Implants 4 Life is a trusted dental implant provider in the San Fernando Valley. We have a state-of-the-art surgical center and in-house lab where high-quality dental implants can be created in just one day. Personalized treatment plans allow patients to chew, speak, and smile confidently with natural-looking restorations. Our dedicated team is led by Dr. Sean Ebrahimian, “Dr. E”, an experienced dental implant dentist who ensures your comfort and well-being throughout the process.
We are proud to serve patients from Toluca Lake, CA. Our Sherman Oaks office is just minutes away via the 101 Freeway. Toluca Lake has been home to many celebrities and entertainers. You’ll find the Lakeside Golf Club here, while neighborhoods such as Toluca Terrace are nearby. The famed Warner Bros. Studios is also near Toluca Lake, so the community has close ties to the local entertainment industry
Both peers and patients consider Dr. Ebrahimian a true dental expert and dental implant artist. Specializing in every aspect of dentistry, he can find ways to restore your smile and self-confidence no matter what. Dr. E received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Southern California in 1997. Trained in the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP), traditional gum surgery, orthodontics, and cosmetic dentistry, he is the founder and owner of Implants 4 Life.
Dr. E’s experience in advanced laser dentistry and oral conscious sedation ensures he’s just as capable of maintaining patient comfort as of addressing their most serious dental concerns.
A titanium dental implant is permanently fixed into the jawbone. One or more prosthetic crowns are placed on top and look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Traditional dentures can make it difficult to chew or speak, but not dental implants. These don’t slip or need to be removed for cleaning. Implants also last longer, support your overall oral health, and protect surrounding teeth and bone tissue.
Dental implants are an ideal solution for a qualified candidate. Most people who are healthy enough for a tooth extraction qualify for the procedure. If you have missing, decaying, or broken teeth and are looking for a nearly pain-free, long-lasting solution, dental implants may be right for you. Far superior to bridges or dentures, they’re also comfortable, so you won’t know the difference from your natural teeth.
We offer a complete set of dental implant services under one roof. Here is a look at our treatment process:
In addition, we offer free second opinions and concierge services in which the cost of travel to and from surgery can be covered. Financing options include medical and dental insurance or plans that spread your payments out over time. We also accept cash or credit cards.
We schedule your surgery date once we complete your initial consultation and examination and create your treatment plan. If necessary, tooth extractions, gum treatments, or bone grafts will be performed before you receive dental implants. Next:
The treatment and recovery time varies from one patient to another. But even from the start, you’ll receive a solution, whether a temporary crown or denture, that leaves you with a natural-looking smile. After dental implant surgery, you’ll need to rest for a couple of days and apply ice every 15 minutes to reduce swelling. Pain medication may be suggested or prescribed. While you’re healing, it’s important to eat soft foods, preferably chopped, ground, mashed, or pureed, for about 3 months.
While costs depend on the individual treatment plan, a single implant can cost $3,000 to $6,000. Replacing every tooth with an implant can cost up to $90,000. However, treatment options such as All-on-4 dental implants can help you save. The total cost of treatment includes sedation, extractions, removal of infected bone or gum tissue, implant placement, and temporary and permanent restorations.
The risk of infection is minimal. We advise following all postoperative instructions and taking pain medication and antibiotics as directed. Dr. E takes every precaution to reduce the risk of loose implants, infections, bleeding, and allergic reactions. He’s also careful to avoid nerve damage and sinus cavity penetration.
The treatment process requires up to 3 days in our office, but you’ll go home after each appointment. After surgery, which is a 1- to 2-hour procedure, the implant and jawbone will be allowed to fuse. Healing time varies with each patient. After tooth extractions, you may have to wait up to 3 months to receive a dental implant; patients with healthy enough gums and bone can receive an implant right away.
