The CENTER for Advanced Periodontal & Implant Therapy is Brentwood’s top provider of tooth implant procedures. Los Angeles patients flock to the CENTER for treatment by board-certified periodontists Dr. Alexandre-Amir Aalam and Dr. Alina Krivitsky, who also serve as professors at the prestigious Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry USC.
The Tooth Implant Procedure
Tooth implants are fused to the bone, offering great stability. First, the tooth implant is inserted into your jaw to replace your original tooth’s root. Your CENTER periodontist will place a temporary crown while your new implant heals. IV Sedation Therapy is available to help you relax during the tooth implant procedure process.
Why See a Periodontist for Tooth Implants?
Like your dentist, a periodontist must complete dentistry school before beginning to practice. However, our board-certified periodontists have additional specialized training in dental implant therapy and periodontal procedures involving the gums and bone. They are uniquely qualified to place your dental implants in Brentwood LA because of their deep knowledge of the gums and underlying bone.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Dental implants are on the rise because they are long-lasting, easily cared for, and completely natural replacements for missing or lost teeth. Unlike dentures, they rarely require adjustments. In fact, you care for dental implants the same way you care for your regular teeth: with regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups. Likewise, although dental implants are more costly than dental bridges, they are a much better value because they do not disturb the surrounding teeth. Unlike implants, which fit perfectly with your natural teeth, dental bridges often require that surrounding teeth be filed to make room for the new bridge. This process may promote gum disease and decay over time.
