Why Should I Get Dental Implants?

dental implant illustrationWithout teeth, there are no longer roots to support the jaw bone and gum tissue. Bone density diminishes the longer a missing tooth is left untreated. Unlike some traditional restorations that sit on top of the jawbone and gums, dental implant posts integrate with the jaw, restoring stimulation to the surrounding tissues. They also stop other teeth from shifting out of alignment and keep your face looking youthful and full.

Dental implants feel and function naturally and provide a permanent solution for missing teeth. Implants are the only option for tooth replacement that mimics the root and the crown, which provides exceptional support and multiple health benefits. Our goal is to ensure that your implants deliver outstanding stability and comfort.

The Implant Process

Our experienced Yorba Linda dental team uses a combination of advanced skills and innovative technology to deliver dental implants with optimal results. The entire dental implant treatment happens in four stages.

  1. Planning: We begin with a thorough evaluation to determine whether you are a candidate for dental implants, what kind of prosthetic you need, and how many implants will support it. Bone density, dental alignment, the health of your remaining teeth, and overall oral health all play a role. Our office uses advanced imaging to design the most effective treatment plan. We also have a mobile scanner that allows us to come to your home or office when necessary.
  2. Placement: Next, your dental implants are surgically placed. Depending on the number and position of the implants, this may take a single visit or multiple visits to complete. We use high-quality materials and surgical microscopes to make your implant placement precise.
  3. Resting: After all the implant posts have been placed, your bone and tissue will need time to heal. During this phase, the bone fuses to the implants, making them a permanent part of the jaw and ensuring they stay secure under regular chewing force.
  4. Prosthetic Placement: Finally, we will fit the implant with a prosthetic crown, bridge, or denture custom-made to fit your needs. All of our restorations are metal-free and fabricated in a trusted local lab. With your new implant, you'll be able to speak, eat, and smile with confidence and give you the freedom to enjoy your life to the fullest.

We pay careful attention to all the implant process phases because we understand that each step is essential to a successful recovery and your continued oral health. Dr. Lee and Dr. Park provide comprehensive dental implant treatments to replace one tooth or many.

Additional Implant Options

Dental implants are highly versatile and combine perfectly with different prosthetics. A single implant post topped with a crown is a standard treatment, but other options include:

Implant-Supported Bridges: A regular fixed bridge uses two healthy teeth to support one or more prosthetic teeth between them. Implants can provide the support instead, so the healthy teeth need not be altered.

Implant-Supported Dentures: Traditional dentures require adhesives for adequate suction, and over time may need adjustments to remain comfortable. Dental implants provide a stable foundation for custom dentures and help stop bone resorption. Some options allow them to be fixed or removable, and our team will recommend the best choice for your smile.

All-On-4®: We use the All-On-4 method to replace a full arch of upper or lower teeth and effectively replace traditional dentures. Four implants placed at precise angles secure your custom prosthetic to your jawbone and provide a comfortable and functional restoration.

Helping You Qualify for Implant Treatment

These services will strengthen your overall oral health and provide the best result for your implant treatment. Periodontal disease weakens the gum tissue and ligaments surrounding your teeth and needs to be addressed before receiving an implant. Scaling and root planing, frequent cleanings, and antibiotic treatments will restore your oral health and create an optimal environment for dental implants.

Bone grafts and sinus lifts build up and reinforce your natural bone so it will be strong enough to hold an implant post firmly in place. Special materials or donor bone is placed along the dental arch where it regenerates and helps increase jawbone density. After a few months of healing, you will be able to undergo implant treatment. At Smile On You Dentistry in Yorba Linda, all team members are available to help you understand the implant process and what you can expect before, during, and after placement.

Caring for Your Dental Implants

You'll care for your implants like you would your natural teeth by brushing twice a day and flossing. Consistent oral hygiene, good eating habits, and regular visits to our office will keep your implants and your overall oral health protected for years to come.
