Dental Implants Gardena, CA

Are you tired of dealing with the discomfort that comes with missing a tooth? Dental implants provide an attractive and durable way to replace your tooth and get back to enjoying your life.

At Gardena Dental Care, we understand just how harmful a missing tooth can be to your overall comfort, health, and confidence. That is why we offer the best in dental implants and personalized care, so you'll leave our office with a smile you'll always feel good about.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is the process where we carefully affix an artificial tooth root (like a screw) into your jawbone. This tooth root will anchor a new, artificial replacement tooth. All our implants are crafted with long-lasting, durable, USA-made titanium.

What Is a Single Tooth Dental Implant?

A single-tooth dental implant is when a single titanium screw is placed in the jawbone to support a replacement tooth (crown). This is usually what we are talking about when we use the term “dental implant.” This treatment is used when the jawbone and surrounding gums are healthy and can support the new dental implant. Once the implant is placed, your prosthetic tooth will blend in seamlessly and work just like a natural tooth.

Can Dental Implants Replace Multiple Missing Teeth?

Dental implants can be used to replace more than one tooth, but generally, they are used for single teeth replacement or as a foundation for a bridge. So let’s say you had a tooth missing on the upper right jaw and another single tooth missing on the opposite side. We could use two separate dental implants to replace these missing teeth.

Another application of dental implants is to use them as a foundation for a dental bridge. All-on-4 dental implants are used in this manner. This is when four titanium screws are placed in a specific spaced-out pattern to support a dental bridge that replaces a full arch (row) of teeth.

Who Needs Dental Implants?

If you have a single tooth that is missing, a dental implant is the closest to having a natural tooth again. It looks and functions just like a natural tooth, without any additional visible hardware. Dental implants are an ideal solution for adults who have lost a tooth due to an accident or tooth issue. Adolescents should only have dental implants if their permanent teeth have come in already.

Dental implants are a good way to replace teeth that have become rotten and fragile. For example, sometimes a cavity becomes so invasive and painful that it’s better to have the tooth removed.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants are considered to be one of the premiere ways to replace a lost tooth, and for good reason. These sturdy implants look and act like real teeth – you won’t even know the difference! They can improve your sense of well-being and confidence and offer many benefits including:

  • Brings stability to your teeth
  • Lasts for many years with proper care
  • Helps retain the structure and strength of your teeth
  • Improves the appearance of your smile
  • Aids in preventing painful gum disease caused by bone loss

What Is the Process of Placing Dental Implants?

Initially, you will come to our state-of-the-art office for your consultation. This will include an expert evaluation from our Dr. Omid Barkhordar and the taking of any necessary x-rays. We will also take detailed impressions of your mouth to make sure your implant fits you just right.

During the dental implant placement procedure, Dr. Barkhordar and his highly qualified staff will first place a small screw into your jawbone. The jawbone and screw will fuse together over the course of a few months. This will give your artificial tooth a strong foundation. The new tooth will then finally be attached to the screw, and you can walk out of our office with a restored smile and renewed confidence.

What Is the Cost of Dental Implants?

Dental implants are generally more expensive than alternatives such as partial dentures, but for many they are well worth it. An average cost for a dental implant is approximately $2,500. This cost can usually be broken up into affordably monthly payments through our dental financing options. Dental insurance companies tend not to cover the full cost of dental implants, but it depends on the policy. Contact our front desk staff to discuss potential costs and payment options.
