What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant post is an artificial tooth root made from titanium surgically placed into the jawbone. We use titanium because of its biocompatibility and durability. Your jaw bone and gum tissue will naturally fuse to the post, creating a solid foundation for your new artificial tooth or teeth. Dental implants are used in various smile-restoring solutions, and we work with you to determine the best course of treatment to solve your dental issues. Some of our Costa Mesa implant-supported restorations are:
- Crowns to replace a single tooth
- Bridges to replace one or more teeth
- Dentures to replace many teeth up to a full arch
- All-on-4® to secure your dentures using as few as four posts
What Is the Process for Receiving Dental Implants?
Our process begins with understanding why you are exploring implant-supported restorations and thoroughly examining your current oral health. Should you have any underlying problems, we will treat them first before continuing. Our team will also check to see if you are a candidate for an All-on-4 procedure if you are missing an entire arch of teeth. We use a cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and an iTero® intraoral scanner to take extensive images of your teeth, jaws, and gums for better precision during surgery.
After you're qualified for treatment, our in-house periodontist will surgically place your dental implant posts into your jaw. Once set, the healing process typically takes between eight and twelve weeks. Our dentist will then affix your new custom-made crown, bridge, or denture. We know that dental implants aren't simply about function but also restore the beauty of your smile. Our team strives to match the color and shape of your natural teeth for a smile you will want to show off.
Exceptional Bone Grafts and Sinus Lifts
Having missing teeth for an extended amount of time can lead to decreased bone density in your jaws. Bone loss can also occur if you have advanced gum disease. In order to correct the issue, we perform a bone graft or sinus lift to create a stable foundation for your implant post. Without the proper density, your new implants could become loose or dislodged over time. Our periodontist performs both bone grafts and sinus lifts in our office, so you don't have to worry about seeing a different specialist for the procedure. We prioritize offering convenient and reliable solutions you can trust.
- Bone Graft is a procedure that adds synthetic or organic bone to your jaws to increase density.
- Sinus Lift is a bone graft used to improve the bone density of the sinus wall in your upper jaws.
Dedicated to Your Comfort
Receiving dental implants is a multi-visit process that can seem intimidating and produce anxiety or fear. Our team works with you through the entire process so you feel relaxed and comfortable. We begin by fully explaining everything that will happen and what to expect from the procedure. Once you're confident, we will proceed with placing your implants. Our team also offers various sedation options, depending on your level of discomfort and the treatment being performed. We bring in an anesthesiologist for IV sedation and offer oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide. We're confident in our ability to find the sedation option that is right for you.
