Repairing Your Teeth – The Dental Implant

Five years ago I was faced with the daunting task of locating a Beverly Hills dentist near where I lived to work out how much money my teeth would cost me to repair after about ten to fifteen years of neglect. I have been a smoker, and didn’t floss. I had helped my own Mother spend about 10k on her mouth about five years before she died – and I decided when I attempt task some twenty-five years earlier – within my fifties – I could have at least that much longer to savor the outcomes of the money I can have used on my dental restoration.

Around this same time I received a marketing call from a Los Angeles dentist who promised free teeth bleaching and whitening if I came set for a consultation. An ideal solution, as I knew that having quit smoking, this may you should be the secret to produce my teeth look better and keep cigarettes out of my mouth in the future. I took the plunge and went in to one of the offices owned by Los Angeles-based Dr. Bijan Afar, an oral surgeon. I also looked him on the Internet using the words, « cosmetic dentist los angeles. »

My teeth required deep cleaning which could only be performed one half of the mouth at any given time, and would also require irrigation with antibiotics afterwards to greatly help my gums heal Veneers Los Angeles. I found that I would require an implant to displace a decaying baby tooth, which had never come out. Several molars would require crowns, as would my three front teeth. I had dental crowns on my two front teeth since an accident in high school, and since dental veneers were new in those days, I had one put over a break in an eye tooth in my own late twenties. And as a result of years of chewing, my chompers weren’t as straight as in my own youth.

The first step within my treatment plan was to put crowns on three of my molars. Sometimes called caps, this procedure covers teeth which were severely damaged, decayed, chipped, discolored or misaligned. The process required two visits per crown.

Almost as I was ready to have the front teeth done, I obtained a tooth infection because baby molar and it had to go. Before the tooth being pulled, Dr. Afar gave me antibiotics, and the extraction went smoothly. He packed my tooth and sent me home with a prescription for pain killer to soothe the pain that night, along with his cell contact number just in case I needed to speak to him.

An expert in dental implants in Los Angeles, Dr. Afar then planted the post deep into my jaw bone, first grafting some synthetic bone powder onto the bone to produce lacking bone tissue. This could eventually serve as the foundation for the screw in implant tooth. Healing time? Three months. Depending on the patient, dental implants will take anywhere from several months to per year or more.

As an oral surgeon, Dr. Afar carefully explained the procedure. The height and width of your jawbones are measured to ensure there’s enough bone to carry the implant. Next the gums are examined for signs of periodontal gum disease, and in cases when this really is present they have to be treated first before implants can be placed. Gums may also be checked to make sure there’s enough firm tissue to surround the implant. Imaging tests may also be the main dental evaluation, which makes it possible to find out more abut the number and quality of bone in the mouth, and to see parts of the mouth and head that cannot be seen during an examination.

Dr Afar explained possible risks and complications including a bleeding gum, infection, and failure of the implant where in actuality the jawbone doesn’t fuse to the implant, and possible injury to the adjacent teeth or sinus, nerves or muscles. He explained the importance of good hygiene during the entire implant process.
