About the Practice

PermaDent Dental Implant Center is a one-of-a-kind dental specialty office in Torrance, California. What began as one of the only dental centers in the world devoted exclusively to dental implants when our doors opened in 1986, PermaDent continues to lead the South Bay in implant dentistry. Today, our dental implant specialists, Drs. MariaElena Rodriguez and Perry Klokkevold, showcase a level of expertise that is unmatched in the area.

After placing more than 15,000 dental implants over the years, we are so confident in the success of our implant dentistry that we offer a Lifetime Implant Warranty. That warranty is unavailable anywhere else.

At PermaDent, not only are our surgeons experts in dental implant surgery and their related procedures; our entire dedicated staff is intimately familiar with and expertly trained in the entire dental implant process. We give each patient our full attention, helping them every step of the way from the moment they enter the office. Our team also devotes extensive time to teaching each patient about dental implants and overall dental health.

The PermaDent Dental Implant Center is fully equipped with the most advanced technology and provides all the services patients need in one location, from cutting-edge technology such as the dental cone beam CT scan to a state-of-the-art operatory where we perform implant surgeries.

Patients can count on comprehensive care covering periodontal treatment, tooth extraction, and treatment for gum recession, as well as numerous types of dental implants, from same-day implants to All-on-4® that anchors a complete set of dentures with only four implants. Additionally, we offer emergency dentistry for patients when unexpected dental problems arise.

At PermaDent we define ourselves with one word: Integrity. We do only what is absolutely right for each patient, regardless of finances, insurance, or other obstacles. We use only the most reputable products on the market and offer unmatched expertise, resulting in exceptional outcomes, both functionally and aesthetically.

Patients receiving dental implants at PermaDent Dental Implant Center gain new teeth that look, feel, and function like their natural teeth, or better. To learn more about dental implants or to schedule an appointment, call the office or use the online tool.
