Dental Implants

Tooth loss happens, but your smile doesn't have to suffer.

Sometimes it’s the result of problems with oral hygiene. Other times it’s the result of trauma, such as an athletic accident. What’s important is not how or why you lost your teeth. What matters is that you want your smile back.

Dr. Michael J. Thomas DDS provides several treatments for missing teeth. One of our most popular is our dental implant services. These implants provide a long-lasting, natural solution that our patients love, both for aesthetics and function. Learn more about our dental implants or contact us at any time at 310.274.7005 to schedule a consultation.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a popular alternative to other missing tooth replacements, like dentures. The procedure involves placing a metal anchor inside of the jaw bone so that it is fused into the jaw, not unlike a real tooth.

Once the anchor is firmly in place, a replacement tooth will be created that looks the same shape and size of your real teeth. It will then be placed into the anchor. The result is a false tooth that performs the same look and function as a real tooth.

What Are The Benefits of Dental Implants?

When you lose a tooth, it doesn’t just affect your smile. It also affects your bite. Your remaining teeth may start to move out of place, and you may have a more difficult time biting hard foods. Dentures, and similar treatments, provide adequate replacements. But none of them have the same look and feel like real teeth, and all of them require significantly more upkeep.

With a dental implant, once it’s installed, you treat it not unlike any other tooth. You still brush and floss, but you do not need to take it out, wash it, glue it in, or otherwise think about it over the course of your day. Most people will also not be able to tell you to have a replacement tooth at first glance, giving you back a more confident smile.

Your Consultation with Beverly Hills Top Dentist

Dental implants are one of the best cosmetic and functional replacements for missing teeth. But they’re also not for everyone. A person has to have excellent jaw health, be able to continue to care for their teeth, and have other healthy teeth surrounding the implant.

At your consultation with Dr. Thomas, we’ll take a look at your entire oral health and health history, and use that information to determine if you’re a good candidate for this type of procedure.

At Dr. Michael J Thomas DDS, we have helped so many patients regain their bite and feel more confident in their smiles, and we’d like to help you too. Give us a call today, or schedule an appointment to meet with Dr. Thomas (and the rest of our team). We’d love to talk to you about your oral health and determine which cosmetic treatments are best for your oral health needs.

    5 star review  They did it again! I managed to somehow chip the front of my front tooth eating an arugula chicken salad (wtf??) and that’s not a great look for a realtor/aspiring actor..... So In I come, and Carlos manages to get me in at short notice, Manny takes one look and knows it needs a frontal filling and already has my gums numb by the time Dr Thomas comes in . Less than 30 minutes later (if that) I’m walking back to my car with an intact tooth that you wouldn’t believe looked like an old crumbling brick just a short while earlier. There’s a reason I’ve been coming here for two decades (with my challenging British teeth!) and it’s coz they’re simply the best!
