dental implants Omid Dental Office dentist in South Gate, CAWe are proud to offer dental implants in South Gate, CA for our patients. Dental implants are roots placed in your mouth for either permanent teeth to be placed on or ones that you can remove.

Dental implants are done to improve a patient’s smile and usually their self esteem. Having missing or bad teeth can be quite embarrassing. Dental implants also can be done to improve oral health. Many people find it easier to eat with dental implants. Their speech can also be improved. Dental implants are also more comfortable because they are made to become permanent.

When done correctly, and with proper care, dental implants can last a patient’s whole life. It is still important to brush your teeth, floss, and use mouthwash when you have implants. Patients still need routine dental checkups to keep their implants healthy.

Why a Dental Implant? 

Missing teeth can cause various dental issues, which can and will occur frequently. One lost tooth might be the catalyst for misalignment, eating difficulties, speaking problems, and tooth decay. Tooth decay can weaken and fragile the teeth around it, exacerbating the problem. A dental implant can resolve all of these issues. The foundation of the implant is placed into your jawbone, making it a secure and permanent restoration. The implant strengthens your jawbone and allows you to return to speaking normally and eating all of your favorite foods. 


Dental Implant Procedure

The dental implant procedure is a surgical process that will last a couple of months. The process consists of three different dental appliances that need to be placed at separate times to allow your mouth to heal. The three parts are the post, the abutment, and the crown. 

The first element installed is the post. The post resembles a metal screw that will be surgically implanted into your jaw bone. The dentist will start by cutting the gums open to expose the bone. The dentist will use a small drill to create a hole in the jaw bone. After that, the post will be put in place. It will take some time for your mouth to heal around the post. As the tissue forms around the post, it will cement in place. The post will serve as your tooth’s replacement root. 

The abutment is the second part of the implant, and it will be attached to the top of the post. The abutment is the component that connects the post to the crown and keeps the crown in place. The abutment is easier to implant than the post, but it will take time for your mouth, particularly your gum line, to heal. We will give you a temporary crown until your real crown is ready!

The crown is the last component of a dental implant. The crown will be custom-made to your preferred shade and fashioned to blend in with the rest of your teeth. When the crown is secured, you may notice some sensitivity in your mouth, but the implant will be complete and ready to use.


We know that the idea of a surgical dental restoration can sound nerve-racking. That is why we offer different sedation options to all of our patients. When you express interest in a dental implant, we will have you in for a consultation, and we will then talk about different sedatives. We want to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible! 


At Omid Dental, we are eager to help each patient gain a healthy, strong smile that they are proud of! Please come see us in our office in South Gate, California if you are missing a tooth. Schedule an appointment today!
