Regain Your Smile With The Top Dental Implant Specialist In Beverly Hills
Dr. Ken Lalezarian is one of the most respected dentists in Beverly Hills, with over 35 years of providing the best dental care to patients from all over the greater Los Angeles area. With a doctorate from the prestigious University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and an 8 year tenure as the official dentist and consultant to the U.S. Armed Forces and U.S. Embassy, Dr. Lalezarian's reputation as one of the nation's most trusted dentists is well deserved - having successfully performed the most delicate to most complex implant procedures throughout his career.
What Is A Dental Implant & What Is It Good For?
A dental implant starts with a titanium post that is placed and integrated into your jawbone to form a powerful base for your prosthetic teeth. Once installed, the titanium implant is integrated into your jawbone via osseointegration, which is a natural process that fuses the implant to your jawbone - making a permanent and strong foundation for the next component of the dental implant, the abutment. This helps attach the prosthetic tooth or crown to your mouth, resulting in a smile that's almost as strong and just as natural looking as the real thing.
Dental implants aren't just for vanity's sake. Missing teeth can not only prevent you from eating normally, but can also cause gradual loss of facial structure and irreversible bone loss to your jawline.
What Does The Dental Implant Process Involve?
In the past, dental implantation was one of the most painful and traumatic dental procedures a patient could undergo. The treatment used to take months to complete, but now it can be as quick as a same day procedure, depending on the patient's individual condition. Dr. Lalezarian is highly experienced in the extremely specialized procedure of Immediate Loading (Same Day Implants), which means that by the end of the day, the patient can eat, speak, drink, laugh, and go about their life like they did before they lost their teeth.
At Dental Care of Beverly Hills, we create dental implants and prosthetic teeth using advanced computer imaging, so it can fit in naturally with your existing teeth. Today's porcelain technology is almost as strong as natural teeth, and looks just as good - if not better, than the real thing.
For patients concerned with the pain of dental surgery, we offer the option of IV or oral sedation treatment. Whatever method you choose, you can expect to be peacefully asleep while Dr. Lalezarian gently performs this delicate procedure. If you are afraid to undergo sedation, there are other treatments available so you can be as comfortable as possible during the procedure.
