About Dental Implants
What are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are a valuable alternative to an uncomfortable prosthesis. The implants themselves are small screws produced from titanium that serve a similar purpose to the roots of natural teeth. They are fused to the jawbone and support over dentures and dental bridges, helping them to perform like our natural teeth would. Once the implants are put in place, your general dentist will be able to place the permanent prosthesis.
Given the numerous benefits and aesthetic qualities Dental Implants offer, they have become the preferred method of tooth replacement today.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, typically a titanium screw, that is placed into your jaw bone to hold a replacement tooth or a bridge or denture to restore multiple missing teeth. Contact Santa Monica Center for Oral Surgery & Dental Implants to help you decide if Dental Implants are right for you.
What are the benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are widely regarded as the best treatment for loose dentures. Permanent dental implants are designed to make dentures much more secure and enable you to smile, eat and talk confidently. Santa Monica Center for Oral Surgery & Dental Implants can assist you if you have been thinking about investing in implants.
The implants act as a foundation for replacement teeth. They won’t decay and are designed to last for the rest of your life. Implants can be used in conjunction with various dental procedures to improve our oral health. Once they are installed, you’re much less likely to face problems with slippage and discomfort.
What are the steps for getting Dental Implants?
The initial step is to meet with Santa Monica Center for Oral Surgery & Dental Implants for a consultation. At this consultation, the doctor and you will determine your needs, assess your oral health, review your medical history, and discuss treatment options in order to create a customized treatment plan just for you. We’ll discuss your options for sedation, which is the medication to help you relax or even sleep during the procedure. We will also discuss costs, financing options if necessary, and timing. Many times this consultation also entails review of an x-ray or 3D CT scan. This consultation can usually be finished in less than an hour. If you decide that Dental Implants are right for you and would like to proceed, you may schedule your surgery.
On the day of surgery, you’ll come to our office and go straight back to a surgical room. During the actual surgery, any teeth, if required, will be removed. Next the actual dental implants are placed in the jaw bone. Then replacement teeth are secured onto the implants. It’s important you know that you can possibly leave the office with your teeth! This is why we can say “teeth in a day.”
Following your surgery, there is a recovery period where the implants will need to heal and fully integrate with your bone and tissue before your general dentist can connect the permanent crowns, bridges or dentures. It will usually take between 3-6 months for this healing period to be complete.
Who Typically Gets Dental Implants?
Those likely to gain from Dental Implants include individuals who have actually been experiencing issues with standard dentures or simply individuals who have lost a single tooth. They make life easier for those that have been discovering it hard to chew and enjoy meals and can slow down the procedure of tissue and bone loss in the jaw. What’s more is that Dental Implants can even provide a more youthful appearance due to the manner in which they will give your facial structure a lift. They will assist you to speak more clearly.
Full Arch Treatment-Teeth In 24 Hours

What if I want to replace just a single tooth?
If you’re missing simply a single tooth, one implant and one crown can change it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root. Replacing one tooth with an implant supported crown can protect the stability of all nearby teeth and is remarkable to a conventional tooth-supported dental bridge.
