Dental Implant Procedures in
Is your self-confidence affected by missing teeth? Are you uncomfortable while wearing dentures? Are you hesitant to have good tooth structures eliminated to make room for a dental bridge?
Dental implants represent a common and effective method of replacing missing teeth, being designed to blend perfectly with your natural teeth.
What does a dental implant surgery in LA involve?
During a dental implant surgery, our periodontist replaces the missing tooth roots with screwlike, metal posts and then installs artificial teeth which function and look the same as the real ones.
A dental implant surgery is often recommended for patients who do not want to wear dentures or cannot have bridgeworks.
The type of dental implant required and the condition of the patient’s jawbone influence how a dental implant surgery is carried out.
The most important benefit of dental implants is the fact that they confer solid support for the artificial teeth. However, the healing process requires time, because the bone has to heal tightly around the implant.
Types of dental implants performed by our LA periodontist
Dental implants can be:
- Endosteal (in the bone): this is the most popular type of dental implant. Every implant sustains one or several teeth. It is commonly used as an alternative option for patients who have bridges or removable dentures;
- Subperiosteal (on the bone): they are installed on top of the jaw with the posts of the metal framework extending through the gum to sustain the prosthesis. They are mostly utilized for patients who cannot wear usual dentures and with minimal bone height.
Please contact our LA periodontist if you would like to know more about dental implants or if you would like to schedule a consultation with him.
