Most people think of their dentist when they think of issues dealing with the mouth and oral health care But did you know that many people actually require the services of a periodontist, particularly for dental implants? Brentwood LA board-certified periodontists Dr. Alexandre-Amir Aalam and Dr. Alina Krivitsky are experts in placing dental implants for patients suffering from tooth loss.
What is a Periodontist?
A periodontist is a mouth specialist who works with the gums and bone tissue that support your teeth. They undergo extensive specialized training after receiving their dentistry certification.
Improper oral hygiene can invite a host of diseases into the mouth, including gum disease, a disease that affects half the US population. Gum disease can lead to health problems not only in the mouth, but can affect how heart disease, diabetes, and kidney disease progress in the body.
At the Center for Periodontal & Implant Therapy, we are dedicated to fighting the prevalence of gum disease and repairing its damage. We provide excellent and specialized oral health care treatments to our patients suffering from aesthetic or functioning issues with their teeth.
Brentwood LA Dental Implants on the Rise
One of our most popular procedures at our Brentwood, LA office is dental implants also known as tooth implants, a permanent solution for patients who are missing teeth. Other methods of replacing missing teeth generally do not last as long or look as natural.
Dental implants consist of a titanium anchor that is surgically implanted into the existing bone tissue where the missing tooth creates a gap. Once the anchor has time to set into the bone tissue, a custom-made porcelain crown is screwed in place.
Dental implants blend in with your natural teeth and require the same methods of cleaning and care: flossing, brushing and regular dental check-ups.
