The Best Dental Implant Dentist in Torrance & Surrounding Areas
Dental implants are a titanium screw that is surgically placed inside the gum in place of the root. Once the implant is properly placed, overtime the natural bone in the jaw actually fuses together with the implant. Crowns and bridges, are screwed on the implant to feel, look and function like normal teeth.
Dental implant procedures typically do not impact the surrounding teeth, which makes them ideal as stand-alone replacements or multiple teeth replacements. They also last very long time, possibly a lifetime if properly taken care of, largely because they do not decay.
If you have a single missing tooth or several missing teeth, dental implants are a great option. Not replacing missing teeth often results in the teeth you do have becoming loose putting you at risk of losing more teeth. People with good strong jaw bones are ideal candidates for this dental procedure.
Treatment time and healing process vary depending on your specific case. Call Dr. Joe Dentistry to schedule a free consultation today.
Dental Implant Costs
As with all services provided at Dr. Joe Dentistry in Torrance, CA and surrounding areas, you will be given a fair and honest quote for your dental implants. In fact, honesty and clear communication is one of our founding principles. However, we want you to be informed that dental implants can be very costly particularly because the components are expensive; they are high quality, bio-compatible, and sterile. The fact that it is a highly specialized, technique sensitive procedure also contributes to the relatively high cost of implants. Only dentists that have been specifically trained are qualified to do this procedure.
