We Provide New, Permanent Crowns in Just 2 Hours
As your dentist, my goal is to help you preserve as many of your natural teeth as possible. That’s why dental crowns are so valuable; they protect your teeth for years to come. However, crowns require two office visits and busy patients often delay in getting them. If the delay goes on too long, they may lose the tooth altogether.

It’s great to have a smile with beautifully aligned teeth, but actually, that alignment has far more value than just giving someone a pretty smile. Well-aligned teeth are subject to much less stress and are much easier to keep clean and healthy. Not correcting crooked teeth can be like starting a row of dominoes falling, with the end result being loss of teeth and a negative impact on your overall health.

Invisalign: It Does Much More Than Straighten Your Teeth
Patients with misaligned or overcrowded teeth often complain to me about their smiles. They’re self-conscious about their teeth and lack self-confidence at work and in social situations. I feel for these patients, especially in today’s celebrity culture, where appearances seem to matter most.

This is a second part of the previous blog which will go over the last two key points of what to expect when getting dental implants. Read the first part of this blog here.
4. Implant Placement: When the day to start the implants arrives, we will create a slender opening in the bone and place the finely-machined titanium implant. Titanium is used for dental implants, as well as joint replacements, because it bonds more thoroughly to human bone than any other metal. We will then attach a temporary tooth to the implant and allow time for the area to heal thoroughly. From time to time, we will examine the areas that have received implants to ensure they are healing well.

Dental implants allow us to provide our patients with the best, longest-lasting and most beneficial method of tooth replacement available. If you are missing teeth, read on to learn the steps involved in receiving these beautiful replacements.
1. Consultation: We must first determine if your gums and bone are in the proper condition for implants. Your bone must possess enough mass to stably anchor implants and your gums must be healthy. A free consultation with Dr. Sabharwal and x-rays will enable us to determine your readiness.

This is the second half of our previous blog which will go over the last two crucial reasons to replace missing teeth. Read our the first half of the blog here.
3. Ability to chew: With each missing tooth, your ability to chew food properly deteriorates. If you’re missing teeth on only one side, you’ll find yourself chewing on the other side which means those teeth are subjected to extra wear and tear. Missing teeth on both sides? You’ll be unable to chew your food effectively. It will be harder to digest and you will miss some of the nutrition you should be getting.

When a tooth is lost, it’s important to replace it as soon as possible. With highly visible front teeth, many people rush to the dentist. But when it’s near the back of the mouth, that job may be put off for years or forever.
Before you come to any decision about missing teeth, you should know the reasons missing teeth need replacement, no matter where they occur.

When a missing tooth is visible in a patient’s smile, they’re typically embarrassed about their smile. And that is certainly understandable. But some patients may be unaware a missing tooth does more than detract from one’s appearance; it also jeopardizes one’s oral health. I’ll explain why.
Your teeth are rooted in your jawbone. The pressure caused by biting and chewing stimulates the bone and keeps it healthy. When a tooth is lost but not replaced, its underlying bone mass lacks stimulation and begins to break down. To make matters worse, the adjacent teeth, now without support, may shift and even loosen, requiring extraction. Finally, accumulated jawbone loss alters your facial appearance, making you look older than you are.
