We provide the leading dental implants treatment for our patients at Burbank City Dental. Dental implants look, feel and function as natural teeth would. Implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into the jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. They are composed of a synthetic material like metal. With dental implants, patients can achieve a natural smile with a comfortable fit. Our periodontist, Dr. David Farivar, strives to provide the best comprehensive periodontal care for our patients.

What to Expect
Patients will meet with the dentist one-on-one for a consultation appointment. The dentist will perform a thorough dental exam to evaluate the patient’s oral health. Other necessary exams may be performed to ensure that the bone is strong enough to support the dental implant. If the dental implant treatment is recommended, patients will meet with Dr. Farivar to discuss the treatment process. He will spend time educating the patient on the entire process including all procedural and recovery details.
Dental Implant Benefits

No slips like dentures
Fixes gaps and misalignments
Surgery will be required to prepare the area and place the dental implants. Patients will be placed under anaesthesia for this procedure. Once the procedure has been completed, the implants will need to heal into place and allow for bone tissue to build in order to anchor the permanent crown. For some cases, metal posts may be placed during a follow-up appointment to connect the tooth. Patients should meticulously care for implants to ensure long-lasting results and maintain good oral hygiene.
