If you have lost one or multiple teeth or have damaged teeth that should be pulled and replaced, dental implants maybe your best option. While dental implants solve the obvious cosmetic issues that come with a hole in your smile, they also are important for maintaining the positioning of your teeth. Having spaces in your mouth may cause your remaining teeth to shift over time, which may result in crooked, angled, or painful teeth. They also get more periodontally involved as they shift and collapse into a space. Dental implants allow a very accurate crown fit, and often are a better alternative than what bridgework or dentures might provide, as they will not move or cause bone damage. Dr. Kassabian places her own dental implants and uses Straumann dental implants which are recognized in the industry as one of the most trusted and best researched and tested worldwide.
