Dental Implants in Westchester, L.A. 

At Dove Dental Spa, our team takes pleasure in providing our patients their dream smile. Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures

Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth that are surgically anchored directly into the jawbone. A specialized post made of titanium is surgically implanted into the jaw. During the healing process, the bone regrows tightly around this base. Because the dental implant is so strong, it acts as a secure platform for bridges or dentures. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!

Implants are a great way to enjoy all the benefits of dentures without worrying about dental adhesive. Dental implant users never need denture adhesive and can easily chew any food they might want. Dental implants are strong and durable restorations that will last many years. On occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear. Dr. Gerosa and his staff will take their time to review and recommend the best restoration service for you. 


Reasons You Should Get Dental Implants:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
  • Restore a patient’s confident smile.
  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues.
  • Support a bridge or denture, making it more secure and comfortable.

What Does Getting Dental Implants Involve?

Dental Implants is a multi-step process, but the team at Dove Dental Spa in Westchester, L.A. will be there to guide you through every step of the way. 

First of X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself for up to six months. Depending on the type of implant, a second surgery may be required in order to place the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place.  With other implants the post and anchor are already attached and placed at the same time.

After several weeks of healing the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor.  Because several fittings may be required, this step may take one to two months to complete. After a healing period, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.

You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene and eating habits, alongside regular dental visits, will aid in the life of your new implant.

Dental implants healing time varies from patient to patient, and can take up to six months or less. Once your dental implant is complete, and the restoration is placed, you will able to eat, speak, and smile just as you could with your natural teeth.
