We understand that losing one or more teeth can greatly impact your smile and your quality of life. Missing a tooth can negatively affect your appearance, your ability to chew and speak as usual, and your self-esteem. To replace your missing teeth and restore your smile, your appearance, and your self-confidence, we provide dental implants in Los Angeles, California. A dental implant is a small post that is surgically placed in the jawbone at the location of the missing tooth. This acts as a replacement tooth root and holds the implant restoration or prosthetic in place. Because implants are created from biocompatible materials such as titanium, your natural bone tissues bond with the implant post for a stable, lasting restoration.
Once the implant post has been placed and your bone and gums have healed, our dentist will attach a restoration. Depending on how many teeth are missing and on your personal preferences, your restoration or prosthetic may be a dental crown, a bridge, a partial denture, or a complete denture. Once the prosthetics have been attached, your smile will be returned to its full function and beauty. With proper care, your dental implants can last a lifetime.
