Dental Implants in West Covina, CA
The Process From Start to Finish
Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, our doctors are able to place single stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implants can be placed at the same time as a tooth extraction – further minimizing the number of surgical procedures.
Dental Implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. While our doctor performs the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting if necessary, the restorative dentist (our dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. Our dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.
Bone & Socket Grafting
When you have problems with the bones and joints in your jaw, bone grafting may be the answer. Following trauma to your bones, we can transplant bone tissue around an implanted device to help your bones grow correctly.
After finding that a bone graft is right for you, we can provide a tooth extraction and socket grafting. Through this procedure the remaining tooth socket should decrease in size and we will fill the hole to eliminate the cavity to avoid shifting teeth. In the end, your teeth will not only be aligned correctly, but they will also look great.
Call us today to discuss your needs, and we can help you decide if a dental implant, bone graft, or socket graft is right for you.
Dental Implants FAQ
What is a dental implant?
When you’re missing a tooth or multiple teeth, we can use a titanium screw to replace them. They are a popular alternative to a dental bridge because your existing teeth don’t need to be changed in the process.
What is the cost of a dental implant?
The overall cost of your dental implant depends on each specific patient. The cost will depend on how many teeth you need replaced.
Is a dental implant right for me?
If you’re missing one tooth or multiple teeth, we will help you decide if you’re a candidate based on the state of the bone that’s available. If you are healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, then you are most likely healthy enough to receive dental implants. We will evaluate your dental and health history beforehand.
What different implant options do I have?
You may choose from a simple single tooth replacement to a multiple teeth replacement or a full arch replacement. Your procedure will be based on how many teeth you’re missing.
What is involved in the dental implant process?
- Initial Consultation: During your first exam, we’ll take X-rays, discuss your medical needs and take impressions of your gums and teeth.
- Procedure: We will install the implant in the opening of your tooth. You will be given a prosthesis as a temporary measure before the crown is installed.
- Recovery Time: Your jaw bone will grow around the tooth during this three- to six-month healing time.
- Abutment: After the healing time, we will place an abutment on the implant. Soon, your smile will look perfect!
Can I have a dental implant if I have dentures?
Many patients have trouble chewing foods and ask if we can provide them with a dental implant. The answer is yes; you might be a candidate for a dental implant. We can provide implant-based solutions to secure your dentures. In the end, you’ll be able to eat and speak comfortably with your dentures.
How will dental implants affect your life?
With dental implants, you will be able to eat, drink, and talk with no worry. In most cases, dental implants will positively affect your quality of life. No longer will you be embarrassed because of dental problems!
