Dental implants are a modern treatment that can improve your oral health and appearance by replacing missing teeth. The implants themselves are tiny metal or ceramic posts that your provider surgically embeds in your jawbone, where they fuse with your bone tissue and provide support for a restoration like a crown, bridge, or dentures.
Dental implants effectively function as prosthetic tooth roots, replacing missing teeth with a system that’s structurally similar to your natural teeth.
With other methods for replacing missing teeth, like bridges and dentures, your prosthetic tooth sits on top of your gums instead of connecting to your jawbone. Dental implants more closely mimic your natural tooth structures, giving you a replacement tooth that feels, functions, and looks more similar to the tooth it’s replacing.
Dental implants also offer significant health benefits. Because they connect your replacement tooth directly to your jawbone, they continue to provide your bone tissue with healthy stimulation. This effectively prevents the bone loss that’s typically seen in patients with missing teeth, helping to keep your jaw strong and retain the shape and appearance of your face.
Dental implants require that you have healthy gums and substantial bone tissue in your jaw. Before you get implants, your provider at Dental Arts of Beverly Hills visually inspects your mouth for signs of gum disease and uses a CT machine or digital X-rays to assess the state of your jawbone tissue.
If you have gum disease, your provider will need to resolve it before they can move forward with your dental implant surgery. If your jawbone isn’t robust enough to support dental implants, your provider might recommend getting a bone graft before installing your implants.
When you get dental implants at Dental Arts of Beverly Hills, your provider completes everything onsite with a high level of expertise and excellence.
Dr. Dayan uses the Magnetic Mallet, a unique and innovative surgical device that allows the safe, quick, and effective installation of dental implants. The Magnetic Mallet causes less trauma to tissues during surgery, offers a faster recovery, and prevents bone loss as well as other potential side effects like BPPV.
Once your implant is settled, you can get your restoration. Your provider will take an accurate impression or scan of your mouth, then uses that to create your crown, bridge, or dentures. If you’re getting a single crown for your dental implant, Dental Arts of Beverly Hills offers CEREC® same-day crowns that they mill in the office in a single appointment.
