An implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental prosthetics may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
Missing teeth can be embarrassing, causing people to hide their smile and lose their self-esteem. The space created by missing teeth can easily become infected with bacteria, causing other teeth to shift out of place, and making it difficult for people to speak or eat correctly. Dr. Ben Javid and the staff at Promenade Dentistry in Santa Clarita are sensitive to the hardship a missing tooth can create. We provide dental implants so that our patients can regain their self-confidence, improve their health, and approach life boldly.

The Process of Installing Implants
If one or more of your teeth have fallen out, you may qualify for dental implants as a way to permanently replace the missing teeth. In order to find out, schedule an appointment with our Santa Clarita dentist office by calling (661) 347-1950. Dr. Javid will examine your mouth and jawbone to determine if the procedure is right for you. Before you can get started, your gums need to be healthy, and your jawbone needs to be strong. If Dr. Javid identifies any cavities or signs of gum disease, this will need to be treated first.
Once you are cleared for the procedure, the staff at Promenade Dentistry in Santa Clarita will take an impression of your mouth so that the new teeth can be created in a dental lab. Each tooth will be made to match the size and shape of the surrounding teeth along with having a perfect color match. This way your smile will appear completely natural once done. Patients throughout CA are delighted with the results since no one can tell the difference between which teeth are real and which ones are synthetic.
Teeth restored with implants can’t get cavities! A replacement tooth, or crown, doesn’t decay like a natural tooth, but you still must brush, floss and care for it and your surrounding natural teeth and gums in the same manner as natural teeth. Regular professional cleanings and dental check-ups also are essential.
In order to care for your implants, we advise patients throughout California to brush and floss their teeth throughout the day like they normally would. Additionally, it is important to schedule dental exams and cleanings with Dr. Javid at least twice a year. The staff at Promenade Dentistry in Santa Clarita will help to clean your teeth and ensure that they stay healthy. This step is incredibly important because while dental prosthetics cannot become infected themselves, the teeth around them can. If in the future, you suffer from a severe case of gum disease or a dental abscess, the infection can spread into your jawbone. This puts your implants in jeopardy because in order to stay secure, the jawbone must be in good health. If it becomes infected, your dental prosthetics and all of your teeth will be in jeopardy.
In order to find out if implants are right for you, call (661) 347-1950.
