Most people have lost a tooth by the time they reach midlife. Teeth are lost for many reasons, ranging from dental accidents to decay and gum disease. If you have lost a tooth, Dr. Randy Lozada, our Los Angeles dental implants expert, may recommend dental implants. Implants are a revolutionary restoration that closely mimics the design of the natural tooth root and provides a strong foundation for a new tooth made to match your remaining teeth exactly.
Implants offer many benefits. At your consultation, Dr. Lozada, our expert in dental implants in Los Angeles, will perform an exam to determine your candidacy for this procedure. Most people who are healthy enough to undergo a routine extraction are also healthy enough for the implant procedure, and if you have enough bone to support the implant, you will likely be a candidate.

The benefits include:
• An improved appearance
Implants look just like your own teeth, and they feel like your own teeth, too, because they fuse with the jawbone. You can use them with confidence to eat all your favorite foods.
• Clearer speech
Ill-fitting dentures tend to slip and slide, which can interfere with clear speech. With implants, you can speak clearly and easily without worrying about what your teeth will be doing.
• Greater comfort
Implants will not pinch or slide against your gums.
• Better dental health
Because implants take the place of tooth roots, they can help the jawbone stay strong and healthy. The jawbone supports them and eliminates the need to reduce other teeth, which helps keep the other teeth intact. You can keep all your teeth healthier and stronger with dental implants, and you can brush and floss them just like you brush and floss natural teeth.
Implants can last a lifetime.
If Dr. Lozada, our Los Angeles dental implants expert, determines that implants are right for you, he will create a completely personalized treatment plan to address your individual needs.
Taking care of your new smile is no more complicated than taking care of your natural teeth. Brush twice a day, and floss every day. Visit our expert in dental implants in Los Angeles twice a year or on your recommended scheduled dates for cleanings and checkups.
