Dr. Tigran Shahmanyan, DDS Performs Surgically Guided Dental Implant Placements

With 20+ years of experience under his belt, Dr. Tigran Shahmanyan is one of the most renowned dentist in Whittier, CA. His contributions in the field of dental surgery took a new turn with his specialization in performing surgically guided dental implants. Almost no one wants to visit the dentist due to fear of painful procedures, especially when it comes to dental implants. With this in mind, Dr. Shahmanyan aimed to leverage the latest tech in the dental industry to place implants that would dramatically reduce the pain his patients could potentially experience.

Even a single missing tooth can have a drastic impact on the face. It impacts not only a person’s appearance but self-esteem as well. Aside from the constant aches, Dr. Shahmanyan often found his patients self-conscious about the fact that their missing tooth forbade them to smile freely. Although the common dental implant procedure is a solution to this problem, he wanted to offer a solution that made the experience painless for his patients.

Common dental implant procedures can go horribly wrong if a dentist makes the slightest mistake in misplacing the anchor and/or crown. In fact, according to reports, most dental implants are not a complete success. Even the slightest inaccuracy in the placement of an implant results in pain and, more often than not, multiple side effects – like chronic headaches and jaw discomfort.

Dr. Tigran Shahmanyan’s number one priority has always been to create an experience for his patients that involves the least amount of pain possible. Performing surgically guided implant placements does just that. Sky Dental uses the latest technology to build digital 3D models of the patient’s jaw to slowly place the implant in his/her mouth. This innovative procedure has the following benefits:

  • Inflicts much less pain for the patient, if any at all
  • Exponentially increases placement accuracy
  • Eliminates the need for multiple visits. (Most patients sail through the procedure in just one visit.)
  • The implants stay intact and last considerably longer.

Patients who have already undergone this procedure always recommend that anyone in Whittier who wants to get a dental implant should schedule a consult at Sky Dental.

When asked about the process of surgically guided dental implants, Dr. Tigran Shahmanyan said, “My aim was always to bring the patients’ smiles back. I understand how helpless my patients feel when they talk to me about their toothless faces. I only wonder what I would have done if I had faced the same thing. Honestly, traditional dental implants usually come with a level of pain and discomfort for the patient. The process of uprooting a broken tooth sends patients in a state of frenzy. I don’t want my patients to feel that way, whenever possible. So, I invest a lot of time and energy into specializing in surgically guiding the dental implants.”

Sky Dental is one of the most reliable dental clinics in Whittier, CA and surrounding cities. With Dr. Tigran Shahmanyan leading the team, it is not surprising to see why so many patients trust Sky Dental with their smile. With state-of-the-art tools and experienced dentists, this dental clinic vows to bring back the smiles on the faces of the patients as quickly, efficiently, and pain-free as possible.

Sky Dental

There are several areas of dentistry that we specialize in. Just below you will find information on each of those services and a description of them. We also cover details on what a visit to our office would be like.

General Dentistry

Do you need to have your wisdom teeth removed? Maybe you need a root canal instead. These type of procedures are pretty common and we do them regularly here at Sky Dental.

Other services that we offer include making or repairing dentures, crowns, fillings, bridges, and oral surgery. Our staff in Whittier is a dedicated team and is led by an experienced dentist who has a great deal of experience in all of those areas. He can provide you with pain-free procedures.

We are able to handle all the different procedures under one roof at Sky Dental. This eliminates the need to go to different specialists. Being able to get everything done in one place reduces hassles and headaches.

Family Dentistry

Our office specializes in family dentistry and we’re fully equipped and able to treat each member of the family. We make the treatment of your loved ones a priority and we provide them with the oral health care that they deserve. Sky Dental can help you protect your teeth from gum disease, toothaches, tooth loss, and getting into a situation where you need more expensive procedures. We can help you regain a healthy and attractive smile that you’ll look forward to showing off. Getting your children started with proper oral hygiene is important.


When you have a missing tooth or a way to anchor substitute crowns for teeth then a dental implant can be placed. In most situations, they are the best way to replace missing teeth. There are many dental practices that are not prepared to offer this procedure.

Putting implants in incorrectly is a mistake made more commonly than you might think. It can cause a number of complications as well as chronic headaches for a patient. You don’t want this to happen to you.

We use a surgically guided implant placement which gives you the most efficient implant you can get. The offices of Sky Dental use 3D models of your jaw to place the implant in your mouth and they can do it in a single session. This means you don’t need to make unnecessary dental visits. To reduce the chances of a mistake when placing an implant and to get a procedure that is done with precision, give us a visit.


Teeth that are out of alignment can cause people to lose their confidence. Braces are being used by people of all ages now and the technology has significantly improved. It’s no longer necessary to have obtrusive and bulky metal braces.

Dr. Shahmanyan and Sky Dental also provide the following services:

  • Invisalign – A clear aligner that doesn’t have the metal bulk of regular braces. You can take the aligner out for eating, drinking, and other activities, so you don’t have to stop eating your favorite foods or give up certain sports because you want straight teeth.
  • Inman Aligner – This treatment is a removable aligner positioned in front and behind the teeth to quickly put them into place. They’re less expensive than traditional braces and can get you results in as little as six weeks.

Teeth Whitening

Things that people do every day like smoking, drinking coffee and other similar activities can stain teeth over time. The office of Sky Dental Whittier can get your teeth to return several shades lighter in a single visit. If you give us a quick call we will be glad to explain the process and even set you up for a consultation.


A person’s front teeth are what everyone else sees first. For that reason most clients want those teeth to look their very best. If illness or injury has damaged your teeth then a great option is to get crowns in a Whittier dentist office like Sky Dental. These are caps made to fit your tooth precisely and fits over them. They look just like the real thing and they will be comfortable quickly.


These are porcelain crowns and they’re made specifically to be as realistic as possible and give a person that genuine appearance. You will be able to use your teeth normally with veneers and you’ll be able to speak and eat without any kind of restrictions. They will function like your natural teeth.

Preventive Dentistry

There’s no doubt that caring for your teeth from the beginning and preventing disease and damage is best. Teeth begin to decay and form cavities and then they develop conditions that are worse. The technology available at our offices allows us to catch the formation of a cavity early and take the necessary action to keep the tooth from getting worse.

Emergency Dental Care

If you have a tooth that’s knocked out and it’s after usual dental hours, if you’re in tremendous pain or your gums began bleeding abnormally then you need an emergency dental clinic to go to. The offices of Sky Dental are equipped to handle that type of emergency. As well as emergency services we can provide fillings that match the color of your tooth for maximum concealment. We also have metal-free and mercury-free fillings available for oral safety.

We Accept CareCredit

Sky Dental accepts and will use your CareCredit to provide you the best oral services in Whittier.
