Dental Implants Sherman Oaks

Dental implants Sherman Oaks represent a revolutionary step in dental care, providing a permanent solution to tooth loss. Our clinic in Sherman Oaks Smile Studio specializes in dental implant services, offering patients state-of-the-art treatments to restore their smiles with natural-looking, durable teeth.

Understanding Dental Implants

Dental implants are a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of 3 main components:

Titanium Post

It acts as a replacement for the tooth root and is surgically inserted into the jawbone. Titanium is used because of its strength and ability to fuse to bone, known as osseointegration. This fusion provides a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.


Once the titanium post has integrated with the jawbone, an abutment is attached to the post above the gum line. This component serves as a connector between the titanium post and the replacement tooth or teeth.

Crown or Prosthesis

The part of the implant resembles and functions as a natural tooth. For a single tooth replacement, a crown is used, which is custom-made to match the color and shape of the surrounding teeth, ensuring a natural appearance. For multiple missing teeth, implants can support fixed bridges or dentures.

Why Choose Dental Implants Sherman Oaks?

  • Durability: With proper care, implants are designed to last many years, often for a lifetime.
  • Functionality: They restore chewing power, allowing patients to eat their favorite foods without hesitation.
  • Aesthetics: Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth, enhancing your smile and confidence.
  • Oral Health: Unlike other tooth replacement options, implants don’t require altering adjacent teeth, which preserves more of your natural tooth structure.

Our Dental Implants Treatment Process

Initial Consultation:

  • The first step of consultation involves a complete checkup by your dentist.
  • They will examine your mouth in detail by performing X-rays or 3D imaging to help them decide which treatment option is best for you.

Preparatory Procedures:

  • You might need a bone graft if your jawbone isn’t strong or thick enough for the implant. It is where a piece of bone from another part of your body or a special bone grafting material is added to your jawbone.
  • If the tooth you’re replacing has yet to fall out, it must be removed.

Implant Placement:

  • Your dentist surgically places the titanium post (the implant) into your jawbone. This post serves as a new root for your missing tooth.
  • The tooth implant needs time to bond with your jawbone, a process known as osseointegration. It can take several months, but it’s crucial for providing a solid base for your new tooth.

Abutment Placement:

  • Once the implant has bonded with your jawbone, an abutment, a small connector, is placed on top of the implant. It can sometimes be done together with the implant surgery or as a separate step after healing.
  • The abutment securely connects the new tooth (or crown) to the implant.

Crown Placement:

  • After your gums heal around the abutment, your dentist makes impressions of your mouth to create a crown that perfectly matches your remaining teeth.
  • This crown is then attached to the abutment, either fixed permanently or made to be removable for cleaning.


  • You’ll see your dentist for regular checkups to ensure everything is healing well and the implant, abutment, and crown function as they should.

Oral Hygiene:

  • Caring for your implant involves brushing, flossing, and possibly using special tools to keep the area around the implant clean.

Before And After Dental Implants

A dental implant bridge is a dental restoration that combines the technology of dental implants with a dental bridge to replace multiple missing teeth. Unlike traditional bridges, which rely on natural teeth adjacent to the gap as anchors, an implant bridge uses dental implants inserted into the jawbone as the support structure.

Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. The ideal candidates for dental implants typically include individuals who:

  • Have one or more missing teeth
  • Have a jawbone that’s reached full growth
  • Have adequate bone to secure the implants or can have a bone graft
  • Have healthy oral tissues
  • Don’t have health conditions that will affect bone healing
  • Are unable or unwilling to wear dentures

Coverage varies by provider. We offer financing options and will work with you to maximize your benefits. Consult our team today for the most affordable dental implants available.

The cost of dental implants can vary widely depending on several factors: the expertise of the dentist or oral surgeon, the implant’s material, the need for additional procedures such as bone grafting or sinus lifts, and the type of dental insurance coverage you have. 

  • Single Dental Implant: A single dental implant can range from $1,500 to $6,000 per implant. This price typically includes the implant post, abutment, and crown.
  • Multiple Dental Implants: For numerous teeth replacements, the cost increases and can range from $6,000 to $30,000 or more, depending on the number of implants and the case’s complexity.
  • Full Mouth (All-on-4): Full-mouth reconstructions, such as the All-on-4 procedure, can range from $20,000 to $50,000 per jaw.

I love Dr. Niki! I had a last minute appointment and she was able to squeeze me in. She gives the best injections and walks you through the process. The office is so chill and so comfortable, we were listening to Mariah Carey music. 100% recommend her!

I had been to two other dentists because I wanted to get veneers. i feel like no one understood exactly what I wanted but Dr Niki. she explained everything so well i never felt rushed during the consult and she literally answered all of my questions. I was not looking for anything fake. I was very picky and she delivered with such a great detail. she was gentle and so nice.

Dr. Niki did such a great job with fixing my chipped tooth in such a quick turn around! Her and her staff were wonderful in guiding me through the process and kept me informed on what to expect, and the tooth looks like it was never chipped! My previous dentist moved so this was a great experience for starting with a new dental office!

Dr. Niki and her team are all amazing. Needing work done on your teeth is not always fun nor something to look forward to, but Dr. Niki is a great Dentist that knows what shes doing, is informative throughout the whole process, and genuinely cares about her patients. While in the chair I have no worries and she has my complete trust. I will see no other Dentist but her. The Hygienist Cristina is also amazing and does amazing work, my gums dont hurt like at other places from the past who tend to overdo it. Theres also a special assistant there that knows a great deal and is very efficient. She places my fillings, has made a few temporary crowns for me, and seems to be very experienced. Everyone there is very informative and ready to answer all questions very clearly. The front office staff seems to have everything in order as I am in and out with very little to sign or provide since my first visit. All my information is there and they run my insurance ahead of time in order to provide me, and all patients im sure, with details on what the insurance covers and what I would have to pay out of pocket for my visit/procedure. Clear and transparent interactions. Like I said, Amazing Team.

Amazingly quick and painless filling. I loved the optional shot before I left to counteract the Novocain. By the time I got home my mouth and lips were totally back to normal.

Dr. Zarabian’s office is extremely welcoming and professional. Unlike other medical and dental offices I have been too, I was taken to the dental room and seen by the doctor right away. Dr. Zarabian and her staff made me feel comfortable and informed when discussing all my treatment options and when completing my dental work. I highly recommend this dental office!
