Our Long Beach, CA dental team delivers oral surgeries with your comfort in mind. Our safe, advanced sedation dentistry services help us keep every patient comfortable, including those who experience dental anxiety, have special healthcare needs, or are undergoing a more lengthy procedure.

Dr. Karimi is an expert in advanced tooth replacement solutions, including permanent tooth restoration using dental implants! If you're missing one or more teeth, dental implants are widely known to offer long-lasting, natural-looking results.
By implanting titanium posts into the jawbone, dental implants provide a space for luminous crows to be attached. Dental implants are durable and lifestyle-friendly, allowing patients to continue enjoying the foods they love without dietary restrictions.
We offer the following dental implant systems:
- Single Dental Implants
- All-on-4® Dental Implants
- Hybrid Denal Implants
- Implant-Retained Dentures
Bone Grafting & Socket Preservation
Periodontal disease can wreak havoc on the jaw bone, making it impossible to support a dental implant without specialized treatment. If you are suffering from this condition, Dr. Karimi may recommend bone grafting (also known as natural bone regeneration) to promote bone growth in the jaw. This treatment allows the jaw bone to begin to strengthen and regenerate itself enough to support dental implants.
Karimi Dental also performs socket preservation as a form of bone grafting that preserves the ridge that surrounds the roots of the teeth. Because jaw bone regeneration often begins immediately after a tooth extraction, we use this procedure to ensure the natural regeneration process occurs safely, leaving a strong, supportive tooth socket for your dental implant. Socket preservation helps your teeth remain in place, stay healthy, and avoid potential bone loss.
Dr. Karimi performs sinus lift surgeries to provide more security for dental implants. Also known as maxillary sinus elevation, sinus lift surgery is performed for patients who do not have enough bone height to support a dental implant, or in the case of sinuses that are too big or too close for an implant. This surgery allows for greater implant stability using a bone graft.
Ridge augmentation is performed after tooth extraction. It involves placing a bone graft directly into the empty socket where the tooth's roots once were, to help recreate the natural shape of the gums and jaw after the tooth removal. Ridge augmentation can prevent deterioration in the jawbone where a tooth socket once was following a tooth extraction, making it possible for patients to use dentures or receive dental implants in the future.
Ridge augmentation procedures have been proven to benefit the overall health of a patient's smile! They are also known to improve the appearance of the smile and provide the following benefits:
- Recreates a natural bone and gum ridge
- Increases stability for long-term function and oral health
- Reduces gaps between the gums and dental restorations
Tooth extractions can be performed in an emergency procedure after trauma or injury, or as a preventive measure, such as wisdom teeth removal.
Dr. Karimi performs tooth extractions for patients experiencing pain and discomfort, or who have a tooth damaged beyond repair due to injury or infection. Depending on the location of the tooth, a simple or surgical extraction may be performed. Dr. Karimi will always perform a thorough exam and take a set of digital x-rays before any extraction, to determine the severity of the damage and design the best treatment plan.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Most patients get their wisdom teeth removed in their late teens or early 20s, but Dr. Karimi will use his advanced technologies and diagnostic tools to determine the healthiest timing for you or your child to undergo the procedure. While not every patient will need their wisdom teeth pulled, leaving wisdom teeth untreated can cause pain, orthodontic issues, and even severe infections.
Dr. Karimi and his team perform a selection of wisdom tooth removal surgeries, including extraction of partial bony impacted wisdom teeth!
