San Diego Dentist Explains Benefits of Dental Implants


San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/23/2014 -- When it comes to replacing a missing tooth, there are a number of options. However, research has shown that dental implants are becoming the most popular way to replace a lost or broken tooth.

Recent statistics have indicated that dental implants are more popular than ever before. Dr. Zerafat, a specialist in dental implants in San Diego, explains the benefits of undergoing this type of dental procedure.

Patients are choosing to have a dental implant to replace a damaged or missing tooth because they feel and look natural. Many patients cannot tolerate solutions such as dentures, and if this is the case then a dental implant could be the best choice.

Commenting on the increase in the popularity of dental implants, Dr. Zerafat of the Dentist Pacific Beach Practice, who is a Doctor of Dental Surgery at University of California San Francisco and UCLA implant Placement Restoration, stated:

“Many people now realize the benefits of dental implants and this explains why this dental procedure is becoming so popular, and for a lot of patients a dental implant will be the best and most permanent option.”

Besides the natural look and the ability to eat normally that a successful dental implant gives, there are other benefits to dental implants. One of the main benefits is that they help to protect the surrounding teeth and gum tissue from damage. An implant will also help a patient to retain a natural looking profile while other solutions such as dentures might give a more un-natural appearance.

Moreover, dental implants will last a long time and they don’t require ongoing work so there isn’t the continued expense that is associated with some other options; a dental implant will provide a permanent fix for lost or damaged teeth.

Patients who are considering implant dentistry in San Diego are welcome to call the Pacific Beach dentist to book an appointment and discuss their options.
