Dental Implants in Los Angeles

Dental Implant Los Angeles - Young CoupleAre you missing teeth and are uncomfortable being around anyone but your closest friends or family? Do you find yourself avoiding activities that may require you to be around strangers? Are some of your teeth worn down because you are using them to compensate for missing teeth in your smile? Does your face look haggard or older because you are missing teeth and your cheeks are sunken in?

Having a beautiful smile is essential in today’s world and it is difficult to feel confident if your smile isn’t what you want it to be. That’s why Los Angeles dentist Dr. Mungcal at Downtown Dental is happy to offer dental implants to his Los Angeles neighbors.

What are the advantages of Dental Implants?

  • Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth.
  • Dental implants can look extremely natural, mimicking the look of the surrounding, natural teeth in your mouth. We color-match them. So, they look completely natural in your smile.
  • Dental implants feel like natural teeth and can give your mouth that full, complete feeling.
  • Unlike a dental bridge, which reduces the enamel of the adjacent teeth and uses them to connect the three teeth together, an implant is a stand-alone tooth that is easier to clean, permanent, and preserves the bony ridge of a patient's mouth.
Dental Implant Los Angeles - Elderly PersonDental implants are highly recommended to address missing teeth. The process of obtaining dental implants is simple. First, Los Angeles dentist Dr. Mungcal at Downtown Dental will give you an examination during a consultation to determine your overall oral health. A CT scan is completed in order to diagnose the level of bone in your mouth three-dimensionally, as a strong and adequate bone structure is required to hold dental implants in place successfully. The CT scan offers assurance that the dental implants will not hit any vital anatomy such as nerves or sinuses. Few other dentists in the area have the state-of-the-art technological equipment that is used by Los Angeles dentist Dr. Mungcal at Downtown Dental.

Once Los Angeles dentist Dr. Mungcal has determined you are a good candidate for dental implants, we will place the titanium implant (a small metal post) into the jawbone. In 3-6 months, osseointegration, or fusing with the jawbone occurs. During this process, the bone will grow around the titanium implant in order to strengthen it and hold it in place. It is a little like growing a “new” tooth root as the dental implants are tooth root replacements. Temporary dental crowns are placed on the implants until osseointegration has completed. When the healing time is completed, your Los Angeles dentist will then fit and place a permanent dental crown on your dental implant.
Dental implants last an extremely long time, which makes them a more permanent solution to replacing missing teeth than a dental bridge or partial denture. They also offer more strength and stability than other solutions, which makes them highly recommended by Dr. Mungcal, who has over 15 years of experience in placing implants.

I am so glad I came to Downtown Dental. From the moment I walked into the office I was met with a smile and a warm welcome. During my first visit, a dental plan was made for me and they got to work right away. I have never experienced such attention to detail and such excellent customer service at a dental office. During my root canal procedure and fillings everyone was extremely helpful and constantly making sure I was comfortable. Since then, I am encouraging everyone to check out Downtown Dental, they really are amazing.
