DENTAL IMPLANTS in los angeles
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.
WHAT TYPES OF DENTAL IMPLANT PROCEDURES ARE THERE?
An Aesthetic & Medical Solution To Missing Teeth
In the case of damaged, broken or missing teeth caused by periodontal disease and other factors, an extraction and implant procedure may be necessary to replace the old tooth or fill a gap. It is very important to treat affected areas and fill gaps in the mouth to prevent the adjacent and opposing set of teeth from shifting positions or causing further damage to the mouth. Further, because missing teeth aren’t very attractive and can affect a person’s confidence when smiling, dental implants can act as a restorative and cosmetic dental procedure. With today’s advancements in dentistry in Los Angeles, your single or multiple tooth implants will look and feel extremely natural, where most patients forget their tooth was even replaced!

Brentwood periodontists Dr. Alexandre Aalam and Dr. Alina Krivitsky are dedicated to helping their patients feel confident and comfortable, not only when they smile but also as they go about their daily lives.
Fully Edentulous Patients
Dental implants offer countless benefits for patients who are missing teeth or require dentures. They will increase your willingness to show off your smile. Patients quickly notice after receiving artificial teeth how beautiful their smiles are and how attractive their gums now appear. Dr. Aalam and Dr. Krivitsky specialize in creating natural-looking dental implants in Los Angeles that match the look and feel of your actual teeth. Many patients cannot even tell the difference between their implants and original teeth. Additionally, implants improve oral comfort and speech in a way that traditional dentures do not. As a result, you will likely feel increased self-confidence when smiling or speaking at work or social occasions.
Tooth Replacement Procedure
Dental implants are fused to the bone and offer more stability than traditional bridges and dentures. During the procedure, the implant will be inserted into the jaw to replace the tooth root. While the implant heals, your periodontist will place a temporary crown until your beautiful, brand-new custom implant is ready for permanent placement.
Many patients sense greater security with artificial teeth than other procedures because they are secured into the jaw. In order to qualify for this procedure, you must have a set of healthy gums and enough bone to support the dental implant.
In addition to their many aesthetic advantages, dental implants offer a number of benefits for your oral health. Artificial teeth allow for the replacement of one or more teeth without affecting the bordering teeth. Additionally, implants can support a fixed bridge and eliminate the need for removable partial dentures. Because dental implants are easier to brush and keep clean than dentures or bridges, they may reduce your risk of developing gum disease in the future. Finally, implants can help preserve the integrity of your mouth and face by supporting gum and jawbone structure.
