Dental Implants Can Restore Your Perfect Smile
If you’ve lost a tooth or are missing multiple teeth, you can replace them – and you can get permanent, perfect teeth to complete your smile. Dental implants are a great option for anyone living with missing teeth or an imperfect smile.
Not All Implant Dentists Have the Same Training
When choosing a dentist to place your dental implant, it’s important to choose one with significant training and expertise.
The fact that our cosmetic dentists have special training in placing dental implants means that they have thousands of hours of extra training specifically on placing implants and they have successfully placed dental implants hundreds, if not thousands of times before.
Do dental implants last?
Unlike natural teeth, dental implants are not susceptible to dental disease such as decay; however, the health of the gums is vital to maintaining lasting implant success. Conscientious home care by the patient and regular professional cleanings and check-ups are essential elements for dental implant sustainability. Each patient is different, and success relies upon diagnosis and planning, medical history, and a variety of other factors.

Same Day Teeth
The Evolution in Implant Dentistry
As dental implants research continues to advance, the concept of Same Day Teeth has proven popular with patients. Usually there’s a three to six month integration period whereby the titanium post fuses with the jawbone. However, Same Day Teeth can be completed in just one office visit. Patients who have lost a front tooth are especially excited about the prospects of having the procedure completed in such a short time. Dr. Tehranian has been at the forefront of research and practice of the Same Day procedures.
Eat and Smile Again
Millions of people are missing one or multiple teeth, requiring the use of removable dentures or bridgework. Many people struggle with loose fitting teeth. If you have this problem you already know the embarrassment of eating and smiling in public. We can restore the ability to eat your favorite foods and to smile again!
Still Not Sure if Dental Implants are Right for You?

When a missing tooth is replaced by a dental implant, the fusion, or osseointegration, of the implant and bone provides stability, just as the natural tooth did, which is a major component of the jawbone solidity.
If several teeth are missing in the same area, patients can still enjoy the confidence and lifestyle benefits that are produced by dental implants. The dentist will place two or more dental implants, depending on the number of teeth that are missing. The new replacement teeth will then be attached to the implants to establish excellent function and prevent bone loss. The dental implants will serve as a stable support that tightly locks into the replacement teeth.
With an overall success rate of about 95% and almost 50 years of clinical research to back them up, dental implants are frequently the best treatment option for replacing missing teeth.
A major benefit to dental implants is that they prevent bone loss. As the jawbone requires pressure from chewing in order to maintain its density, it will deteriorate in the absence of a tooth. In fact, in the first year after you lose a tooth, your bone will lose 25% of its volume, and this will continue for as long as the tooth is not replaced with a dental implant.
Regular dentures and bridges can actually worsen bone loss because there is nothing to stimulate the bone. On the other hand, implant-supported dentures and bridges act like natural teeth and provide the pressure necessary to maintain bone density.
Facial sagging can be an unwanted effect of bone loss resulting from missing teeth. This is where the lower third of the face starts to collapse, gradually closing the distance between the tip of the nose and the chin. Changes can include excess wrinkles around the mouth, thinning lips, and a more pointed chin, making the person look a lot older than his or her true age.
