Dental Implants in West Los Angeles with Hastee Payman, DDS: Restoring Your Smile with Precision and Care

Missing teeth can significantly impact your ability to chew, speak, and smile confidently. They can also lead to further oral health issues, including bone loss and shifting of remaining teeth. Dental implants offer a permanent and highly effective solution for replacing missing teeth, providing a natural look and feel. In West Los Angeles, Dr. Hastee Payman, DDS, is a renowned dentist specializing in restorative dentistry, including dental implants. With a commitment to excellence and patient care, Dr. Payman and her team provide top-tier dental implant services designed to restore the function and aesthetics of your smile.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials such as titanium. They are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they integrate with the bone tissue to provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth. Dental implants can support single crowns, bridges, or even full dentures, making them a versatile solution for various tooth replacement needs.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer numerous advantages over traditional tooth replacement options, making them the preferred choice for many patients:

  • Natural Appearance: Implants are designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing result.
  • Improved Functionality: Dental implants restore your ability to chew and speak properly, enhancing your overall quality of life.
  • Bone Preservation: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss that often occurs with missing teeth.
  • Durability: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, offering a long-term solution for tooth replacement.
  • Stability: Unlike dentures, implants do not slip or move, providing a secure and comfortable fit.
  • Oral Health: Implants do not require alteration of adjacent teeth, preserving the integrity of your natural teeth.

Types of Dental Implants

Dr. Hastee Payman, DDS, offers several types of dental implants to meet the unique needs of her patients:

Single Tooth Implants

Single tooth implants are used to replace one missing tooth. A single implant is placed in the jawbone, and a custom crown is attached to the abutment, providing a natural-looking and functional replacement.

Implant-Supported Bridges

Implant-supported bridges are ideal for replacing multiple missing teeth. Instead of relying on natural teeth for support, the bridge is anchored to dental implants, providing enhanced stability and durability.

All-on-4 and All-on-6 Implants

These implant techniques are used to replace an entire arch of teeth. Four or six implants are strategically placed in the jawbone to support a full arch prosthesis. This approach offers a stable and efficient solution for patients with significant tooth loss.

The Dental Implant Process with Dr. Hastee Payman, DDS

Dr. Hastee Payman, DDS, follows a meticulous and personalized approach to ensure the best outcomes for her patients. Here’s what you can expect during the dental implant process:

Initial Consultation

Your journey to a restored smile begins with an initial consultation with Dr. Payman. During this visit, she will discuss your dental goals, evaluate your oral health, and determine if dental implants are the right solution for you. Dr. Payman will explain the treatment process, answer any questions, and outline the expected results.

Treatment Planning

If dental implants are deemed suitable, the next step involves creating a detailed treatment plan. This includes taking digital impressions and 3D scans of your mouth to assess bone density and structure. These images help Dr. Payman plan the precise placement of the implants for optimal results.

Implant Placement

The implant placement procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Dr. Payman will make a small incision in the gum tissue to expose the jawbone and carefully place the implant into the bone. In some cases, a temporary restoration may be placed during this appointment to maintain the appearance of your smile.

Healing and Osseointegration

After the implants are placed, a healing period of several months is necessary to allow the implants to integrate with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. This creates a strong and stable foundation for the final restoration. During this period, you will have follow-up appointments with Dr. Payman to monitor your progress and ensure proper healing.

Abutment Placement

Once the implants have fully integrated with the jawbone, an abutment is attached to the implant. The abutment serves as a connector between the implant and the final restoration. This step may require a minor surgical procedure to expose the implant and attach the abutment.

Final Restoration

The final step involves placing the custom-made restoration, which could be a crown, bridge, or denture, onto the abutment. Dr. Payman will ensure that the restoration fits perfectly and matches the color and shape of your natural teeth for a seamless appearance. She will also check your bite and make any necessary adjustments to ensure comfort and functionality.
