Losing one or more teeth can be a devastating experience, both for your oral health and sense of self-confidence. What’s worse is traditional replacement solutions like dentures and bridges can’t give patients the lifelike, natural-looking results they need. Here in West Hollywood, Dr. Oshin is happy to recommend a revolutionary alternative – dental implants. Implants are precisely designed and beautifully restored, creating a final result that’s simply exceptional in every way. Contact our office today if you’re interested in an implant consultation, or if you’d like to learn more about our comfortable, quality approach to care. Dr. Oshin also welcomes patients from the nearby areas of The Valley, Beverly Hills, and beyond.
Dental Implant Placement
So why are dental implants the right choice for West Hollywood patients? The answer is simple – they’re designed to replicate the entire structure of the tooth, including the root beneath the surface of the gum line. While those focused on aesthetics might not find this necessary, the truth is the jawbone suffers without tooth roots in place to stimulate it, leading to deterioration, additional oral health problems, and even a hunched facial appearance over time. Implants can prevent these issues from happening, keeping your appearance youthful and natural-looking.
The first step of the implant process is surgical placement into the jawbone. This allows the new “roots” to create a strong bond with natural bone and soft tissue, setting the stage for a lifelike restoration. For this procedure, Dr. Oshin will recommend patients to a trusted implant specialist who’s conveniently located in the same building.
Dental Implant Crowns & Prosthetics
Once patients have successfully healed from their implant placement, it’ll be time to return to our West Hollywood office so Dr. Oshin can design and place gorgeous, high-quality restorations on top. When restoring a single tooth, our team uses an E-Max or Zirconium dental crown to seamlessly replace the missing structure while leaving surrounding healthy teeth intact.
When restoring multiple teeth, Dr. Oshin may recommend an implant-retained prosthetic as a simpler and more affordable solution. These appliances are similar in appearance to traditional dentures and bridges, but they’re designed to securely attach to your new implants, creating a much sturdier and more confident fit. They can be fixed in place or removable, depending on the patient’s preference. Either way, we know you’ll be amazed by how natural your newly improved smile feels!
