Dental Implant Specialist in Brentwood West Los Angeles, CA

Dental implants are the best replacement option for your natural teeth, because they’re strong, stable, and long lasting. They have been used for decades to replace one or more missing teeth with great success, sometimes in combination with bridgework or dentures, to give you a similar look, feel, fit, and function as your natural teeth.

For patients with unhealthy natural teeth or many missing teeth in an arch, Dr. Haroun Rostami may recommend dental implants to support dentures or bridgework.

Dental implants can also be used to:

  • Fill gaps in your mouth after tooth removal to prevent your teeth from shifting
  • Restore your speech, chewing, and digestion ability
  • Restore or enhance your smile
  • Restore or enhance your facial features
  • Support a denture or bridge for added comfort
  • Resolve bite problems or joint pain due to shifting teeth

What to expect
Most patients with healthy gum and bone tissue are good candidates for dental implants. The treatment usually requires multiple visits to your dentist over a period of several months as follows:

First visit: Consultation and checkup to determine your suitability for dental implants and tooth/teeth removal.

Second visit: Surgical placement of the implant into the jawbone. Following the procedure, you should change your diet to soft and cold foods and warm soup to facilitate healing. Healing takes about 4 months.

Third visit: Placement of the artificial tooth or teeth onto the implant. During the healing process, Dr. Rostami will customize a new tooth or crown based on the size, shape, fit, and shade of adjacent teeth to give you a uniform smile. When replacing multiple teeth, one implant may be used to support a bridge or dentures.
