Three Uses for Dental Implants

Some of the most common requests for dental treatment we at Ron Nourian DDS get are for dental implants and porcelain veneers. As your comprehensive and cosmetic dentist in Sherman Oaks, Dr. Ron Nourian feels that it’s important for his patients to know what options are available to address their needs. Implants are no different. In fact, here are three benefits of investing in this state-of-the-art treatment option:

Replacing Missing Teeth

Did you know that implants are superior to all other types of tooth replacement options? That’s because these artificial “roots” mimic the form and function of your natural teeth. As such, our dentist in Sherman Oaks can use them as stand-alone tooth replacements for one tooth or all of your teeth. Their integrity makes your new smile just as strong (if not stronger) than your original one.

Supporting Dentures

Implant stabilized dentures provide added security and confidence in your day-to-day life. There are a variety of different implant denture options available at Ron Nourian DDS. One type is a removable overdenture that snaps onto your implants, for easy maintenance and affordability. Another option is a fixed prosthetic that is permanently attached onto as few as four to six implants in key points throughout the jaw.

Improving the Health of Your Other Teeth

If you still have natural teeth that you’ve been able to preserve, getting implants can help you to keep them healthy. How? Because implants (unlike conventional bridges) do not require altering the shape, health, and integrity of your neighboring teeth. Implants also reinforce the bone in your jaw, to keep other teeth upright and in place.
