Dental Implants Prices Los Angeles
Dentures, a flesh-colored acrylic base that fits over your gums, have long been the solution to tooth loss. The base of the upper denture covers the palate (the roof of the mouth), while that of the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue. Dentures cause a loss of bone and chewing functions and increase the appearance of aging. Furthermore, wearers of lower dentures only retain 10% of their chewing capacity. Our dental implants center in Los Angeles can provide something better: Zirconia dental implants.
Traditional dentures can be difficult to fit, painful to wear, and may slip or cause embarrassing clicking sounds while eating or speaking. Dental implants, on the other hand, have the look and feel of natural teeth and with proper care and cleaning, can last a lifetime. Our dentists can advise patients on our affordably low dental implants prices in Los Angeles.
Our dental implants prices in Los Angeles are set for two types of implants. The most common type of dental implants we offer involves an artificial replacement that is attached to the jaw bone like a real tooth. This implant is called endosteal (in the bone) and replaces the entire tooth down to the missing root. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth and supports the jaw bone and muscles. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures and if properly maintained should stay in place for years.
The second type of implant is subperiosteal (on the bone) and is placed on top of the jaw, held in place by metal posts protruding up from under the gums. These types of implants are used for patients who cannot wear conventional dentures. Our dental implants doctor can recommend a type of prosthetic that is right for you.
Compared to removable dentures, our dental implants prices in Los Angeles will save you money in the long run. Dentures can require replacement every 7-15 years, but with proper cleaning and care, dental implants can last a lifetime. According to patients, the discomfort attached to dental implants procedures is minimal. Recovery is quick so you can get back to your regular activities like work and school.
