Dental Implants

EL SEGUNDO AND CARSON

In cases that involve the need for tooth extractions, a dental implant is a viable option. In addition to replacing teeth, implants can also serve as a platform to sustain other dental devices such as crowns and bridges.

Dental implants attach artificial teeth below the gum line using an anchor. The anchor holds the implant in place, allowing excess bone to fuse with it and the healthy gums to grow around it. The result is that of a strong, secure tooth that is virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Because dental implants require surgery, they are intended only for candidates with sufficient bone and healthy gums. Meticulous planning must occur prior to performing dental implant surgery. This includes a consultation, x-rays and an oral exam to ensure the success of the implant.
