(Newswire.net — January 28, 2015) Tustin, CA — Dental implants are titanium roots that are used to replace a person’s missing teeth or secure his or her loose dentures. Implants function as natural teeth and feel natural to the wearer. Implants stimulate the patient’s jaw bone and work to prevent bone loss that often occurs after tooth loss. Implants, however, can require some acclimation for the new user, and Dr. Ramyar Elyassian located in Tustin, offers some advice.


Dental implants, as seen at http://irvinetustindentalimplants.com/, have become an increasingly popular alternative to dentures and bridges. Unlike dentures, implants offer permanent fixed replacements without the hassle of regular removal for cleaning, adjustments for sore spots, and relines for denture loosening. However, as Dr. Elyassian states, because implants function like natural teeth, a patient has to care for them as he or she would natural teeth. This means brushing, flossing, and rinsing them daily, as well as professional cleanings and examinations as necessary. Dr. Elyassian can also provide a special type of brush for implant care.


As a provider of dental implants to patients in and near Irvine, as seen at http://irvinetustindentalimplants.com/dental-implant-specialist-in-irvine-ca/, Dr. Elyassian and his staff provide information to prevent damage and loss of implants once they are secured into the patient’s jaw. The basic measure of prevention is the one many would consider the most obvious: communication with and listening to the periodontist. Sometimes an implant may feel loose or have some sensitivity around the gums; this will likely not happen, but it is important to report this and similar occurrences to Dr. Elyassian as soon as possible. Such precautions are most important very soon after the implant procedure is completed.


When a person is seeking dental implant treatment in Tustin, as seen at http://irvinetustindentalimplants.com/periodontal-gum-flap-surgery/, he or she should discuss the entire procedure with Dr. Elyassian and schedule the appointment as he advises is most prudent. There are some post-surgery measures that are vital to the long-term success of implants. There is no need to bring another person to drive you to and from the appointment but you may do so if you wish. Dr. Elyassian instructs his patients to follow certain post operative instructions. You should avoid smoking and drinking alcohol, as well as plan to stay on a soft food diet for 7-10 days after surgery. Dr. Elyassian will call you the night of surgery to discuss any specific questions or concerns you may have. All of Dr. Elyassian’s patients will have his cell phone number and 24 hour access to him in case of any post operative concerns.
