
- Long-lasting and reliable: If you take proper care of your dental implants, they can last you a lifetime.
- High success rate: If you’re in good health, you have the best chance for successful implants.
- Eat and chew like normal again: Dental implants exist in your jaw bone like your regular teeth. They help preserve the jawbone and help you eat and chew like normal.
- Your facial and bone features improve: Dental implants also avoid the need to cut down nearby teeth for bridgework. Also, dental implants will preserve bone and significantly reduce bone deterioration that results in loss of jawbone height.
