Whether you’ve been involved in an accident or looking to repair teeth degeneration, if you are at this page, chances are you are looking for someone to perform your dental implant. Whatever your situation is, Southland Dental Care is here to help transform the aesthetics and health of your teeth while restoring the ability smile, chew, and bite again.
If you or your general dentist agree that dental implants are the right procedure for you, Southland Dental Care will begin the careful process of transforming the look and feel of your teeth. Dr. Hanookai will utilize her state-of-the-art CT scan imaging machine to customize your dental implants so they are the perfect shape, size, and color to perfectly match your surrounding teeth, creating a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
Although patients may be a bit apprehensive when they first consider a dental implants procedure, we assure them that it is actually quite painless. If the affected tooth is still in place, we will provide a thorough tooth extraction and root canal, ensuring that all nerve endings and pulp are removed from the site, creating a space with which Dr. Hanookai can place your new dental implant. Then, the titanium part of the dental implant is fused with the jawbone. After about four to six months, the dental implant is fully unified with the jawbone, and a custom-selected crown or bridge is placed over the implant, creating a natural appearance. The crown is bonded securely, so the new dental implant looks, acts, and feels just like a natural tooth. If a tooth extraction or root canal is needed for your dental implant procedure, our Los Angeles dental office provides sedation dentistry options to make your procedure as comfortable as possible.
Though many dentists choose to provide their own dental implants, a professional periodontist, such as Dr. Hanookai, is often called upon for complex cases, as she has the experience and training to create a bony bed for the tooth in the event that the bony bed is damaged or requires repair. Creating a proper base for the dental implant is of the utmost importance; without it, the dental implant will not be able to fuse properly and thus will not be structurally sound. A proper dental implant will allow patients to talk, smile, bite, chew, brush, and floss just as with a natural tooth.
