What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a permanent solution to restore missing teeth. They are made of a Biocompatible medical grade titanium. In order to place them inside the bone, a small incision is going to be made over the gums and the implant will be placed inside the bone by using special drills. Then the implant is going to be left inside the bone for healing. The process of implant healing is called osteointegration. At this time body is going to be making new bone around the implant that gets fused to the implant surface and creates a very strong bond. This process usually takes about 4-6 months.
The healing time depends on many factors like the quality of the bond, age of the patient and many more factors. After the healing period is completed, the implant becomes part of the bone and can act like a healthy and strong root to carry a new implant crown. The implant in combined with the crown that is attached to it will look, function and feel like a natural tooth.
Whether patients are missing a single tooth, or require a full smile makeover, Smile Atelier Beverly hills offers a wide variety of treatment options to ensure that every patient needing dental implants gets a beautiful, individualized smile.

It is absolutely necessary to obtain a bone CT scan before proceeding with implant surgery in order to define the quality and the quantity of the bone in the surgery site. By using the digital planning tool the size (length and width) and the exact location of the implant is going to be defined. Then a surgical guide is going to be fabricated in order to eliminate all mistakes in process of implant surgery.
In cases that there is not enough bone available, extra bone grafting procedures need to be performed in order to rebuild the lost mount of bone.
