Do you have a single missing tooth, or do you have major gaps in your smile as a result of gum disease and other complications? Your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist offers several types of dental implants, from individual ones to a full smile in one day. Which one will you need, and what benefits do they offer when compared to removable options?
A dental implant is a unique tooth replacement option that not only looks natural, but can stimulate the growth of bone tissues in your jaw, while also providing a durable chewing surface. The key to the success is the angle and position of placement. In today’s blog, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist explains how we guide the process with advanced technology.
Gum disease is one of the most common oral concerns out there, affecting a little over 3 million adults in the United States. What’s more, many individuals experience the negative effects of the disease due to not knowing when to seek help. These effects can cause separation of teeth and the tissues that house them, inflammation and bleeding gums, infection to the point of needing an extraction, or even teeth falling out on their own. While this process sounds particularly harsh and concerning, you may actually be able to prevent it if it is caught early enough. Fortunately, your Woodland Hills, CA dentists at Woodland Hills Dental Arts are here to help you prevent future harm.
When a cavity develops, you may need a dental filling. But what if a tooth becomes infected? To avoid worsening pain or even tooth loss, you need an endodontic procedure known as a root canal. In today’s blog, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist discuses the value of a safe and comfortable root canal procedure.
We offer a host of restorative treatments with a single goal: Prevent the loss of a tooth due to issues like decay, infection, or injury. However, sometimes issues arise that cannot be addressed with restorative care. To prevent complications, the tooth may actually need to be removed! In today’s blog, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist will look at the extraction process.
Sometimes preserving your oral health and hygiene comes down to extracting a compromised tooth, however, this is not the case for most dental concerns. In fact, removal is often the last resort, as steps are taken beforehand that can preserve your smile. When you experience a chip, crack, gap, or stain in your tooth, your concern can be addressed thoroughly and efficiently, and in some cases, only require a single dental visit. Your Woodland Hills, CA dentist at Woodland Hills Dental Arts can take care of any unsightly blemish with the use of dental bonding and contouring.
While it is definitely not preferred, extracting a tooth or losing a tooth as an adult can at times be necessary when it comes to preserving your oral health. In fact, leaving a diseased oral structure in tact can actually do much more harm than help. After the removal, however, it is important to note that your battle is not over just yet, as leaving a gap in your smile will cause multiple complications including function, further infection, and of course cosmetically. For these reasons, your Woodland Hills, CA dentist at Woodland Hills Dental Arts wants you to be informed of the reasons behind replacing a tooth.
While minor tooth loss can be addressed with a bridge, what about cases in which a person loses most, or all, natural teeth? To help people with several missing teeth enjoy a full and functional smile again, we may suggest a set of dentures. In today’s blog, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist will explain how we design and craft full, partial, and even implant-secured dentures.
When you suffer the loss of one or more teeth, whether due to injury or poor oral health, this impacts more than just the attractiveness of your smile. Over time, tooth loss is linked to an array of complications, from misalignment and trouble eating, to an aged appearance and further tooth loss. But by addressing tooth loss with a replacement, such as a bridge, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist can help save your smile!
