Next to Natural: Hollywood’s Replacement for Missing Teeth

Dental implants are a great choice for replacing any missing teeth. Dr. Dalinda Canela-Pichardo is an experienced implant dentist in Hollywood. While some consider dental implants to be purely cosmetic, the truth is that they do more than just improve the way your smile looks. Missing teeth affect your oral health, as remaining teeth will shift to compensate for those lost. Over time, your jawbone can begin to deteriorate from not having stimulus from the root of the tooth.  Dental implants prevent atrophying by acting as the root and creating a stable foundation for a crown restoration. Whether you’re missing just a single tooth or a whole arch of teeth, we have a solution for you. Get the most natural replacement options from a qualified implant dentist at Canela Dental.

Place and Restore

Your comfort and satisfaction are our highest priority, so we ensure you know exactly what to expect throughout the whole procedure. First, we bring in a skilled periodontist to surgically place your dental implant. Using state-of-the-art imaging, we’re able to accurately place the biocompatible metal rod into your jaw. As it heals, the bone will fuse to the implant, just like a natural tooth’s root. Next, Dr. Canela-Pichardo will custom-create a dental prosthetic to restore your implant. We ensure you get the most natural aesthetic, as we can match the shape and color of your teeth so your restoration blends seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Whether you’re considering dentures as a replacement option for missing teeth, or you already wear dentures, you may be a candidate for implant-retained dentures. These prosthetics are more secure than traditional dentures, as they are held in place by dental implants. Like regular dentures, implant-retained dentures are removable, though they won’t shift, rub, or slip. You’ll get a comfortable, perfect fit, which means you can smile with confidence. We’ll customize a brand-new set of dentures that will complete your smile and restore full functionality to your mouth. Already wear dentures? We may be able to adapt your existing set of dentures to attach to dental implants. We’re happy to help get you a secure, comfortable fit of your dentures. 

All-on-4 Implants

If you need a whole new arch of teeth but want an alternative to dentures, you may be a candidate for All-on-4 dental implants. Like dentures, these prosthetics replace an entire set of teeth, however, they are permanently fixed to as little as four dental implants. The implants are perfectly placed in your jaw to evenly distribute the weight of your new teeth. All-on-4 dental implants can be brushed like natural teeth and require no adhesive to stay in place.
