Dental Implant Consultation in Los Angeles

If you have missing teeth, set up a dental implant consultation in Los Angeles, CAwith Dr. Andrew Satlin as soon as possible. Dr. Satlin can provide information about your dental implant cost and treatment plan during your first visit. Here is a closer look at what to expect during your dental implant consultation:

Examination

Dr. Satlin will perform a thorough oral examination to determine bone density and your overall oral health. Patients with inadequate bone density may require a bone grafting procedure prior to implant placement.

X-Rays

Your dental exam will involve x-rays and computer tomography scans (CT scans). Dr. Satlin will use the x-rays and scans to determine the exact implant placement location.

Discussion

Dr. Satlin will take some time to learn more about your oral hygiene routine, medical and oral health history, and any personal habits that may influence the success of your implant procedure. Smoking can prohibit a patient from undergoing the implant procedure because tobacco use can negatively affect the successful integration of implants.

Implant Options

Based on the results of your examination, Dr. Satlin will recommend the types of dental implants that are best suited for your unique needs. Unlike dentures and fixed bridges, dental implants are highly versatile and can adapt to the needs of the individual patient. They can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple missing teeth, or all of your teeth. Your options may include traditional implants, All-on-4™ implants, implant supported dentures, and more.
