Having a beautiful smile is important to people all over the world, and if you live in Beverly Hills, California, you know that having that gorgeous California smile means everything. Your smile is how you meet the world, and it’s usually the first thing people notice about you.
Tooth loss can occur because of dental neglect, but you can also experience tooth loss because of accidents, injuries, or health issues. Fortunately, cosmetic tooth replacements like dental implants allow you to restore the beautiful smile you deserve.
If a tooth can’t be saved through other methods, it may need to be extracted and replaced. Dental implants mimic the design of your healthy, natural teeth, and if you don’t tell people you have implants, they will never know.
A dental implant consists of a screw planted directly into the jawbone. This screw serves as a replacement root for a missing tooth. Then, when the screws have healed and fused with your jawbone, the implant is capped with a porcelain crown.
At Dr. Ravon’s office, there are three types of implants that are popular.
If you’re not a good candidate for immediate implant placement, you can still benefit from an efficient and convenient early implant. Implant surgery and extractions are a two-stage process, with your implants being placed in as little as two weeks instead of the standard six-month waiting period.
With immediate implants, Dr. Ravon places the implants immediately after he extracts your irreparably damaged tooth. Immediate implants are a fast and convenient alternative, and you don’t have to wait six months for your implants.
While titanium implants are made of metal, zirconia gives patients a metal-free solution for their implants. Zirconia implants are perfect for patients sensitive to metal, but they’re also remarkably strong and can withstand constant biting, pressure, and chewing.
