Want a long-lasting and cost-effective solution to replace one or more missing teeth? Dental implants are the answer!
A dental implant is a restorative dentistry treatment that consists of:
With proper care, your implant will last for decades, if not a lifetime!
Here are the top reasons why dental implants come highly recommended:
Are dental implants right for you? Meet with our restorative dentist, Dr. Joe Nguyen, to find out!
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Joe Nguyen to find out! First, he'll listen to your goals and concerns and review your x-rays, photographs, and records to determine if you're a good candidate.
Then, he'll provide personalized treatment recommendations, taking into consideration your timeline and budget.
Dr. Joe works with a top implant surgeon to plan and place your implant for maximum longevity and effectiveness. After the implants are healed, Dr. Joe will attach your dental implant prosthesis.
The dental implant is placed where the missing tooth was lost. When the implant becomes stable, an abutment is connected to it to secure a dental crown. The tooth-colored ceramic crown then replicates the missing tooth.
If more than one implant is placed, then a bridge can be attached to replace multiple teeth.
Dentures can be secured into place with dental implants. Specialized clips are used to engage the implants and provide retention. Sometimes two implants are all it takes to eliminate the need for messy denture adhesives.
To increase stability and retention, a specialized custom milled titanium bar is attached to the implants. This bar allows the implants to share the forces of chewing. The denture is then clipped onto the bar.
Don't want your denture to fall out accidentally? An implant-retained fixed prosthesis is a perfect way to replace multiple missing teeth. Four or more implants are placed, and your denture or prosthesis is then screwed onto the implants. The teeth are then brushed and flossed in your mouth; they don't come out.
