Dental Implants


Due to their high strength, stability, & durability, dental implants have become the go-to treatment for missing or failing teeth. Dental implants restore nearly all of your bite strength and they reverse jawbone loss by replacing the tooth’s roots system.

Although no dental procedure is right for everyone, most people can receive dental implants. We will treat any existing oral health issues before we begin with implants, and those with underlying health conditions need to work with their doctor to ensure that those conditions don’t interfere with your implant placement or upkeep. If you have extensive jawbone loss, you may also need bone grafting before your implants are placed.


Single Dental Implant in Moreno Valley

One dental implant topped with a single crown can be the right choice for someone missing just one tooth. Our team can also place single-tooth dental implants at various points in the mouth if you are missing multiple scattered teeth. These implants are installed using a tiny sliver of biocompatible titanium inserted into the jawbone and topped with a healing cap or a cover screw. After several weeks of healing, the metal will fuse with the bone, and at this point, we will remove the cap or screw and use an abutment to attach the implant to a customized crown.

Implant Supported Bridges in Moreno Valley

An implant-supported bridge is an excellent solution for those who are missing three or more teeth in a row. While a traditional bridge sacrifices healthy tooth structure in the adjacent natural teeth, an implant-supported bridge is anchored to a dental implant at each end. This strong and stable restoration is both functional and highly aesthetic and is a popular choice for many patients.


Implant Supported Dentures in Moreno Valley

Implant supported dentures run the gamut from “snap-on” removable dentures that require just two implants to stabilize, to a full fixed arch of teeth secured on a handful of implants. Both solutions solve the problem of traditional dentures, which tend to pinch and slip. They also restore bite strength and reverse jawbone loss.


Full Arch with 4-7 Implants in Moreno Valley

The full arch with four-to-seven implants is a game-changing solution for those who are missing all of the teeth on the upper or lower arch. We can place a full, fixed arch of high-quality replacement teeth on the same day your teeth are extracted for some patients, avoiding the need to wear a removable denture at any time.


Guided Implant Placement in Moreno Valley

We use high tech tools such as 3D scanning and virtual treatment planning to develop a customized implant placement map for each patient. This helps us show you exactly what to expect, while ensuring that each implant is located and positioned in the best possible way to maximize longevity, functionality, and aesthetics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants

How painful is a dental implant?

Dental implant surgery isn’t painful at all! Just like any other dental procedure, we use local anesthetic injections to ensure that you’re comfortable and pain-free while we work. In the hours after your surgery, you may feel some tenderness and sensitivity at the surgical site, but this is usually mild. Following our aftercare instructions can help manage any discomfort during recovery

Can dental implants be done in one day?

Yes, some types of dental implant restorations can be completed in a single day, but this process can exceed 5 months in some cases. We offer Full Arch with Four-to-Seven Implants, which allows us to extract any remaining teeth, place four to seven dental implants in your jawbone, and attach a denture to the implants all in one appointment.

Which is better, dentures or dental implants?

Traditional dentures only replace the visible portion of missing teeth; implant-supported dentures also replace teeth below the gumline, which is better for your dental health. Dental implants prevent and reverse bone loss in the jaw, resulting in a stronger bite and a more youthful appearance. Implant-supported dentures look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

Can you get a temporary tooth while waiting for an implant?

Many of our patients are concerned about having a gap in their smile while they wait for their permanent restoration to be fabricated. Rest assured, we will provide you with a temporary restoration so you can smile with confidence even while your permanent crown, bridge, or denture is being made.

What can you not eat after dental implants?

In the days and weeks after your surgery, you’ll have some food restrictions, as we want to ensure that your implants heal properly. Biting into apples, carrots, and nuts, for example, can place too much pressure on new dental implants. After this period, you’ll be able to eat whatever you like because dental implant restorations work just like your natural teeth.

Can I replace all my teeth with dental implants?

If you need to replace two full arches of teeth, dental implants are a terrific option. Implant-supported dentures and Full Arch with Four-to-Seven Implants are two potential solutions to consider.
