A missing tooth is more than a cosmetic annoyance. The gaps created by missing teeth can invite bacteria and infection, can compromise a patient’s ability to eat and speak correctly, and can allow adjacent teeth to shift their positioning. If you are missing a tooth or teeth, it is important to fill the gap to prevent further damage to your mouth.
Whether it is to replace a single tooth, or to create a full mouth of secure permanent new teeth, implants are a proven, long lasting alternative to bridges and dentures. In fact, a dental implant could very well last a lifetime because it impervious to cavities! Acting as substitute roots, dental implants bond with the bone to form a stable foundation for permanent replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
Dr. Sooferi has additional experience and up-to-date training with virtually all implant systems and prosthetic treatment options. Taking care of patients in need of dental implants is some Dr. Sooferi’s favorite treatment. He is so confident in his ability to create a successful result that he created a limited warranty for his implant work with coverage for 8 years!
From start to finish, it is a simple process to receive a dental implant at LA Smiles. In most cases, tooth removal, bone grafting, and implant surgery can be completed at our office without the need to visit a second office. While surgically placing a titanium implant into the jaw sounds like it would be considered major surgery, dental implant surgery is simple and relatively painless. Most patients never miss a day of work after implant surgery! Our surgical results are consistent, predictable, and exceptional! When the implant is ready to be restored with a permanent porcelain crown, Dr. Sooferi has created special relationships with specific, highly-trained laboratory technicians to help him create a final product that is strong, chews comfortably, does not collect food around it, and looks natural.
