Dental Implants

If you have a missing tooth, it can cause other kinds of dental problems. Missing teeth cause problems with chewing and speaking and over time, other teeth in the area will shift. It's best to replace missing teeth with dental implants because they are as strong as and designed to blend in with your natural teeth. They can fill that gap in your smile and give you a beautiful, complete, smile.

Dental implants are made up of a titanium post that is implanted into the jaw bone and a ceramic crown that sits on top as a replacement tooth. Together they are as strong as a natural tooth and restore function to your mouth giving you a beautiful smile.

Getting a dental implant in Mission Viejo, CA

The process of getting a new dental implant takes several weeks but leaves you with a strong tooth replacement. First, the titanium post is implanted into the jaw bone during minor surgery. You are numb during this surgery to keep you comfortable.

After the initial surgery, the implant heals for a period of weeks. You wear a temporary tooth cap while your permanent custom crown is being fabricated and the implant heals. During this time, the jaw bone is growing around and fusing to the implant, giving it its strength. At a final appointment, your permanent custom crown is placed and you leave with a new tooth!

To care for your implant, you just need to keep taking great care of your teeth. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Make sure you floss in the area of the implant and remove all debris from around the crown.
