If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you may be thinking about getting dental implants. At our dental practice, Michael Barmé DDS, our expert implant and restorative dentist is Dr. Michael Barmé. Many patients come to see our dentist to get Norwalk CA implants because dental implants look, feel, and function just like regular teeth.

When a patient comes to our practice to get dental implants, they may be getting dental implants to replace a single tooth, or they may be getting dental implants to anchor dentures which may shift when they talk or chew. Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth, and will help the jawbone to remain healthy. This is because the dental implant titanium root will keep the jawbone from atrophying where there is a missing tooth. This will allow the jawbone to remain healthy and keep your facial appearance more youthful. When our dentist determines that you are a good candidate for getting dental implants, he will then proceed to surgically implant a dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There will then be a waiting period of several months during which time your jawbone will fully heal and the dental implant root will completely fuse to the jawbone. Once this is completed, our dentist will permanently attach a porcelain crown to the top of each dental implant. At this point your dental implant restoration is completed and you will be able to once again eat, smile, and speak with total confidence. Your Norwalk CA implants should last you a lifetime as long issue make sure to regularly brush and floss your teeth at home, and come to our dental practice for periodic dental cleanings.

Do you want to make sure that you have healthy teeth and gums? In order to do this, you will want to have a great at-home cleaning regimen, as well as come to our office, Michael Barmé DDS, for periodic teeth cleanings. Coming in for a teeth cleaning Norwalk CA is very important in helping to retain healthy gums, and in turn healthy teeth.

Having healthy gums is very important if you want to have healthy teeth. In fact, if your gums are not healthy, there is no way your teeth can remain healthy and intact. If you develop gum disease, and it remains untreated, infection can go down to the jawbone and cause your teeth to loosen – or even fall out. In order to keep your gums healthy, one of the most important things you can do is to come in for teeth cleaning Norwalk CA. Even with the very best at-home brushing and flossing, some plaque will remain on teeth. One plaque is left to remain on teeth for even a short period of time, it will harden and turn into tartar. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance which can only be removed from teeth using professional dental cleaning instruments. When tartar is allowed to remain on teeth, it will encourage the development of deep pockets to form between the teeth and gums. Plaque, tartar, bacteria, and food debris will all gather in these deep pockets and gum infection will take hold in your mouth.

During a teeth cleaning Norwalk CA, the health of your gums will also be assessed. If it is determined that you have gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, our dentist will most likely recommend that you have several dental cleanings over the coming months so that your gums will be able to return to good health. If it is found that you have gum disease, and deep pockets have formed, you may be encouraged to have a periodontal treatment of scaling and root planing. This treatment is like a deep cleaning for the gums which will remove all infection and debris from the deep pockets, and allow the deep pockets to become smaller, and for your gums to heal. If you would like an appointment to meet with our dentist, Dr. Michael Barme, for a comprehensive dental exam, or for teeth cleaning, contact our office today.
