Dr. Anderkvist has been around long enough to know the importance of having a complete set of teeth. Because the one thing that can destroy your smile, and your willingness to share it, is adult tooth loss.
It is no secret that we live in a town where appearance matters. But regardless of where you call home, a lot is riding on your smile both at work and at play.
If you’re struggling with the aftermath of tooth loss or need to stabilize your dentures, our team can provide you with a strong and durable solution: dental implants.
It is true that dental implants are a bit more expensive than bridges and removable dentures, but they are an investment in improved health and quality of life. We happen to think you are worth it!
Keep reading and then be sure to get in touch with Dr. Anderkvist to schedule your dental implant consultation in our L.A. dentist’s office!
Implants Are The Real Deal
Tooth loss can happen fast as the result of an accident. Or a tooth may simply need to be removed because of trauma, decay, or gum disease. Either way, it will be traumatic and embarrassing for you, until you let us help.
So, how do our implants work?
The implants themselves are titanium screw-like posts that replace the root of your natural tooth. After it is inserted, we will be able to attach an abutment to the implant to firmly hold your restoration in place. These restorations include crowns, dental bridges, or dentures.
Implants Boost Your Appearance
After losing teeth, your smile, and your self-assurance, will suffer. And with collapsed cheeks, you will look much older than you really are.
Fortunately, the high quality crown we place over the implant will look and feel completely natural, it will give you a fuller smile and facial support. You’ll get your devastatingly good looks back in no time.
Implants Give You Your Bite Back
After getting your implants, you will once again have biting power. This means that you can go back to eating the foods you love, and the fiber-rich items that keeps you healthy and happy. And if you’ve received our dental implants in order to stabilize your dentures, you’ll be able to eat with confidence.
What About All-On-4?
Like we said, implants can help you feel more confident about your dentures, but with a standard dental implant procedure, you may need eight or more implants to support your dentures.
It is possible, however, to get comparable strength and stability from four strategically placed dental implants.
With our All-on-4 solution, two implants are placed vertically at the front of your mouth. The other two implants are placed diagonally so they are supported by a stronger part of your jawbone.
One big benefit of the All-on-4 method is that we are able to place a set of temporary dentures on your implants on the same day as your procedure.
That way, you will enjoy some of the benefits straightaway. Once you have healed sufficiently from the procedure, we will attach your permanent dentures.
