If you have missing teeth and would like to have them replaced, our Torrance dental implants dentist is able to help. Dentures or removable partial dentures can also be replaced with implants, which are very strong, durable and much more comfortable in the mouth.
Dr. Robert Mondavi, an expert in dental implants in Torrance, can restore your smile to fill in those unattractive gaps. And since an implant is inserted into the bone, surrounding teeth will not be affected. With one or more missing teeth, the existing teeth can start to shift within the gums, causing misalignment. This can create additional problems by causing pain, discomfort and even the inability to chew your food properly when teeth are missing. Speech may be affected as well, depending on where the missing teeth are located.
Dental Implants Torrance
Getting these restorations will take a number of visits to our Torrance dental implants dentist over the course of several months, but it will be well worth the effort to have your smile restored and your missing teeth replaced. X-rays will be taken of the teeth and jaw and impressions will also be needed to ensure proper fitting of your dental implants. The affected area will be thoroughly anesthetized, and the implant will be placed. It will take up to six months for the area to heal and for the implant to fuse with the bone.
On your 6 month follow up appointment and once the Implant has fused with the bone an abutment will be placed on the implant and the process of making the implant crown will begin. The Implant Crown made by Dr. Robert Mondavi, expert in dental implants in Torrance, will fit it onto the abutment. It may take several weeks to accomplish this, as it is crucial to have a proper fit. Dr. Robert Mondavi will then attach the implant crown to the implant, and you will have a stable environment once more for eating and speaking. Your smile will also be restored.
Dr. Robert Mondavi, a well-known dentist in Torrance, will instruct you as to the best way to take care of your implant. With regular visits and cleanings, you will have your restored smile looking beautiful and natural for many years.
