Dental implants are considered one of the best long-term replacements for missing teeth and provide the greatest improvements to dental function, oral health, and smile aesthetics. Due to their unique properties, dental implants can successfully and permanently replace any number of missing teeth. It is important to find the most qualified team to complete your dental implant treatment, especially if you desire to replace a full arch of missing teeth. At 818.DENTIST, we have an oral surgeon with over 20 years of experience on staff who has achieved the highest level of training in dental surgical procedures, administration of anesthesia, and dental emergency care. For your dental implant placement, there is no better or more qualified specialist in the field of dentistry than oral surgeons, and we are pleased to offer this standard of care at our Van Nuys, CA office, along with comprehensive restorative and follow-up care from our experienced dental team. We encourage you to learn more about what you can expect with dental implants at our office here, then schedule your consultation with us!
We begin all our dental implant treatments with a comprehensive consultation. At this appointment, we provide a thorough evaluation of your mouth, panoramic x-rays, a review of your dental and medical history. When we determine your current oral condition, we will help you decide the option and treatment plan for your health needs, financial situation, and smile goals. Since adequate jaw bone is needed for successful dental implant placement, we also evaluate the density and volume of the bone to determine if you need bone grafting before getting implants. While you are preparing for your scheduled surgery date, our team is finalizing treatment plans and designing surgical guides that greatly increase the accuracy and precision during your implant placement.
We complete all aspects of your dental implants treatment in-house at our Van Nuys, CA office and with a single team consisting of an oral surgeon and dentists skilled in cosmetic dentistry. Together our highly experienced team streamlines your implant treatment process and provides personalized care every step of the way. On the day of your surgery, we will administer local anesthetic and provide additional sedation if needed. When you are comfortable and fully numbed, we strategically place your dental implants into your jaw bone. In many cases, we can extract teeth and place dental implants at the same appointment!
Many of our patients are candidates for same-day full arch dental implants, a treatment process that lets them leave our office the day of surgery with a full set of temporary teeth! This “four-visit, one-surgery” process can commonly be completed in a matter of months, allowing patients to receive their permanent prosthesis following their check-up three months after implant surgery. If a patient is a candidate for our conventional full arch treatment, the process is longer, but the goal remains to provide them with a set of permanent, functional, and beautiful new teeth. No matter which pathway is best for you, we have the training and expertise to take you from a failing dentition to a fully restored smile that can last your lifetime!
