Dental Implants in Los Angeles:
Dental implants are one of the most common dental procedures in the United States. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, nearly three million people in the United States currently live with dental implants, and another 500,000 implants are placed annually. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are secured into the jaw to replace lost, missing or extracted teeth. These tooth roots support the permanent restorations, also known as artificial teeth, which complete patient’s smile and look, feel and function just like real teeth! Dental implants are the optimal solution for patients looking for a permanent option to replace missing teeth and to restore their smile and confidence!
Although life may encompass a lot of uncertainty, one thing is for sure; your ability to smile, laugh, speak and eat with a complete set of teeth is absolutely crucial to one’s ability to navigate day to day life. Dental implants are a permanent solution to sustain a functioning set of teeth and life-long comfort. Dental implants are an optimal solution for restoring a beautiful, healthy smile, and replacing the high-maintenance, inconvenient and messy routine needed to maintain dentures. With dental implants, patients receive a permanent tooth or set of teeth that function just as real teeth, to completely rejuvenate their smile, oral health and overall confidence!
Each patient has their own unique case, which is why no two dental implant cases are alike. At the CENTER for Advanced Periodontal and Implant Therapy, Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky provide personalized solutions and thorough care, coupled with an expert diagnosis and custom treatment plans to meet the individualized needs of each patient. Depending on each patient’s case, Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky will correctly diagnose the patient to determine the best course of action to restore their smile and help the patient achieve optimal oral health.
Dental implants are a simple solution to replacing missing teeth. If you are looking to replace lost or broken teeth with permanent dental implants, you must maintain healthy gums and possess enough bone density to support the implant. For patients who experience bone loss where the bone is too weak to sustain multiple implants, you may require a bone graft, or could benefit from graftless solutions such as Zygomatic Dental Implants or the All-On-Four procedure.
