What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth root. It is inserted in the jawbone, and once you’re healed, an abutment is placed above it to support a prosthetic crown.

Dental implants are no longer only used to replace just one tooth. They can replace an entire arch of teeth. The implant itself is made of durable, biocompatible titanium. When the titanium fuses with the bone, it provides a strong bond that restores full dental function. Zirconia is used for crowns, bridges, and prosthetic arches; it is a durable ceramic with exceptional strength.

Depending on your needs, we can provide:

  • Endosteal Implants: Serving as direct replacements to tooth roots, they are drilled into the jawbone to secure artificial teeth.
  • Subperiosteal Implants: These are placed above the jaw but below the gum, especially in patients with insufficient bone mass for endosteal implants.
  • Zygomatic Implants: These replace teeth in the upper jaw and are implanted into the cheekbone, or zygomatic bone, to provide solid anchor points.
Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants have many benefits over dentures and other teeth replacement options. Using modern technology, we can provide custom dental restorations that:

  • Look, feel, and function like natural teeth
  • Can last for the rest of your life
  • Preserve natural bone
  • Stimulate bone growth
  • May reduce the risk of gum disease
  • Won’t slip or cause discomfort
  • Restore natural chewing ability
  • Do not interfere with speech
  • Promote a more youthful appearance
  • Can increase your confidence
Our Procedure

Every patient at Implants 4 Life begins with a consultation. We use the latest technology to accurately visualize your dental anatomy and maximize precision. The Face Hunter 3D facial scanner delivers photo-realistic imagery that helps plan your treatment. Using the Zirkonzahn CAD/CAM system, we quickly mill personalized dental restorations; it ensures a perfect fit and successful results.

Dr. E and our team also specialize in different implant procedures, including:

  • Traditional Implant Technique: A three-part endosteal implant, which resembles a screw, replaces the missing tooth’s root. An abutment is placed atop and supports a prosthetic crown. This is a multi-phase approach that can take several months to complete.
  • Guided Implant Surgery: Advanced imaging and surgical equipment are used to insert the implant at a precise angle and depth, improving the chances of success, reducing healing time, and minimizing the risk of complications.
  • Immediate Load Dental Implants: A temporary tooth is placed on the implant immediately after it is inserted into the bone, thereby providing the patient with a dental implant in one day. The procedure is best for patients with enough natural bone to support the implant.
  • All-on-4 Implants: If you’re missing all or most of your upper or lower teeth, four titanium implants can be used to support a full-arch prosthetic. Unlike dentures, it’s never removed and allows you to bite, chew, and speak naturally.
How Long Does Dental Implant Treatment Take?
During your initial visit, you’ll receive a temporary restoration and your first implant procedure will be scheduled. Implanting the titanium post(s) takes 1 to 2 hours. You’ll have to wait for the implant and bone to fuse to receive a permanent crown or bridge, which can take 6 weeks to 3 months, depending on how you heal. Typically, patients spend up to 3 days in our office and go home after each appointment.
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
Dental implants can last the rest of your life with proper aftercare and maintenance. Proper oral hygiene is crucial. You’ll need to brush and floss regularly to keep the implants in good condition. Regular check-ups allow your dentist to ensure you heal properly; they’ll also check for damage, wear, or other issues. If necessary, your dentist can replace a crown, bridge, or arch without repeating the implant surgery.

Eating soft foods while healing, following your dentist’s suggestions, and maintaining a diet that won’t stress, stain, or damage your new teeth can prevent implant failure and promote long-term success.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
Every implant procedure is different and tailored to the patient’s needs. The total cost can vary because of different treatment requirements. Some individuals require bone grafts and other treatments before receiving implants. The materials used, the number of implants, their location, and the procedure used can also affect the cost.

At Implants 4 Life, we realize not all patients can afford the cost of dental implants upfront. But we’re connected with various lenders, so you can choose from different financing and payment plans. We accept credit cards at our Sherman Oaks and Santa Clarita offices. If your dental or medical insurance covers implants, we’ll complete your claim forms and work with your carrier.

Who Is a Candidate for Dental Implants?
During your initial consultation and examination, we’ll determine the best treatment options for you. If you’re healthy enough for a tooth extraction, you should be eligible for dental implants. But, certain chronic diseases can affect eligibility, as can heavy smoking and alcohol abuse.

However, if you’ve been told you’re not a candidate for dental implants due to bone loss, there are options. These include bone grafts to replace missing bone before getting permanent dental implants. We also specialize in All-on-4 dental implants that use your existing bone density and zygomatic dental implants for more extreme forms of bone loss.

What Is Oral Conscious Sedation?
An anesthetic is used during the procedure so you feel little or no discomfort. We also offer other sedation dentistry options such as nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help you relax or IV sedation that lets us quickly adjust the level of sedation so you remain free of stress and anxiety during the procedure. General anesthesia, which helps patients sleep through it, is less frequently used.
Will a Dental Implant Match My Existing Teeth?
Each implant is custom-made in our in-house lab. Its shape, size, and shade can be adjusted so even you will have difficulty telling the new implant from your natural teeth.
How Long Is the Recovery After a Dental Implant Procedure?
Healing time differs for each patient. Some people can return to work the following day after a dental implant procedure, although we recommend resting for the first 48 hours and avoiding strenuous activity for the first week after surgery. Swelling is common after the procedure but usually starts to decrease after 72 hours, while bruising typically resolves after the first week. We also recommend a soft diet for the first 3 months of healing.
