Pacific Beach Dentist Explains the Importance of Dental Implants


San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/11/2014 -- Dental implants aren’t just important for cosmetic reasons; they are also vital for health reasons. While dental implants can improve the way a person looks, Dr Zerafat, a Pacific Beach dentist, explains how dental implants can improve the quality of people’s lives and mentions the many other important reasons why a patient can benefit from dental implants.

Dr. Zerafat, the primary dentist at Dentist Pacific Beach in San Diego, states:

"If a person is missing one or more teeth they should consider a dental implant. The teeth implant looks and feels like a natural tooth. Make sure to choose a qualified, experienced implant dentist in Pacific Beach or San Diego when getting a dental implant procedure"

One of the most important benefits of a dental implant is that it can preserve bone and tooth tissues, helping to reduce the need for additional dental work in the future.

Another reason why a person might choose to have dental implants is to prevent further damage. When a tooth is lost, it can sometimes lead to damage in nearby teeth; this could ultimately lead to a person losing more of their healthy teeth. However, a dental implant can help prevent this from happening.

Moreover, oral hygiene is an important aspect of choosing to have dental implants. Dental implants are easier to keep clean than other methods of replacing teeth such as dentures.

Patients who decide to have a dental implant will also avoid putting excess pressure on other areas of their mouth. When a tooth has been lost, this can lead to an excessive load being put on the other areas of the mouth when eating; this can go on to create excessive tension, leading to pain in the jaw and the head, and even a painful condition called TMJ.

Other patients opt for a dental implant as a lost tooth changes the way a person eats. When a tooth has been lost it can affect the way a person chews, which can make it necessary to adapt the diet to compensate for the loss.

Dental implants will also improve the contours of a person’s face and allow them to look younger and maintain their youthful profile.
