Implant Dentistry

Los Angeles Implant Dentist

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
Dental implants provide several advantages over other teeth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant-supported bridges replace teeth without support from adjacent natural teeth. Other common treatments for the loss of several teeth, such as fixed bridges or removable partial dentures, are dependent on support from adjacent teeth.

Dental implants are placed in a two step process.  The first step is for the dentist to surgically place small titanium screws into the jawbone structure, and close the wounds with stitches.  In three to six months, after the wounds have closed, the patient returns to have the artificial teeth placed permanently onto the screws.

Dental implants offer more benefits than just a more aesthetically pleasing smile.  They offer improved speech and ability to chew.  Also, the naturalness of the dental implants offers more support for the jaw and gums.  Overall health of the mouth is improved and jaw disorders can be prevented with the use of dental implants.

At  the Center for Cosmetic, Implant and Neuromuscular Dentistry, dentists work with the patient to ensure that all needs are met competently and confidentially.  The staff is prideful of the level of customer service and care that is offered in the office.  At CCIND, patients are treated with respect.
