What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a great option if you are looking for a permanent tooth replacement solution. The implants consist of titanium posts that are anchored into the jawbone to replace the roots of missing teeth and create a foundation for prosthetic teeth. Once the implants are in place, they can support dental crowns, bridges, and dentures. They are also the only solution that replaces the roots and crowns of missing teeth to give you the feel and function of natural teeth.

Am I a Candidate For Dental Implants?

dental implants in WhittierThe success of your dental implant procedure will depend on your eligibility. While adults with missing teeth are usually good candidates, you need an adequate jawbone to support the implants for stability. Your oral health should also be in good shape to create a healthy foundation for the restorations and prevent future complications.

In case of any oral health issue like gum disease, it is vital to treat it before getting your implants. Also, pretreatments, including sinus lifts and bone grafts, can enhance and strengthen your jawbone, providing the necessary bone mass to adequately support dental implants. Our dentist will evaluate your oral health situation and provide advice about your suitability for dental implant placement.

Our Whittier Dental Implant Solutions

Our implant solutions in Whittier include dental implant placement, implant-supported restorations, and retreatment. We also perform tooth extraction whenever necessary before your implants. When you visit our practice, our dentist will first examine your mouth and evaluate your overall health before planning your treatment.

After ascertaining that implants are appropriate for you, our dentist will surgically place the implant posts into your jaw with utmost accuracy and precision. You will then take time to heal and allow the implants to bond fully with your jawbone. Once you recover, you will come in for your implant-supported restoration to complete the implants and restore your bite function and smile.

Here are our available implant-supported restorations.

Crowns: We provide implant-supported crowns to replace a single missing tooth.

Bridges: Dental bridges replace multiple missing teeth in a row. One bridge can replace up to three missing teeth.

Dentures: We offer full dentures for an entire arch of missing teeth. Our implant-supported dentures are beautiful and durable for long-lasting results.

We utilize computer-guided surgery to improve efficiency during dental implant placement. We also work with a board-certified anesthesiologist with the experience and skill to administer sedation and make the procedure as comfortable as possible. You can choose between oral sedation, which keeps you conscious, and IV sedation, depending on your needs.

Sinus Lifts and Bone Grafts

If you have insufficient or weak jawbones, bone grafts and sinus lifts are available to boost bone density and volume and help you qualify for implants. Bone grafts involve transplanting specific amounts of healthy bone tissue into the affected areas to facilitate bone regeneration and growth.

Although a sinus lift is similar to a bone graft, it is done on the upper jaw near the back of the mouth where bone loss has occurred. The name stems from a vital step in the procedure where we first have to lift the sinus membrane to make space for the healthy bone tissue.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the best solutions to tooth loss due to their reliability and convenience. A few of the benefits of Whittier dental implants include:

  • Restoring your ability to chew, speak and smile confidently, just as you would with natural teeth
  • Permanently fusing with the jawbone for lasting results
  • Supporting surrounding teeth and preventing them from shifting
  • Preventing bone loss by providing constant stimulation to the jawbone
  • Withstanding the pressure of grinding and chewing just like natural teeth
  • Natural-looking results that boost your smile aesthetics and confidence
