Titanium dental implants are a great choice for many people who are missing one or many teeth. The implants act as the root of the lost tooth or teeth and can be restored with porcelain crowns, dental bridges or dentures for a beautifully natural-looking new smile.
Our Los Angeles titanium dental implants dentist can provide you with more information about your personal options and determine if you are a good candidate for implants.
The treatment process can be divided into three stages. During the diagnosis stage, our expert in titanium dental implants in Los Angeles will create records that allow us to accurately restore your tooth. Dental X-rays, 3D CT scans, dental impressions, and photographs may all be used as we create your treatment plan.
During this stage, we will explore your options, explain alternatives and help you make informed choices about your new smile.

The second stage is the placement stage. The implant can be placed immediately after a dental extraction, or it can be placed after the tooth has been extracted or lost and the affected area has healed. The implant can be placed in an outpatient procedure, after which the site will be allowed to heal. This can take three to four months as the jawbone fuses around it in a process called osseointegration.
The final stage of treatment is the restoration stage. Our Los Angeles titanium dental implants dentist will create a restoration that matches your own natural teeth in size, shape and color for a flattering, natural-looking smile.
Implants offer many benefits to patient who are missing teeth. Implants look, feel and function just like real teeth, and they can secure bridges or dentures without slipping or sliding. They are easy to maintain and only need regular brushing and flossing just like your other teeth. Regular dental checkups can give you added peace of mind that your dental health is right on track.
