Dental Implants in Poway, CA

The most popular way to replace missing teeth.

What Are Dental Implants?

A life-like tooth replacement.

 

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:

  • A small titanium post placed under your gums, which replaces your tooth's root.
  • An abutment, which permanently secures your new tooth.
  • A crown or restoration placed on top, which looks identical to a natural tooth.

With proper care, your implant will last for decades, if not a lifetime!

When a tooth is missing, the surrounding bone structure is not stimulated and slowly begins to deteriorate. This causes that "sunk-in" denture look, making you appear older than you are.

By replacing your missing tooth with a dental implant, the implant post will serve as an artificial tooth root and prevent bone loss and promote new growth.

TYPES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS

There are multiple options!

A SINGLE CROWN OR FIXED BRIDGE

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.

IMPLANT OVERDENTURES AND PARTIAL DENTURES

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.

BAR OVERDENTURES

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.

FIXED PROSTHESIS (TEETH IN A DAY OR ALL-ON-4)

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.
