Dental implants in Los Angeles
If you have a tooth to replace, several, or even all of them on your upper or lower jaw, the optimal solution is the placement of our dental implants in Los Angeles
. Here at Whittier Dental Group, if you're a good candidate for them, you'll have new teeth that look, feel, and perform like natural teeth, and without the drawbacks of traditional bridges and dentures.
Eligibility for our dental implants in Los Angeles is mostly focused on your gums and your jaw bone. You need healthy gums and a strong jaw bone because an implant does not rest on top of your gums like old-fashioned restorations do. They are anchored beneath the gum line, directly into the bone structure. This is the feature that gives them their benefits. They are constructed to mimic the qualities of your real teeth. If your jaw bone does not measure up to the required standard, you can still get our dental implants in Los Angeles. You would simply need a bone grafting procedure, in which bone is harvested from another part of your body and then transplanted into your jaw. New bone tissue is stimulated to grow around it. The result is a more supportive and reliable bone structure that will support implants. As part of the qualification process, our implant dentist will take a medical history and ask you about diseases such as type 1 or type 2 diabetes, which could have an affect on your eligibility. Smoking might also present interference. Fortunately, these concerns are not going to automatically disqualify you. And with up to 98% of implant procedures being successful, along with them being long-lasting (perhaps for a lifetime with proper care), it's easy to see why they're so sought after. They can even be used as a foundation for a more advanced type of bridge or denture.
