Among the Top Dental Implants Centers in Burbank

Dental implant procedures are our primary service at SmileOnImplants. We can provide single dental implants fully restored with the abutment and crown. The temporary crown helps support the gum line and will minimize any changes in the shape while healing, and the abutment creates a lifelike support so that the final crown can be cemented over it. 

Advantages of a Single Dental Implant

  • Replaces the lost tooth’s root structure and becomes a fixed part of your mouth
  • Look and feel just like real teeth
  • No moving around inside your mouth 
  • Allow for normal eating and talking
  • No risk of the implant coming off or being noticeable 
  • Can be maintained with regular oral hygiene and dental checkups
  • No one will be able to tell they aren’t real
  • Boosted self-esteem and confidence 

What to Expect During Your Consultation

Before any procedure at SmileOnImplants Dental Centers, you will come in for a free consultation with Dr. Pourshirazi. This consultation includes a CT scan, doctor consult, and a meeting with our treatment coordinator regarding financing. Our main goal for this consultation is to educate you about your treatment options.

Dr. Pourshirazi utilizes visual aids such as the CT scan and even a 3D printed model of your own jawbone to help you understand where any deficiencies and infections of your jawbone are, how the implants work, and where the bone grafting will be done if necessary. 

Dr. Pourshirazi will determine your needs, go over the pros and cons of a single dental implant, answer any questions you have, and walk you through your personalized treatment plan. After about 20 minutes, you will then speak with our treatment coordinator about financing options.

Dental Implant vs. Bridge

  • Replaces the tooth without impacting the health of adjacent teeth
  • A single dental implant looks better and more natural 
  • A dental implant is easier to maintain than a bridge
  • A dental implant better preserves the bone because it integrates with the jawbone
  • The cement that holds the bridge in place can allow bacteria to decay the teeth 

How Much Does a Single Dental Implant Cost?

A fully restored single dental implant, custom abutment, and a full contour crown is $3,500. This does not include the extraction cost or bone grafting cost, which will vary depending on the type of graft.

I went for a consultation for an implant for one tooth. I was very happy with the encounter. Dr. Pourshirazi was absolutely wonderful. He took the time to explain all the steps to which I would be subject to. When I went back for the procedure, he promised me it would be painless, and you know what? He kept to his promise. I did not feel a thing. I was certainly amazed…I simply love this dentist and the facility. They treat you so nice and make you feel like family instead of just another patient. My previous dentist never made me feel like that. I would recommend this facility to anyone who wants to have any dental work done proficiently, and pleasantly.

One Convenient Location

All doctors and technicians on our team work together in the same location to help prevent you from having to experience multiple visits at different offices. This reduces costs and travel time.

Single Dental Implant: The Procedure

Before your procedure, we will ensure that you’re comfortable and pain-free, with both numbing and sedation. Your surgeon will extract the tooth in question if needed, but if your tooth is already missing, this step can be skipped. Your gum will be cut, exposing the bone underneath. Your surgeon will then drill a hole into the bone for the implant to be placed. This implant will become the “root” of the tooth, and will eventually fuse with the gum tissues. 

If no bone graft is needed, recovery for a single dental implant is three months. During this time, it will fuse with the surface of the dental implant and permanently fix the implant to the bone. This process is known as “osseointegration”.

You will return and we will uncover the implant or remove the temporary tooth that was loaded on the day of your treatment. We take a full digital impression, send it to our in-house dental lab so that our technicians can fabricate the custom titanium abutment and the full-contour zirconia crown. We take pictures (including the shade of the adjacent teeth) so that we can match the color of the implant tooth as close to the adjacent teeth as possible.

Once we receive the abutment and crown back from our lab, we’re ready to fully fixate them together onto the dental implant. At this stage, the treatment is complete.

Placement: What Makes Top Dental Implants?

The position of dental implant placement is key to the success of your treatment. A dental implant should be placed where it’s fully covered by bone, and at a certain depth. The angulation of the dental implant is also very important, as the site is being prepared for the dental implant. Many times we’re working with areas of the jaw that have very minimal space. The dental implant is 3.5mm wide and must be placed into a space that is 5.5mm wide. The face bone is very thin. If the implant is too close to it, it can resorb and the implant can fail. This is why placement is incredibly important, and working with dental implant specialists is crucial.

Cosmetic Concerns

Shade, shape, and the size of the teeth are usually the main concerns for cosmetics when it comes to achieving top dental implants results — but the biggest cosmetic concern is the missing teeth during the healing phase. We address this issue with a temporary crown which is loaded on the implant, but there are conditions for this. 
 
The first thing to know when it comes to single implant treatments is that the only temporary teeth we load on the same day of placement are teeth in the anterior region.

Single implants placed in the posterior region. i.e., the molar region aren’t loaded with temporary teeth and are buried underneath the gum for the healing phase. They are then uncovered and restored after 3-5 months of healing. 

The implant that was freshly placed has to have great stability in the jawbone so that it’s able to withstand any accidental chewing during the healing phase. We will instruct you not to chew with the tooth during the healing phase. If you do, the implant can fail — hence, the need for initial stability of the implant and the “no chewing” rule. 

If we don’t load the implant with a temporary tooth on the same day, the other option is a removable temporary tooth for the time of the healing phase. A flipper or Essix retainer are the options.

Additional Procedures

If you need an extraction and grafting, we may do this first and then have you return at a later date and place the implant. Ideally, we like to extract and place the implant on the same day, but in some locations it’s in the best interest of the patient to graft the site first, let it heal, then have them return so we can place the implant.
