Dental Implants in Rancho Peñasquitos

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a revolutionary solution for missing teeth, providing a durable and aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional dentures or bridges. These implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they serve as an anchor for replacement teeth. By mimicking the structure of natural teeth, dental implants offer unparalleled stability and comfort, allowing patients to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

The Dental Implants Treatment Process

The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months.

Initial Consultation and Examination

During the initial consultation, your dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums and evaluate bone density and quantity. This may involve X-rays and computer tomography scans to ensure there is sufficient bone structure for placing the implant.

During the second visit, the dentist will surgically place the implant into the jawbone beneath the gum line. As the jawbone heals, it grows around the implanted metal post, securing it in place. This healing process can take several weeks or months.

Abutment Placement and Crown Attachment

Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, an abutment – a small connector post – is attached to the implant to securely hold the new tooth. To make the new tooth or teeth, your dentist makes impressions of your teeth, and creates a model of your bite. The new tooth or teeth is based on this model. A replacement tooth, called a crown, is then attached to the abutment.

"I have been a patient at CMDC for 3 years now. This place is truly a gem and I will not go anywhere else! I have seen multiple hygienists and two different dentists, they have all treated me with the best care, respect and great service. I have a lot of sensitivity, they keep that in mind and are gentle. They truly go above and beyond for their patients and I no longer dread the dentist! Thank you!"

The Benefits Of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer numerous benefits over traditional tooth replacement options, enhancing not only your oral health but also your overall quality of life.

Improved Oral Health
Dental implants are unique in that they do not require altering other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health.

Durability and Convenience
Dental implants are designed to last many years, and with good care, can last a lifetime. They eliminate the inconvenience of removing and cleaning dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.

Enhanced Self-esteem and Confidence
Missing teeth can make you self-conscious about your smile. Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth. With a new, full smile, you'll feel better about yourself and exude more confidence.
