Latest Advances in Science, Technology, and Techniques

Dental implants are widely regarded as the superior method for replacing missing or irreparable teeth, surpassing other approaches such as root canal therapy or endodontic surgery. However, by collaborating with Dr. Nicolas A. Ravon, one of the world’s foremost authorities in periodontics and rehabilitative dentistry, our practice is able to offer state-of-the-art techniques and technologies that are unparalleled in Fresno, California or beyond. Our specialty practice, Nicolas A. Ravon, DDS, MSD possesses a global reputation due to Dr. Ravon’s demonstrated excellence in various fields of dentistry.

The aforementioned techniques and technologies greatly facilitate the attainment of maximum comfort, security, convenience, and optimum aesthetic and functional outcomes from treatments personalized to suit your unique traits and requirements.

Dental Implants for Enduring Oral Health and Attractive Smiles

Dental implants are highly regarded in the field of dentistry due to their ability to accurately imitate the look and structure of natural, healthy teeth. These cylindrical-shaped posts are meticulously placed within the jaw using biocompatible materials, allowing them to seamlessly merge with surrounding tissue. As a result, dental implants become an integral part of the jawbone and provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth such as crowns, bridges, or dentures, giving them a similar stability and function as natural teeth. In comparison to conventional bridges or dentures, dental implants offer superior stability, function, comfort, aesthetics, durability, and patient satisfaction.

Thanks to the considerable and focused expertise and experience of Dr. Ravon, we are able to enhance this gold standard process with a range of distinctive signature services. These exceptional offerings comprise:

  • Zirconia implants - Zirconia presents a metal-free alternative to titanium implants. Not only are these implants appropriate for patients with metals sensitivities, but research has demonstrated that they are incredibly strong and designed to withstand extreme, consistent biting and chewing forces.
  • Immediate implants – Using this approach, Dr. Ravon can place any implant you need immediately after the extraction of irreparably damaged teeth. That presents a convenient and fast alternative to the traditional placement process, which requires a waiting period of around six months for the extraction sites to heal.
  • Early implants – Patients who are not appropriate candidates for immediate implant placement can still benefit from a convenient and efficient approach. While extractions and implant surgery are a two-stage process, the implants may be placed in around two to 12 weeks instead of waiting for six months.

Furthermore, Dr. Ravon provides appealing options for patients who require complete replacements for either their upper or lower arches through the utilization of the All-on-4 and All-on-6 systems. These systems refer to the number of dental implants that are strategically positioned to secure a denture. This technique involves a minimal number of implants, often as little as four, to provide support for an entire arch of teeth. By using this method, the expenses, time commitment, and level of trauma associated with the implant denture procedure are substantially decreased.
