Dental implants may be the solution you’re seeking if missing teeth make it difficult to chew food or smile confidently. Dr. Sam Harouni’s Beverly Hills oral and maxillofacial surgery office provides a thorough review of your dental health as well as dental implant surgery to restore missing teeth. Dental implants are a long-term replacement for teeth that have been lost due to disease or decay. They can also boost your self-esteem and enhance your natural grin. Call the practice or use the online booking option to schedule a consultation to find out if dental implants are correct for you.
Dr. Harouni will implant long-lasting titanium posts into your jawbone during dental implant surgery. These posts bond with your natural jawbone to form a foundation for an artificial tooth.
Dental implants are a permanent treatment for replacing lost teeth that are intended to give you long-term results.
If you have difficulty chewing or speaking due to missing teeth, Dr. Harouni may suggest dental implants. Dental implants may be a viable option for replacing lost teeth caused by injury, disease, or genetic issues that prevent teeth from developing.
If you’re unsatisfied with your appearance or have dentures that cause you pain or discomfort, you might think about getting dental implants.
Dr. Harouni evaluates your general oral health to ensure your jawbone is healthy enough to support the post to determine if dental implants are appropriate for you. He may be able to supplement your existing jawbone with a graft in some circumstances to better support the implant.
If the position of your sinuses prevents an implant from being placed in your upper jaw, Dr. Harouni can conduct sinus lift surgery. This procedure lifts the floor of your sinuses to allow for implant placement.
Dr. Harouni examines your medical history to ensure you are in good enough health for surgery. During your initial appointment, he may require dental X-rays to develop a customized treatment plan in collaboration with your oral surgeon.
Dr. Harouni performs dental implant surgery in two stages. First, he prepares for surgery to implant the titanium posts. He uses IV sedation during surgery to make you comfortable while he implants the posts into your jawbone.
After the implant procedure, you must provide your jawbone time to heal and fuse to the new posts. This period of recovery guarantees that your jaw is healthy and strong enough to support your replacement tooth.
After 4-6 months of healing, Dr. Harouni will call you back in to expose the implant and place a healing cap on it. The next stage is for your normal dentist to attach the artificial tooth. This tooth is custom-made in a dental laboratory to closely match the color and shape of your original teeth.
While the implant’s replacement tooth is resistant to diseases and decay, you must maintain proper oral hygiene.
You care for your implants in the same way that you would your natural teeth. Brushing and flossing your implant daily prevents germs and food particles from causing gum disease and other dental problems.
Routine dental examinations and cleanings are also necessary to maintain good oral health.
