Have you been thinking about replacing your missing teeth but aren't sure which restoration option is right for you? You may want to consider dental implants. Implants feel just like your natural teeth and offer a long-lasting solution to tooth loss. Our Santa Clarita, CA, dentists - Dr. Sean Ebrahimian, Dr. Evlin Adamian and Dr. Sepehr Nassiripour - discuss the innovative restoration option.
Why choose dental implants?
Lost teeth can be replaced with these three restoration methods:
- Bridges: Bridges consist of one or more artificial teeth held in place by crowns attached to healthy teeth on either side of the bridge.
- Dentures: Dentures rest on your gums and replace all of the teeth in your upper or lower jaw. Partial dentures are removed to take the place of several missing teeth.
- Dental Implants: Dental implants replace your tooth roots and bond to your jawbone. They anchor dental crowns that fill the gaps in your smile.
Dental implants are the only option that can replace an entire missing tooth, from the roots to the crown. Because bridges and dentures only replace missing teeth above the gum line, they don't offer the natural feel and function that implants do. In addition to restoring your smile, dental implants also help keep your jawbone strong and prevent your remaining teeth from shifting. Implants are an excellent choice to replace any number of missing teeth. You can event benefit from implants if you've lost of your teeth, thanks to implant-supported dentures.
Who can benefit from dental implants?
Dental implants are a good choice for almost anyone who has lost one or more permanent teeth. Before the process begins in our Santa Clarita office, you must be in good oral and general health. If you've lost teeth due to gum disease, the disease must be successfully treated. Implants usually aren't a good choice if you currently smoke, as the habit can interfere with healing.
Good jawbone depth is essential for the success of your implant. If your jawbone isn't deep enough, you may need bone grafts before you can begin the dental implant process. Although bone grafts will add a few months to the implant timeline, the step is a particularly crucial one.

Prompt treatment of gum disease helps prevent tooth loss and painful infections. Santa Clarita, CA, dentists Dr. Evlin Adamian, Dr. Sean Ebrahimian or Dr. Sepehr Nassiripour explain how the disease can damage your teeth and gums and share information on treatment options.
How does gum disease affect my smile?
Gum disease causes a variety of unpleasant symptoms, such as swollen or receding gums, bleeding when you brush your teeth, gum pain, chronic bad breath, infections and tooth sensitivity. If the disease isn't diagnosed and treated in its earliest stages, deep pockets may start to form around your teeth. Bacteria in the pockets can damage your gums and the bones and ligaments that hold your teeth in place.
How is gum disease treated?
Treatment depends on the stage of the disease. Gingivitis, the mildest form of gum disease, can often be reversed with scaling and planing, a treatment that's also called deep cleaning. During the treatment, plaque, tartar and bacteria are removed both above and below the gum line. Rough areas of your roots are also smoothed away. Using topical or oral antibiotics and an anti-bacterial mouthwash after the cleaning will help prevent an infection.
If your gums have started to pull away from your teeth, you may need flap surgery, a procedure that eliminates the pockets and tightens your gum tissue. Bone or tissue grafts may also be needed, in addition to flap surgery. Grafts replace bone or gum tissue destroyed by bacteria.
Can gum disease be prevented?
Good oral hygiene can help you avoid gum disease. Brushing twice a day and flossing once removes plaque, a sticky film that causes cavities. Plaque eventually becomes tartar, a hard brown or gray substance that you'll see at the bottoms of your teeth. Tartar irritates the gums and causes gum disease. In addition to maintaining good oral hygiene habits at home, it's also important to visit our Santa Clarita office every six months for an examination and professional cleaning. Professional cleanings are the only way to get rid of tartar. Unfortunately, the substance is so hard that brushing and flossing won't dislodge it.

Teeth damaged by decay or other problems can still be saved. It is not always necessary to extract a damaged tooth. Two options for saving damaged teeth are root canal therapy and dental crowns. Depending on the specific problem, your Santa Clarita, CA, dentist can advise you which procedure is needed. At Pure Dentistry Kids & Adults, Dr. Evlin Adamian, Dr. Sean Ebrahimian or Dr. Sepehr Nassiripour can determine if it is possible to save your damaged tooth.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is one option for saving a damaged tooth. Inside the center of a tooth is the pulp. When pulp becomes infected, an abscess can form below the tooth root. When this occurs, extraction of the tooth is sometimes necessary. In many cases, though, root canal therapy can be performed to save the tooth from extraction. The procedure is similar to filling a cavity. The infected pulp is removed. The area is then cleaned and filled in. Following root canal therapy, the tooth will be stronger and can resume normal biting and chewing functions.
Another option for saving a damaged tooth is a dental crown. Dental crowns fit over the top of a damaged tooth and completely encapsulate it like a cap or crown. Dental crowns make a weakened or damaged tooth stronger so normal tooth functioning can resume. Teeth that have become worn down or damaged due to injury, for instance, cannot necessarily perform routine biting and chewing functions. The crown provides a strong, new exterior that can handle those functions. Your Santa Clarita dentist can help you decide if dental crowns are right for you.
Depending on the type of damage to your tooth, root canal therapy or dental crowns can preserve the tooth, strengthen it and restore normal functioning. If you have a damaged tooth, schedule a consultation with Dr. Adamian, Dr. Ebrahimian or Dr. Nassiripour to discuss your options. For an appointment, contact Pure Dentistry Kids & Adults in Santa Clarita, CA, by calling (661) 513-9393.
