Achieve The Smile You’ve Dreamed Of
“We create, or try to create, works of art using a medium that is as fascinating as it is challenging – the individual's smile and its integration into the face. There is no duty more noble than this. In contrast to other fields of medicine that also shape and create, everything we sculpt is immediately transparent and visible to the patient and his or her family. We perform a surgery of emotions!” —Dr. Borzoo Ahmadi, DDS

Dr. Borzoo Ahmadi, DDS, has devoted his career to crafting natural-looking restorations to help his patients live more confident, engaged lives. Read on to learn about advanced techniques for tooth restoration with dental implants in Beverly Hills.
With dental implants West Hollywood patients have a premier choice for a permanent replacement for missing teeth. In this restoration method, posts crafted from medical-grade titanium are introduced into the jawbone, where they anchor permanent porcelain crowns or bridges. To place them inside the bone, a small incision is made in the gums, and the implant is placed with the aid of a special drill. Then the implant is left inside the bone for healing, a process called osseointegration. At this time, the body makes new bone around the implant that gets fused to the implant surface and creates a very strong bond. The implant, combined with the crown attached to it, will look, function, and feel like a natural tooth. One or more implants can be placed to restore the complete dental arch. Dr. Borzoo will collaborate with you on a treatment plan that restores optimal function and rejuvenates your smile to beautifully and naturally enhance your confidence.
Dental implants build a long-lasting foundation for oral health while boosting your self-image and quality of life. For people who have lost one or more of their teeth, dental implants carry life-changing benefits:
Anyone who has experienced tooth loss may be a good candidate for dental implant placement. Dr. Borzoo will learn about your medical history to ensure implants are the best choice. Dental implant failures do happen in very rare cases. The risk factors that can increase the failure rate are:
If gum disease is present, Dr. Borzoo will first focus on therapies to build periodontal health in preparation for the implant procedure. He can also suggest alternative treatments such as porcelain bridges if implants are not the best choice for you. However, for many people, dental implants are an excellent way to restore a beautiful smile, improve the strength and integrity of the jaw, improve facial contours, and prevent future problems that can develop from missing teeth.

What Are My Options?
There are various options to restore missing teeth with dental implants. We can replace one tooth, a few teeth, or even your entire upper or lower set of teeth with dental implants. Here is how it works:
The crown is anchored to the implant body using a special titanium screw.
A titanium piece (abutment) is secured to the implant, connecting the dental implant to the crown. The crown, which looks exactly like a natural tooth, is kept in place using a special cement.
Individual dental implants can be placed to fill in a single missing tooth or to address multiple noncontiguous missing teeth in separate areas of the mouth.
For people who are missing multiple teeth next to one another, the best option may be to place a smaller number of implants and then use them to secure bridgework. Anchoring porcelain bridges with implants provides a durable result with a less involved procedure than introducing a titanium implant post for every missing tooth.
Dental implant procedures can be performed under local anesthesia with regular dental injections or with IV sedation. Although implant placement is not a painful procedure, sedation options are always more convenient due to the ultimate comfort provided during the procedure. A procedure placing one dental implant will usually take approximately one hour. Naturally, more implants will take longer. In the past, implants could not support a prosthetic tooth until they were fully integrated into the bone, a process that usually takes about four to six months. Now it is possible to perform a “same-day implant” procedure, which allows our patients to have a temporary crown on the implant while the implant is getting fully healed and getting ready for the final prosthesis. In this way, our patients will leave our office with cosmetically pleasing teeth right after their surgery. Patients typically leave a dental implant procedure with temporary teeth in place.
The healing time depends on the bond’s quality, the patient’s age, and many more factors. After the healing period, the implant can act like a healthy and strong root to carry a new implant crown.
We will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions and ongoing support after your procedure. Make sure to follow these instructions carefully, attend all scheduled follow-up visits, and always contact us with questions you may have. Our guidelines will include information about managing any discomfort during early recovery and keeping the area clean to ensure excellent healing. Maintaining a healthy smile in the long run will require good oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings and check-ups. Avoiding sticky or hard foods, as well as smoking, will help keep both implanted and natural teeth beautiful and strong for years to come.
In this video, Dr. Borzoo explains proper implant care.
Dental implants are the optimal treatment for those who have experienced tooth loss because of their permanence, durability, and seamless integration into the surrounding dental structures.
As the implants integrate with the jawbone, they become stable and secure, preventing issues such as shifting or bone loss commonly seen with traditional dentures. Dental implants blend imperceptibly with surrounding teeth, completely rejuvenating the appearance of your smile and helping you take pride in your appearance. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime, allowing you to step into a new phase of confidence and health.
Since the titanium implant needs to be embedded all the way into the bone, the most important factor in the success of the implant is having sufficient bone. It is absolutely necessary to obtain a bone CT scan before proceeding with implant surgery in order to define the quality and quantity of the bone in the surgery site. By using the digital planning tool, the size (length and width) and the exact location of the implant are defined. Then a surgical guide is fabricated in order to eliminate any margin of error.
In cases where there is not enough bone available, extra bone grafting procedures need to be performed in order to rebuild the lost amount of bone. The anatomy of the upper back area of the mouth is close to the upper jaw sinuses. In many cases, in order to place an implant in the upper back area, the sinus is in the way of our implant placement. In these areas, implant placement is done with an additional procedure which is called a SINUS LIFT and consists of pushing the floor of the sinus higher. Most of the time, this will be done at the surgery appointment and is very easy and painless.
