If you are considering replacing missing or compromised teeth, call 818-347-1550 today and schedule your consultation with Dr. Kathy Daroee at Kathy Cosmetic Dentistry about dental implants in Woodland Hills, California.
Dental implants are a very effective way to restore your smile. A dental implant consists of two parts. The first is the titanium implant itself which our dentist surgically places in your jawbone. Titanium is very compatible with the human body and as your bite exerts pressure on the implant, your jawbone becomes stronger and healthier. The second part of the crown, which is the actual tooth replacement, sits on the implant and completes your smile. A dental implant looks completely natural and can be brushed and flossed just as your natural teeth.
You need healthy gums and a strong jawbone for implants to be successful, and depending on your oral health, you may need a gum or bone graft before you can begin the implant process. It is very important that you keep all of your post-implant appointments, follow all of your aftercare instructions and maintain good oral hygiene for your implants to be a success. Certain illnesses and medications may mean you will need to consider another restoration, so you should give Dr. Daroee your medical history during your consultation.
