Dental Implants in Torrance
Missing teeth affect not only your confidence but your health as well. At Total Family Dental, we provide dental implants for patients seeking lasting and beautiful teeth replacements. The titanium posts and aesthetic restorations used in implant procedures enable you to comfortably chew and speak again.
Before Your Dental Implant Procedure
You will first need to consult with our dental team to see if dental implants are the best option for you. During your initial consultation, we perform a thorough examination, complete with X-rays to gain a clear picture of your oral health. Ideal candidates have healthy gums and jawbones that can sustain dental implants. If bone loss, or resorption, has already occurred, our dental team can perform preparatory procedures that include bone grafts and sinus lifts.

The post of your implant serves as a prosthetic root and may take about six months to heal and fuse with the bone. After placement of the post, our Torrance dentist affixes a healing cap which protects your implants while you recuperate. With the post securely integrated, the aesthetic restoration of your smile can begin.
Our implant dentist designs crowns with the contours of your surrounding teeth in mind; this ensures a natural aesthetic and comfortable experience.
Permanent Implant Restoration Options
With dental implants in place, you can enjoy renewed function and health. Our custom restorations are made from porcelain, a highly stain-resistant material, further enabling you to smile with confidence. These implant-supported restorations mimic the appearance of natural teeth for seamless smiles that satisfy our patients' goals.
Our restoration options include, but are not limited to:
- Single Unit Crowns
- Implant Dental Bridges for Multiple Teeth
- Implant-Supported Dentures
Benefits of Dental Implants
Unlike adhesive based or cemented prosthetics, dental implants are a permanent teeth replacement option that actually improves dental health. Implant-supported restorations do not require the alteration of neighboring teeth to be held in place.
If you already use traditional dentures, our team can retrofit them to attach to implants. Dental implants provide stability to ill-fitting dentures, which slide during meals and speech. With implants in place, your dentures will prove more useful and preserve your health.
