Dr. Ira J. Moin is an experienced implantologist who is dedicated to helping patients achieve the results they desire. If you are looking for a strong, beautiful tooth replacement option, dental implants may be right for you. Our Encino, CA dental office offers both dental implant placement and restoration procedures and will help you achieve the results you want. Read on to learn more about dental implants, the types we offer, and how you can schedule an appointment with Dr. Moin.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are designed to completely replace your natural tooth. Implants are prosthetic tooth roots that are surgically placed into your gum and allowed to fuse to your jawbone. This allows the implant to become a permanent part of your mouth, lending strength and stability to the restoration. After the implant has healed, we then load it with a beautiful new crown. The crown is crafted to look and act just like your natural tooth.
Dental implants offer many great benefits to patients who are missing one or more teeth. Dental implants are:
- Strong. They restore almost 100 percent of your natural chewing power.
- Beautiful. They are crafted to blend in with the rest of your teeth for a neat, authentic appearance.
- Long-lasting. The average lifespan of a dental implant is 20-25 years. Depending on your situation, they can even last a lifetime!
If you are looking for a tooth replacement option that very closely mimics your natural tooth, dental implants may be for you. A single implant will blend right in with surrounding teeth and offer you the chewing power and appearance necessary to return to your normal life. To learn more about how dental implants can help you, schedule your free consultation with Dr. Moin.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 dental implants are designed to completely replace a full arch (or even a full mouth) of teeth. We will strategically place four implants (two near the front of the arch and two near the back, at an angle) to offer the support needed for a full arch of replacement teeth. This denture offers a higher level of stability and chewing power than traditional removable dentures. If you need a full mouth of replacement teeth, but wish to avoid the hassle of living with removable dentures, All-on-4 dental implants may be for you.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are designed to be easier to place than traditional implants. Because of their smaller diameter, less healing time is also required. In fact, traditional dental implants often require a substantial amount of healthy jawbone to be present — mini implants do not require as much available bone and can be placed in patients with a certain degree of bone loss. Mini implants are a great alternative to traditional implants and can be used in a variety of situations. To find out if mini dental implants are right for you, talk to Dr. Moin.
We also offer implant-supported dentures. These dentures are designed much like removable dentures, except that they are anchored to your jaw using implants and a bar attachment. We also do implant-supported bridges, which are essentially implant-anchored partial dentures. We will work with you to help you determine which option is right for your specific situation.
Immediate Temporary Placement After Extraction
Our goal is to help get you looking and feeling great as quickly as possible. In some cases, it is possible to immediately place a temporary restoration directly after your natural tooth is extracted. Depending on your situation, this option can help you get the improved appearance and functionality immediately. When you visit our office for your consultation, ask about whether you might be eligible for immediate placement.
