Dental Implants in Granada Hills
If you are missing single or multiple teeth, or are in need of extractions, dental implants are an ideal solution to restoring a complete and healthy smile. Dental implants are titanium or zirconia posts, that are surgically implanted into the jawbone to replace missing or extracted tooth roots. These posts serve as the foundation for a permanent restoration, also known as an artificial tooth, to restore the function and look of your teeth. The artificial teeth are color-matched to blend seamlessly with the smile to create an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Because dental implants are secured into the jawbone, a patient must possess enough bone density to securely anchor the implant. If a patient is lacking adequate bone density, or they suffer from periodontal disease which has caused bone loss, your Granada Hills periodontist will have to perform a bone graft to restore the bone density needed to secure the implant in the bone. A bone graft utilizes a sample of bone taken from a donor source or different part of the patient’s body that is prepared and used as grafting material to replace lost or damaged bone in the mouth. At the CENTER for Advanced Periodontal and Implant Therapy, we are proud to offer our patients a holistic alternative to bone grafting, using the Smart Dentin Grinder to turn patients’ extracted teeth into a suitable grafting material. Depending on the extent of bone loss, as well as the number of teeth that need to be replaced, your periodontist will create a personalized treatment plan that works with your needs, preferences, and budget.
All-On-4 Dental Implants in Granada Hills
In some cases, patients who suffer from extreme tooth loss may opt for a graftless solution to replacing all or the majority of their teeth. A graftless dental solution is a treatment that avoids the need for a bone graft, by utilizing the patient’s existing bone to anchor the dental implants. The All-On-4® technique by Nobel Biocare is an ideal solution for patients suffering from edentulism, also known as toothlessness.
The All-on-4 dental implant treatment in Granada Hills is a minimally invasive technique that is perfect for patients who are missing all or the majority of their teeth. This treatment uses a patient’s existing bone density as a foundation to securely anchor the implants and restores a functional, aesthetically pleasing smile in just one day. All-on-4 implants is an innovative dental implant treatment near Granada Hills that uses a minimum of four dental implants placed in the mandible, maxilla or both. A fixed full-arch prosthesis, also known as an artificial set of teeth, is attached to the implants, and the patient leaves with a beautiful new set of teeth that look, feel, and function just like regular teeth.
In just one sitting, patients rejuvenate their smile with a brand new, healthy, fully-functional set of teeth, so that they can eat, chew, smile, and speak with ease and confidence. It is our greatest pleasure to transform the lives of our patients, one smile at a time! If you are missing the majority of your teeth and suffer from bone loss, the All-on-4 teeth in a day treatment in Granada Hills may be right for you.
