Dental Implant Placement Los Angeles, CA
Your parents may have grown up with dentures, but now you have a great new option: dental implant placement in Los Angeles, CA. Unlike dentures, dental implants won’t slip and slide or make noise. Dental implants are false teeth that look exactly like your own teeth, but don’t decay like your own teeth. Dental implants can replace one tooth or several.
Before a dental implant placement, you’ll likely need to have X-rays and 3D images taken to make sure you have enough jawbone to hold the implant, which is literally screwed into the bone. If your jawbone isn’t thick enough or is too soft, then you may need a bone graft done before getting a dental implant.
A bone graft creates a strong area for the implant. Once that issue is taken care of, you will be ready for dental implant placement, which is an outpatient treatment that is performed in stages.
For the first stage, an oral surgeon will cut open your gum and drill a hole into the jawbone where the dental implant metal post will be placed. The oral surgeon will give you a painkiller so you should not feel much, if any, pain. The metal implant post will be the new “root” for your future new “tooth” (the implant).
Dr. Shervin Molayem will ensure you get very comfortable with the process. Schedule for a consultation today (424) 382-0290
