Surgically Guided Dental Implants Near San Pedro

At Torrance Oral Surgery Center, Dr. Benjamin Yagoubian uses your 3D scan to plan out your precise dental implant placement. Using your 3D scan and using a guided implant surgery plan ensures that your dental implant is placed accurately and helps us achieve the most optimal outcome for each patient.

Lost teeth can impact your appearance, health and the functionality of your mouth. Dental implants offer a permanent solution to replace missing teeth and stimulate bone growth in your jaw. If you live in San Pedro and are interested in dental implants, Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center offers superior dental implants to help restore your smile.

Why Get a Dental Implant?

There are many reasons people choose dental implants over other restorative options. Some of the uses and benefits of dental implants include:

  • Functional, stable tooth replacements that look and feel natural
  • Added stability for dentures
  • Support for a dental bridge
  • Reduction of oral bone loss
  • Prevention of shifting teeth

Dental implants can create one or more new teeth or they are used in conjunction with bridges or dentures. Even patients with bone loss in their jaw bone can be candidates for dental implants or All-on-4 dentures.

What Is a Dental Implant?

Like a natural tooth, a dental implant has a “root” that is attached to the jaw bone. A titanium post is used for this “root” and is inserted surgically into the bone. After the initial implant surgery, bone grows around the post and creates a secure, permanent base, which can be used to create a functional tooth or is attached to dentures.

What Is the Dental Implant Process?

Dental implant surgery can be completed in one visit. The procedure involves an incision in the gum tissue to access the jaw bone. The implant post is secure in the bone and the incision is closed. The surgical site can require 3-4 months to heal before a permanent crown can be added to create the tooth. If a bone graft or tooth extraction must be performed first, this must heal before the implant can be placed.

Dental implants have a high success rate and can last for decades when properly maintained. While they are more expensive initially than a dental bridge or dentures, they can last longer and offer more benefits.

  • 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.

  • 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.
