For patients who have lost a tooth, our dental implants can seem like a miracle. Dental implants are artificial teeth that are directly inserted into the gumline. Dental implants are small rods made with a durable titanium alloy that actually fuses with the bone in your jaw just like a natural tooth root. When you lose a tooth, and don’t have an implant, the bone underneath starts to deteriorate. Our Sherman Oaks dental implants keep your jawbone strong and healthy.
Even if you have lost a tooth, you can still enjoy activities like eating, speaking, and smiling with a dental implant. Implant dentistry can restore the smile you’ve lost. Our dental implants are capped with a beautiful porcelain crown that perfectly mimics your natural tooth’s color and is individually crafted to fit with the rest of your teeth. People you meet won’t be able to tell you’ve ever lost a tooth. Our implants are durable and long lasting. A dental implant can last a lifetime. Dental implants are easy to care for too. You can take care of your implant the same way you’d take care of your regular teeth with daily flossing and brushing.
The implant dentistry procedure is simple:
- First, your dentist will clear the space in your gumline to make sure there is room for the implant.
- Next, your dentist will insert the implant directly into your gumline.
- Over the next few months, the dental implant will fuse with your bone just like a regular tooth root.
- Once the implant has fused and your mouth has healed completely, your dentist will secure the beautiful porcelain crown to the abutment. This porcelain crown will function just like your lost tooth.
Losing teeth doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the benefits of a full and complete smile again. Dr. Perlaza and his team in Sherman Oaks are proud to offer dental implants to patients who have lost teeth.
