Missing teeth results in long-term problems that may require an aesthetic and functional restoration. As a highly-regarded dental implant specialist in Beverly Hills, Dr. Mahnaz Rashti employs a safe and effective solution to recover lost teeth.
Dental implants restore both tooth function and appearance. Dental implants are applicable for replacing either missing teeth or helping to strengthen restorations such as bridges.
Are you a candidate for dental implants? The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.Dental implants are intimately connected with the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth. Since periodontists are the dental experts who specialize in precisely these areas, they are ideal members of your dental implant team. Not only do periodontists have experience working with other dental professionals, they also have the special knowledge, training and facilities that you need to have teeth that look and feel just like your own. Your dentist and periodontist will work together to make your dreams come true.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
- TYPES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS• Endosteal (in the bone): This is the most commonly used type of implant. The various types include screws, cylinders or blades surgically placed into the jawbone. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures.
- Subperiosteal (on the bone): These are 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 who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.
Patients from around the world have come to Dr. Rashti to regain their smiles with her technologically advanced dental implant procedures.
Patients will receive a consultation and have their teeth and medical history evaluated. This allows Dr. Rashti to develop a specific treatment plan that fits the expectations of each patient.
Porcelain crowns provide the aesthetic restoration. These crowns are attached to the dental implant abutment and created to emulate the appearance of your natural teeth. Following the procedure, you are encouraged to schedule follow-up visits to ensure the treatment has progressed as expected.
