A young man smiling

No one deserves to walk around with an incomplete smile. Whether you’re missing one, multiple, or all your teeth, dental implants in West Hollywood by Dr. Oshin can restore smiles with a level of greater stability and functionality. Oftentimes, patients with only one missing tooth find it hard to believe that a single tooth implant can give them back their smile, but it can, and it will not only look but feel completely natural. Find out how you can take back your smile and your confidence and call our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Oshin.

Tooth Replacement Options

Fixed Bridge

If you prefer the non-surgical route, a traditional fixed bridge can restore the look of your smile; however, it cannot offer the full restorative benefit of a dental implant. When pursuing a fixed bridge, your dentist in West Hollywood will need to prep your natural teeth on either side of the gap, filing down the teeth to make sure the dental crowns fit snugly. Your natural teeth will serve as the anchors for your prosthetic, which is composed of three dental crowns fused together.

Single Tooth Implant

A single tooth implant requires Dr. Oshin to surgically place and position your implant, offering your restoration the stability it needs. The implant will sit within your jawbone and support the dental crown, giving you a seamless, blended smile.

What Are Single Tooth Implants?

Single tooth implantsPatients looking for a solution that keeps them out of the dentist chair for longer and provides the full capability to eat, chew, and speak with confidence, a single tooth implant can do all of it. These individual titanium posts are surgically placed into your jawbone after Dr. Oshin makes a small incision in the gum line and drills a hole into the jawbone. After he has carefully placed the implant, he will stitch up the area and send you home to heal.

Over the course of 3-6 months, the implant will fuse to the bone in a process known as osseointegration. After you’ve fully healed, you’ll return to have the abutment and custom dental crown placed. This will complete your dental implant placement and create a show-stopping smile you can feel confident about.
