Dental implants with a difference in La Habra
Dental implants have become the preferred method of replacing missing teeth. However, all implants and placement methods are not equal. The doctors at Summit Dental in La Habra, Dr. Mario Castellanos, Jr. and Dr. Josue Robles, take extra steps to ensure predictable, successful implants.
A dental implant replaces the root of a missing tooth with a tiny screw made of biocompatible material. It is placed into jawbone during a brief but well-planned oral surgery. The small soft tissue incision heals quickly, and over time, bone fuses solidly to the implant. That creates a firm base for a crown or other restoration. The new tooth functions, looks, and feels just like a natural one and requires only normal care. With good oral hygiene, it can last a lifetime.
The Summit Dental difference
Many models of dental implants are available in a variety of materials and shapes. One size does NOT fit all. Our dentists select the exact type of implant that best suits the patient’s situation, minimizing need for bone grafting and risk of future problems.
How do they do it? Dr. Castellanos and Dr. Robles use sophisticated diagnostic equipment to generate a 3D model of the patient’s mouth. This is done in every case, simple or complex, and is included in the cost of the procedure. The doctors simply believe that this step is essential in accurately assessing bone density and creating a precise blueprint for implant placement.
Dental implants are versatile
- Stand-alone restoration for a single missing tooth.
- Replace multiple missing teeth – even an entire arch.
- Anchor a fixed bridge.
- Secure a denture. As few as four dental implants provide an incredible level of stability; much more than can be achieved with a good fit and denture adhesive.
