A dental implant is a metal support structure that attaches to your jawbone. Once the implant fuses with the bone, the implant becomes the foundation for your custom teeth replacements or crowns. Your new crowns have the look and function of natural teeth.

Typically referred to as “teeth in a day,” these immediate load implants have the benefit of leaving our office with a complete set of teeth. In addition, the All-on-4 implants are designed not to slip and are affixed into place to restore a full arch, help replace lost bone structure by filling out your face and cheeks.
A traditional implant is commonly used instead of a bridge or dentures. The Endosteal implant has screws implanted into your jawbone for optimal strength and longevity. These implants have helped millions of people around the world improve their smiles over the past 60 years.
An excellent alternative for patients who lack proper bone support is the zygomatic implant. In contrast to traditional implants (where the implant attaches to the jaw bone), zygomatic implants go into the zygoma (the bone above the maxilla that extends to form your cheekbones). This revolutionary procedure provides the comfort of a more natural feeling bite and smile for people who previously lacked the ability to receive implants due to bone loss. No more uncomfortable dentures!
Bespoke treatment from Sherman Oaks dental implant expert Dr. Eddie Siman
During your consultation with Dr. Siman, he will guide you through the process and give you peace of mind about the procedure. What makes Dr. Siman unique is his knowledge and ability to restore your teeth with proper foundation. Dr. Siman understands the architecture of the jaw and your jaw joints and constructs your teeth, taking all these areas into consideration. In a way, rebuilding a mouth is like building a house.
If you are building a single story house with three bedrooms, you go to an architect that designs single story family homes. This is like the dentist that fixes a few teeth at a time. However, if you are planning to build a highrise, you want an architect who knows how to do commercial construction. This is like the expertise needed to reconstruct all of your upper teeth or all your lower teeth or all of your teeth. This requires years of training and experience, and it is highly recommended that you have this work performed by someone who has completed thousands of such restorations.
Dr. Siman takes the function of your teeth and jaw seriously and will uncover the root problem that caused your missing teeth. These issues are often due to malocclusion resulting from TMJ disorder. Dr. Siman combines bite and jaw positioning, along with innovative dental technology to provide function and comfort, along with achieving your aesthetic goals. Your dental implant procedure takes about one to three hours, depending on the specifics of your treatment plan. You also receive traditional dental x-rays and 3-D scans for proper site measurement and accurate implantation.

For a smile that will last a lifetime
Depending on the type of dental implant procedure you need, you can expect the following recoveries:
If you do not need bone grafting, your dental implant recovery should be no more downtime than getting a traditional filling.
In most cases, the implant needs time to heal, and the more time without direct contact on the implant, the results are better for full integration. So, you will begin with a liquid or soft diet during this time. In addition, you must avoid hard or crunchy foods, such as chips or nuts, and avoid chewing gum for six weeks.
Once the implant is joined to the bone, it takes about four to six months for the implant to bond to the jawbone. This is also when the abutment and dental crown are placed if needed. For some patients, full results are seen at this time.
Follow post-treatment instructions for optimal healing.
You may experience some swelling, tenderness, and possible bruising, but these side effects are common with other types of dental surgery. Any post-procedural discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter medication. In addition, a saline rinse can help keep your mouth clean and alleviate pain and swelling.
Dr. Siman will make your mouth numb with a local anesthetic. Most patients feel a slight pinch. Then once your mouth is numb, the doctor can begin the implant process.
Once a tooth is extracted, it is recommended to replace that tooth with a dental implant to avoid bone loss and prevent your teeth from shifting. Often, patients are eligible to have the implant placed immediately after the extraction of the tooth at the same appointment, avoiding the need for an additional surgery. Dr. Siman has the training, expertise, and hands-on experience in the placement of immediate dental implants and has successfully completed thousands of implant restorations.
Schedule a private consultation with Dr. Siman where he will customize your case and personalize a treatment plan that is best for you.
