Dental Implants in Sherman Oaks

A Better Solution for Tooth Replacement

Of the many advances in modern restoration and cosmetic dentistry, dental implants are among the most significant. Implants have changed the way dentists treat patients with missing teeth. This relatively minor surgical procedure has revolutionized tooth replacement for patients across the country and around the world. Contact Sherman Oaks Dental Care & Orthodontics to learn more about dental implants.

The Dental Implant Procedure

A small titanium post is placed in the jawbone in a surgical procedure. This is a minor procedure that only requires local anesthesia. As it heals, the post fuses to the jawbone, creating an artificial tooth root. The healing process takes a few months before the replacement tooth or teeth can be attached to the implant.

Tooth implant

The advantages of implants include:

  • A longer lasting result
  • Preserve tooth supporting bone
  • Prevent bone loss
  • The 95% success rate is better than other tooth replacement methods

Unfortunately, not everyone is a candidate for dental implants. There must be enough healthy bone and gum tissue present to allow for the implant to successfully fuse to the bone. When there is not enough bone, it may still be possible to use dental implants after a process known as bone grafting. This surgical procedure must be performed prior to implants.

How Implants Are Used

Implants are used in several ways to replace missing teeth. For a single missing tooth, a crown is placed on the implant to create a natural-looking replacement. The procedure can also be used to replace missing teeth. An implant can be placed on either end of the space where a bridge is needed and the bridge can be attached to the implant. We also use dental implants in Sherman Oaks for fixed dentures, so you can eat and speak without worrying about your teeth slipping.
