Dental Implants FAQ

Implant model

Dental implants are one of the best ways to replace missing teeth. But even though they are considered the standard treatment, a lot of people still have questions about this “modern” technique.

How long do dental implants last?
Today’s dental implant designs are made in such a way that they can last for the rest of your life. To keep them well integrated with the bone, it’s important that you brush and floss around them daily. Regular checkups are also important.

Does it hurt to get dental implants?
Getting implants is gentler than most people expect. Only a small amount of local anesthetic is needed in most cases. However, sedation is also available for your comfort if you prefer to nap through the procedure.

Are dental implants better than bridges or dentures?
Yes. Dental implants are the only permanent, non-invasive tooth replacement available today. They are safer for adjacent teeth and help promote good overall oral health.

What type of “teeth” can I put on top of dental implants?
Since implants only serve as the “root” portion of your new tooth, you’ll need a crown, bridge, hybrid appliance, or denture to go on top of them. We can tailor exactly how you want your new smile to look.

How many implants do I need?
If you’re only missing one tooth, you’ll only need one dental implant. But since implants are so strong, we can use as few as 4-6 of them to anchor a full-arch prosthesis!

What Our Patients Say About Us

Even our patients who have been told in the past that they are not good candidates for dental implants have found options at our clinic.

  • Mindy W.

    This is a very welcoming center. Everyone seemed very competent and helpful. I had an oral biopsy today. No waiting. The staff were ready for me and all was in place. Dr. Yagoubian was warm , cheerful and I felt in extremely capable hands. I am so grateful I was referred to him. Sincerely, Mindy W.

  • Raj G.

    Dr. Yagoubian is excellent. I was in state for business when my wisdom tooth broke. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Yagoubian's office. Everyone there was professional and courteous. The procedure went smoothly. Dr. Y is highly skilled, meticulous, and a very personable health care provider (a rarity in the field, in my opinion). If you need an oral surgeon, I highly recommend him.

  • Chahab S.

    Dr Yagoubian is an excellent oral surgeon, supported by a very professional staff. They made the experience as stress-free as possible. Highly recommended.

  • Paul M.

    A positive experience from start to end. I got a sense that this was going to go well and it did. Two extractions, two implants, bone graft and removal of four part bridge. Leaving part of the bridge on one tooth. If there were 10stars they would be for Torrance oral surgery group and Dr. Alicia Wolf / Blanco Demtal Group for recommending Ben.
