Dental implants are a revolutionary way to restore your teeth, and maintain proper jawbone and gum health. The dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth root that anchors a restoration tooth and stimulates the jawbone and surrounding gum tissue to keep it healthy.
When our natural teeth are extracted or fall out and are not replaced, the gums begin to recede and the jawbone resorbs. This important function of our teeth often goes unrecognized until the patient begins to notice a receding jawline and markedly aged facial profile.
Dental implants are a proven solution to reverse the visible signs of aging from tooth loss and encourage jawbone rejuvenation. The implant is made of titanium, a body-friendly material that has minimal risk of rejection and the bonus of integrating into our existing bone structure, a process called osseointegration. After they are surgically implanted and healed, the implant heads are capped with dental crowns, a bridge, or a set of dentures.
The success and quality of your procedure depends on having a trained dentist and a superior dental lab partnered in designing and placing your dental implants and restorations. When you choose to have your implants placed by Dr. Michael Delmont, of Delmont Dentistry, you have the assurance of a doctor who is accredited by the America Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, one of just 331 practitioners worldwide to hold this designation, which is earned by rigorous exams and hands-on clinical casework.
For more than 20 years, Dr. Delmont has provided exceptional dental care to the local gay community through quality services. Additionally, Dr. Delmont’s treatment philosophy adheres to the KOIS method, which advocates advancing dentistry through science, with a focus on staying at the forefront of training to offer patients the most advanced services in esthetic, implant, and restorative dentistry.
Dental implants at Delmont Dentistry can be used for:
- Replacing a single tooth using a crown to top the implant head
- Replacing several teeth by using implant-supported bridges
- Replacing all of your teeth using implant-supported bridges, or support a full set of dentures
In this manner, your teeth will be extracted and the implants inserted to hold a span of several teeth. Since the restorations can be made of porcelain, they have a very natural appearance to real teeth, and are very robust so you can enjoy all of the foods you love without damaging the tooth.
Dental implants are an option for denture wearers who have difficulty adjusting to dentures due to ill fit or shifting plates. The dentures can be fitted to snap onto the implant heads so there is a secure hold. This also eliminates the need for dental adhesives and provides an overall easier adaptation to your lifestyle.
If you have tooth loss, dental implants through Delmont Dentistry are the solution you need to have the new smile you desire. Contact the office at Los Angeles Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for a consultation at (310) 652-7742.
