What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are biocompatible titanium posts. These posts are placed inside your jawbone during a carefully planned surgery. As your gums and bone heal, the tissues will seal around the posts, and they will become permanent fixtures in your mouth. Once healing is complete, our doctors can attach a crown, bridge, or denture to the top of the posts.
Planning Your Implant Placement
Our doctors will use extremely precise techniques when determining the best positions for your implant posts. To gather the most accurate data, Redondo Beach Dental Group uses CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics), iTero®, and cone beam imaging systems. These devices create three-dimensional maps, which can be transferred to a computer. We can even import “virtual crowns” into the x-ray image to show you what your smile will look like after treatment is complete.
The Surgical Process
To begin treatment, our doctors will numb your gums and jawbone. When you are comfortable, they will make tiny incisions in your gums. Through these incisions, they will place the implant posts in your jaw. Typically, they will place them in the center of your bone for maximum stability.
Types of Dental Implants
Our doctors can perform more complex implant placement surgery. For example, if you have a diminished bone structure, he can place implants using a surgical stent and a computer-guided jig that will fit over your teeth. They can also build up your jaw structure with bone or chin grafting. During these procedures, they will use your own tissues or a synthetic material to increase bone volume.
If you are going to receive a full implant-supported denture, our doctors may recommend the advanced All-on-4® system. This method uses four small implant posts set at an angle to support the entire restoration. Because the posts have a smaller diameter, they affect less of the surrounding tissues, and the treatment involves minimal recovery time. Our doctors can also use advanced LOCATOR® Attachments to fix your denture to your implant posts. These ball-and-socket attachments put less pressure on your jawbone, and they are more stable than abutment pieces. The cost of LOCATOR® Attachments is similar to traditional implant abutments.

They have been recognized for their knowledge and experience, and they are proud members of three major implant associations, including the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
