Why Choose Dental Implants?
Despite advances in health care, millions of people suffer from missing teeth due to a number of concerns, including decay, gum disease, or oral trauma. While the standard solutions for many years were bridges or dentures, dental implants are fast becoming the treatment of choice for missing teeth, as they offer a more natural-looking, comfortable, and effective solution.
A dental implant utilizes an artificial tooth root as a base, providing a solid foundation for a range of replacement teeth, including bridges, crowns, and even full dentures. Implants are made of titanium and, over a period of healing after being surgically added to bone, integrate with tissue. This integration process creates an anchor for replacement teeth that is unmatched in strength, allowing your new teeth to feel as close as possible to natural teeth.
Dental Implants in Torrance with Dr. Okamoto
Dr. Okamoto offers patients a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for their complete implant treatment. For patients who require additional care before implants can be placed, such as bone grafts or sinus lifts, we have a suite dedicated specifically to oral surgery to ensure you receive the best care possible. Whether you are missing one tooth, several, or all of your natural teeth in an arch, Dr. Okamoto can help, with dental implant services that include:
• Single Teeth Replacement with Crowns and Implants
• Multiple Unit Prosthetics through Implant-Supported Bridges
• Full-Smile Restoration Using Fixed Implant Dentures
The placement process itself can be quick and easy, depending on pre-treatments and the number of implants to be placed. While the surgical aspect of implant dentistry may steer some away from this treatment, it is a comfortable procedure that can be completed in less time that many patients imagine.
Through implant dentistry, Dr. Okamoto has the ability to restore both function and aesthetics, giving patients an improved sense of confidence and allowing them to enjoy their favorite foods once again, without fallible or loose prosthetics.
