Dental Implants in Woodland Hills & Manhattan Beach
If you have ever lost a tooth, you know how difficult it can make day-to-day life. Simple things we take for granted, such as eating, speaking, and smiling, suddenly become more challenging with missing teeth. Dental implants can restore your smile, protect your health, and improve your quality of life.
At American Modern Dentistry, we believe in providing exceptional dentistry and take great care when placing and restoring dental implants for our patients. Correct placement and proper restoration can give you an implant that provides you with many years of reliable service.
We use the latest technology combined with the skills and expertise of Dr. Joel Gould and Dr. Gabe Adorjan to deliver outstanding results for our patients.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium cylinders that support a dental crown or other restoration. They are designed to complete your smile and your chewing surface. Because titanium is a biocompatible metal, it will integrate with your bone, creating a stable foundation for your single crown and can even support a fixed dental bridge or dentures.
Dental implants can replace one tooth or multiple missing teeth. Because they mimic your natural teeth, they offer stability and provide a number of health benefits.
Health Benefits of Dental Implants
When you lose a tooth, your supporting bone structure may begin to deteriorate through a process called resorption. Teeth and bone have a dependent relationship – bone supports your tooth and your tooth stimulates your bone. When that relationship is disrupted by tooth loss, your bone recedes because it is no longer needed. This can put your remaining teeth in jeopardy. They may tilt and shift as their foundation disappears.
Dental implants help to protect that relationship by preserving bone and preventing resorption. Since they fill the gap in your smile, dental implants keep your remaining teeth from shifting and preserve your bite.
If you have multiple missing teeth, dental implants can provide added stability to your dental bridge or denture. By using dental implants to support your dentistry, you can enjoy added confidence and the health benefits that they provide.
Implant-supported bridges – We can combine dental implants with a dental bridge, allowing us to replace more teeth without the need for a partial denture.
Implant-supported dentures – A few strategically placed dental implants can allow your dentures to lock into place, keeping your dentures from shifting when you speak or eat.
