Lasting Benefits of Dental Implants
Comparing Your Tooth Replacement Options
Most patients are aware that dental bridges and conventional dentures are the default solution for missing teeth, but bridges require adjacent healthy teeth to be present and permanently modified to act as the foundation. Dentures often become loose and slip when you eat, speak or even smile, and can also cause sores on the gums or gagging. Ultimately, neither option can offer the bone stimulation needed to maintain a healthy jawbone or the restored function you need in order to eat a varied diet. Dental implants are the modern solution designed to meet these needs, and many more!
Securely fixed to your jawbone, dental implants can restore over 99% of natural biting and chewing power. They can replace one tooth, a row of teeth, or a complete arch of missing teeth, using either single implants and crowns or a combination of dental implants and a custom, natural-looking bridge of teeth. In all cases, dental implants make it possible to eat comfortably with durable teeth, feel confident in a complete smile, improve your oral and physical health, and live an overall better quality of life. For these reasons, implants are one of the preferred solutions for replacing any number of missing teeth.
Three Steps to a New Smile
Step 1: Consultation
Most of our patients either come to us ready for dental implants, or they can become candidates for implants after a few initial treatments. Your dental implant treatment plan will be tailored to your needs; there’s no one-size-fits-all approach here. We’ll determine the best path forward by learning your personal smile goals and assessing your dental and medical health as part of your consultation with one of our oral surgeons in Beverly Hills or West Valley/Reseda, CA. During that visit, you’ll also receive an examination, and we’ll review imaging of your treatment site. These are typically taken with a cone beam computed tomography (commonly known as CT) machine for an in-depth look at your jawbone health. We’ll provide a detailed review of your treatment plan and walk you through what to expect for each step of this process. Before you leave, we’ll schedule your next visit for your dental implant surgery.
Step 2: Dental Implant Surgery
Your appointment begins with gentle administration of sedation or anesthesia. Licensed to administer IV sedation as well as general anesthesia, Dr. Vladimir Polyakov will keep you pain-free and comfortable during your procedure. If you require preliminary treatments, including tooth extractions or bone grafting, our oral surgeon will often be able to provide these in the same appointment. Next, each dental implant will be precisely placed in your jawbone. We only use high-quality dental implants from leading manufacturers, so we can ensure the longevity of your treatment. After placement, you’ll frequently be able to receive a new tooth or bridge of natural-looking teeth immediately. In this case, you’ll be able to return home with a fully functional and complete smile. At the conclusion of your appointment, we will also schedule a two-week follow-up appointment to ensure optimal healing.
Step 3: Final Smile
It may take three months or more to heal completely. During that period, your implants will permanently bond with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. It’s this bond with the biocompatible implant posts that offers the security and function dental implants are known for. After you’ve healed, you’ll be able to receive your final restorations. These fixed teeth will be customized to you, complementing the shade of remaining healthy teeth for a seamless smile. From then on, you won’t have trouble eating or feel embarrassed when you laugh, speak or smile. Give your dental implants and natural teeth routine care, and you may never again suffer from missing teeth!
Why See an Oral Surgeon?
Receiving dental implants can significantly benefit your daily life as well as your health. However, before you commit to treatment, make sure you see an experienced oral surgeon you can trust. Although some general dentists have the experience to place dental implants, they haven’t had the specialized training of oral and maxillofacial surgeons to treat any case with ease and efficiency. Dr. Vladimir Polyakov has specific training in implant surgery and anesthesia, and he also has extensive medical training and decades of experience. That means our team welcomes even those with pre-existing medical conditions and those in need of complex care that many dentists turn away. We frequently see patients with advanced bone loss, severe dental anxiety or facial trauma. We welcome you to learn more about our surgical team in Beverly Hills and West Valley/Reseda, CA, and see how their specialized care can transform your oral health, overall health and quality of life.

The Cost of Dental Implants
As well as the lasting, life-changing advantages that dental implants offer, they also require higher initial cost than traditional alternatives. However, since they are the closest option to natural teeth, the higher cost of dental implants is ultimately worth it, due to the dramatic benefits you’ll receive in all areas of your life. This boost in confidence, happiness and health cannot be highlighted enough. Many of our patients comment on how they wish that they would have received implants sooner. At our Beverly Hills and West Valley/Reseda, CA implant facilities, we realize the impact of these transformative effects. So, we do everything within our power to ensure you have the highest quality care. While your initial consultation does come with a fee, all of our patients readily accept this cost in order to receive the quality of care and experience for which Dr. Vladimir Polyakov is renowned.
