What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial teeth placed into your jawbone designed to seamlessly repair your smile. Implant-supported restorations mimic the function of your original teeth, allowing you to eat, drink, and speak as you normally would. Dental implants are made of three parts:

  • The post is surgically inserted into your jawbone to act as your new tooth root.
  • The abutment is the piece that connects the post to the restoration.
  • The restoration is your new crown, bridge, or denture.

Our Pretreatment Options

If our dentist determines during your consultation that your mouth is not currently healthy enough to support a dental implant, we may recommend you undergo pretreatments to improve your jawbone and gum health. Our dentist proudly performs all pretreatments in-house to provide you with a seamless treatment plan. The pretreatments we offer include extractions when saving your tooth isn't possible, gum disease treatments to restore your gum health, and sinus lifts or bone grafts to increase space and enhance your jawbone density to ensure your jaw is strong enough to support your implant.

Our Torrance Dental Implants

We aim to offer you a dental implant solution that enhances your smile and improves oral function. Our office provides you with multiple dental implant options to ensure we have the correct solution for your unique dental needs. We take the time to understand your goals for your smile and develop a customized treatment plan designed specifically for you. The dental implants we provide include:

  • Single-Tooth Crowns: We offer crowns for single dental implant procedures. A single post is inserted into the jaw, and a crown is placed on top to serve as your new tooth.
  • Bridges: Our office offers dental bridge restorations if you are missing two or more teeth. Two dental implants will be placed on the outer gaps of your teeth to support the bridge.
  • Dentures: Our team will use dentures if you have full arches of missing teeth. They are secured by attaching them to six to eight dental implants.

All-on-4 Implants

Our office is committed to providing state-of-the-art dental care by offering All-on-4 dental implants. This revolutionary technique is designed for individuals missing a complete upper or lower set of teeth. During the process, we will use only four implants to support the entire upper or lower arches of teeth. By using only four implants, you will experience faster healing times and be able to get back to your daily life even faster. During your dental implant consultation, our dentist will examine your oral health to determine if you qualify for this procedure.
