Dental Implants in Beverly Hills, CA

If you’re missing one or more teeth, Joshua Ayoub, DMD may recommend dental implants to restore the full function and aesthetics of your mouth. Dental implants are the only permanent tooth replacement option with long-lasting results. Unlike other tooth replacement solutions that install a crown to sit on the gums, and sometimes supported by adjacent teeth, tooth implants are installed surgically by placing an artificial tooth root into the jawbone that supports the crown above the gums, creating a replacement tooth that is just as strong as your other natural teeth.

Dental implants have many benefits compared to dentures or bridgework, including:

  • Last a lifetime with virtually no maintenance
  • Have a natural look and feel
  • Easy to clean like your natural teeth
  • Standalone restoration - they don’t need to be supported by adjacent teeth so no damage will be done on healthy teeth
  • Fills a gap between teeth, which prevents adjacent teeth from shifting
  • Strong and firm for optimal chewing efficiency
  • Stimulates the jawbone, which is necessary to maintain your facial structure and prevent premature aging

What to expect with Dental Implants in Beverly Hills, CA

First, Dr. Ayoub will determine whether you’re a suitable candidate for tooth replacement with implants. Some of the requirements include:

  • Healthy teeth and gums in surrounding area
  • Well managed chronic health conditions to ensure successful surgical procedure
  • Sufficient bone tissue where the implant will be surgically placed. If you don’t have enough bone tissue, Dr. Ayoub may recommend bone grafting to facilitate new bone growth before implant placement

If you qualify for the procedure, a small titanium post will be surgically placed into the jawbone, to function as an artificial tooth root. It takes several months for the post to bond with the surrounding bone tissue, after which an abutment can be connected above the gums to anchor your custom-made crown
