Single Tooth Replacement
with Dental Implants


Smile Wide, Smile with Confidence!

Feeling self-conscious about your missing tooth or wobbly dentures?
You're not alone. Over 100 million American adults are missing at least one tooth.
Bring back your natural smile and your self confidence with functional and aesthetic dental implants. An ideal alternative to fixed bridges or removable partial dentures, a dental implant can actually replace your missing tooth without compromising the quality of bordering teeth.
Since Dental Implants attach directly to the jawbone, an implant looks and feels like real teeth, and they prevent bone loss and gum recession at the same time. Don't let your missing tooth affect how you chew, smile or live your life. Bring back that ear-to-ear grin with an effective, permanent dental implant.
Call (818) 956-6611 today to find out how dental implants can help you Course of treatment

Installing the new implant tooth Step by Step The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Call (805) 928-0340 to schedule a consultation appointment and to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.
Before the procedure
The dentist makes a first examination and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.
Installing the implant
The implant is installed. At this time, a temporary tooth is provided that allows you eat and function like normal almost immediately. The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.
Attaching the new crown
The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic tooth. The new tooth is installed for life. No additional treatment is needed.
End result
You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. Do your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean and
Alternatives To An All-Crown on Implant
Tooth-supported fixed bridge
A traditional bridge involves grinding down adjacent teeth to support the bridge. It is a stable solution with good esthetics and function that is fairly easy to install. However, this alternative has two main disadvantages: continuous bone resorbtion in the edentulous area, and sacrificing healthy teeth on behalf of the bridge.
Removable partial denture
This is not a permanent alternative to a lost tooth. It is unstable and loosely attached, which affects both function and comfort. A removable partial denture is made of plastic - a material that can't create the same esthetic result as a ceramic crown. The benefits are few but do exist: adjacent teeth aren't affected. It is easily and quickly installed and relatively cheap.
Resin-bonded bridge
This alternative has some clear advantages: it is quickly installed, functions well and, since it is made of ceramic, it gives a high esthetic result. Moreover, natural healthy teeth aren't affected. But it is not very permanent. The resin-bonded bridge will eventually come off - probably after just a couple of years -and will then have to be reinstalled at additional cost.
